A Look Back on 2016

Wow!  Wow!  Wow!  That is what I have to say for this past year.  My post from last December was about hoping 2016 would be the year that we REBUILD what Satan had destroyed and hardship and life had broken down.  Not only did God REBUILD it all but He blessed us immensely and the blessings keep pouring in.  I'm literally drowning in God's blessings and I've been so happy that I've even lost about 10 pounds lol.

2016 started out with hope that this year wasn't going to be as tragic as 2015 was.  I started this year in physical therapy and it continued on for half of the year until I felt I was almost fully recovered.  Then, we got in an auto accident in July and I was again, back to rehabilitating some injuries.  My husband had decided around April that we were going to stay in WA state and buy a home.  That didn't end well - nothing seemed to work out, it was a nightmare!

Thankfully, sometime around the end of August, my husband said he wasn't going to fight the will of God anymore and we were moving to Ohio (a place he got in prayer almost 3 years ago).  As soon as my husband told God he would do His Will - it was like a flood of blessings and miracles flowed out on us.  The next day, we got this Ohio visitors guide in the mail (that had never come the year before I ordered it and it just so happen to show up at the perfect time).  It is pictured to the right of this - on it said: Anticipation.  Something fun is about to happen - don't you love that feeling?  Oh yes - something fun was about to happen!!

I could literally write a book on the whole thing but to keep this short - it only took about a month from his decision, to move, buy a home and be in Ohio.  Not only did we get a wonderful home at just the right price, God worked ways that still amaze me when I think on them and we got our money back that we used for our move.  Then, most recently, God blessed us with a brand new 2017 car!  Not just a car, but a very nice car.  I still am in awe at the ways of God when you ask in faith - He can do ANYTHING!!

I'm probably the happiest I've been in 10 years or more.  My husband is incredibly happy and so are our children.  We felt the presence of God when we arrived in this city that God called us to be in and are aware that He has a purpose of some sort for us.  Whether it is to just be happy or to be a help or both - we are thankful and ready and willing to do whatever God wants us to!

Some friends that know me very well have all told me they aren't used to me being so happy lol.  This is my testimony to others - just go with what you know God wants you to do, no matter if you can't understand the WHY - just obey God and understand later!  Step out on faith and God WILL bless in ways you didn't even think of.

God did the REBUILD this year - and I'm moving forward into the new year with a new life, new city, new state, new home, new car and a new me!!
