The Gift

  • For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16
  • For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23
  • If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God has raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Romans 10:9

All things on hold...

Dear Family and Friends,

Just a quick update on our move. The closing was postponed from last week due to some additional documents needed to insure the selling bank has the right to do so. No new closing date yet, but everyone is hoping it will be sometime this week. It has really been a stressful week and I don't think the stress is over!

On the bright side, my landlord has offered me two additional weeks in my apartment should we not close by the end of the month. That has taken some of the pressure off. God has certainly blessed me once again with some wonderful people in my life.

Sophie is doing well. She has a huge runny nose this week - reminds me of the week we had in China. She had a runny nose then that just wouldn't stop! Ahhhh! The memories! They all come flooding back (no pun intended!!).

I will write more later.

Still packing....

Dear Family and Friends,

We are still packing for our move. Keep praying that the foreclosure deed is filed before my scheduled closing date of the 22d. I have already given notice for my apartment for September 1st, and have no idea where we will be going if the closing is not completed before that date.... Oh well, God has it all in control and I'm just along for the ride!

Sophie is getting sassy - I think the boxes upon boxes have turned her world upside down. She wakes up and there are new boxes in the dining room and less "stuff" everywhere else! But, she is still too cute and even with her sassyness, she makes me laugh!

I need to run for now. Just wanted to give you some new pictures.

More boxes???? Where DO they come from??

Sitting in a shoe box! Notice the dry pool in the living room??? Makes a great place for watching Disney movies!

Sitting in a dish drainer headed for the Salvation Army! who needs toys when you have old dish drainers hanging around??
