A Work in Progress

    We have titled our new blog Smithler: A Work in Progress. Smithler is the plural of Smith in Turkish and the work in progress... well, that could take a little more explanation.

    Every day we are striving to be a work in progress for Him. We hope that we are allowing the Lord to mold us and shape us into people who worship Him alone. We will never achieve the status of "finished product" on this side of Heaven, but we pray that He would continue to humble us and draw us closer to Him as we long to be the clay in the Potter's hands.

    Living in a new culture is a constant learning experience. There is rarely a day that goes by that we do not learn of a new word, a new aspect about the culture, or even a new thing about ourselves. So, we consider ourselves a work in progress in this land... attempting to learn and grow and most importantly, love the people of our new culture.

    Finally, our family is a work in progress in the most literal sense of the words. Baby Smith is on the way, and there will undoubtedly be some progress made in that area over the next few months and years! Prayerfully, we will always be seeking His face as we discover the joys and trials of parenting.

    Continuing the work...

    "Yet, O Lord, you are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand." ~Isaiah 64:8
