This blog is simply the story about my little life
with my sweet family that the Lord has blessed me with
and the day in, day out things that we do.
It basically is my online diary/photo album of our life.
I'm glad you're here!

We're moving!!!!!

We sold our house and we're moving from here..... here!!!!!
We have wanted to move to the country for probably 15 years, but nothing was working for us. 
Seven years ago we found a place on 52 acres, but we could not sell our house, so that deal fell through.
We have been looking ever since and nothing worked out for us....that is until now!
 I believe that God had us wait for His perfect timing. He allowed all the boys to grow up in our yellow home before this happened, including our youngest son who graduated from high school last year. We are now waiting for our first grandchild to arrive in the fall and this house is going to be perfect for grandkids!
 It's an older home sitting on 7 beautiful acres! We are thrilled!
 We've been dreaming of being out in the quiet country for so long and it is so peaceful and quiet out here.  What's so nice about this place though, is that even though it's out in the country, it's only 5 minutes from town and it's just about 4 miles from our current home!
 The property is stunning with the beautiful trees, fields and.....
....a small creek and something I've wanted my whole life......
....a beautiful pond!
I cannot believe that the Lord blessed us like this.
There's even a Lilac tree in the back, something I have longed for for many years. It also has big beautiful Hydrangeas and Iris's in the front yard!
I feel like I got everything on my wish list in a home! God is so good! It doesn't have a shop, but my husband is going to build one. The kitchen is not my style and there will be no budget for awhile to remodel it, but I think I can tweak it to be cozy and comfy for us for now. I cannot wait to get in there, but you know what....
....I'm going to miss this old yellow house. :( I am so emotional about it. I don't think we have buyers remorse, but we have a little bit of seller's remorse. This old house was so good to us. We raised our four sons here, we had many parties and gatherings, wedding showers, baby showers and we celebrated many holidays here. We had so many wonderful family dinners. We also had family arguments, sickness, sadness here, but mostly happy things. This is a happy house and it will be dearly missed.
God has been so good to us the past 19 years while we were in this home, it will be exciting to see what God has in store for us at our new place.  

"Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them." Mark 11:24

Just had to share.....

I'm still on my blogging break, but I just had to share this beautiful picture that my son took of his wife at 14 weeks of pregnancy. I love this so much, it makes me tear up. I'm so thankful for Mackenzie and for Brittany and for their marriage and for this new life. God is so good!

I've got some big exciting things coming up that could be life changing. I'm praying for God's will, guidance and direction.

I hope all of you are doing very well and experiencing God's peace, joy and love.

"Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace at all times in every way. The Lord be with you all." II Thessalonians 3:16

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7

Hugs, Sharon
