Reasons We Know We are Supposed to Go

I once heard that if you think you heard God ask you to do something, you know He really did if it would be really inconvenient. If everything would work out, (i.e., you have the finances, time and other means) you may be facing a temptation rather than a test.

Here are our reasons:

1) family is sick

2) no money - laid off

3) odd jobs that are being done are being done with a broken hand

4) no money, did I mention laid off?

5) front wheel berring gone in the truck ($250 fix)

6) no time - wait, we do have that - laid off

7) front wheel berring just went on the car - at least that is cheaper

Maybe we should stop there... this could get depressing if you let it.

It boils down to we DID hear God and it definitely isn't convenient. J says if we only have enough to get out, we are going, cause God said "GO". I remember people thinking we were nuts to go to MS, too. HA! Next week I might have another sermon on faith! :)

the hand was a generator not starting, he was giving it all he had trying to pull start it, something happened that freed up that cable and he didn't know it so pulled just as hard and... well, you can imagine the rest. Hand hit whatever was above the generator cause it pulled so easily. Oops.

Kids are staying with Grandma and Grandpa... we gave them the option, they thought about it for a day and decided to stay in NY this time.

Miss you, too. A LOT. xoxo
