Update

Our life continues to be hectic and crazy. Since my last update we have travelled to Texas to celebrate Christmas with my parents and grandpa. We had a wonderful time with them relaxing and being together. I felt especially grateful this year to be able to spend time with my grandpa. This year he moved to Texas to live with my parents so I get the privilege of seeing him much more often. (Several time a year as opposed to once every few years.) After we left there we drove to Memphis to spend a week with Mark. While I was there I was able to find a house that we love but I will give all those details once I know that everything is going to work out. Last week we drove home and Mark turned around 27 hours later and drove back to Memphis so he could be to work on Monday. I spent the week getting paper work in line for an offer on our house. We are so excited that God is selling our house for us without a realtor and only weeks after putting the sign in our yard. We are waiting now for the last few things to come together on this end and then we will be making aggressive strides toward moving to Memphis. Pray with us that the couple who made the offer will be able to get their loan approval and that the inspection will come through as satisfactory. Also pray that it might happen quickly so we can get back together as a family as soon as possible. It just breaks our hearts every time Andrew cries because daddy is leaving us for the week. God is working this out according to His plan and for our good. So in Him we trust.

"For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith -- that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breath and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen"
--Ephesians 3:14-21

What a blessing to get an offer so quickly! I prayed this morning that all would work out quickly so your family can be together all the time again.
We need to try to get together before you move!
