one year ago today ...

this post is from ONE YEAR AGO ... i thought i would repost it, because after being here in the condo one year ... we are still so very aware of and thankful for, God's kindness towards us!!!

the sale of our cottage, finding the rental and now, finally, the much prayed for condo - all these moments i have shared with you ...

tonight is the last sleep before we get the keys to answered prayer - imagine!

if you have the time, take a journey with me into my archives ... to see how the Lord directed our path to arrive where we are today ...

the cottage we had lived in for 14 years, sold dec 2, 2005 ... we felt so strongly that God was in it ...

next came the realization we didn't have anywhere to move!

then the Lord gave me verses to cling to, through a scary time
click here that started the long list of "no" answers to places we wanted to buy click here

even finding a rental seemed to be extremely difficult
click here, though God was up for the task! click here

my anxieties continued, until i had to "fire" the hardworking saija, and let God deal with everything ... click here


after much searching and prayer ... God just "dropped" the condo into our laps!

He HAS given me the desire of my heart ... but in the end - it is only God - not possessions or people or places ... that IS the DESIRE of my HEART...

to HIM be the Glory ... now and forever more ...

yup yup ... only one more sleep ... *grin*

"I will greatly rejoice in the Lord,
My soul shall be joyful in my God ..."
Isaiah 61:10a
