3 Busy Months

February 11th 2011

It has been just over 3 months since I last posted.  Since that time I have been on a cruise, started a new school with Bryan, enjoyed Thanksgiving and Christmas, had my in-laws visit twice, and turned in our application for foster care.  The last 3 months have been busy.

The time we spent as a family on vacation was fabulous.  We all got to do things we love to do, and we got to spend some time with friends as well.  Bryan absolutely loves his new school, and his mother is much happier knowing he loves school again.  Having my in-laws visit was great.  Finally, our foster care application got sent after a 6 month delay.

The last 3 months have been busy, but we know it isn’t likely to slow down anytime soon.  We anticipate our family will grow sometime in the near future.  Some might say that what we are doing is ridiculous at the least, some might even say insane.  To have children we don’t know, who have been raised in ways we might not even imagine, come to live with us for an indeterminate amount of time is more then they could handle.  I know it is more then I would be capable of handling alone, but I am not alone.  I have a husband who is a Godly leader, a son who loves the Lord and has a heart for others, and I have God.  I am not alone in this, and God is capable of more then I will ever be.

The past 3 months may have been busy, but I know that what God has planned for us next is likely to make us busier yet.  Busy in a  fabulous way though, busy affecting others lives for the Lord.  I have no desire to end up saying “I could have…but I didn’t have the time”.  If I cannot find the time to do what the Lord is asking of me because I am too busy, then I have allowed busy to become a way of life.  I have no desire to tell the Lord no because my schedule is to full, because I can’t fit it in, or because I’ve filled my life with meaningless tasks.  Busy can be good, or it can overtake us.  I won’t mind being busy, as long as I am busy for the Lord.
