Week 8: We're Homeless

Good afternoon!

I just ate the most delicious sandwich from my favorite sub shop, The Great Outdoors! It's their #20 which is Muenster and avocado on wheat bread. YUM! I thought I'd just rub that in. Mmmmmm.

Anyway, this week we closed on our house and moved 90% of our junk into storage. The rest is crammed into my parents house along with all of THEIR new furniture that they are moving to their new house next weekend. Needless to say, it's a bit tight right now. However, they have totally made us feel at home. We couldn't be more blessed to be able to stay with them while we are waiting to move into our new home. Thanks to all of our friends and family for helping us move! You guys rock!!

This week, we have seen God's hand in SO many ways. A couple hours after we signed away our home, our AC broke. Really??? REALLY?!?! Could that have happened at a worse or more awkward time? We had so many questions. What do we do? Is it still our house? Do we fix it? Does the home warranty cover it now? Will the home warranty company even believe us? How are the buyers going to react? The next morning, we had the AC guy come look at it and it was just the fan motor that broke. We went ahead and paid for it to make sure that we took care of ALL of our problems before we handed the house over. The buyers were very understanding and were great to work with during this whole fiasco. It was a good lesson for us that God is in control of ALL things - good and bad. The night the AC broke, the weather was nice and I even slept with the comforter on me. Thank you, God, for your provision.

The night we were officially out of our house, Brad had to run Rhys to the ER because he had a 105+ fever! Can I tell you how frightening that was??? God's timing was perfect in this, too, because had it happened one day earlier, we wouldn't have been able to leave him at our in-laws while we finished moving. Our nephew who lives in their house is having surgery on Wednesday and couldn't chance getting sick. (So far, it seems has hasn't gotten the virus - yay!!) We also would have been completely exhausted and had no energy to move our stuff. Thank you, God, for your timing.

Some of our friends who were missionaries in Ethiopia came back home on Sunday. The kids and I stayed home since Rhys was sick, but Brad took our van in case they needed help with their baggage. They ended up not needing his help, but the airlines lost the car seat for their daughter. Fortunately Brad had Rhys' in the van so they were able to use it! Thank you, God, for taking care of the details.

God is good, all the time. All the time, God is good. Can I get an AMEN?? : )

So, not much on my eating and exercising, but hopefully my numbers will show how I did. :D
