No Challenge this Month

A Field of Flowers by Daniel Ridgway Knight.

Dear readers,

Some of you may have come around expecting to find another challenge posted this month.  I had been toying with the idea of not doing one at all for May because we have some things going on that may prove to be kind of stressful for me.  Today, that thought was confirmed to me by the Lord.

First of all, our well has gone out.  I don't know yet what the trouble is but my sister-in-law and I tried to reset the breaker with my husband's direction (over the cell phone), and it wouldn't stay on, so we know something is wrong that is affecting the electricity.  This could prove to be a big problem or a little one, only time and a well expert will tell us that.  (Once my dad got home, he and sister-in-law did run a water hose from the other well up to our property so at least we can shower and flush toilets.  I'm very glad that house wasn't sold yet.)

On top of that, I discovered this afternoon, quite by accident, that I am iron anemic - again.  This is a constant battle for me since my teens, so it isn't a surprise, but it is an added challenge and will take some focus.

So, all things taken together, it looks like this is a good month to step back from the challenge program and just focus on the challenges that I have to deal with. :-)  Lord willing, we'll get back to the challenges next month if possible!

In the mean time, keep looking unto Jesus (Heb. 12).

Mark 6:31  And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.


  1. Praying for your well to get fixed and for your healing! Anemia is a pain, I understand!

    1. The well is fixed! Praise the Lord for that. :-)
      The anemia will take longer, as I'm sure you know. Thanks for praying.

  2. Praying that you will continue to lean on the Lord in all your challenges. May you be blessed this coming month!

    1. Thank you, Jennifer!
      The well is fixed now, but the health and other challenges will take more time. I'm praising the Lord for the blessings that have come thus far!
