It's been almost 2 months since I was on here~wow~how time flies! I'm going to make an attempt at writing at least every other day. We have been preparing our home to sell, which will finally be ready, this week! We have been trying to enjoy the summer, although it's been sooo HOT & humid. We also added 2 new additions to our family....a yr. old Beagle/Shepherd mix for our 15yr. old, and a 3mo. old Catahoula leopard dog puppy for our 17yr. old. They are keeping them busy!!
We are continuing to pray for the Lord's direction and leading in finding a new home. We want to be where He wants us. Our goals are to become as self-sufficient as possible. We have been studying for months....gardening, raising animals, storing food, etc....We are ready, we just need to sell our home & find a new one!! Although I know all works out in the Lord's perfect timing, it's hard not to get anxious!
We also went through a faith building time at the end of June, as my father got a kidney transplant. It was simply amazing to see the Lord work. From providing a perfect donor, through the surgery, recovery, and all of it, the Lord's hand has been at work and it was so evident to see. My father is doing wonderful now. He is walking on the treadmill, mowing his lawn again(slowly, on a riding mower) and getting back to life. Although his "normal" is now very different, we are so grateful that he has been given a new life.
Life just tends to move so quickly, we need to take time to stop, and remember how the Lord is working in our lives.
My husband led us last evening in family worship as we talked about living to glorify God. May we keep this at the forefront of our minds each and every day.
Striving to please Him in all that we do!!!!
