Just before we left for the cottage this weekend I scrambled to find the latest book I am reading. 'Living With Confidence in a Chaotic World' by Dr. David Jeremiah. It follows the book, 'What in the World is Going On?' As an author he astounds me at his research and the relevance to our world today. I recommend these two books. I am almost done the second book and  I am learning so much and the part that struck me this weekend had to do with connectivity.
This theme has run rampant through my last few months. Connections to God, friends and family and all the unique situations we as a family have experienced. The theme is, connected.

I want to share with you something Dr. Jeremiah says in his latest book (the one I am reading!), "The goal of my life is to reach that place where diligence to God's will is my total passion."

That spoke to my heart. As I continued to read, the next chapter speaks on staying connected. Lately, that is exactly what I have felt, connected to those I love. The bottomp line is simply this, if my passion is not God's will how can I truly be connected to those God has placed in my life?
The photos to follow are the beautiful connections recently experienced.

I love connectivity, without it where would the church be and where would I be?

I am connected to friends...

I love you all and thank God for you. B and A, we bless you on your new journey. I could have cried so many tears Friday night, instead we had to just laugh and know that we will see you again, soon. I love your blogs (you are both amazing bloggers!!) you spoke my heart in what you both said. Love you!

I am connected to my little one

I am connected to my girls

I am connected to my boys and to the Mac nephews!

There are so many connections, I just had to highlight the most recent. We were made to be in relationship with others, that makes life so beautiful. You know God's hand is in that!!
