From His Word

Joshua 24:15
"If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."

Prayer and Praise

  • God's Perfect Provision
  • Allow us to teach our children His ways
  • His pefect plan for children (brothers & sisters?)

It's looking good in there! Marand and Javier have the 'wood wrap' walls done, just shy of some sanding and staining...finally! Javier had me laughing the other day as he, in his thick Spanish accent, with much hand gesturing, encouraged me that this was going to be "like a fine piece of hand-crafted furniture on my walls!" So, even with the extra time it took, I'm praising God for my pieces of furniture on my walls!

Yesterday Marand was trying to decide on a stain color for the wood wrap, and did the small section behind him in a color he decided was too last night we were there and he sanded for about 2 hours straight to get that color off and the new one on....I'm supposed to remind him in the future to NEVER stain something the wrong color again ;)

This is the 'final choice' color - similar to the kitchen cabinets.

We have the boys so 'scared' of falling to their deaths off this overlook, that it took some strong encouraging from Dad to get Isaac to even go near it! He had fun convincing him as to how sturdy it was. I think we should see the rail polls he's standing on cut and fitted into it today!

I stand to testify that building a home is not an easy time of life.

Transition is hard. Disciplining your boys in random place is difficult.

Keeping on top of the bills is challenging.

Waiting on others, realizing that the timing is totally out of my hands, has been patience building. 

But I remind myself moment by moment of each amazing blessing, Praising God along the way for HIS house, thanking Him that He's allowing us to steward it for Him. Praising Him for a place to stay in the meantime, and doing my best, through the help of the Holy Spirit to rest in HIM. Walk on, child, walk on! Thanks for praying for us - I can't wait till you can come visit!!


Beautiful On the Eyes

It's pretty hard to stay gloomy around these parts - God paints pretty.


Quite a Gathering!

I sure enjoyed this fun group of Jesus ladies last night - Game nights are super, and it's times like this that make me know that Heaven is gonna just blow our minds! Thanking God for that blessed assurance and sure HOPE!

We are moving towards being ready to move in.....slowly, but beautifully!

Woodwork should be done this week - then staining and painting!

my husband loves his 'beefy' banister posts!

Super nice, super cheap cabinets from the Re-store are fitting nicely in the 'media room' for our T.V. wall. Super excited about that!
