well i pretty much have everything unpacked and we are settling into a routine again. we have a packed weekend. tomorrow is my cousins open baby shower and Sunday is Terry's birthday. School starts on the 8th and we have plenty of orientations and open houses to attend to in the next week. We also are thinking about homeschooling Haley. She is absolutely begging us to. I am really praying for wisdom in this. I am also working on getting back to working with youth on Wednesdays. I really miss them.

wow what a couple of weeks. I have to say that we have seriously had a stressful couple of weeks and really if it was a test of some sort i failed miserably and yet it has got me thinking about some things that i don't feel comfortable about sharing here at this time. We did end up moving and I really love it. We are not in the boonies anymore yea! The kids are really loving it too. Still unpacking and purging.

Acts 17:25-29 (Amplified Bible)
25Neither is He served by human hands, as though He lacked anything, for it is He Himself Whogives life and breath and all things to all [people].
26And He made from one [common origin, one source, one blood] all nations of men to settle on the face of the earth, having definitely determined [their] allotted periods of time and the fixed boundaries of their habitation (their settlements, lands, and abodes),
27So that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel after Him and find Him, although He is not far from each one of us.
28For in Him we live and move and have our being; as even some of your [own] poets have said, For we are also His offspring.
29Since then we are God's offspring, we ought not to suppose that Deity (the Godhead) is like gold or silver or stone, [of the nature of] a representation by human art and imagination, or anything constructed or invented.

God is so good. The last couple of days have been challenging but I am not worried which is atypical for me. I am trusting He has everything under control. I came across a song that touched my heart and reminded my just How loved we are in Gods eyes.
He also reminded me that my name Amy means Beloved. What a bonus.

wow friday has been a whirlwind. lots of things that i cannot go into her but has had me questioning a few things and testing my trust in people. It has also been day that God has asked me ok now you say you trust me so trust me. I ask you to pray for my family as we head through a little uncertainty and a season of trusting God when things are changing. Terry got the call that he is going to be full time at is new job with ins. after 3 months. Yea God. I asking God for a babysitting job and believing he has it waitng for me in due time.
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
- Matthew 7:7-8 (see also verses 9 -12)

Wow. I can not believe how fast this week has flown by. its actually been great though. God is at work and I am feel a new sense of Joy that have felt in a while. Terry is back to work (yea God)and things are still a little chaotic but i am getting a handle on that. I have waking up very early the last 3 days which if anyone knows me i am not a morning person. but t i have got whole bunch of work done during time and had som e awesome prayer and worship time as well. I am working on some specific things like getting school clothes and supplies for the kids. All5 are going this year, ouch! Even though Terry is back to work we have not received a paycheck from them yet and are still are on unemployment so when he does get paid guess what the landlord is going to be very happy lol. If anyone knows of any good garage sales or has any ideas for getting the kids ready for school. Please let me know. God has started Blessing us in this area so I know that He has a plan. We are also having a garage with a friend on HI-Land trail off owen rd in Linden Aug 21 - 22 if anyone is interested. Also the girls are going to camp that week too. Praying that God becomes even bigger to them during that time. This is Haleys first year going, so be praying that she does get homesick or changes her mind
I received this flyer and thought i would pass it along if anyone is interested.
