Diesel's version of Packing

When left to his own devices...

Were Moving...

And I'm not happy!

Our Current Landlords couldn't keep up with their mortgage payment...even though we have paid them on time, and our rent is more than their mortgage.

We found out about the foreclosure from the mortgage company via mail...they couldn't even call us.

When we approached them on the matter they told us that they were in the process of  a loan modification.

Then a few days later we were told that they had a verbal agreement with the Lender. All was good.

A month or so later...the letters began again...and then we had a visitor who interacted with our neighbors wondering if we were the owners or renters...

Our neighbors are wonderful...they mentioned the conversation with the unknown probably bank guy in passing.  We assumed based on our previous discussions with the Landlords that we would be working with the lender for a move out date, that they were foreclosing, and that we would have a minimum of 90 days to move out per Obama's new laws.

3 days later we got a call...from our landlords...I texted a reply.. "I'm at work I will call when I get home"

Hours later on November 10th we found a note taped to our door. A 30 day notice...were on a month to month lease...

30 Days = December 10

We are angry...we feel wronged...we have to move between Thanksgiving and Christmas....Oh...did I mention that we expecting  35 people this year for Thanksgiving at my parents house and I'm expected to Bake 2 pies and a cake.

We found a place...we fell in love...we put our application in..they choose someone else..

We found another place today...we are in serious like...we put out application in...Pray for us..

Were Packing....and I'm not Happy!!!

Sorry for the negative tone...I know God is in control. I know he something wonderful in mind...I just need to be mad for a while...or at least that's what Ryan says...

The Simple Woman's Daybook - October 25, 2011

FOR TODAY – October 25, 2011

Goosebumps versus Godbumps

1. 3 Ladies in my Bible Study Circle – Are Adoptive Mom’s – Gives me Goosebumps – I love that I have women so close to me that have walked the journey I’m on…but its Bible study..and us Christian folk are called to I find myself wonderfully thankful but not totally surprised.

2. 1 lady in my Bible Study Circle – Was Adopted – Gives me Goosebumps – I love that I have the opportunity to see the blessing that Adoption can be in someone’s life, but again..not totally surprised due to the setting I met her in.

3. Phone Agent making appointments for our Live Scan Fingerprinting first call – Was Adopted 29 years ago – Gives me Godbumps.

4. Talking with Same Phone Agent coincidentally on a Second Call (out of 100 other Reps) - Gives me even bigger Godbumps

How do I define Godbumps – Those rare moments when you get goosebumps and shiver because you knew for a few brief moments that you could see the hand of your creator, and actually feel his warmth.

"Live what you Believe in"

I was reading a favorite blog today, and these words struck my heart "Live what you Believe In"....

They make my heart race, they make me excited. They are a bold command, one that feels Biblically driven, and Humanly Possible.

I pray for signs alot these days. I find myself longing for God to make himself known.

I pray for signs for my friends and loved ones. I ask for things like open doors, and  beautiful sunrises, and gifts of friendship.

I want them to know the God I know, and to feel his peace and comfort during difficult times.

I long for them to feel the hope and encouragement of their creator, to understand that they truly are not alone.
