Where have I...

...been, you ask? 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!
