A New Season

It's a new season around here: Drew and James are back to high school, Rachel returns to Purdue this weekend, and David and Laura have left our homeschooling world for the new land of traditional Christian school. Our lives look different!

It's going to take awhile to adjust to our new schedules -- who does what chore, and when; how we can make it to four different sporting events, and how do we fit all our puzzle pieces on this table we call life!

I'm looking forward to finding more margin this year. Sometimes I feel like finding margin is a full-time job! It shouldn't be as hard as it is to come by. I'll have to get even better at saying no.

I'd like to find space to come back here to my blog more. I have thousands of pictures and hundreds of memories from my trip to England and Scotland this summer to share. I have so many books to talk about, and recipes to share, and ideas, and art, and beauty, and the list goes on.

In the book of Psalms, the psalmist talks about "singing a new song." He means that it's a new time in his life, a new day, a new beginning, especially one coming after a difficult season in which laments have been sung. So as our family turns this corner into a year of great change I feel like it is a season of "singing a new song" -- who we are and Who we are focused on have not changed, but it's a new beginning and a new starting point from which to move forward.

I just wanted to thank you for writing your wonderful Christmas book. I have a lot of Christmas books but when Brenda Nuland blogged about it, I felt I had to buy a copy of your new book. I was not disappointed! Blessings on you and your family and wishes for your new beginnings. Of course, in some ways every day is a new beginning. I feel this way even though I am 74 years old and a widow!
