2007 and Perseverance

I had great expectations of posting a moving New Year’s piece that would motivate us into the coming year. Then life, along with no internet access, stepped in. So much for motivation. I haven’t even set my goals yet for 2007!

New Years did bring with it something wonderful, though. A few days of cold weather! The mist in this photo drifted into our living room, something the kids thought was too cool. We made it down to the high 50's! Unfortunately the cool weather didn’t last and we’re back into summer.

Scott and Allen left for Zambia and Zimbabwe last Tuesday to meet with the leaders and plan the coming year. They made it to Mongu safely and so far their time has gone pretty well. Please pray that these meeting will go well and the focus will stay on what is important.

School starts on Wednesday and the kids are raring to go back. We will be starting a new school year which will mean new teachers and friends and a bit of adjustment, but I’m looking forward to a good year.

The past few weeks have been challenging for me, and I know that that has been the case for several of you as well. For 2007, “let us throw off everything that hinders us and run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and prefecter of our faith.” Hebrews 12: 1-2

May we persevere together!

  1. Oh, I totally love that scripture. How appropriate! Ya know--I even think the mist is appropriate, too--we should let that be like God's work in our lives and pervade the very heart of our lives and home!!
