Update post on the last two posts

First---Thank you so much for your prayers for my close friend Tracy.
She is still in the hospital but should go home tomorrow.
The doctors still do not know what is wrong with her.
She so appreciates all of your prayers and I did too.
You are sweet and I thank God for the sweet addition of you to my life.
You fill my heart!
If I find out anything else I'll let you know.

As for our house condition.
As you know our property is on the water. And since at least once a year the river likes to come inside--new homes in our area have to be built up on piers.
Some of ya'll who have been with me since I have started know that we had some major difficulties with an artesian well that we could not cap. It took several months and much emotional pain and stress--and still no solution. Keith did finally get a pipe into what we think is the well and the water has been stopped.
We lived in a camper for 6 months while trying our best to get things moving.
Can you say lack of peace?
This was my life for several months. Then in May it became evident that we needed to take over the care of Keith's 92 year old father. God provided a house down the road from our property and we all moved in. Our property is still sitting and we are going to sell it.
There is no way Paw Paw could handle the stairs and he so loves to go out and walk through the yard several times a day.
After Katrina prices on property went sky high. Does not make sense to me--but it seems to happen after disasters. The prices should drop soon.
Meanwhile we know that we have a certain amount to spend on a house.
I know my God is able.
As soon as we get the property sold we will take that money and put it toward a house.
We don't need anything fancy just enough room for us all with a little property.
God's hand will have to be all over this situation.
He will be the one to provide the house.
Prayers will be appreciated!
Prayer that when my faith is tested--- it will be found true and sound and firm.
This was from my devotion this morning.

"Can you trust Jesus Christ where your common sense cannot trust Him? Can you venture out with courage on the words of Jesus Christ, while the realities of your commonsense life continue to shout, "It's a Lie"?..................................Believe steadfastly on Him and everything that challenges you will strengthen your faith."
Oswald Chambers

My God is bigger than the storm and He is capable when man says NO WAY.
If I look for the small, satan will make sure I find it.
If I expect the big---God will provide it.
I love my God.
He was able to save my soul from hell and build me a mansion in heaven.
I know He can handle a roof over my head while I linger here.
My requests;
two bathrooms, a fireplace(never have had one and I always have wanted one), a nice size kitchen so that I can have guests in there while I am cooking, it would be nice if the kitchen was open to the living room.
Keith would like a little property.

Let's see how our God shows Himself faithful and if He wants to show off a little-----I'll clap and jump up and down. :) After I praise His name of course.

You know I'm in the middle of my Patriarchs study...when I read this it made me think of Gen. 22. When God tested Abraham to sacrifice Isaac...and Abraham called that place The Lord Will Provide. Keep the faith for He will provide.
