The gentle breezes of the Lake Erie shore gave a refreshing hour of delight last week. We've spent much of the past several days in Ontario, Canada enjoying both the gorgeous colors of autumn and the encouraging fellowship of the saints.
In addition to several music concerts, Dad also taught a 'Family LIFE Conference' in Canada. We were so encouraged by the dozens of young families who came, soaking in the teaching of Biblical principles. There was obviously a desire to raise a generation to love the Lord!
Admittedly, this has been a very full trip for our family. Yesterday was actually our first 'free' day since we left on September 9th. There have been many miles of travel, many opportunities to share, many rich conversations. And intertwined have been the moments of 'real life': piles of laundry, schoolwork, grocery shopping and meals, preparations for Branson, finalizing details for our new CD...and the list continues!
But along the way, the Lord has given these moments of rest. Time to soak in His Word and enjoy His creation. Time to pull back from the craziness and rejoice in Him.
And somehow, it's those quiet moments spent resting in Him that enable the rest of the schedule to function. He is faithful!
