My husband and I are in the home stretch of preparing our new place. Most of the work inside the house part of the building is done, the horse stalls are finished, and the fence that will keep the equine members of the family off the front porch will be completed by week’s end. Just as a racehorse must push itself to the very limit of what is physically possible in the final furlongs to reach victory, we are also mustering all resources to complete the work at the new, begin to move horse, house, and property stuff, and then make all at the old ready for another family. Fatigue, aching muscles, and stretched resources of all kinds are draining our reserves. Each day we must visit the well of God’s grace that we may begin anew each morning.
