Miles to go. . .

Leaving the RanchStopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

How often have I felt this way?

I promised my readers that I would blog several times a week and yet much time has passed and no word from me. Not that I have lacked the desire or things to share.

I have literally had a very slow journey to make that has taken all my time and concentration.

So here I am finally at three, four, five o’clock in the morning sharing my heart.

For those of you who do not know, my family has been living in Mexico working on a mission and ministry for about four years now. We have not been back to the US for a visit for two years.

Things can be challenging in Mexico. Everyone hears of the violence and problems there. Our experiences are no different. We have received death threats and attempts on our lives.

The difference is that God has always kept us safe. The most recent attacks started this last September and escalated through November.

We moved our family out of our ranch and visited with our attorney and friends in Guadalajara for some time in December.

Then the unthinkable happened. Our three year old son was molested by a man in the community where we were staying. Our whole family was devastated. We removed our family yet again and are in the process of trying to have this man convicted.

The problem is the justice system in Mexico does not seem to work for the people. We prayed extensively and God said to go back to the US to regroup and minister to our son.

So we made the long journey back. It took weeks to drive the Mexican roads in an RV and truck. We did make a few stops along the ways and met with much support.

We look forward to meeting with our supporters in the US and building stronger relationships. We hope to build new relationships too.

In our hearts we know God will be sending us back to the battlefield in Mexico. We are at peace with that most days. The work is great and very rewarding. Right now we are looking for the rest.

Now it is time for me to sleep before the youngest wakes up for his next nursing.

May each of you dear readers receive your peace and take your rest this day.

With much love for you,
