Summer update.

Matthew 6:27 And which of you by worrying can add
a single hour to his span of life?

Things are getting a little crazy around here! We are going to do a bunch of home renovations, so we've been apartment hunting and driving around like mad people trying to get remodel details in order... there are too many projects going on for us to stay here, so we decided to make an adventure of it and find a place downtown! We figure we'll probably never have a chance like this again, so we might as well "live it up" while we can. Our tentative life plan takes us back to California in the next couple years (to have babies near family) so we want to take in as much of the Seattle living experience as we can. We've also made a few other changes - our friend and housemate moved out of the basement (which is more of a change than I anticipated, we are taking a break from hosting a community group at our house, and we are working on being more intentional about time with friends, work, and each other. It's a lot to take in all at once... especially when you are me, and don't do well with too much change! While we've been reflecting on this time in our lives, we've been struck with a recurring theme: STOP WORRYING. I tend to fret over things too much! I'm learning to take all of this in stride and remember that life just does this whether we plan on it or not. I'll let you know how it turns out. [Note: thematic art to be produced and shared this week].

Psalm 37:7-8
Be still before the Lord and wait for him.... Refrain from anger and forsake wrath!
Fret not yourself; it tends only to do evil.

Psalm 135:6 "Whatever the Lord pleases, he does."

Amen to that. Whatever happened to summer vacation? Ha, that is long gone. But I totally agree with you that that mantra to "stop worrying" has to be there to be centered on God, but it is so terribly hard to drop everything and let God lead. Thanks for the post, it is encouraging. See you tomorrow!
