Just a little break...
I thought I would take a little break from the madness of moving and offer an update. We officially move tomorrow, but the cleaning and the packing started Monday. :)
It cracks me up how God plans things out for you WAY better than you could ever plan for yourself. I started this week out feeling totally abandoned by our dear friends who moved (they needed to, but it started quite a whirlwind) and depressed from the loss of so many things. I felt like there was so little communication, and things were happening so fast, I couldn't possibly keep up. Where were we going to live, what we were going to do?
Less than 5 days later, my husband is ridiculously ecstatic with our new neighborhood, my kids are running around enjoying themselves- walking to Don's country store, playing at the park, and I love my new house and the fact that so many things have gone right. When Stef said she was moving so fast, I was sad but figured it was the best thing for them, when Steve lost his job, I panicked because I didn't know how we could afford to stay at this place alone. And now, I am so happy that my family is happy, and totally relaxed because God is working for us in this crazy life- and I can't doubt it.
Who else could find us a beautiful home so fast in exactly the right place, provide us with money in the bank, food on the table, and the most inexpensive move we have ever experienced (and we have experienced A LOT!). Jasmine says a million times a day, "I love my room, I love my house, I love my new neighborhood", and all I can say is "God is so good!"
I will update more later, but the Son couldn't be much brighter in our world now. No matter how dark and gray the skies are, nothing can keep Him away. Thank God no one listened to my plans... God's are so much better!
