Housing Development - Update - Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Our Sleepy Little Town

Of course, today we remember all the blessings we've received and all the reasons we have to be thankful. If we said them all in prayer before our meal, our food would surely be cold before we've had a chance to name a small portion!

Here are more pictures of our new house.

from our lot.

I hope all of you have had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you continue to find at least one thing to be thankful for each morning. See if you can come up with ten. It will change the course of your day!

Prayer for Kristy Dykes

How often do we get to witness God's amazing power and strength?

That's what I've seen as I've followed the recent journey of a fellow ACFW member.

Her name is Kristy Dykes and she's a Christian writer. Her current story will bring you to tears.

Please, would you pray with me for a miracle for her?

See her blog for the complete story--A story of enduring love, unwavering faith, and complete trust.

Scroll down to November 7th for the beginning of the story.

NaNoWriMo - Update

Well, we're past the half-way mark and I've been able to keep my writing goals so far.

My current word count is 30,805. The Goal is 50,000 by the end of the month.

It's been a great experience and I'm glad I made the commitment to do this. I pray that I can continue at the pace I've been able to work!

I'll keep you posted...

Housing Development - Update

Things are moving forward in our house-building. The Lord has blessed us with amazing weather and our builder took advantage of a couple of those days.

The slab was poured a couple of weeks ago and I was able to add something to our foundation.

Within the center of our foundation, I was able to place a Bible opened to Jeremiah 29:11.

Jeremiah 29:11 (King James Version) King James Version (KJV)

11For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

We've also been adding scripture within the walls.
God has blessed us beyond measure with his provision and we give Him the glory!
