We've been back for a while now but haven't had a chance to sit down.
The canoe trip was wonderful, just Kevin and I, a tent, a cooler of yummy food ie. brie, smoked white fish, tomatoes, a baguette, fruit, etc. some cards, fishing supplies, a hassock (a camping potty), some earring making supplies and it all fit into our wonderful canoe.
We are lacking in pictures because the extra camera batteries went missing, I still haven't found them.

The scenery.

I've started to sell bread in town, so every second day I spend 5 hours making bread.
The business has pulled me away from family and housework, I've consulted my Husband and he has encouraged me to keep at it.
So now God I lift it all up to you, you know my struggles and my fears, please hold me up in this time. I find myself lost most days between who I was and who God is refining me to be. This does actually feel like a desert in the mist of war sometimes, I know what the truth is but somehow it doesn't penetrate. I don't ask why, I just say help.

  1. Looks like you really enjoyed some "Heaven" on your canoe trip - I wonder when that season will come in our lives when Rene and I could do that, as I've been nursing every "canoe trip season" for the past 5 years...and it doesn't seem to be slowing down...well I guess when it comes, it'll be that more precious a gift.

    That is wonderful about your bread making business! Soon you'll be able to employ your children's efforts in that whether it be housekeeping or breadmaking. This seems like a really good fit for you Kelly - even though it may be not the easy route...the easy route is not always the best route as we can all testify.
