School, Ministry, Acceptance, Celebration

We've spent Wednesday - Friday making  great progress in school. We'll not take a DOD scheduled "spring break" this year. Our two weeks of Japanese exploration was our spring break. We're pushing to be done with school as early as possible in May so we can visit all our favorites spots when the weather turns nice again. 

Thursday,  my team and I,  "turned out the lights in PWOC Japan region." Army OCCH  ordered the restructuring of PWOC International - the ministry tool I've been investing in and through for the past 17.5 years. Personally, I believe this move was short-sighted; but  God will continue to minister to women throughout  military chapels. I've accepted God is after something new - yet to be fully revealed. 

Friday signals the end of our work/school week. We were happy to greet the end of this week. We celebrated the start of the weekend  by joining a lovely couple for dinner at their home.

We continue to research Beale AFB and the surrounding areas. God is good and would not have orchestrated a move to CA without a purpose. We've accepted this as a grace gift from our loving God - regardless of the mechanisms which got us "here."

First time out
 THIS was the highlight of Zander's week. Michael came home from work and said, "Get your bow." 

Attacking the snow pile

I sense we are sure to have many bittersweet weeks in the upcoming months - as we continue to live fully engaged in a land we love; and begin to look ahead to the next step in our family dance. 

Note the pavement in the photo above. We've enjoyed a couple of "warm" days and some big wind....maybe winter is easing it's grip?

Choosing Joy!
