He is such a Restorer!

One of the things I love most about Shabbat (Sabbath) time is that we look forward to resting together as a family. Mostly we stay at home or if we go out somewhere, it's usually for a bushwalk or in the outdoors remembering our fantastic Creator whilst being in His awesome creation. When we travel in the car on Shabbat, we save some podcasts or music to the iphone and listen to that. Today we listened to Nehemia Gordon + Jono from last week's TRUTH2U programme. Really enjoyed that - thanks Jono! I love the way Jono interviews people; he just seems to ask the right kind of questions! Anyway, we listened to that, talked and prayed together about Torah as a family and enjoyed looking at our Father's wonderful creation as we drove along.

Today, we got to meet up with some old friends of ours. I won't go into many details here but we 'lost' our friendship a while back due in part to immaturity on my behalf, misunderstanding and a failure to communicate well. All I can say is that I am amazed at the true gift Yehovah (God) gives to us as a gift of His grace, to experience what it is like to walk in forgiveness towards each other. 
He really is a healer of the broken and restorer of the lost!
Praise Him!

Anyway, for the last year or so, we have been slowly back in contact and today we got to meet up face to face! These guys also shamar (hebrew word for 'keep' which means literally to guard and protect over) the Sabbath. And they were going to be 2.5hours away from us so we travelled there to see them. It was so great for us all! We were able to share, pray and catch up and the kids really loved playing together.: 9 kids between the 2 families!

Here are some snaps from our day of rest and restoration together... 

May I be so bold as to encourage you to pray and seek God if there is a relationship in your life that you know needs to be restored? It's not alway easy and for me it was very humbling to go and seek forgiveness but it was so worth it.
It always is, isn't it?
He is able to heal.
He is able to help you mend.

With much love and thankfulness in my heart,
