It's Getting Real!

Yes! That is a blank wall.  One of many actually.  We have been taking things down, having garage sales, giving things away, and getting things ready for the first move.  Our house is under contract, and we should be closing in the next couple of weeks.  

We thought we might be homeless for a little bit--not really!  But God has found us a really neat rental for us to have for a short term.  Only God!

We have been so busy, that most of the time I'm not even sure what day it is.  We have been blessed to speak at a few churches and can't wait to see how God is going to bring in the support over the next few months. He has already been so good to us!

I have to say that we are all on emotional roller coasters.  This is a huge life-changing event.  Every day we are busy trying to accomplish the many tasks it takes to make this kind of a move. From deciding where to store family pictures that you can't take on the first trip, to trying to decide what other home school curriculum we might need for the first year of the girl's schooling, it is a lot to deal with.

Thankfully my God goes before us everyday, making our decisions easier because we are trusting in Him.  He knows the answers to all of the questions that have been floating through our brains. 

Continuously he tells us to have faith like the mustard seed, to abide in Him, and to cast our cares on Him.  Sometimes that is so hard to do--and we struggle, other times it's the easiest thing to do and we have great peace.  Through it all he remains faithful and true.  He never changes!

Please continue to pray for us and our family.  Just a real quick update on Jordan:  He had an endoscopy on Monday.  Nothing showed up, no ulcers or anything.  He will have an ultrasound in a couple of weeks.  Just trying to make sure all aspects are covered.  He has continued to be pain free since the last episode so we are grateful!  Thanks for your prayers!
