" A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove......but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child."

God's will

God has always as long as Dan and I have been married shut door's in our lives. We have searched God's will, prayed and fasted for His leading on many occassions. We have always put off buying a house because we thought God was calling us to the mission field. We came back from Vancouver Island settled that God wanted us to stay here and serve in our local church, so we decided to plant roots and buy a piece of property and slowly build on it. Then one day we got a call from Dan's aunt saying she knew a person who knew a person that needed to get rid of their double wide so that they could build a home where the double wide is, the people with the double wide wanted to be a blessing to someone and give it away for free. We contacted the owner and made an appointment to see the double wide not expecting to be very impressed, we were overwhelmed!!! it is a beutifull 3 bd 2 bath, ceader sided, hard wood floor,60% remodled home. We wnet home and started checking on prices to move it, they were telling us they thought it would be anywhere from 3 to 9 thousand to move it, turns out we found someone to move it for a little over a thousand, someone we dont even know has offered to do the septic on the property, people have also donated money and time to it all, and to top it off, we got a call from someone that wants an easement to accsess their property behind us and they are offering us 25,000 bucks.
People have asked us what we think God is doing in all this. Dan and I believe God wants to stregthen our family and slow us down. We believe He is showing His great love for us. We dont deserve it, but we give Him all the glory. We dont know everything God is doing in this, but we are on the look out for his leading in every area of this situation. God has also blessed other's in this by seeing God work!!

Women are from Venus

I am a women, but for the life of me i will never understand us. I can truly feel for our men when they say they don't understand us either! Why did God make us so complex?
I will never understand the games we play, or why we even play games, whether on purpose or unintentional.
It's the flesh mixed with feelings and emotions, what a bad combination.
