God is so Good

A week ago my family was robbed and it has literally been a day by day existence for us. It's a horrible thing to experience, and it takes time to come to an understanding of what really happened.

Then, God shows up in an amazing way. My husband received a call (one week after the robbery) and was offered his first position as Pastor to the UMC in Truth or Consequences, NM!
What a blessing! Becoming a Pastor is Joe's dream and why he is in school. We never thought he would get a pastorate before he finished school, but here it is!

He will preach in T or C for the first time on August 16th! We have two weeks to get it in gear and move.

One huge blessing is that we will only be 2 hours away from Albuquerque rather than 3 1/2. This means we can get the boys to the hematologist faster. It will definitely help when we have to get Christian in for weekly visits in September. (I'll talk more about that later).

I hope you will join me in praying for our family as we step out in faith into where God is leading us and to especially pray for our children. It is always hardest on the children.

One of my favorite Psalms says it all:

"The Lord had done great things for us and we are filled with joy." Psalm 126:3

Today I Am Thankful For:

1. my Facebook friends
2. feeling better from a weekend of being horribly sick
3. the prospect of a fresh start
4. my Deming church home
5. boxes
