Life has slowed down some with the new book being done. Dad and Mom invested much time and effort into Buying a House Debt-Free, and a number of us also helped out. We’re excited to pick up the books from the printer early in the week. I’m dreaming Moodys again, and Book #9’s outline is in the final stage. Lord willing, I’ll be writing very soon. If any of you Moody readers have ideas for things you’d like to see in future books, I’d love to hear from you.
It is also delightful to see spring emerging, with buds appearing on the trees, grass becoming greener, and some days feeling warmer.
I’m grateful for every day the Lord gives to serve Him. No matter where the Lord has us in life, He always has opportunities to minister. It could be something as simple as an encouraging card you send to a fellow believer, bringing a meal to someone who needs it, or having neighbors over for dinner. May we each be busy about what Jesus wants us to do.
Treasure each moment! Here are random photos from the last two weeks.
“I will sing unto the Lord as long as I live:
I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.”
One thought on “Odds and Ends at the Maxwells’”
Dear Maxwells, Thank you for this lovely writing. The pictures are just precious! I need to share with you a wonderfully treasured moment from the last few days. Out of the blue, I received a letter from a cousin with whom I’d unfortunately fallen out of touch 10 years ago. Although she had been raised Christian, she had sadly gotten caught in the world’s influence and had come away from the Lord. Recently, though, He has been working strongly in her heart, and, with the agreement of her husband, she wrote me. My cousin and her husband met with my husband and me. After hours of talking and prayer punctuated by many tears, both my cousin and her husband asked the Lord Jesus again to come into their hearts. They have also made several changes to their lifestyle in keeping with the directives of Scripture.
I know you have many things going on in your busy lives, but your family has been such an encouragement that I wanted to share the joyful news of this brother and sister in Christ. What a God we serve that He offers the tremendous gift of salvation and then, after we reject Him, He is willing to offer the gift-of-all-gifts again when we sincerely repent, ask forgiveness, and change our ways. My husband and I thank you for the encouragement you have given to share the love of our Savior.
Amen and amen. God is so merciful, and yet just. Thank you for sharing. Brought tears to my eyes and great blessings to my heart.
