Good Women

Do you have some of these in your life? I do and feel so blessed. You know the ones you can tell all your ugly to and they love you anyway!! When life is draining me, I have friends that will renew my spirit. Do you know how awesome it is to have women that you can ask to pray for you and you know without a doubt that they will? God wanted us to have friendships. I pray you have this in your life and I also hope you are that kind of friend.

Who finds a faithful friend, finds a treasure!

We Have a Renter!!

I wish I could tell you how awesome a day we had Sunday. The weather outside was gloomy but man those prayers where answered in a big way. The phone started ringing in the afternoon and hubby showed the house. Folks usually stop by when they see someone is there and that's exactly what happened. I have to tell you I have prayed ever since we were planning on moving that our neighbor would buy our house for one of his kids...well, Sunday he came over and rented it for one of them!!! He is considering buying it!!!! I feel in my heart this is who is suppose to have our old home. It's going to be God's timing not mine. I am so excited.
Thank you for your prayers and encouragement!!!

Thank You

Can I just say thank you for all the prayers...we started receving a lot of calls and my hubby showed the house. Whats really cool is we had always hoped that our neighbor would buy the house for his son but it has never happened. Well, today while hubby was showing the house to an another couple our neighbor came over and asked to go through the house. Great news, his son is renting the house and we are hopeful they will buy it. I can't even tell you the weight that has been lifted from me. I kept a good attitude this week and really focused on God and not worrying about it. He took care of it better than I ever could have.

Life is hard but God is Good

Thank you all so much

I may bake this week and share a recipe or two.

Thank you so much for all your prayers. I have been working so much. This is a good thing. God keeps providing me with opportunities. I am tired but very thankful. We still don't have a renter. Would you be so kind to remember that in your prayers. We have always had calls and this time we haven't had one!! We just need that one special call that God knows would be a great renter or the person that wants to buy our home. I know he is working behind the scenes.

Something came to me regarding my car accident. I hit a cement pole and have over 4,300 worth of damage. I hate that part of the story but what I have realized is that I have not been focused and have been so distracted with stress, life, worry , health and family issues. God sent that pole to me to get be focused. I will take a pole over people any day!! I am not reckless nor do I text and drive. I have had no accidents but I truly believe this was for my own good. I hopefully get my AWESOME van back on Tuesday and let me tell you I appreciate that Honda luxury van more than I ever thought I would.
Please know I am thankful and I know everything is coming together for good.

Boy did I have a great day yesterday. I felt your prayers and I knew God was working behind the scenes but I got an amazing surprise yesterday...a $2 raise for the grant job I do. That just does not happen. I mean really I have been doing this gig for 5-6 years and NEVER had a raise!!! It was so cool to me how it was just all taken care of. He is so amazing.
Bonus: Hubby went to the other house and a neighbor came out and said her sister may be interested in our old house.

So, thank you all for the prayers and know that we are working our way through this valley!!

If you can't say anything nice...

Well, it's like the saying goes if you can't say anything nice, say nothing at all. I've kinda felt like this lately. I like to be encouraging and hope to inspire others to love Jesus. My spirit has been kicked around a bit lately and I have felt like a bully stole my lunch money.
BUT I am not one to be bullied. So here I sit wanting to tell you my life is in the valley right now but I know God is for me and he only wants the very best for me.
So he shared this word with me today. Oh, I've read it before but man did I need to hear it again.
No man has ever seen, heard or even imagined the wonderful things God has in store for those who love the Lord. 1Corinthians 2:9

I truly do love the Lord and I am so thankful .
(even as we evict another renter and I pay my $500 deductible for wrecking the car!!)
