surrounded by unfinished business

The Van:
Enjoying a VERY cold lake with Grandma French since we took our van up north to get the brakes fixed. It was going to cost us $300 in the cities, and we were able to get it done for $109 in Sandstone. When you add the cost of gas for that trip, it was probably more like $150. We still need to get new tires (maybe new wipers) and an oil change. Unfinished business. Anyway, about Grindstone Lake. This lake was so cold, and the beach was made of gravel. Brin was so excited to play in the water that she didn’t want to get out and literally turned blue.

The Dane-man!
He has been working on getting rid of his jaundice since the day after he was born and finally, one week ago (so he was 4 weeks old), his bilirubin level was under 10 and he could be taken off his bili-lights! He is unfinished business just like our girls are unfinished business. Everyone is still growing and still in our prayers! They will forever be unfinished blessings!

The house!

As I am writing this, I see my husband walk across the yard with a door above his head! Since we are low on funds and on time (having 3 children is a LOT different. You weren’t kidding!), one of the most productive things I was able to do was make a huge list of everything we want to get done to our house. This includes things like fixing the curtain rod in Maya’s room since it’s hanging on by one nail. Another example is buying new curtains for the dining room or getting new linoleum for the bathroom. You know the little stuff that would be nice to have done, but nothing is pressing! Always unfinished business!

  3. I’m so glad that God is big enough to handle all of my unfinished business. Your blog made me smile today, remembering that we all have unfinished business and we can look forward to heaven someday when He will put on those finishing touches. Hmmm…so nice to think about! Thanks!

    Randomly found you while doing a little google searching for old friends – actually looked for ruhama (greetings!) and followed a link to you guys.It has been about 10 years since we were last in touch (time passes so fast). I was pleased to see how well you guys are doing. Its easy to imagine that you guys are great parents and that your little ones are blessed to have you.Send a note if you’d like to catch up more.Candy (Hooker)

    Great truth, Gianna! Our lives are all filled with unfinished business. But God is so big, and it’s a great reminder that this world is NOT our home.
