Hey, and welcome to this week's video!!
I'm talking about our 14 day quarantine from having just traveled to Canada from Texas.
It has me just a bit upset having to quarantine like this when we are all perfectly well and healthy.
and we are missing out on stuff.
Like the kids Bible camp, going camping with my mom and sister, or just going down to the river. it's a bummer.
Though even in this we have much to be thankful for.
thankful for our good health, for my family, for a safe and peaceful place to live ( there is alot oh turmoil in the world right now) and that I have God as my Hope and My Help!!
I also mention and fix something I said in my last video.
I let mothers know that being a mother is one of the greatest things you do.
It's great when families can be an outreach out side the home, but what we do in the home is so very vital, and is not less than.
And it's our first place of outreach.

Back in our Alberta home!!
in this video I give more details of our trip up from Texas, about how the spit tests we did didn't go as expected, and our 14 day quarantine.
Traveling is not what it use to be pre-covid for sure, I guess it's easier for those that have the vaccine, but getting much tougher on the rest of us.
if you haven't already go watch part of Our ROAD trip from Texas to Alberta.
For those of you following my youtube channel and wanted to see pictures and videos from our recent trip here you are!!
Part one vlog of our road trip from Texas to Alberta, Canada. This video covers days one and two of our 4 day road trip.
It contains video and pictures of sights and updates along the way.
I was going to post this video along the way, but didn't have high-speed internet to post it until we got home here to Alberta.
Now I will do another video to update how the rest of our trip went, how the the free tests didn't end up working out for us, and how the border crossing went.
There will be a few pics to go with it too.
Closed doors are so hard when it's things you've been really hoping and waiting for and you thought it was the right thing.
But we have to realize who is in control especially when we've been diligently praying for Him to guide and direct our lives, and when we consider it we certainly don't want that thing that doesn't have God's favor and blessing over it.
Closed doors means He's got something better in mind.
And when one door closes another one usually opens.
God is our guide and our protector.
And as we pray diligently for Him to guide, guard, and direct our lives, and then closed doors happen, that's Him doing just that.
Keeping us from situations that are not the best for us.
But closed doors don't always feel good at the time. I'm going through something right now.
But I just have to keep trusting, keep resting in Him, and praising Him for His guiding hand over my life. And be alert for the doors he does open.
I'll share a canva design I just made the other night from saying I just seen about closed doors.
Probably why I find it so hard is my lack of patience. I want to see things happen soon, and when it doesn't I think I've did something wrong.
Either not working hard enough in that direction, or not praying hard enough, not fasting.
Or a number of things.
It's hard for me to just realize and except that either it's just not God's timing yet, or maybe just not the door he wants me to walk through and he closed the door that I thought was open for me.
So that's hard. Hebrews 6:12 That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
Hebrews 6:12 KJV Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV Mae Renfroe
