When God Moves . . .

. . . He really takes off! This past week has been a whirlwind! As of Friday our house is under contract. Wow! After 10 days on the market, we had competing offers and ended up getting full asking price for our house, minus about $425 for a home warranty the buyers requested and a few appliances we were more than happy to throw in (new stuff for us!). If you listen to anyone talk about the real estate market today, you know selling a house in 10 days in no small feat. However, my prayer was, "God, I know you are bigger and badder than a bad real estate market, so just show us what You can do." Man, did He ever!

That's not where the fun stops. After striking out on finding a job in almost every district close to Lancaster County (I started looking at the wrong time of the year), I finally have an interview this Friday. I will probably have a bit of a drive to work each day, although no more than I currently drive now to Pickens County, but the bonus is I will only have a 4-day work week! I will have Fridays off and have a little bit of extra time with Jason (who gets Fridays off at his new church!) and Camryn.

Still not done! I have been very concerned about finding a daycare for Camryn. In any daycare in Anderson (and pretty much anywhere, I'm sure), you cannot just waltz in and expect your child to start within a few weeks. Usually, you are on a waiting list ... for a long time! Someone recommended a Christian school to me in Lancaster and told me they started with a 3 year old program. Camryn won't be 3 until February, but on a whim, I called just to ask about their program. Lo and behold, they will begin a 2 year old program in August! It sounds amazing - the class size is 8 students per classroom, they are an actual school and not a daycare, so they will begin teaching her letters, sounds, numbers, how to write her name, etc., AND the tuition is less than we are currently paying! Sounds too good to be true, huh? We are still praying and discussing whether this will be the right place for us (there are other factors we need to consider), but the fact we even have an option is amazing to me!

Thank you, God, for watching over us, taking care of us, and giving us everything we need right when we need it if we just put our trust in You!!!

I was telling my mom all about this while we were at the beach and we decided that you and Jason need to go on tour telling your story. There would be a huge wave of revival!
