Hey friends. I got a call this morning from Goodfriend. She said, "Look, You can't go so many days and not put up a post. " Sounds like Girlfriend last week right?
Well I know it's been since Saturday and no post. What's up? I've just been busy, and haven't made the time to post. But here I am, and here is an update.
See this sign, I went there on Tuesday night, (to the city counsil meeting), and they welcomed me and the new shop, and "approved" it!!! It was a really nice experience. One person in the audience said under his breath, "Boy, your really brave." I just remembered the scripture that says, "With man this is impossible, but with God, ALL things are possible." Matthew 19:26
Yeah, I'm trusting Him.
I went to Goodwill in Augusta in the afternoon with Sweet Baby Girl and found this, brand new. It would appear to be from L.L.Bean. I've already washed it and am thinking I'll keep it for our house and not put it in the shop. It's as beautiful, and clean, and cozy as it looks.
It is a sunny, windy, cold, day here in Maine. I'm sure it will warm up soon, and we'll all be complaining about how hot it is.
We've sent Benjamin his first care package this week. They really can't receive all that much beyond stamps and chapstick. He was struggling in his last letter, but I think the reality of his decision, combined with his physical, mental, and spiritual exhaustion was coming to a head. I thank God that Benjamin is very capable of meeting all expectations required of him. But mostly that God is with our son 24/7. What a comfort for my heart.
Hugs from Maine
