House Update


My parents have decided to take their house off the market.

Apparantly while I was out shopping with my sister on Saturday, my mom had some sort of Nuclear Melt Down. The realtor had sent her an email with feedback from the young couple who had seen our house recently. They liked the house but complained that the master bath was "dated" and there was no granite countertops in the kitchen. I'm sure they have just watched one too many HGTV shows, but it really pissed my mother off. "I don't want people trapsing through MY house telling me my bathroom is dated! I KNOW it is dated! There is nothing I can do about that right now! WELL I have HAD IT, I don't have to sell my house right now" she explained.

My first reaction was to praise the Lord for His amazing timing in having me out of the house when said Nuclear Melt Down was taking place or my newly realized philosophy of non-resistance to evil might have gone completely out the window. My patience, long-suffering and tolerance level of adult-onset tantrum throwing has really been reached.

Then I thanked Him again for the confirmation that the door is really closing for me here as it is opening in Wyoming. Before, I was concerned that if I left for Wyoming and then my parents sold their house, I would need to come back to help them move. Now, thankfully, I can look forward to Wyoming without having to think of coming back anytime soon.

Thank you Lord.

Blessings in Christ

God is good! God is good! God is good! That is all I can say right now, he is Good and on time!

Glory to our God who is in FULL CONTROL OF ALL THINGS!

I know what you are talking about and where you are coming from Sis, I know I know I know.

Thank God for ordering our every step.

I am going to go now, I will be back online maybe tomorrow or the next day.

This is a blessing in disguise to not have internet at home right now. God has been using this time to deal with me, talk to me, and make some things PLAIN in my life as I need them to be made plain as well.

Love ya sis!

Thank you Linda! Thank you Sis! It is amazing, I was fine up until today for some reason though, I mean I am going through as you are, but I was at peace to a certain degree.

Then, all of a sudden I was overcome with this serious despair a few hours ago.

I get a HUGE surprise though when I come back from the library, all of a sudden the internet is working.

I had never been able to pick up 'wireless'signal before, but now a signal that says 'very low' is open and working as if it is 'very high'. LOL!

So, my laptop is working off of someone else signal around here. I remember saying earlier today as I was coming back from library, "It is just impossible to pick up a signal because they all are secure".

lol!

God has a sense of humor. Perhaps he wanted to see if I would be content without the internet for a while. ( Which I was )..and to remind me he is still in control.

So, as of now I have the internet again.

Sis, thanks for praying for me, I NEED it. We all do..

love ya,

Alicia

love you too! Glad you are back online. I am reading "The Kingdom of God is Within you" from Leo Tolstoy. Have you read it? Fascinating! Just what I need to read right now. Too bad he lived in the 1880's I'd really like to talk to him.

anyway hang in there!
