I’ve been working for the past 2 days getting the blog software updated and trying to come up with a post about our move. I even have a draft written and pictures uploaded. But I will have to save that one for later.
After being up north for six weeks I am not any closer to knowing why we needed to move so far away than I was before the move. God is at work and even though I haven’t been faithful in my devotions he is. I’ve wondered about the time I spend with the kids every evening reading a devotion and doing prayers. I’ve worried over not finding a church right away. We’ve had hay get rained on. We’ve struggled to find storage for all the hay. The kids have been bickering and uncooperative. I feel clueless about which school we should send the kids. I’ve worried about whether I should try to find a job outside of the home or not. We still do not have a closing date on the farm.
So despite not having the answers I want to have, I want to share with you where we have seen God at work! This evening while the kids I were out playing after supper, Paul pointed out the sun breaking through the clouds. He wanted me to take a picture, so here it is. We had a good talk with his sisters about heaven. Then the kids saw a small rainbow before coming inside. Our devotion tonight was about Noah. Again we had a good talk about the flood and how different the world is now. Even Ruth who often stays out of such talk joined in. A glimmer of hope! The house is very well suited to us, which is a huge blessing.
Jeremy has made all the hay here at the home farm and has enough additional acres lined up that he will be able to make hay until the snow flies! Our hay buyer is very happy with the hay we’ve made. While visiting the different churches we are making many friends. Many who are praying with us that we find the church God has for us! We have met complete strangers who tell us that they’ve been praying for a family just like us to buy this particular farm and farm it. For now this is where we need to be. God is good, we don’t need all the answers, just Faith and Trust in Him.
You are my hiding place and my shield;
I hope in your word.
