Life is a whirlwind, and we’re grateful for all the Lord has set before us. His blessings are abundant, and we praise Him!
Dad and Mom had an amazing time in the mountains. We’re happy they had a time of refreshment and enjoying God’s creation.
August came to a close with full schedules, and we welcomed September. Last week, we experienced several days of cold and rain–breaking a temperature record from the early 1900s.
For me, days blur together in a whirlwind of editing. We’re almost there, and I’m grateful to everyone who has helped with the project. This is my final week before the book goes to the copyeditor. My to do list is growing for after it’s off.
We love you all! What is something you’re grateful for today?
“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God” (Hebrews 12:2).
So much has happened since our last Random Life. It feels like a lot has changed, and yet things are still the same. But in a way they aren’t.
We shared with you all the news that Anna Marie likely has cancer. How are we dealing with it? We’re grateful we know Who holds all things in His hands. Yes, while what Anna Marie is facing is possibly very serious, none of us are guaranteed another day. I could be in a car accident tomorrow and ushered into the presence of Jesus. We are very prayerful for Anna Marie and being as supportive as we can with their needs while all the time looking to the Lord for what His will is.
January was filled to the brim with work, ministry, helping Christopher and Anna Marie and Joseph and Elissa, and somehow managing to keep up with our personal lives as well. The Maxwell crew has also had their fair share of colds and other similar “bugs,” including John being hit with pneumonia several weeks ago. We’re thankful most are on the mend.
Enjoy a peek into Random Life.
“And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power” (Acts 1:7).
It’s a gorgeous, autumn Sunday afternoon as I prep this Random Life post. We went from temperatures in the 90s the end of September, to temperatures in the lower 30s at night, cool days, and snow predicted for this coming week. Hello, autumn! Hues of orange, brown, and the occasional vibrant red fill the neighborhood and surrounding countryside.
September and October have been full with work, ministry, and traveling for some. We’re grateful to the Lord for His enabling grace.
What is something you enjoy about autumn? I’d love to hear it!
“The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season.” Psalm 146:15
God has been so gracious to us these past seven weeks since our past Random Life. When the girls came home, we jumped into County Fair ministry the next week, and things continued a whirl with things we had going. Colorado truly was a beautiful break from the normal busyness to be together as a family.
Now with summer at a close, we look forward to what God has in store for our autumn season.
“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” Isaiah 26:3
These past 6 weeks have flown by since our last Random Life. It feels hard to quantify all that has transpired. But even through the challenging times, God has been so gracious. We are grateful for His everlasting lovingkindness.
We’re thankful for the addition of new life. Dad and Mom also had a wonderful trip to Alabama where Dad preached for two churches. The ministry is still our heartbeat, and it’s exciting to see the newest project launch:Buying a House Debt-Free, the unabridged audiobook. Watch for more on the horizon. I experienced some delays with making progress on my book but hope to finish the outline soon and be onto writing the first draft.
We’re excited to welcome home Anna and Mary this week. It’s been a long time, and they’ve experienced many challenges. God has answered prayer after prayer and used them mightily.
“Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.” Psalm 63:3
What a whirlwind these almost 7 weeks have been! Quite of few in the family traveled, we welcomed Deborah, kept up with work and ministry, and we said goodbye to Anna and Mary. Yes, the girls are off on another summer of ministry! We’ll have a separate post hopefully later this week asking for prayer.
Summer is here, and we look forward to opportunities to minister, be with the family, work, pursue Titus2 projects, write (hopefully soon for me!), and continue with “normal” life!
Also, Dad’s health is doing great! They’ll probably do an update soon on that.
“But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.” 1 Timothy 6:6-7
