Our life took a twist in 2015 and we found ourselves (all 7 of us) living with my in-laws and wondering why God didn’t allow us to get into a rental home as soon as we liked. During some parts of the year we lived with them it was like God just allowed me to rest well and enjoy the beauty of nature. I began photographing things like my mother-in-law’s roses and I really dove into birding and photographing local birds.
I don’t have the same time now as I did that year to really delve into some of the things I did. I see those photos and it makes me think this: Rest is beautiful.
Embrace your times of ministry rest or just plain life rest and don’t worry and fret like I did about why God isn’t allowing the next step. He has it all designed well and for a purpose.
