No pictures...just house-shopping, job-hunting, and (of course) boxes!!

Our computer is still refusing anything of mine that has a USB plug - please notice that I said MINE! Timothy's game controllers work splendidly!! grr... but my camera, my flash drive, my memory card reader - nuh-uh, ain't happenin'!

Okay, so most of you have probably heard by now...we're moving again. lol We are going to pastor a little church in Drumright, OK. It's really more of a mission. The church doesn't have a parsonage, and they won't be able to provide us with a full salary. So, we're driving back-n-forth on weekends, looking for housing and a job for Timothy. How we made this decision is a LONG story (of which I'll spare you!), but basically the impressions just kept getting stronger until we didn't feel like we had any option but to go. We put our house on the market last Monday as our final "fleece". If God would sell our house and help us clear what we needed to completely pay it off, we felt that would be our definite green light - especially with the bottom out of the housing market! (And we needed several thousand more than what we paid for it -realtor fees, etc.)

That was last Monday morning. Monday at noon, the realtor called. Said she needed to take a few more pics, was bringing a sign to put in the yard, and...they were showing the house at 5:30 that evening. We were rather surprised, and again to make a long story shorter, by Wednesday evening we had agreed on a contract - and a price that was just what we needed! God has worked detail after detail out, and we're trusting Him to help us with the looming hurdles.

We are scared, uncertain of what lies ahead, feeling rather unqualified, but totally excited about just making ourselves available and letting Him work through us!!

Keep us in your prayers, and I'll (cross fingers) hopefully have pictures up as soon as the new computer arrives! :)

pictureless :(

My USB ports are failing to recognize my card reader and my camera cord. I think it's time for a new computer! So...I'm not sure when I'll be able to "picture update". Until then, Hadlee's doing great. Her personality is coming out all over! We are very much enjoying watching her, but with the personality is coming her "will" and attitudes. :) I think I have my hands full! She is talking some - but isn't interested in parroting back to us. She'll say something when she needs to, but when I try to get her to repeat, she looks at me like I'm crazy. I guess she's not interested in "wasting words". :)
