Swirling Minds...

I just can't get over the change of seasons... and this year seems especially fast. One day it was frigid, the next quite comfortable (read, above 25 C). Things turned green in a matter of a couple of days. From a thick coat to shorts overnight. It's just..... strange, maybe? We're loving having picnics in the back yard, walking in the sunshine, and throwing a Frisbee in the grass. It's rejuvenating. It's fun.

Garry had a great time in Alberta, connecting with various people in mission aviation. The conference was both encouraging and helpful. He enjoyed getting more insight into where mission aviation at large is right now and what those in the community are thinking about and planning for. He was privileged and blessed by spending an evening with his aunt and uncle.... And this  is where I keep getting stuck! Stories that aren't ours to share, people other than ourselves whose lives intersect with ours in incredible ways. And yet it isn't our story. I can't pass it on. So I try to keep things general, but then the blog is.... blah!

The things swirling around my mind might make for interesting reading, but I think not. The schedules and plans and lack of plans and wondering and strategising are no doubt quite like your mind. Then there are the good conclusions, the grand truth of the Bible imprinted on our lives.... but it sounds trite when I pound it out on the keyboard. 

And so, I've just blogged about .... nothing. Which is why I've been putting it off. But alas, it can't be put off forever if I'm to keep my part of the blogging bargain by writing a blog. So, I'll keep pondering and wondering and sharing my ramblings and realities. And being thankful for an amazing group of people who get on here to check on us, to know how to pray for us, to be supportive of what God is doing in and through us. Thank you:)

Our lives may seem ordinary at times and not worth writing about. But God enjoys walking with us as we are walk with Him --- even in what seems like the ordinariness of our lives. Walter Mitty thought his life was so unspectacular and fantasized about adventure. But in the end it was he that found himself on the cover of LIFE magazine for the vital, usually unnoticed, great work he did behind the scenes ensuring that the photos of the famous photographer, Sean O-Connell, got to their right spotlight. All we have to do is seek to give the perfect work of Christ its right spotlight all the time in our lives. In the end, our God does not forget even a cup of cold water given in His name. Our seemingly ordinary and unassuming lives will shine like stars on the pages of eternity, and we will be amazed at what God has done. Press on, sister.
