Plans for Today
I am still busy uploading photos from our trip east of the mountains. I realized that even culling a lot of the photos that were taken, we still have a ton. So, I think that my post about our trip and Elijah's surprise will be in three or four parts. Just so the photos on a single post don't overload anyone.
Also, on a more serious note. We have a lot going on here to pray about, which is part of the reason that blogging has been so light. We've been busy with Lent and Pascha, but also with something that's been looming for a while now. It seems to be speeding up now and it looks like we are in the final few weeks of uncertainty, but it also looks like a major shift, that none of us really wants, nor are any of us happy with how it is coming about, is on the way. The change won't be to something bad, but it is a hard one and it will mean leaving behind a lot of good.
This past year has been one of growing pains and loss and tough decisions. We are hoping against hope that this is not another tearing apart, praying that our will is God's will, but we continue to pray the prayer that never fails: Not my own, but Thy will be done. Please pray with us for discernment, favor and the good of our family.
