Taking a Break When Life Gets too Fast

Life is going too fast for me to find time for writing, so I’m taking a break.

The last month has been full of teaching commitments, end of the school year events, birthdays, trips, meetings, and home schooling. This week I'm remembering that God is in control as every day brings news of people getting hurt during the political protests here in Turkey.  At the same time I’m preparing for a trip to the U.S. June 11-19. Life is a whirlwind, but God is in the center. 

I will return to my blog July 4th.


Until then, I hope that the Lord gives you joy and peace for each day.

Olive Tree, I'm so pleased to know that today you are flying to the US! I've been watching the TV news and praying so much for you and your family. Surely God is watching over you. May He give you His peace and hope. I look forward to catching up with your blog after July 4.

Blessings and prayers,
Linda

Thanks, friends for all your good wishes. Linda, it's a strange feeling to leave my kids there with protests going on, but I know they're safe in God's hand. (and I told them to stay away from protest areas.)
