The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; Indeed, my heritage is beautiful to me. ~ Psalm 16:6 nasb

Sunday -- On my way to a prairie sunset


I'm having...my usual morning cup of Trader Joe's Irish breakfast tea, with honey and cream.  I have this every morning unless I run out--which I try not to do.  :)

I'm feeling...good health-wise.  And otherwise, continuing to focus on the Lord as our family has been experiencing testing and/or trial these past two weeks.  We have some decisions to make--good decisions--that require prayer and good communication within our family, and which may be leading us down a new path.  This is an exciting thing, but we're experiencing testing that we believe is equal to the move of God upon our lives.  Satan definitely doesn't want us moving forward for God's Kingdom!  So he resists.  And we are standing firm.

Almost set


On my mind...is the court proceeding Danny and I experienced yesterday.  After a long wait, Danny stood before the judge (for a minor fender-bender he had a number of weeks ago), and was assigned to traffic school, and to appear with the class' certificate in hand on December 28.  Ugh.  So this trial continues.  And we still have to pay the fine, plus an extra $40 for traffic school.

I leave you with...a section of a Psalm of fearless trust in God.  Fernando and I read this earlier in the week, and it was a great encouragement to us as we face the aforementioned trials.

The LORD is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the defense of my life;
Whom shall I dread?
When evildoers came upon me to devour my flesh,
My adversaries and my enemies, they stumbled and fell.
Though a host encamp against me,
My heart will not fear;
Though war arise against me,
In spite of this I shall be confident.
Psalm 27:1-3 NASB
