I fought God....

....and God won. As many of you know, I really did fight God (and my husband) on this move. I just couldn't see how this could possibly be a good idea. I doubted. I was angry. I cried. A lot. I prayed that hubby would change his mind. But in the end, we still moved. I'm happy to report that I have survived the first week. It's been pretty good. Of course, like I mentioned before, I am still so busy unpacking that I haven't really had time to feel sorry for myself. I do feel like God is looking after me, though.

See, just look at the view He provided again from the back yard. One of the boys came running in last night - "Mommy, bring your camera - quick!" So glad I did.

I've still been enjoying my coffee on the front porch each morning. There is a little family of rabbits in the front yard that I sit and watch. I also saw a pair of cardinals this morning.
I still don't have much for inside pictures to show you. Still way too many boxes. My parents are coming tomorrow so hopefully mom and I will get some decorating done while they are here. The above picture is another one of the porch. I'm going to keep bug spray, etc. in the cabinet so it is always handy.

I know you are all sitting on the edge of your seat waiting to read about the guests in the bathroom(that I mentioned in the previous post). You are thinking spiders, mice or some other creepy crawlies. Nope. People. Seven of them. Four of our family and three neighbors. A neighbor lady and her two teenage sons stopped by the other evening. We joked that our boys were just getting ready to go swimming. We thought we should explain, so we took them into the master bathroom.

This room is huge. It is like 14x14. The kids' bedrooms aren't even that big. See that tub? Huge. It is about 5 foot long and 2 foot deep. I don't think I will be able to clean it without falling in head first. So, back to the guests. We took them in to the master bathroom and we all stood there visiting for several minutes. Pretty soon I thought, "This is a bit strange." Oh, well.

And here is a picture of P. swimming. Won't be able to do that very often. Takes a lot of water to fill a tub that big!

The internet has been a bit of a fiasco, but we are finally back online. I had over 200 emails to go through and 265 posts on Google Reader. Wow! If you have emailed me recently I will try to get back to you soon. It might take me a bit to get caught up.

There is still much more I want to blog about, but I better save it for another night.

{No doubt about it! God is good— good to good people, good to the good-hearted. But I nearly missed it, missed seeing his goodness. I was looking the other way.... Psalm 73:1-3a}

So glad God won! It is always in our best interest. Glad to see you back on line. Think the boys will need the bug spray to keep ants, chiggers, and mosquitos off. Can't wait to see your huge bathroom, and of course, other pictures of your house.

Glad to hear you'll have some company! I'll bet they'll love your view from the porch!
