Before sharing a couple (Ki Tavo, Deut. 26:1-29:8) nuggets from last week’s Parsha, I wanted to give a quick update and prayer request fro friends and family who read my blog.
Several weeks ago the house we were renting was sold and we were given a 20 day notice to be out. Due to our having livestock (dairy goats) and MAJOR construction project in the area sucking most all rentals off the market, we have been ‘homeless.’ One family from our fellowship has taken us in while we hunt housing, however, an approaching major surgery for one of them will cause us to move to stay with another dear family. The situation has radically challenged all of us in terms of space, harmony, etc. But, stretching is good, even if uncomfortable for the moment.
While we search for a house, we are praying several things: Buy? Rent? Go mobile? Honestly, we are open to anything, but need Abba to give us some clear direction as to HIS will. This has been a good time of ‘soul searching’ and surrender. Please pray with us for HIS clear direction and answer to one of several ‘fleeces.’
One of the negatives of this whole situation is that I am staying considerably farther from work for my twice a day commute, and my eldest is farther from college, meaning we both spend a lot more time in the road as well as my wife and I house searching, etc… Therefore, I have not had time to write and at time not even had the focus to read or write, but the passion is still very much there! My desire is to regain stability so I can better focus and rededicate to the passion of studying and sharing what I am learning. Thanks for your prayers.
On to the parsha.

Here is a verse with the phrase, Continue reading “An update and a couple nuggets from Ki Tavo”
