There is no doubt that God has a sense of humour! Yesterday I got this far on a post for the blog before I took the girls to a friend’s house, fully intending to finish it later that day:
We’ve been having gorgeous HOT weather (I know, I know — this would still be considered a COOL summers day in the Okanagan, but hey, I’ve been here 10 years and I’ve acclimatized ;)) and the days have taken on a slow relaxing sort of routine that involves lots of outside time for the girls and lots of playdates and lots of just plain summer fun . . .
Of course, other things have slowed down for the summer too. I dropped off our last ThankYou card at church on Sunday . . . we got our list of financial supporters from YWAM
I was still going to write about the nice surprise and encouragement of finding a one-time donation we didn’t know about on the list, but how other than that, support raising seems to have slowed down completely — though not unexpectedly, since it IS the middle summer . . .
Well, I got to my friends house, and she handed me a stack of postdated cheques . . . okay, I’d have to revise what intended to write in my blog, but I could still make it work, surely . . . (by the way, we’re OVER 20% of monthly support committed now — YAY 🙂 )
I didn’t get back to my blog last night (Grandma & Grandpa took the girls overnight, and Kevin & I had a long overdue date night . . . much more fun than playing on the computer 🙂 )
So today I pulled up my saved post, and was ready to finish it. I reread it, looked out the window and realized that it was grey and about to rain . . . it seems that nothing in my post yesterday applies to today . . . I thought the slow days of summer were supposed to be a bit on the monotonous side . . . and I seem to have this feeling that God is laughing at me 😉
