Updates on the life and times of Sari (the second)

Well, you know that I have not been here because my computer is in the shop.
I am at Mom's taking care of details for our next conference which will start on the 27th of this month. All of our boxes are ready to go and that helps me breath just a tad easier.
Now for the important stuff. ;)
We are going!
Yes, we are closing our bank accounts and all of Keith's business stuff.
Next Wednesday is the big day.
God said GO......and so we are going to do it.
We are packing up the camper and we have found a camp site in Maggie Valley. If I am going to be in a camper for awhile...it might as well be in a beautiful setting.
The camp ground sounds great and I am looking forward to spending some time with God sitting by the creek where our camper will be parked.

Hopefully my computer will get in before we leave.
God knows.
I miss all of you so much and can't wait to be back on line full time....the campsite has wi-fi!!!!!

So please pray for us next Wednesday as Keith pulls the camper with his truck and as I pull a trailer with my truck. We want to thank God in advance for safety for our vehicles and the for the things we will be hauling.
Oh and we thank God for the safety of all those vehicles around us. ;)

I am excited!
And a little sad as I say goodbye to family and friends.
I have lived here since I was 13.....it has been a great place to live.
Last night I had coffee with three women that have come to mean a lot to me.
I guess it really hit me that this time was coming to an end.
Don't even get me started on leaving my Son, Mom and Dad and Sister.
Goodness.
But we will be obedient and He has such great things in store for us.

I will talk to you all soon........from the mountains!
Love you!

NORTH CAROLINA OR BUST!!!!!

This is Sari........signing off!

Sharon (aka...Sari):

I will be thinking about you and your wagon train headed my way next week. I know there must be uncertainty in your heart, along with a sense of expectancy and excitement.

God goes with you, dear one. I believe that he has got something wild and wonderful for you and your family here.

peace~elaine

I will definitely pray for the safety of those around Sari and her trailer! just kidding. Will pray for you on your new endeavour. I have moved away from my childhood home before and though leaving behind family was hard, it was exciting to make a new life with my little family.

I'm thinking of the Michael W. Smith song "Friends"...Friends are friends forever, if the Lord's the Lord of them, ... a chapter in your life is through... ((( hugs ))) Hope you have some down time, spending time in the Word. Sounds like you're hearing and obeying the Lord speak. Exciting, yet changes nonetheless. Praying for you! D

MelanieJoy said...

Hey Girl.....just thinking of you and wanted to remind you I carry you close in my prayers. I wish things could have worked out for us getting together. I can not wait to see what God has in store.
I love you!

p.s. did you catch anything the otherday?

Edge of Design said...

There have been countless times that the stories of Abram and Sari comforted me when we had no idea where we were going to live or what the area would be like. It helped too when folks would say that the Lord would go before us. It just made all the difference in the world knowing that Jesus already prepared the way for us and all we needed to do was place our trust and faith in Him. I don't know if you saw that WS is not that far for us.

Deb said...

Talk about being outside your comfort zone??!! Actually having adventures with our Lord are comfort because as Edge said He goes before you and He is with you!! How exciting, how Divine:) Your in my prayers and His hands:) Be Happy:)

SunnySusan said...

What an exciting adventure He has you on....and to go to such a beautiful place is an added bonus.
The Lord goes before you and Keith...how is your daughter handling it?? I know mine would say if there is a horse involved it would be ok....
Scary but blessed all at the same time.....prayers and hugs from California

Regina said...

Wow, I just got settled here in TX and came by to check in, and it appear that I have missed a lot in my absence.
Peace, Love & Blessing to you as you move with God!
May the Holy Spirit, lead you, meet you and over take you with blessings!

Mary said...

Sharon,

I agree with Denise... this is quite an adventure. I am keeping you and your family in my prayers. God will be watching over you, my friend.

Love and blessings,
Mary

Denise said...

Oh..... girl how are you and I am always thinking of you and praying that things are peaceful....... God never fails us and sometimes it is a long time between a long cool drink of water..... but it is in the desert that He shows Himself sooooooooooo faithful.... I so look forward to hearing what He is speaking to you.......... but know this.. I am praying......

HUGS
