This is NOT Our Home

We have prayed to simplify all areas of our lives.  The Good Lord has answered our prayers in ways that we did NOT desire.  Yet, we remained steadfast in His providence and He has showered His mercy on us.

We have been brought, once again, to a place of physical and spiritual detachment.  It has been met with an outpouring of charity from family, friends, and strangers.

Through it all we have been reminded that this is not our home.

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If any one loves the world, love for the Father is not in him.  For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the pride of life, is not of the Father but is of the world.  And the world passes away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides for ever. ~ 1 John 2:15-17

We will be moving soon.

Please keep my parents and the S & P families in your prayers.  Their charity towards us was a sweet consolation that has brought us to our knees in thanksgiving.  Our God is a faithful God, He will never abandoned us.  Trust always in Him and be open to the gifts that He places right before you.  They are often in disguise and found in the most unexpected places.

  1. Lena, this is a beautiful post. I am keeping you and your parents and the S and P families in prayer today. God's promises are always carried out! Simplifying and getting rid of the excess in our lives is always a difficult path, but it is the one to greater holines. God bless.
