We have been looking for a new home. We had been renting a house for 2 yrs and needed to move. Not a big deal right, wrong. We have a large family and a very bad credit history. We have been speaking for the last 3 yrs that the Lord has a home for us here in our town that He is holding just for us. We were excited about moving into that home. Someplace where we could raise our children and enjoy our grand children. My family and I moved around alot when I was a child and I don't want that for my children. So anyway we have looked at a few homes but nothing really seemed quite right. Then we can across house "A" we liked house A, but it was listed for sale and the owners wanted to wait the summer and see if it sold. So we waited praying that this was the house, asking was this the house, why were we not finding anything else out there for rent/lease that would hold our family. Seeking Him, hearing nothing, prayerfully waiting for something, anything to happen with this house. Then just as we were getting the money together to put in another "bid" on house A it sold. Oh it was hard! But we knew that God held us in His hand and there was something else out there for us. Then comes along house "B". Everything that we had put down on a paper when we found out we needed to move. EVERYTHING. Hubby went to look at it, then we went back with our family. I loved the house, but didn't get our hopes up. Things were looking good, until the home owner ran our credit. The HO was confused, should she rent to us, our history doesn't look good. I mean who would rent to us in their right minds?!? But God has dealt with us about our financial past, we are not those people anymore. He has redeemed us, we are new in His mercies. So only God knows how this turns out, we are prayerfully waiting...

Happy New Year!!!!

Ok, well maybe it's a little late, but better now then never! :D It has already been a fun start to the year and we are only 23 days into it. Our family is healthy, but the Lord has been speaking to me about complacency, which is always a great. So the definition is...


self-satisfaction especially when accompanied by unawareness of actual dangers or deficiencies 2: an instance of usually unaware or uninformed self-satisfaction (borrowed from

So here is the deal with why this has been a thing for me...last Nov. I started working for our church in the nursery. I love my job, it allows me to have my kids with me and I get to serve the families from our church. But sometime last year I lost my zeal, my passion, I think I moved into a place where I was serving and that was good enough, no need to do anything else. I love to speak encouragement in to women's lives, it's part of my Spiritual giftings. I know that when you don't use your giftings they start to dry up and soon you don't realize that you are even missing anything. It's crazy how quickly the enemy can come and make us complacent with our situation. Telling us that we don't need anyone to speak into our lives or visa versa. But it's just not true. We need that, especially if it is a gift. After talking with a women from my church and sharing my heart with her, God re-lit that passion of sharing God's word with people. I need that, to share what God is speaking to my heart, so here we are starting another year, and I am praying that He will continue to speak to me, about my life, so that I can share my heart with you. Getting out of that place that is comfortable and cozy is hard, and putting yourself out there, with what may sometimes be crazy thoughts and ideas is hard, but I am determined to open my mouth this year.
So I hope that you also have a great year of moving our of complacency and into His arms.
