One Month to Go!

We knew it would happen.... we were prepared.... as you plan and think we are doing well, things are falling into place, it never fails that something happens... well today it was two broken water pipes and a destroyed water meter.  Thankfully we have friends - aka John Mingle who are willing to brave the elements and sacrifice family time to come and help us.  Also we are thankful for neighbors with running water and hot showers - Thank you Kate Alderfer for sharing your hot water this morning so I could look half way presentable for school.  Yesterday it was a disgruntled toddler that caused for us to sigh and feel inadequate - which we also figured that would happen since we had just gotten back from a wonderful couples retreat with our church family.

God is working!  We know he is, and despite the hardships that seem to be bombaring us, we see Him answering prayers and finalizing important details all around us.  The first detail that has fallen into place is that we have an apartment secured for our time in Timisoara.  We have yet to see pictures but we know that it is in a nice part of the city, close to the church and close to the market. We have also finalized some details as far as who will pick us up in Hungary and transport us to the WOL Castle and when we will be picked up for our trip to Romania.

It gives me a sigh of relief as I can start to check things off my list, however it does seem that sometimes as I check one thing off the list, I do add two more.... but that's par for the course.

Please continue to pray for us as we have several big things coming up these next few weekends.  I have a crafting retreat I am leading this weekend (and trying to finish a quiet book for Ella for the trip).  The following weekend is an Open House for my Tastefully Simple Business, followed by a speaking engagement at PA Impact.  These 30 days will fly by!

Deep Breath and a reminder - Romans 8:28

"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
