One of my favorite quotes from The City of Ember (which I don't recall if it is in the book) when they're doing repairs in the pipe works...
Is it holdin'?
So far? So far is so good!
We're coming up on six whole months at the castle--wow!
So far so good!
Averaging 2 hours in a vehicle each day (many times more, rarely less) and that's over 338 hours travel time.
Winter and spring and half a summer under our belt.
Well pump repair.
Garden planted and starting to harvest.
Two flocks of chickens.
Said goodbye to Lilly.
Lost a chicken.
Shot a possum, [at a] coyote, [at a] fox, and an armadillo.
Still learning new routines.
How to live smaller yet work harder.
Still wondering how sleep fits into the equation.
Proverbs 3:5-12, MSG Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all. Run to God! Run from evil! Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life! Honor God with everything you own; give him the first and the best. Your barns will burst, your wine vats will brim over. But don’t, dear friend, resent God’s discipline; don’t sulk under his loving correction. It’s the child he loves that God corrects; a father’s delight is behind all this.
