Found It!

We finally found a place to live. It is a 2,800 square foot old farmhouse on 25acres just 10 minutes from town. We were able to negotiate for a month to month rental and can even bring our bees, bunnies and cats!

I met this amazing woman named Janet a few months ago. Our paths have crossed numerous time without even knowing we shared many of the same friends. Our daughters hit it off wonderfully and her boys share many common interests with my boys! Janet remembered I was moving and called me to come get all her In-Law's boxes, they just moved here. That ended my scavenger hunt for boxes!
Then she remembered that I was looking for a rental and getting desperate. She heard of a place that was for rent and had not even been advertised yet. We were able to meet up with the landlords, sign a lease make a deposit and get keys! Just 6 days to spare.
Yesterday we decided to get a moving truck and move what we could. I was anxious and overwhelmed when I got a call from a friend that I probably have not talked to in a year (only because life gets busy).
Karen called to ask a question about bees and I was crying so hard I could hardly talk. When she found out what was wrong she arranged for some massive man power, then brought dinner as well.
I am so humbled how God chooses to provide for us and care for us. I don't deserve all I have and yet He continues to give me more.
I know He will give me the strength I need to make it through the next 5 days.

I've been thinking about you! I hope the quiet blog just means you are busy unpacking and settling in to a cozy home. Happy Summer to you all!

Oh! why are you moving?? I'm praising the LORD for your seemingly wonderful place! I've been praying for a place just like that for quite a while now. =)
