The Blessings Continue...

This morning I talked with my amazing and beautiful friend, Pam.  She has been trying to find us a place in or around Hendricks to live when we move next month (can  you believe it - next month!?).  Well, the rentals are few and far between.  She, along with others, has been calling and asking any one and everyone if their empty houses are for rent or sale.  The favorite answer has seemed to be no!  Well, over the weekend and the beginning of this week as things were being pout into motion here, things started happening there.  A guy that had some land that Pam's husband had been interested in buying (the man at the time was not interested in selling) called Chad and told him that he was trying to buy a house in a different town and wanted to know if Chad wanted to buy this land.  The fact that this guy was buying a house elsewhere meant he would be moving out of his house next to the land.  Chad asked if he would be willing to rent the house.  The guy said yes.  Pam and Chad went and looked at the house yesterday and while it may not be the biggest house ever, it is available!  It is cheap, it has more than one bathroom :), it has beautiful views of the lake, a deck off the master bedroom, and a huge yard for the kids to run free in.  The guy is supposed to close on his new house sometime this week and start moving out so it should be ready by the time we get there in 5 weeks.  As I told Pam about how things worked out here and how it had to be because of help form God she said it was the same there.  All of a sudden everything fell into place.  Once again I am overwhelmed at His presence in all that we do.  He is so aware of us.  If we will but move forward in faith doing our best to do what is right, He will be there.  Things don't always go perfect, I'm sure we'll still have bumps to get over, but He is aware and He is in control.  He will bless us and carry us along.  My heart is full of joy and peace.  I wish Michael were here so I could share all these moments with him in person and not over the phone.  We are definitely grateful for the opportunity to come here.  It has brought many blessings to us that will continue to help us as we leave again.  We don't always know the why's and how come's to all of what life offers but I do know that He knows and if we follow Him we will be okay.  There is a song that we sing in church called "Be Thou Humble." The words of the hymn say, "Be thou humble in thy weakness and the Lord thy God shall lead thee, shall lead thee by the hand and give thee answer to thy prayers. Be thou humble in thy pleading, and the Lord thy God shall bless thee, shall bless thee with a sweet and calm assurance that he cares."  I love this hymn.  The words are so true.  He will lead us and bless us.  For this I am eternally grateful. I am so thankful to everyone who has helped us over the last month or so.  It has been a roller coaster at times and there have been a few who have stuck with us for the whole ride and have done all they can to help and support us.  Thank you!  I love you all!  You are a part of these blessings that have come to my family.
