Here we are

A lot has happened in the last few weeks. We're now in Oregon (Columbia City) at Wanda's (Greg's mom's) house. Every summer we spend a few weeks with each set of parents. This year however, we're here in the Northwest to stay. It's weird, in some ways it feels like just another summer.... but not quite. I can't stop thinking about all that needs to happen in the next month. Greg still needs to find a job, and we need to find an apartment and move all of our stuff in (right now it's in Wanda's garage).

At different times I feel quite anxious about the fact that Greg doesn't have a job. But I keep hearing God say, "Rest." "Trust me," "Wait and see how I provide for you."

He also says,
"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."

So here we are in Oregon... in a place of dependence on God.

Though it may not feel that the circumstances are perfect right now, we are GLAD to have you hear. Seeing Greg at church on Sunday made me happy! Reminds me of all the good times we shared in Mexico together....back in the days before kids. ;-)

I have been really praying for you guys - especially since that last job offer you guys turned down - I knew that it might be hard, but I KNOW that God will bless your obedience and faithfulness!!!!
