I’m still processing.
People ask me how we’re doing.
You know they care.
They look you in the eye.
They ask you that deep question.
How are you?
Most of the time I say, “I’m still processing.“
Last night our girls, with the Vermont Youth Dancers, had the opportunity to perform on the stage at Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center.
What an amazingly great opportunity.
It’s been just the distraction we’ve needed.
Watching the girls do what they LOVE.
(There are still tickets available!!!! Just go to Spruce Peak Performing Arts in Stowe!)
But it’s also about being with a Community that has held our family tightly.
Someone asked me, “How are you?”
My answer was,
“Good. God has been faithful in the past, he’s faithful now, and He will be faithful in the future.
I am believing God will use this for great things.”
You know what?
I believe every word of it.
I don’t know what’s going to happen here on the farm.
I don’t even have the energy to make plans for what to do.
Neither does my farmer.
He’s too busy dealing with the tyranny of the urgent to have much time to do anything else.
With limited help resources, at the moment, he is carrying a heavy load.
Yet, through it all he is content.
There is a peace that God offers.
It seems each time we discuss what we need to do, someone shows up at our door to offer a bit of wisdom.
It’s what we need.
Small doses of wisdom.
One step at a time.
Our coffee buddy has dug right in.
He sees a need and he is able to focus and get started.
I can’t even begin to figure out how to thank him.
I can’t figure out how to thank God enough for sending him.
Through our darkest trials this man has literally walked right beside us.
My farmer trusts and relies on him.
So, “How are we doing?”
We’re still processing.
But we’re doing well.
We have seen what God has done in the past.
We see what He is doing now.
And we believe what He will do in the future.
We all don’t have the strength to go through hard times.
It is often too much to bear.
That is why God sent his Spirit.
To minister to us.
To help us.
To show us deep love.
To provide a way, when there seems no other.
God is making a way.
We are working hard to see that.
Sometimes God’s ways are not what we would have expected.
Through it all He is still bringing about a plan that is far greater than I could imagine.
We pray that you will continue to join us as we wait and see what God will do.
