Wanting More

Just a quick update.

The past few weeks have been very busy, which included a trip to Peterborough to meet Maureen (once again - I hope there are many more) followed by a whirlwind trip to Hamilton to pick up Angie, then home. Thank God for a safe, first-time-I-have-ever-drove-through-Toronto trip (and for great traveling companions!) Maureen was my compass and I don't think I could have done that without her: )

I am enjoying a SO quieter season right now. I was thinking this morning about the miracle of the fish and loaves. There was so much left over, wasn't there? There was as much as they could have really ever wanted :) and isn't it the same for us? There is as much as we want of Christ. There is still more, and more, and more.

Even as the people present at that miracle didn't at all realize that they could have actually had more - this has in much the same way happened to me. I have become very complacent in my heart and in my relationship with Christ. I am now realizing that there is so much more. God is awakening my heart to this truth ever so gently. I simply want to have more, and God has impressed it deeply upon my heart that there is definitely more of Him, and this, my friends, is exactly what I am after these days.

I loved Toronto when we were there a few years ago. Glad to see you writing!

Ruth,
Thank you for this update about how you've been and what you have been up to! I'm tickled that you met with Maureen! How fun!

I love what you mentioned Papa has been doing in your heart lately. May you follow Him in all of it. I particularly loved what you said here:

"God is awakening my heart to this truth ever so gently. I simply want to have more, and God has impressed it deeply upon my heart that there is definitely more of Him, and this, my friends, is exactly what I am after these days."

Best wishes and have a very Merry Christmas!

Blessings,
~Amy :)

Hey Bob,

My computer was actually on the blink for a week, I was on withdrawal
by the fourth day no computer ! So glad I am back up and running!

Amy,

thanks - I actually met Maureen in October too, she's a real gem. Our birthdays are two days apart so we have yet another reason to get together - yippee!
