I just realized that I haven't updated my blog for awhile. So much has been happening in our lives. God has been so good to us but he has also challenged us in ways we never expected.
For the first time in our married life we are both unemployed. Since we are we decided that there is no reason for us to stay here. We are leaving the 1st of October for Illinois. No we haven't sold our house yet. We just figured that we will have to pay the same bills there as here. I don't want to try to find a job here and get trained and then have to move. We have already scheduled 3 nights at Mesa Verde National Park. We are meeting Jerry's parents there on our way to Illinois. We will arrive at Josh and Jessica's in time for me to attend the Ladies Spectacular. I am so excited. Jerry is still working on the Mustang for Chuck and when he doesn't have parts he is doing repairs around the house and on the motor home. Today we started to put the flooring in the motor home. We ripped out the carpet in the kitchen area and bathroom. Boy did it smell like dog. Then we have to prep the area and put the new flooring in. It will be so much nicer and easier to keep clean. We will still have the carpet in the couch area.
I can't wait to move. I have to admit that part of me is a little scared because it is all so unsettled. I would feel better if our house was sold but, we are sure that this is God's will for our lives We have prayed and fasted about this. I think God still has time to sell our house for us and if he doesn't there is a reason he doesn't and we will just have to deal with it.

I can't wait to have family meals with our kids and do all the stuff we haven't been able to do with them. I can't wait to see our new grand baby born and get to hold it. I can't wait to see Kyndra and play with her. God is so good that he has arranged all of this for us.


  1. I'll be praying for your move and for your house to sell. Your girls will be so thrilled to have you near them. Your family picture is beautiful.

  2. Came to visit your blog through Ladies of Grace. I will attend Ladies Spectacular in Ind
    too. How fun to get to be close to your family.
    In Him, Mrs. M.
