I find myself being a little busy these days with my three young charges in tow wherever I go. That rhymes and was not even intentional.=) Ok, no, really we have had an amazingly hot but blessed summer, seems like we were traveling every other weekend and just keeping busy. I did go through a little bit of post pardon type thing. We had tons of family up after Elijah was born and I would get sad when they left. I missed my family so much but I would just reclaim God’s goodness and I know we are here for a reason! Though it is hard sometimes I wouldn’t change it for the world. He has proven Himself to us time after time and, oh man, He is good. He is good now, yesterday and tomorrow and forever! We are in such an exciting season and I can see the Lord moving and can feel him working in my heart and life. I love the weeding out that He is doing, it’s painful at times but I pray and desire for there to be less of me and more of Him!
The kids are growing like weeds! Emma and Abigail are the same size and Elijah is much bigger than the girls were at the same age. Daddy is very proud. Elijah is just the sweetest thing ever! He is such a good baby and his temperament is amazing and we are all in love with him. Emma and Abby are amazing with him. They are also great entertainers and Binky hunters. I love my sweet little family. It is most definitely harder going places and dates are few and far between but we wouldn’t change a thing. We are blessed!
Oh and did I mention that we bought a house! Long story short, we prayed about it and felt like the Lord was telling us that we were going to be in El dorado for while longer and that we had His blessing to go ahead and buy a house here in Kansas. We found a house that we liked. It was a “short” sale (like a last chance for owners to sale before it’s defaulted on) and we prayed and felt like the Lord gave us His blessing and we put a bid on it. We missed the deadline and the house went into foreclosure. We were a little bummed but trusted our maker and just waited and watched for the house to come back on the market. Well, it did and for almost 25,000 less than before. Put a new MUCH lower bid in the next day and we got it plus it came with a 2 year home warranty! =) It’s not huge but it was an awesome deal and good investment! Especially because of my handy dandy husband whose got some awesome carpentry skills! But most of all….IT HAS A BACK YARD!! We are super excited about this! My 2 and 3yr old need somewhere to play and my favorite memory and thing to do is to sit on the front porch with my parents and drink a cup of coffee. Yes, we did this even when it was a thousand degrees outside!
=) We should move in by the end of this month. I really need to start packing. =)
Ok that’s about all I have right now. I’ll throw some pictures up soon to dialog our summer events. It’s been fun and excited season. Knowing that no matter where God takes us or what He shows us that we are blessed and His Kingdom will rein forever. This world and all that’s in it will burn someday but our King and His Kingdom will be forever. Learning and trying to remember this when we get caught up in the good things God gives us. I want to desire God above all things, even the good things that come from Him! May we all learn to do this in our lives, to set our hearts and desire on Him most of all!
