My Longing

February 2, 2010
Quiet reading time before lunch!

Well we seem to be recovering from some virus in our little corner of the world; Micah was his usual chatty self tonight and amazingly ate dinner; Dave is still resting but feeling better and ready to get up and go tomorrow. Praise God the remaining three family members remain unshaken; we’re staying healthy and hoping life will resume as normal tomorrow!

Gingerbread Maths!

School has been a little slower, as has everything to accommodate Mama being nurse as well as teacher but we’ve had fun learning at home. I’ve tried as much as possible to stick to some kind of routine which helps N & J keep motivated and focused.

This weeks character study is on being ‘diligent’ so we’ve all had lots of opportunity to put that into practice!

In our bible reading this morning we read Psalm 27; one of my favourites! I was challenged by the cry of Davids heart; ‘the thing I seek the most’ was to be in the presence of God.

Is this the cry of our heart? More than ‘things’ more than popularity, more than success, more than being the best wife, the best Mum, the best…

My primary concern should be to be pleasing to Gods heart, to sit at His feet, to long for His presence, to think about Him, to linger where He is – in everything I do.

His heart
His presence
His approval

“One thing I ask of the LORD,
this is what I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the LORD
all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD
and to seek him in his temple.”
Psalm 27:4

May this be the cry of our hearts this week!

Gingerbread treats for Grandma!

Joel (5) is eager to learn about electronics; Dave has started to let him pull a few things apart so he can learn and explore for himself…this is him in his PJ’s before breakfast making a start on some kind of broken light fixture!!

I trust you’re having a great week and enjoying Gods love and faithfulness in your lives.
