Sometimes I take so many pictures that I skim through them like they are a dime a dozen. I don't fully appreciate them until months go by or years, when I can see that the kids don't look the same anymore. They have grown and I will never get that time or moment back with them. That is the case with this photo. I wasn't necessarily enthralled with it 2 months ago but I was going through my photos and gasped at this one this evening. Yes, this still happens on a regular basis, August, or any of the big kids, taking a moment to talk and play with their little brother, but to have it captured forever, or until my computer dies and we lose all our photos, will be a special piece of history for me to look over in the future. Or for the kids to see and recall back the good ol' days.
So much is happening right now for our family. I have a hard time putting things to words a lot of the time but.....
We are hoping to buy a house soon. It should all work out just fine and in just 3 weeks, unless God has other plans. :) Leaning on Him.
We also are buying a business. Provision is good. Feeding kids is a blessing!
They eat so much!
We will be leaving this town and going to a near by one, but none the less, it is far enough away that we probably won't stay at our church and probably won't see our friends all that much.
So that means, a new church possibly and making new friends again.
The kids have lost their cousins to the Philippines as of yesterday, for at least 2 & 1/2 years. And just when we thought we would have no family living close, Grandpa and Grandma move back into town and save the day! The kids have been with them all day today and I don't see that changing anytime soon! They LOVE to be with them and to walk Shadow, their dog.
Lots of good things happening. Plenty to be thankful for. Always thankful.
Most of the time I'm at peace with God's plan for us. Sometimes I lose sight and I pray for His vision again. His rest. His peace. His guidance. And He gives it!
He always gives it!
Ask and it will be given to you;
seek and you will find;
knock and it will be opened to you.
For everyone who asks receives, and
he who seeks finds, and to
him who knocks it will be opened.
