Though all love originates in God and is for that reason God's own love, yet we are permitted to catch and reflect back that love in such manner that it becomes our love indeed, in much the same way that sunlight reflected from the moon becomes moonlight. - A.W. Tozer

From Red Dirt Country, With Love

School, pick-up repairs, and just generally spending time with family have filled the last month. There may also have been some fishing, as indicated by the picture at right. Zaya caught that gar. Mim later caught a catfish that they brought home to eat and dissect. Just in case you wondered, fish intestines are disgusting.

In the midst of all that busy-ness, we've found where we will be working next, and we're looking forward to starting a new adventure in about a month and a half.

In July we will haul our long-suffering RV down to Dunnellon, Florida, to begin work with I-TEC. I mentioned this organization in a previous post, but if you aren't sure what they are and what they do, please follow the link and check them out. It's a fascinating place, and Aaron is very excited to be working with them soon. He went down for one week already, and is eager to get started on some of the projects that are in the works. There will be more details on that as I receive clearance to release them.

We'll be living in our RV, at least for a while, so there are a few things that need a little attention before making another cross-country (cross-half-country?) trek. The pick-up, Vimes, is looking much better, or will be when the Bondo party is finished and the painting can begin. I'm amazed at the work that's been done on it, almost exclusively by Aaron, with the help of his brother and Dad when they can spare the time. I've got pictures for all the car-geeks out there and will post them soon. Maybe I'll make Aaron write that blog!

Meanwhile, the kids and I are finishing school. We hope to be done by the end of this week so they can enjoy a little summertime fun before we head down to Florida. By "done" I'm thinking something different than they're thinking, but formal, sit-down, nose-in-the-books study will be greatly reduced, which is their main concern.

  1. I love the little photo bomber in the background, but that gar is hideous.
