Sunshine and Ohio blue skies

The sun is shining outside today and it never ceases to lift my spirits. I love sun, I love heat, I love green grass, fresh air and bird song. Can you tell I should be living in some warm sunny place year round? But the Lord had an assignment for us in chilly Ohio so we appreciate sunshine more than most.

It reminds me of this verse from the song 10,000 reasons. It has been running through my mind all day.

The sun comes up It's a new day dawning It's time to sing Your song again Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me Let me be singing when the evening comes
Bless the Lord, O my soul, O my soul Worship His Holy name Sing like never before, o my soul I'll worship Your Holy name

We never know what a day will bring in our life but God does and He can be trusted. I have learned to worship and praise Him no matter what is going on.

As you know the past month was a rough one for us with my mom going home to heaven, but still the words of this song ring true in my heart.

We are so excited to be going to Latvia in April. We will once again be teaching at the Baltic school of ministry. Our topic for the past 6 years has been Basics of Biblical Counseling. We love interacting with the students and have made quite a few life long friendships with some of them. Please keep us in prayer as we prepare to go and especially pray that all the finances come in soon so we can make final arrangements for this trip.

Much love,
