The next few months are going to feel like a Short Ride in a Fast Machine. This orchestral piece is one of my favorite to play, but it's not a sustainable way to live.
"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." James 1:17
I'm grateful that during our Honiara stay, two other SITAG families with teenagers have also been living in Honiara. Other MKs (who "get" the life my kids live) have been a balm to all of us. At the end of the school or work day, you can almost always find some action on SITAG's little basketball court.
We finally have tickets to go to the village this weekend. As we enter into this crazy wonderful season of our lives (March, April, and May), we ask for your prayers and encouragement. There are so many good things going on in those months (like consultant checking of Ruth and Jonah in Marulaon and seeing many wonderful people as we travel for a month), but that time period will also be full of much change and transition for our family (like Sarah and Benjamin saying goodbye to Marulaon Village).
"Preparation for [change] is an ongoing experience; when a woman chooses to bind herself to an unchanging God, then she too can live with considerable freedom in a swiftly changing world."
