Life is full of the unexpected. One never really knows what is around the corner. We fool ourselves and think we have some sort of control on what comes our way, but really, God can bend our future any which way. We are really powerless outside of prayer. Unfortunately, some things have been on our prayer list for so long, that we really don’t think they will ever happen, and are thus taken by surprise when they do. Not sure if it’s unbelief, or just plain going on making the best of the way things are, but sometimes, a sweet blessing pops up and takes us by surprise. This occurred in our home just this week.
Our oldest son moved home. I say home, not because he has ever lived in Idaho before, but because home is where you want to put down roots and grow; where you know you are loved. We are ever so grateful, this son or ours, is finally home and this mama is smiling at the thought of having all her brood under one roof again.
Brent has jumped right into helping Jared and the boys build. Since we are waiting on our fixer upper in CDA to sell, they are pounding away on our place on the hill. I take pictures and the place changes so quickly; I have to go take more pictures before I get a chance to blog.
So, this year begins with the Reidt family continuing our journey at The Wolf Lodge. We are so thankful for this opportunity to grow closer together by building a place where God’s lavish love will be shared. We pray that you will be filled with hope as you embark on the joys and challenges of the coming year.
