It's windy

Please no worries...I am still alive and kicking.

Just with our fence that has completely collapsed around our home.

Perfect way to start the day.

Sadly the first thought through my head was Pug is not going to be able to go outside all day and will destroy my home.


Times like these are where I hate being a homeowner and want to pick up all our junk and move in with mom and dad. Instead I'll sit in front of the t.v. and cry and eat a carton of pringles instead because that makes everything better.

Seriously though, I really feel we are having our faith a little tested. And that's fine we will still praise Him every step of the way. I say that because this month our heater has gone out, my brakes on a fairly new car went crazy and we've been in consistent pray about an opportunity to join in our church's plans to plant a new church.

What can I say I like consistency and chaos makes me squirm. Just a lot of unknowns and it's tough handing God the wheel.

So we're buckling down gettiing consistent on tithing, setting aside a good quiet time each day and remembering to praise Him even when the protective fence falls down around us.

I hate months like that - I think we all have them from time to time. But I think if you stay faithful to God through those times - He will bless you! We have to trust Him and not lean on our own understanding.
And anytime we have a problem with our house - I wish I was still a renter in an apartment who could pick up and move when I didn't like it anymore.

We are living proof of what God can do for us during the hard times! Stay faithful to him and he will carry you through. It may not always be financial but he will carry you through. I remember when we moved here and 7 weeks in Jeremy lost his job. We went 8 more weeks with no income ... I still don't know how me made it through. ryan needed surgery during that time (no insurance) Pace fell down our stairs (no insurance again) but we made it through only by His help! Hang in there during the rough times and even though it may be the hardest thing ... keep tithing! He will provide!

Hope Boy feels better!
