We had a great day. Relaxing and catching up on family time. (And looking at my Mom and sister and being reminded of my goal to take a little more weight off. My sister has recently lost a good bit of weight. Go Jeannie!)
We got home around three in the afternoon and not soon after got a call from my pastors wife telling us that two of our member had been out for a Sunday afternoon motorbike ride when a car pulled out in front of them and they hit the car. We spent several hours at one hospital and then they transfered Johnny to a larger hospital where the removed his spleen and repaired damage to a lung caused by fractured ribs. He is in ICU but thank the Lord he is doing good. And my other friend went home last night with a fractured finger and quit a bit of road burn. The police said that they should not have made it through the accident. We know who was on their side.
We got home last night around 1:00, or maybe I should say this morning, so Mrs Nufon is a tad tired and thought she would probably need to miss out on seeing ya'll this morning.
To catch you up on other news. It looks like we will be moving 100 yards down the road to a home that is for lease in our neighborhood. I noticed the sign because I pass it everyday on my way in and out of the neighborhood. I thought maybe we could just call and see what they weere asking--it would give us some place to a take my father-in-law until we could get this piece of property sold and find a new house. To make a long story as short as I am capable- by the grace of God the man who remembered my father in law said we could rent the house on a month by month basis until we find something else to buy. He was asking for a full year contract but God softened his heart and he will let us have it as long as we need it. I will sign the papers today and get a key. Then I will have a little cleaning to do because part of the agreement is that I would take it as is. In other words clean up after the last tenants.
It did not look too bad--so we will see.
It does have a in ground pool so it will be nice to have this summer.
I thought I would share this comment from someone on the So You Wanna Go Back post.
It is from a sister in Christ whom I love dearly. She has walked a rough road and God has been faithful. It is good to have her back by my side. You know on this walk we need to surround ourselves by those who believe as we do and those few who really know us. The few who will tell us what we do not want to hear and remind us of what our actions say we have forgotten.
I am going to close with her comment.
Ponder it for a while.
Let it's truth sink deep.
Let it remind you of what we know to be true.
What is faith? Lets ask the ever elusive writer of Hebrews (probably Paul). 11:1 Now faith is being SURE of what we hope for and CERTAIN of what we do not see. I know you know this verse by heart, but have you ever thought about the hope part? Hope is a partner with faith. Without hope there is nothing for faith to give substance to. Just remember, the thing we are "faithing" for is already there, we just can't see it. You are not in the wilderness right now, you are in God's perfect will because you have said yes.....Yes Lord, I will stay still and let you do your will......Yes, I will believe and trust you and am willing to give up anything or go anywhere you say even though my flesh is nervous and screaming for me to take control and fix it. You are overcoming the issue of your "fleshly" control. Oh that we all could learn this important lesson. How can He work through any of us that think we are strong and can handle it and God can just step in when we need a miracle? You have been in the wilderness (as have I) and we both know that we will not go back. You are now in the very place God has always wanted you. Being still, knowing that He is the very God Almighty of the entire universe and that He is at work on your behalf. Just remember, He is not only with, He is also for you!
