OK- so the blog looks half-done right now... Sorry, I've not taken big enough chunks of time in updating it to complete it yet...
Two sweet things that happened with my oldest child, made my heart sing... In bed on Thursday night, he calls out to me as I'm leaving the room and tells me his heart feels funny (how he refers to being stirred by the Lord sometimes). I tell him to pause, listen to what God is saying, and then we'll pray together about it... He pauses, then says... "I think God is telling me that Daddy got the job." I say 'Wow, honey, that's fabulous. Let's pray and agree that God would do that." We pray, and he falls asleep... Then Friday, we're leaving the house in a complete scramble because of a last minute house showing (and I do mean scramble... I filled the passenger seat of the car with a giant pile of clean laundry, because I didn't have anywhere else to put it!), and we round the corner and park the car while I throw on some make up (again, read 'totally unprepared' to leave the house for a showing... I was in my swimsuit in the backyard with dirty dishes in the sink and laundry going when the phone rang...). My 4 year old looks out the window and sees a rainbow... but it's not a rainbow shape- it's a rainbow cloud! A whole small cloud, lit up like a prism/rainbow! It was sooo beautiful and surprising! My oldest says again- 'Rainbows are signs of God's promises... I think God is telling me for sure that Daddy got this job!" Wow... such faith. :)
A bloggy friend of mine posted this verse today and it rang true with me:
Exodus 14:14 (NIV)
"The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still."
That's pretty much what we've been hearing from the Lord regarding waiting on the job situation for my husband, all summer long...and I'm pleased to announce that last night at 5:05 PM, we received the job offer we were waiting on and we get to stay in our house/school/church/etc! It's amazing, a true blessing, totally a God thing, and was done at 11:59 (figuratively)... We give all the credit to the Lord- and we're going to send some Omaha Steaks to the old college buddy who gave us this lead! AMAZING GOD!
We're praying that my hubby thrives in the new work environment, adapts easily, is a witness in the workplace, and helps this company put out quality engineering for many years. :)
Thanks all for your prayers! God is sooo faithful.
