But despite the routine, I thought I would at least give an update of what our "routine" has looked like for the past month or so.
Ben and I have been consistently able to volunteer at an elementary school for a few hours each day. We have been doing a variety of different things with the students, such as reading with them, helping them write, and helping them with FCAT prep (aka Florida's TAKS test). We have really enjoyed helping out with the children and are learning a lot about how to help our future children get the most out of their education.
Outside of volunteering, we are keeping busy with our church and are blessed to be a part of some new and exciting doors the Lord seems to be opening for our church body in the way of fellowship, discipleship, service & ministry.
Ben is also prepping for more meetings. He will probably have some meetings this week to go over paperwork involving his potential career. We should know more about this within the month.
I, on the other hand, have been trying to catch up on my sewing, and have been tutoring for the past several months.
It has been an interesting season for us here in Pensacola, knowing that we will probably be leaving within the next several months, but at the same time, having our minds, hearts & bodies fully engaged in our Pensacola lives until we do move. I think the Lord has really given us grace in this area--to be fully here, rather than to spend our time dreaming about the "what-if's" of the future. We are excited about the opportunities within the community, military & in our church that He has given us and I think these things are helping us to stay content in where we are right now.
