About Me

I am a busy mommy of 6, seeking to be a loving, godly helpmeet to my husband and a biblical discipler to my children. God has blessed us with a child with Autism. May the lessons that the Lord is teaching me and our family be a blessing to you and yours!

Today I am thankful that I can rest secure in the face that God is ALWAYS good! We received some disappointing news, we no longer have renters for our Pembine House. Once again we lean on God for understanding and grace. He knows the strain that two house payments will be on our family and delights in meeting the need for a renter/buyer in His time. We know that He wants to strengthen our faith and teach us more about trusting.

In the midst of this disappointment we:
~are very thankful that we KNOW that He has a plan and will work it out in His timing.
~are thankful for the extra margin this will ad to our lives. Phil will not need to take a week off work the week after we move to come up here and refinish the floors along with all the other projects.
~are glad that we can now re-evaluate what are the essential things that need to be done before renting/selling and can focus on those. This will probably save us a significant amount of money!
~are very glad that we will have a couple months to do the work on the Pembine house.
~are so thankful that we will be able to pray with our children about the need for a renter/buyer for the house. This will allow them to see God answer the prayer and help to increase their faith.
~won't have to have the house completely emptied out this month, so if we need to we can leave things here that will not fit in the moving truck.
~will be able to spend time focusing on settling into the new house and settling into a new family routine without the pressure of having to get this house done NOW!
~I should say, I am very thankful for a husband who is calm, levelheaded, wise, and a godly leader in our home. This would have rattled most men, but Phil has remained very calm and god-minded through this time. Thanks honey!!

Please pray with us that God will provide a renter for the house and for the apartment, or a buyer for the entire house.
