Loose Ends Vol. 1 No. 8

Boy, do I love having another driver in the family...Taryn got her license last week and its amazing how little I've worried about her driving...
especially when I compare it to when Kaitlin first started driving...
"call me when you get in the car, call me when you get to a long stop light, call me when you get there, call me when you undo the seat belt..."

I've done pretty well this week, eating that is, but I have to admit that I don't like the fact that I seem to have food constantly on my mind...the "when, how much, can I have that" is driving me a little batty. I feel like I'm relying a little too much on my flesh, my points, my strength to sort those things out. This lifestyle change is about Him, relying on Him and being obedient. I want to get to that moment where hours have passed and I haven't given any food any thought. That eating to live moment.

Kaitlin is adjusting really well at school, she has her moments of homesickness but keeping busy has helped. She is very excited that she is flying home the first week in October (thanks grandma) and on Monday she is attending a praise band informational meeting to find out about auditioning. Please continue to pray for her...

The days and weeks following September 11, 2001 are still so vivid to me...as we remember this day, I go back to the Words of comfort He gave me during those scary and awful days...Words I shared with our congregation at the Methodist church we attended back then...on Sunday, September 16, 2001...A Call To Trust The Lord...

The Lord has said to me in the strongest terms:
"Do not think like everyone else does.
Do not be afraid that some plan conceived
behind closed doors will be the end of you.
Do not fear anything except the Lord Almighty.
He alone is the Holy One.
If you fear him, you need fear nothing else.
He will keep you safe.
Isaiah 8:11-14 NLT
