What a blessing this rain and cooler temps have been!
The boys have been riding their bikes and the yard is getting green again.
Things are looking up. We have a showing today, YAY, and I'm praying that they are the one. It only takes one ;)
In the midst of a pity party a couple weeks ago that included crying and a bit of pouting, my glasses broke and fell right off my face. My response was mature and rational. I grabbed the broken frames and yelled, "ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!" You may remember these are the same frames that lost an arm 5 days into owning them. Thankfully Mindy C. mentioned a few months back she had some extra frames if I was interested. I messaged her and she dropped them by the house. I took them into the Doc on Monday and they put my prescription in free of charge! They came in this morning and now I'm sporting cute frames with 2 attached arms!
I posted a double oven on Craigslist that I had purchased for the new house. We spent a chunk of our savings knowing what a great deal it was. The problem is, it doesn't fit. So now we have this beautiful oven sitting in our garage and our savings acct is still empty. Today I received a phone call from a nice older couple in St. Joe that are very interested in our oven and our recliner! They'll be here shortly after the showing.
Today has so much potential. I am excited and eager to see what the day brings.
Regardless of the outcome, I am thankful for this time. The last four months has been full of ups and downs in all areas of our lives. When I pray I thank Him for all of it. I know that this is a time of growth for us. I pray for our church family, I pray for those who love us, and I pray for those who don't. In some ways it's been a difficult summer, but He has a plan and I love the rain. The healing rain that comes only from Him.
