Waiting and Keeping Busy....

This is why we have a king sized bed.

Well, no baby yet, so I thought I'd quickly say 'hello'. I have been feeling really good though today I am t-i-r-e-d!

As many of you know, we have been renting a house for the past year from friends who are trying to sell it, and we've been showing it for them. In the past two weeks, our friends have lowered the price significantly, and so the showings have really picked up! Tomorrow, we actually have *four*, which just means we have to be gone for a long chunk of time after we get the house ready. We are really hoping and praying that they will sell it. If they don't, we'll stay here another year and continue to rent, but the house will be off the market for that time (hallelujah!). If they do sell in the next six weeks, we'll need to find something else to rent and move our family rather quickly. I must admit, I was struggling with all the unknowns for several days, having a hard time sleeping and trying to figure out all our options, instead of resting in the Lord. Thankfully, I've had much more peace about it all lately, and I know that the Lord will provide for our needs. We are just praying for His will, whatever that is, and the grace to continue to trust Him.

Praying for His timing if the house sells. He will work it all out.

What a blessing to hear that you're feeling the Lord's peace lately--that's exactly what I've been praying for you daily. I love to see God answer prayer. I will continue to pray for peace, strength, and wisdom in the weeks ahead. I also can't wait to hear about baby!!! You are so very blessed to have a bedful of little-bitties! Get some rest! Love ya, Summer BTW, is this house on a website to view? We've been house-shopping for months now. I don't even know where it's at. Maybe you could send some info in an email? Always on the lookout for a good deal! Thanks!

That is a tricky circumstance to be in right when you are expecting a baby. Will be praying for you and can't wait to hear the news.

Praying for you Candice! I can't imagine homeschooling, house showing, and waiting for a little one to show themselves! We miss you! The Lord is good and sovereign. He has it all perfectly planned out! "Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord,and he will give you the desires of your heart."- Psalm 37:3-4
