slowly but surely

Tons going on here. Still unpacking, organizing, and making daily runs to Walmart. And trying to fit all that in during Caed's naps. But we are getting there!

Here is a thought I just read as I paused for a moment at the computer. A great reminder today!

Marriage is a vocation. It is a task to which you are called. If it is a task, it means you work at it. It is not something which happens. You hear the call, you answer, you accept the task, you enter into it willingly and eagerly, you commit yourself to its disciplines and responsibilities and limitations and privileges and joys. You concentrate on it, giving yourself to it day after day in a lifelong Yes.” --Elisabeth Elliot, Let Me Be a Woman, p. 102
