If idle hands were the devil’s only workshop, we sure wouldn’t be an easy target for him. This week we have been running the Advanced Seminar in our home, working on construction, making maple syrup, and preparing for concerts and chalk talks. However Satan also delights in trying those who are busy about the work of the Lord, and thus we would greatly covet your prayers for us during this busy time.
Afternoons from 12:30 to 3:30 are spent listening to the Advanced Seminar at our home with some other families. This time, as always, the Advanced Seminar has been a time of real spiritual encouragement, uplifting, enlightening, and challenge. Although this is my third time through, and much of the information is familiar, I am still learning much that I somehow managed to miss previous times through. I have once more been challenged to trust God more fully in every area of my life, Who alone is in complete control of the universe. I am certainly looking forward to the remaining sessions.
Our construction zone persists in being just that as we continue the finishing. All the wood is on the ceiling, except in the new washroom. We are now making the crown mouldings. This requires “ripping” all the boards twice to get the correct angle on both sides, as the ceiling is sloped. Daddy has done basically all this work, and we who are less meticulously inclined in this area are very grateful for the skill and ability the Lord has given him.
We are also looking forward and preparing for a time at the end of this month (March 28,29) when we will be doing a music/chalk talk programme in Beachburg, Ontario (between Pembroke and Renfrew). If anyone is interested, please contact either the coordinating family at the phone number listed on the poster, or contact us. We would definitely appreciate your prayers for us as we prepare for this time.
Two presentations will be held: one at the Beachburg Hall (Click here for a map to find the Beachburg Hall) and the other at Country Haven Retirement Home. (Click here for a map to find Country Haven Retirement Home.)
2 Samuel 7:28-29
28 And now, O Lord GOD, thou art that God, and thy words be true, and thou hast promised this goodness unto thy servant:
29 Therefore now let it please thee to bless the house of thy servant, that it may continue for ever before thee: for thou, O Lord GOD, hast spoken it: and with thy blessing let the house of thy servant be blessed for ever.
