Moving on

This last weekend we sent our fully edited manuscript of Coffee Shop Conversations off to our editor to finish up. While we know there will still be a final read through, we felt a huge amount of satisfaction knowing we had finished well. The editing was grueling last week, but each day we had moments of rest, a walk, a walk to get mail, a good movie to relax to at least for a few hours each day.

We both felt your prayers. I (Jonalyn) felt really thankful that I didn't feel as stressed and frustrated as normal. Dale put in an additional read through the entire book before sending it. We think the work will pay off as we've given the manuscript the best that we have in ourselves, at this time. Thank you for helping us finish.

Now it's out of our hands for awhile and we're cheerfully turning toward moving to our cabin this month. We ask your prayer for
  • wisdom about attaining agricultural status on our land. We need favor in the eyes of the assessor board to make this happen.
  • deep contenment about our house remaining un-sold
  • wisdom about what to do with our house:drop price? continue waiting? get renters? We need God's guidance about what would be the best move. Pray that he would guide us.
Our times with our house church in town have been particularly rich lately and we feel nourished and thankful to live here in Steamboat. We very excited to be moving into our little cabin.

Happy Summer!

I'm so excited for you both. I love seeing how God is using you. Would you be willing to read a chapter or two of what's been written so far on my end and provide some guidance?
