It was a week of transition. I am back in the US for a family emergency for a while. I kept up with the project just so that I could have a bit of routine to my day.
I may do the majority of the baking in our house, but Douglas bakes the biscuits. They are so so good.
Like I wrote above, I am back in the United States for a family emergency. This was not in the cards even a month ago, and I am still wondering why. And I know that it’s not for me to know that yet. So I sit and pray for grace to get through this little while.
I am thankful for kind people, who I didn’t know, to open their home to me while I am here. I am enjoying my time in the desert and am thankful for God’s goodness. Not going to lie, sometimes it’s hard to see that He is good. But I have to cling to him with all my might. Where else can I go?
The flora around here is mind-boggling. I am amazed at the beauty of America and how God made it. The diversity of ecosystems blows my mind. And this desert is teeming with different plants than I have ever seen.
A long time ago I worked with some people in a land far away. I am so thankful for these friends. One family now lives here in the desert and she and I met for coffee. She is an author and I spent the evening asking her questions on how the book writing process works. It was such a blessing. I am so thankful for her.
I started earlier this morning and caught the sun as it was rising behind the hills. So much beauty here.
The smell of these tiny flowers is cloying but oh, so wonderful. I had never smelled them before yesterday. Just another piece of God’s beauty given to us.
