Wheat harvest has started, for the next two weeks (give or take) life will be busy. During this time Luke works 12-14 hour days, 16 hours yesterday. I'll be busy taking care of my girls, doing dinners (my sister in law is coming this year, we'll feed the harvest crew together). I don't think I'll have much time to update in the coming days, but if anything changes about Marie I'll let my prayer warriors know:)
Right now, she's okay. She's been having a lot of trouble with bowel movements the last few days, so I spend a lot of time rubbing her little tummy.
I want to share with you a story that our pastor told one Sunday. It is about a dying man, and he prayed to God for help. I can't remember the exact words of our pastor but the gist of the story is this. The man prayed for the Lord to ease his pain, the Lord sent skilled doctors. The man prayed for the Lord to lighten their load, the Lord sent people with meals, people to help keep house, people to help with his business. The man prayed for comfort, the Lord sent friends and family to be with the man. Though the Lord did not come right out and answer the mans prayer, the burdens remained, the pain was there, the man still needed comfort, he sent people to help in the hours it was needed most. Those people were like God's hands, doing the work, helping. I think that all of you are the answers to our prayers. Thank you:)
- Ps 67:6
- Then the land will yield its harvest, and God, our God, will bless us.
- Lu 3:17 -
- His winnowing fork is in his hand to clear his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his barn, but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire."
