At any rate, here are a few pictures from our latest journey ---
Every once in awhile we're able to take in a tourist attraction as we travel. This time, Daddy surprised us by stopping for a couple hours at the Mall of America. Whew! A great place to get some walking exercise!
We all enjoyed an afternoon of riding horses with friends near Spooner, Wisconsin. Our little cowboy just needs his hat!
And now it has been good to be home these couple days and dig into our bread baking, yard projects, correspondence, laundry, and other various 'family life' routines.
As we prepare to re-pack in preparation for leaving again tomorrow, I am reminded of the lyrics to a song our family heard recently. To me this sums it all up -- whether His calling is to load up in a 40-ft bus and head out on the road, or to serve in a community, a workplace, a home.
The activities of working, praying, teaching, cooking, scrubbing floors (or whatever it may be), are to be an outflow of our love for Jesus Christ. What matters most is not the size of the job, but the love behind our actions.
I just want to please the Lord
Be in His will in every way
To be lost in His presence, found in His likeness.
