Children born during one's youth are like arrows in a warrior's hand...blessed is the man whose quiver if full of them

Where have I...
...been, you ask?
Well...you would probably not believe all of it if I told you! And I am sure I don't have the room and you don't have the time! But I will clue you in on a few things...
As of yesterday, we had 1 day to pack and move out
Today, our house sold at auction to the bank
We have about 2 weeks to get out! (Better than 24 hours!)
A DEAR lady has volunteered her empty home to our family to live in, free of rent as long as we need it!
That is AMAZING!
We have LOTS of work to do but my kids have GREAT attitudes!
I went through a terrible loss but I am recovering with peace
God has provided in BEAUTIFUL, UNEXPECTED ways!
We all had the stomach flu that strung out over a span of 2 weeks
Yes, it was as bad as it sounds!
We survived! (I still am wanting a shirt to wear that reads, " I survived being a mom of 12 with the flu!")
My husband had an interview
We have not heard back yet
We are still praying for a particular blessing that we feel God has for us
Not sure of the timing, but we know God knows what is best for us
I have never been through as much as I have been through in the past 2 months
God has never felt closer!
His grace is ever-present and my faith has become SO great!
That is only through Him because He has carried us
My husband has been a pillar and I am so totally in love with him even more
All of this is worth it to show God how much I love Him and that I trust Him
He can be trusted and His way IS best even if we don't understand it
I have had moments of kicking and screaming quite often
I finally am "still"
It's better that way
Our lives will be changing even more, but with His hand, we will be more than okay!
Thank you for your continued prayers! I cannot tell you how they have carried me through! What we have been through, has forever changed me. I will be Jesus hands and feet and not depend that others are doing it! I will get my hands "dirty" and dig deep to make sure that I am used by Him to love others in the way that He has shown us HIS love and provision!
I will be continuing the story, but time may be far and few between until we get moved. Hang in there with your hands folded in prayer! I am truly humbled!
