I have waited so long to be able to say these words, and those of you with a house for sale KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING!!! I have several blogger friends that are selling, have just sold or have moved into the new house and are still waiting to sell the old. It is a gut wrenching, hand wringing, trust testing, emotional experience, no?
Well, here goes......we are closing on our farm on May 31, and I would really like to be able to tell this story in that time. But it cannot be in one post, there are to many miracles to share. And when I say miracles I'm not talking parting the Red Sea kind, it's the little occurences, that you almost have to do a double take to make sure you read/heard/thought right.
Now, mind you, there are HUGE things occuring here, but it's the little things that are the biggest sometimes. I am going to link up to old posts now and again, because God has seemingly woven this tale together over quite some time and I hope I don't lose you as I am trying to tell it. It is all there in my mind, but sometimes I don't convey my thoughts exactly right. I have to remember that you have no idea what has been happening. I've wanted to shout it from my farmhouse rooftop, and at times whine and complain about all this waiting and trusting. OH wait I did whine and complain didn't I?
I have experienced Mt. Everest highs and Death Valley lows in the last few years, I say few because honestly I don't even remember when this all started, but the further into it I get, the more I realize, God started this process long before I had any notion of it at all!
Remember this post? This is a precious gift from God. It may be neither here nor there as to what is happening now, but I did always wonder why God sent us to Oregon. I don't know if this is only part of the reason or the whole reason, but it meant the world to me to discover this.
And that is where I'll begin........
