The end of fall


The leaves are still falling from the trees and there is a chill in the air.  The puppies come in and follow me all around the house.  We tidy and clean and then I come and sit behind my computer and start making notes of my days.  It has been almost two years now that I have worked in an office.  I miss the buzz and the busyness of the people around me.

My husband works till about 19h00 at night and then only gets home after 20h00.  He works most weekends because the pay is good and the project needs to be done.  He is a great man; I admire him and think the world of him.  He works hard and loves us all.  The children don’t know how lucky they are to have a dad like him. 
With winter knocking at our door I am grateful for spending time with the children and being able to collect them from school and check their homework with them.  It is stressful at times when Pieter doesn’t do his homework and he doesn’t tell me he had something to do.  He always seems to forget – my goodness.

Well I am hoping my tulips will come up this year and bloom, I am looking forward to seeing what they will look like.  Then when spring arrives we are hoping to see our second grandchild.  The knitting is going strong at home so hopefully I would have completed something nice for this little one.  But let's get through this winter and hopefully the Lord will open a door for me to go back to work again.  In the mean time I am enjoying the time in God’s word and learning as much as I can.  We too have sessions in our lives and this is what I am learning.  How great is our God, He cares about us even when we believe He has forgotten us.

Acts 2:38-40 (ICB)38 Peter said to them, “Change your hearts and lives and be baptized, each one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 This promise is for you. It is also for your children and for all who are far away. It is for everyone the Lord our God calls to himself.”40 Peter warned them with many other words. He begged them, “Save yourselves from the evil of today’s people!”
I say we are too caught up in our own little worlds, we believe that we are capable of so much and that when times are difficult then we call on the Lord Jesus.  When nothing happens and we do not receive answered prayers we lose hope and start looking for new ways to get out of the mess we find ourselves in.
In the International Children’s Bible we read that “change your hearts and lives and be baptized,”  the words that stood out for me is “change your hearts and lives.”  I have been thinking about these words.  Something m…
