Please pray for us
Another photo of an Iris. I finished digging them up and they are drying. I searched the net and got conflicting suggestions. So I am going to try a couple of different ways. Potting them up, storing in a box of sawdust shavings (easy to come by when you have horses.)and storing them in the fridge. I have enough to test out all these options. I also dug up wild violets today and put them in a pot. I still have canna's to put in pots.
Did I mention earlier today we found a house. The more I think about it the more I am falling in love with it. It is much smaller than what I have had but it is just really cute. And I really think we can decorate it so cool. I am just excited and looking forward to moving.
I wanted to post a picture and ask everyone to pray for us. Because basically we are waiting for them to approve us. Because we are full time in the ministry and we are supported and funded by donations we can't show any real income like a pay check. So they are checking all our references. I am just praying that God it really is God's will because I am just falling in love with this little house.
As I am packing I am running across things that I have had put away that I couldn't use or had a place to put. That sounds strange I know because we are down sizing but yet I plan to use things I have had put away.
Well for instance I have these really cool blue bottles. The new house has a window over the kitchen sink. Can you just picture blue bottles with a daisy in each lined up on the window sill? (the current house; the sink is in an island seperating the kitchen and eating area.)
I have loved this house but it is time to move on.
And flower beds let me talk about them. I have daffodil and tulip bulbs that I got free. The new house has the cutest little patio with a little "L" shaped brick flower box. It will just look so sweet next spring with the daffodils and tulips blooming!
And the front porch well it will definately hold two rockers and does not have a wall like the one I have now. Yea Lord!
I just cannot help but get excited. I am trusting that God directed us to this cute little house. I am praying that he will provide all the provision necessary for us to move.
I am also excited because it is so close to our mission location just 2-5 minutes so our life will change so much. And it is the same distance from both of our mothers.
I am so looking forward to moving and settling in and having people over for dinner.
Or girlfriends over for lunch.
We will know for sure tomorrow if we have been approved so please dear friends pray for us.
Starting tomorrow because I am busy with packing I am going to share some of my favorite blogs. I'll be posting pictures of porches and gardens. So please come by this week and check it all out.
Thanks so much for your prayers.
