I went to the beach yesterday and it took me 15 minutes to find a parking spot on what is usually a desolate space.  Something so bare is now starting to be packed with visitors and others flooding in.  I’ve been told season has started to begin.  I’ve heard stories of how things are here during busy season and have tried to imagine it, but starting to experience it brings reality of what is to come.   I’m realizing my normals will have to change a bit to adjust with the current of people arriving.  My quick run over to the beach and back won’t be as simple.  I’ll still get to do all the same things, I’ll just need to take on some different Rhythms to be able to accomplish them.  And thus, as I reflected on the town of Pawleys and the flow of the season here… I realize how God is doing just the same thing in the life of our family.

We have been in an amazing season of breakthrough.  In life, family, ministry, mission.  Not a day goes by that I don’t see his abundant blessing as it keeps lapping into our lives like the waves gently rolling onto the shore.  The breakthrough times come through the normal process of life… Beginning with Abiding, then Pruning, then Growing, then Fruitfulness…  And the fruit, it’s there now and is needing to be picked and harvested and the baskets are flowing over and I just want to be sure I dont’ drop any of it.  And so just like you do in breakthrough at least for me.. I go back to the abiding because it’s in that moment that I’m able to “be” so that I can be useful in the breakthrough.

If you have had a glimpse at all into the things that make up our days and months you are aware that we have lots going on all the time.  We really love it and it’s great to be busy and have schedules intentionally full with things you know you are to press into and accomplish. It’s part of our joy of being a family on mission. We love the “doing” part of our life and now living in Pawleys we also really enjoy the “being” part of it as well.
