Speed Bump

So we have hit a speed bump in our "plan". Last week we had two great offers on our house, this week we are back to no offers.

Isn't it funny how we say God is good when everything is coming together just liked we had hoped and prayed. And then the second things start slowing down, turning the other direction or even stopping we begin to doubt.

I start doubting myself, my plan, my wisdom and worst of all I start doubting God. Why is that?

I know, I know. It's because we are human. But seriously when is my faith really going to grow? When am I really going to let go of my plans and my desires and trust Him completely? Will I ever? Will this battle continue all the days of my life?

I'm sure God rolls his eyes at me when I begin to let worry, fear and doubt creep in. Just like when my kids don't trust me....I laugh at them. Where is their faith? Don't they know I am their mother? I would never put them in harms way.

Maybe I need a timeout. Maybe I need a good whoopin'. Or maybe I just need to grow up in God!

I found this quote by Martin Luther King Jr. "Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase."

This step of faith that we have taken is a big one. It might end up being steeper, longer and harder then we thought. I can either keep going up or fall back down, however, I have a feeling that to get where I want to be I'm going to have to climb those stairs sooner or later.

A BIG Thank You!

Whoa! What a whirlwind these last couple weeks have been. So much to post about but first I would like to tell all of our friends and neighbors in Hermiston THANK YOU!!

We had so much help packing and loading our UHAUL, what a blessing!

And to all of our friends that stopped by, invited us over and wished us well, THANKS!

These last two years have been, well, strange. We have never lived in limbo and uncertainty for so long. (I promise we are not as unstable as it may have appeared)

We are so happy to have a direction and be working towards a goal. What a great feeling that is!

So, to all of my Hermiston friends, thank you all for the impact you have had on my life. Whether big, small, in person, via blog, daily, monthly, often or not you all have left a footprint on my life path. I will never regret my time there and all the amazing people I met.
