Everything is Good!

I want to apologize because I had stated that I would start my new journey, Jesus as a child, right after January 1, and I am a little delayed.  We, my husband, my self, and our youngest son, decided at the end of 2016 to sell our house and downsize.  Simplify our lives so that we would be able to pursue our passions, spend more time together and enjoy life each day to the fullest.

Well, we began the new year, 2017, with our house being sold. Then came the whirlwind of inspections, appraisers, contracts…blah, blah, blah, and back and forth. Who knew selling a house was so much fun?  And to make life a little more interesting, we decided to trust God for our next home.  Now remember everything happens in God’s timing not ours.

So, with God, we did finally find a home… this past weekend.  The best part was that the house felt like home and I have a prayer closet!  Sometimes waiting on God can be so tough, especially for me.  My husband will say to me, “Now you gave it to God, don’t take it back from Him.”  I like the orderly, scheduled existence; but that is truly not living life the way God meant for us to live…always depending on Him.

Note: During this time my son and myself became sick with a virus they thought. But now it might be sinuses instead. Oh brother! ( I am rolling my eyes.)

While all of this hurry up, chaotic scrambling has been going on,  the bible verse Romans 8:28 flashes in my mind.

“All things work together for good to those who love God, who have been called according to His purpose.”

Except I still have an uneasiness about God’s plan for us, because you know God has a sense of humor!  Why else would there be a seven-day lapse between the closings? And if you have ever read your bible then you know 7 days and 40 days can be life changing events.

Or could God just be having a little fun with me? (I am trying to convince myself here.) Because of the lapse between closings, we will be living in a camper with three dogs ages 16,15, and 5; and a 10-year-old cat.  Or maybe this is just a new-age stress test and your turn is next.  What am I worried about any way?

I have watched Tiny House Nation and seen animals and owners co-existing in a very pleasant manner.  At least when the cameras are there and aimed at them. But… our cat is set in his ways.  He insists on doing his business in a hole in the ground outside.  No litter box for this cat.  The one time we boarded him, it was a disaster, because he would not use the box.  He held it in. They finally had to put a leash on him and walk him outside.

Just keep repeating…

“All things work together for good to those who love God, who have been called according to His purpose.”

“All things work together for good to those who love God, who have been called according to His purpose.”

At least I will have some interesting, if not hilarious stories to share with you. So, please be patient with me! We will start our journey concerning Jesus’ childhood soon.

 

God Bless You!

God Bless America!
