One sold car. One new house. One 8 year old.

Thanks for your prayers.  

The Lord provided two months rent on our new house.  Thank you Crossroads Christian Fellowship.  The ladies were scrubbing it down today {it was quite dusty after sitting vacant since June} and we hope to move in next Tuesday.  The children are so excited to play baseball in the HUGE yard.  And Eryn keeps talking about the hot water available in the showers--although she has grown joyfully accustomed to bathing in freezing cold water.

The story behind selling our old Cruiser, so we can pay off the new Cruiser, is a tad complicated.  But, long story short, Zane sold it today!  We had until the 28th and the date seemed to be looming over us.  Although we did not get as much as we were asking, we now "owe no man anything."  What a good feeling.

Look who turned 8 today!  What an amazing son the Lord has gifted us with.  Elijah is growing into a godly young man.  He is such an amazing servant.


Happy Birthday--his first one to be celebrated with us!!!

Wow! Praise God! Thanks for sharing these blessings - I love hearing the good things God is doing all over the world! I only just began a prayer journal. I can't believe I've never kept one. My 10 year old son inspired me to keep one when he asked, "Mom, God is answering our prayers EVERY day. How do you keep track of them all to remember to thank Him?" For a while I kept a blog but found many people didn't like hearing the GOOD so I made it private. Do you keep a prayer journal? So fun to hear what God is doing in your part of the world! Blessings, Jennifer
