Our BIG News!!

We are moving back east!  We have lived on the West coast for over 17 years and we are moving near my family next month.  We have a house in a great neighborhood with fishing pond, basketball court, playground, walking trails and we will be across from the lake!  It is amazing how it all happened.

My husband has been praying for years as to what God wanted him to do.  He did get a place but he didn't want to leave WA.  At one time we thought we were supposed to go through Seminary but my husband never got a call personally.  Thursday night at church my husband got a miracle!  Not only did God work this miracle in his life but also mine as Nate finally had NO doubts about what God wanted us to do!!  We shared all this with our Pastor and we are all rejoicing in the wonderful miracles God performed that night.

The next morning - the perfect house in the town we wanted came for sale and we got it!  Not only did we get it but more miracles just keep happening with the extremely low interest rate we locked in to a possible free move through the company.  I'm telling you - when you accept God's will - He starts moving!!

I had written this sad post about accepting our situation as I waited for years for my husband to make up his mind.  I had come to the place in my mind that I had given up with things ever changing.  That next night is when God brought these miracles!  To think - I was so depressed and down - and the blessing was just around the corner.  God is so good!!

My family is flipping out - they have always wanted us closer and other than parents, my family has never even met my son and he is almost 4!  They also haven't seen us in 6 years - so not only is this a big move to a new place, and a new (first) house but we will also have the biggest homecoming ever!!  I will be just 5 hours away from my family because we wanted to stay with our wonderful church organization and they have a great church where we are moving.  We know the Pastor and his wife and they are AMAZING people and are also so excited for our move.

I could go on with the details - how we already made connections with some people there, etc. - but I will not make this a really long post LOL!  Just remember, when it seems all is lost and you are ready to give up - THAT is when the blessing is just around the corner - hold on!!

*Update - go read our big news here: http://www.christianhomekeeping.com/2016/09/our-big-news.html

I'm busy planning our move - to where, I can't say yet until hubby gives the go ahead but I can tell you that it is an unbelievable miracle of God!  Just how it has all come to fruition and God's hands have been all over it is simply welcoming to my soul as I've honestly not been myself for a long time now.  I've been in a bad place in my mind, emotions and even spiritually.  However, God is always on time and I'm feeling better and gaining more faith in His goodness everyday!  More to come soon!!

I did want to show you all some things I've been working on in the home as I'm able.  I got these chalkboard labels from Amazon for just a few dollars and then some white chalk markers and I labeled my son's baskets with his toys and then some of my spices and some bins in my laundry/linen cabinet.  I plan on doing ALL of my spices, herbs and pantry items.  I also want to use more in the homeschool storage area and more areas I'm sure will come up.  Here are some pics:




I got rid of my Facebook - I barely lasted a week and then I told myself I would give it a full month to really give it a chance.  I deleted it for more than one reason - it is a lot of reasons really from it being addicting to me (I always wanted to get on there and check it and then spent less time with my kids), to being discouraged by others actions on there.  I feel so much better with it gone.  I've thought of getting it later on and only logging in every once in a while.  I do miss connecting with people on there though.

I deleted my last 2 posts because in one I felt I was ranting and even though I agree with what I said, I just felt bad about it and then the second one, I could delete because God worked a miracle for us right after I posted that!  I had "accepted" things would never change in the post but then I didn't really accept them, I was just trying to talk myself into feeling better.  Well, I didn't have to feel bad much longer because God brought an amazing miracle our way.  Crazy I know - bear with me!  Can you tell I'm about to burst to share the news!?  I better stop typing you guys or I will blurt it out!
