The Blue House
19 February 11
Our arrival in the Blue House has been a welcome time of re-entering a place of peace and rest. We’ve brought our family through a series of recent upheavals, and it’s here in this paradise that we can reconnect as a family in love and unity.
Before we left Australia, David and I knew that although we weren’t planning anything — we would be alright. However, in the heat of the moment — while we were making decisions about what vehicle to buy and where to go for accommodation and food for our family of little girls — we forgot that our Father has planned our lives in eternity, and He truly is good and kind to us. So we stressed.
In retrospect, we can see that we had nothing to worry about. And we still don’t. Our future is written for us, and the plan is good.
I’m thankful to have a washing machine and a proper bathroom again. David loves the location. And the girls are loving staying in a house again.
One day we will no longer become mired in the pit of worry and stress, but until then, it’s good to have a peaceful place to retreat to. We’re very thankful to be staying in the Blue House, a beautiful cottage on Whangaroa Harbour, close to friends and lovely countryside.
