I am alive

Testing out Windows Live Writer.  Working at the moment, and have had a ton of stuff happen in our fam since Christmas, and will try and update soon.  Really would like to get all three of my blogs seriously underway and active on searches soon.  Prayers for my family’s health issues appreciated at this time.

Your Grace is Enough

For some reason, this is just the song of the moment for me. I love the sound, the words, and the prayer of it. And with all the chaos now, I need it.

Update soon — nothing really new, just BUSY.

All things are possible

Things have been rough in a lot of ways lately – Chris has been staying up all night just about every 2-3 days lately, and there’s been continuous illness it seems with the kids.

But we have a new situation coming up where we will have 40 hours a week of help for the kids. A new aide already started last weekend for Ryan – Her name is Debbie, and her and our other aide Doreen made a good team with us to care for the boys and get a lot of cleaning done!! They will be here 7 days a week 40 hours a week (roughly) each starting next Monday (just 5 more days!). I feel things will greatly improve then – even though we may still be exhausted and sleep deprived.

Work is going fairly well though lately I hadn’t had time to do enough of it!! I have had about 15 hours of audio since early March that I’ve been working on for local clients. Rog is still doing court research and also helping me with transcription and doing some for Rapid Text as well.

We have a lot of plans for more house repairs with problems we’re having with the sewer system in the basement. It’s 95% better than it was three weeks ago though, but need more work.

I’m tired…

I am really hoping NOW we can get back to church – our helpers are coming Sunday mornings now so I can’t see why we can’t…

Now what is amazing that this song (above) and this song (below) came into my head, and I instantly found them after that in the list. God is that way for me – songs are my inspiration. Thank you Lord!

testimony

in response to: http://www.livejournal.com/users/psychlea/24512.html

I don’t remember a time in my life where I didn’t hear or know about Jesus Christ and Christianity. My mom and dad were divorced when I was 4, and laying down and going to sleep, with the words of Moody Bible Institute on WCRF 103.3 Cleveland Ohio coming into my mind as the radio played, are some of my first memories. Church life was not consistent through the years, but WCRF was always there, as was my family’s Bible and seeing them read and pray.

I was raised Catholic for the most part, and attended Catholic school from 1st through 4th grade. (Didn’t go to Kindergarten!). My whole family was Catholic, but we didn’t go to church a lot. I imagine that the 4 years I attended school were the years that my mom attended most faithfully as that seems to be the norm for when you have a child in a parochial school.

Quiet in the chaos

Just ate lunch, and got Ryan off on the bus. I need to get back to packing. But I just turned on some Christian songs off Windows Media Player and thought I’d write just a little. It was so nice to finally answer some comments – Thanks for writing everyone and your thoughts/prayers.

It is so hard to wait on this house!! But I know if it’s meant to be it will all work out. All the signs seem to be pointed for it to work out.

It had to go through several steps – and we’re almost done.

  • Offer on house. Did that sometime in August, with waiting for THAT to be accepted.
  • Counteroffered, was turned down, but the other offer was lower than asking. In detail, we offered 134,000 to the 142 asking (I think?) then they countered back at 139,000.
  • We thought about it for a while, then decided to offer 137,000 with appliances included.
  • After we decided to do this, but hadn’t picked up the phone yet, we found out that Chris’s school attendance was NOT a given, and this was right before labor day, on Friday.
  • Waited 5 excruciating days for the school to say YES, Chris can come!
  • Called, gave the counteroffer, and was called back and told, 139,000 WITH appliances. We accepted. A lot of prayer had gone into this, as we were a little worried about almost doubling our mortgage. We will have to get a second mortgage, also, to secure mortgage payments on our first house while we’re trying to sell it, AND to pay off our credit cards.
  • Went in to the broker selling the house, and did loan papers with him, waited a day or so, and he said we were approved. Was shocked we didn’t have to give any income information. Apparently some kind of loan a lot of self-employed people do. (About the 7th of September?)
  • Worried about the form the loan was in, which was called a stated income loan.
  • Had attorneys review the loan (this was in our contract, as we had strange feelings about it from the beginning. Was told it was probably FRAUDULENT.
  • Continue reading

Good things come to them that wait

and come see my new layout!

The loan has been approved! We are just waiting for all the papers to be verified and then we shall get KEYS! in a few weeks to maybe a month.

We had a bit of a test early this week as we were told by our attorneys that the loan arrangement did not look very solid. So we had to go to a different lender and reapply all over again!! So a few extra stressful days there…

Waiting, and trusting,

and PACKING!

More Power To Ya

More Power to Ya: The Petra Devotional

Also featured on:
Muscle Shoals, Vol. 4: More Power to Ya

You say you’ve been feeling weaker, weaker by the day,
You say you can’t make the joy of your Salvation stay,
But Good things come to them that wait, not to those who Hesitate,
So, hurry up & wait upon the Lord

Chorus:
More power to ya, when you’re standing on His word.
When you’re trusting with your Whole heart in the Message you have heard,
More power to ya, when we’re all in one accord,
they that wait upon the Lord they shall renew,
They shall renew their strength

Jesus promised His Disciples He’d give strength to them,
Jesus told them all to tarry in Jerusalem,
When they were all in one accord the power of His Spirit Poured & they Began to turn the World around

(CHORUS)

So Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might,
Put on all His armour and fight the good fight, in all of our weakness
He becomes so strong, and He gives us the power & the Strength to carry on

(CHORUS)
