Hello, everybody! This past month has been wild. Our family is going through an unexpected move. Since Hasten Home is operated out of our home, that means a bit of a transition there, too. We did not move far—we still have the same ZIP Code—but it was far enough to present some issues, especially with the internet. We thought we had it all worked out: our old service would disconnect Monday (a few days after we planned to be moving into the new home), and the new service would be set up with the new provider on the Friday before that, after we had spent our first night in our new home. That way, in the transition, I would have a connection at whichever place proved to be the more convenient. Everything would go smoothly and without interruption, as far as our online friends were concerned.
Unfortunately, as you may have guessed by the gap in my Post-a-Day postings, the internet transition has not gone as smoothly as anticipated. The old service was disconnected Thursday, shortly after I had taken care of that day’s morning online business. I thought, “No problem—the other service will connect in the morning; I’ll just use it then, and take an internet break for the rest of today.” Then, Friday, the installation guy came out to install our service at the new place. His news, though, was not what we wanted to hear: “There is not actually service at this address. It stops over 1000 feet away, at the neighbor’s place, and we can only go 300 feet.” Oh, no! Hmmm…
As I sit here and write today, I have finally opted to bear with dial-up temporarily. We are working on the possibility of satellite, which looks promising, but will take us a little time to hook up. What that means for my readers is that the postings on the Hasten Home blog will probably be a bit sporadic at best for a couple more weeks or so—but we will be back!
“My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:13. He has called me to prepare Vacation Bible School materials for the children of our day—I believe that with all my heart. I also believe He wants them to be available on the internet, so that you can easily have access to them, too! Please bear with me in this transition time–and, as always, I appreciate your prayers.
P.S. I apologize for the break in the subject of “trust” (I know, of all subjects…)—but, Lord willing, it will be continued in due time. Thank you for your patience!
