Here we go again...

My computer came back to life for a moment in time...and now it's complaining again! So here I am posting from a computer that does not have my pictures on it...so again you'll have to wait for a photo update...hopefully not to long of a wait though.

But while you wait I want to share with you what the Lord did over this Christmas season...He gave us gifts...three of them...

The first gift he gave came in the form of space to move around...our dear friends we are staying with asked us to take care of their wonderful horses, cats, and German shepherd...we gladly accepted and they also asked us to please use their home for our Christmas celebrations...complete with a huge tree and all the trimmings...we were overwhelmed by the offer and felt so thankful....thankful for the use of a nice, open kitchen, a large table, a open living room and large TV...it was wonderful to be able to roam without knocking something down or bumping into each other...

The next two gifts were found at our post office. A couple we know prayed and felt most assuredly that the Lord impressed upon them to send us a monetary gift. It was such a huge blessing to our family. We were so surprised by their generosity towards us. BUT the Lord was not done...as I was waiting in line out came the post office lady with an enormous box and handed it to me...it had our address on it but was from a name we did not recognize at all. I thought for sure the post office had made a huge mistake. When we opened the box we realized that it was for us as there were presents, wrapped and marked with individual names....we were so moved. We all thought who, who, who could this be? It finally dawned on us who this family was...a family that knows a mutual friend of ours...they e-mailed back and forth and got ideas from the friends of ours and sent our box. It was filled with gifts just perfect for our needs and wants...just perfect!

Those gifts were just a reminder to our family that the Lord has not forgotten us, our situation, our struggles....He knows and sees and understands...As I type this I know He is leading our family to stand steady...wait for the Lord's timing...He is the orchestrator of all things...

So we wait for His hand to move upon our situation...wait for His hand to reveal His mighty plan in our lives...wait for Him...wait....wait...wait!

I hope you enjoyed this post - even though there were no pictures available to look at...but can you imagine the smiles and joy we felt realizing we were not forgotten...not in the least!

P.S. - We've been having the head of our household read and explain the Declaration of Independence...it's powerful and moving and I want to challenge each and every one of you to read it, memorize it, to ask your self what You, the people, are to do in the midst of tyranny...it will encourage you....next we will be studying the Bill of Rights then on to the Constitution...Can't wait.

Hugs to all...
