Signing Off For Awhile
I'm not sure when I will get a chance to "play" and blog on my computer. Today we buy our house and begin the 4 day redecoration process (think of a scaled down Extreme Makeover - Home Edition and I get to play the part of Ty!).
And, horror of horrors we will be without Internet service at all for about 4 days next week. Then, 2 days after it is hooked up we are going on vacation to a place with no Internet service (family camp, woo-hoo!).
But, all kidding aside I feel the grace of God regarding this move. I have grown very nostalgic these last few days and quite honestly, I feel a bit of a loss. This really has been my dream home and I struggle some days comprehending the fact that our income has been so drastically reduced in the last 2 years. I really did not want to move, but I sensed the Lord asking for us to trust Him. And, I woke up this morning with this song on my heart (from Veggie Tales, Madam Blueberry).....
Because a thankful heart is a happy heart.
I'm glad for what I have, that's an easy way to start.
In the end it really doesn't matter what house I live in or what material possessions I have. So, I really am thankful and I also feel assured that God will do wonderful, mighty things in our new neighborhood that we will get to be a part of.
I'm also believing He will put a hedge of holy protection around our house from snakes and rabid raccoons.
