Cousin fun and countryside antics.

This past week in amongst Pete and I ploughing through the ENORMOUS and brain draining SIM doctrinal questionnaire and medical forms, we have all enjoyed lots of time Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles and cousins on both sides of the family.

The boys have made airbed rides slides down the stairs, cycled through the woods in the rain, floated ducks down the stream at a village carnival and generally been loud and energetic.

We have appreciated time to enjoy Gods glorious creation and breathe in the fresh air on the farm where Pete’s parents live. From climbing to ‘the top of the world’ to running down the wooded valley. From riding the quad bike with the farmer to hours staring and sheep and cows. This week has created precious memories and helped us process these past months. We are grateful to God for time as the 5 of us and with extended family.

So as we return to Cambridge this evening, after some not insignificant medicals (more later), we will trust the Lord to help us through this final push to get the PhD thesis finished and the SIM process completed.

Psalm 121

A song of ascents.

1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

7 The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore

he will watch over your life;
8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore
