Uncharted Territory

It's been SO long since I've written a post. I've really lost touch with the blogging world in many ways. Right now as I type, I am listening to one of my many new favorites for music:

Today
(Brian Doerksen)

Today I choose to follow you
Today I choose to give my'yes' to you
Today I choose to hear your voice and live
Today I choose to follow you

As for me and my house
we will serve you
as for me and my house
we will spend our lives on you

Wonderful counseler , Everlasting Fa-ther E-ternal King ,
Lord of hosts willingly we fol- low

Life has been extremely hectic for our family this past while. And life as we've ever known it in this humble abode and city, has changed this fall. Yesterday marked a brand new chapter in our family's life...all three kids entered the school doors. So now begins the learning of what life was like for me before homeschooling came about. Noted though, I don't think I will completely remember that, because His plan is for me to chart a new course in this chapter. Regressing to the past wouldn't really be a hugely great plan...it would underplay all the life learning which has went on between then and now. It's also the beginning of a new ministry year and that brings chaos in itself. Then there's the future to look towards...to search out what His call might be for our family and each of us individually as well.
I have been beginning each day with the words from Brian Doerksen's song and also from Chris Tomlin...

Forever
(Chris Tomlin)

Give thanks to the Lord
Our God and King
His love endures forever
For He is good, He is above all things
His love endures forever
Sing praise, sing praise
With a mighty hand
and outstretched arm
His love endures forever
For the life that's been reborn
His love endures forever
Sing praise, sing praise
Sing praise, sing praise
Yeah
Forever God is faithful
Forever God is strong
Forever God is with us
Forever
Forever

From the rising to the setting sun
His love endures forever
By the grace of God
We will carry on
His love endures forever
Sing praise, sing praise
Sing praise, sing praise
Yeah
Forever God is faithful
Forever God is strong
Forever God is with us
Forever
Forever

He's such a loving and faithful God, even when we might not be so faithful to Him. Life's good...stressful sometimes, feels like we're charting unmarked territory at times and simply learning to adapt to what's around each corner. Yeah...signing off for another unknown chunk of time.
