Getting Closer

We're getting closer to getting settled at my sister's. (She's doing better, by the way, and we're hoping that she'll be able to come home by Wednesday.)

Rick and Reva have an unused full basement with three bedrooms, family room, full bath and laundry room. There has been a little sprucing up and updating to be done before we can actually move in (post-teenager kinda stuff!). Sunny and I are getting the painting done in the two bedrooms we'll be using, and it looks like we'll be able to be moved in by the weekend. Yay!

We're so grateful for them opening up their home to us. I'm looking forward to spending fun, quality time with my sister and niece that we haven't had because of the distance, as well as Grace getting cousin time with Amber's kiddos.

We spent the day with Sunny's mom. This evening we went out to pick up the flowers from the graves her and Chels had placed out last night. It was neat seeing all the beautiful arrangements folks took the time to place on their loved one's graves. And seeing all the flags on the stones of past veterans including my father-in-law's makes my heart so thankful for the sacrifices our men and women have and are making for us.

It's All I'll Be In Touch Good!


  1. Brenda, I love the reports we often hear of God's goodness and faithfulness to you and your family. I love also the contentment and willingness to bend and move as He says-even literally. As you know, the steps of a righteous man are ordered by the Lord, so enjoy knowing the Lord is in control. It truly is, because He is, all good! Blessings!

  2. I'm glad you're closer to getting settled in at Reva's, and encouraged to hear that she's improving too. Enjoy your time with her and her family. :o)

    Love and hugs,


  3. Oh yeah. What a blessing and how wonderful the Lord had it just sitting there waiting for you!!! I know you & Sunny are going to be as big a blessing to your sister as this is to you guys.

    Can't wait to "hear" from you again. I know you've been busy-busy but you've been much on our minds.

  4. How wonderful that your sister has that much room and is willing to share. Glad to hear that she is doing better too!

  5. So glad all this is working out and you have a great place to stay. I know you'll enjoy being around family again. My girls have never been able to live near cousins and it is sad.


  6. Glad your finally here.
    Mariah is excited to get to have Grace to play with this summer.
    Love you all

  7. Wow Brenda! You all have been through some changes lately. You sound very upbeat and I am so glad! God is good!

    Glad that Reva is better.


  8. I'm so glad that you are moved and that things are going so well for you.

    Lots of love to you and I hope to be back soon.


  9. That's one of the great things about the homes in Colorado...the wonderful walk-out basements. I'm glad you'll be settling in soon. How nice of sis to let you move in!

    Keep us posted.

  10. You seem to be handling the change well....good for you! Thank God for family!

  11. I'm glad to hear that Reva is improving and that you're getting settled in well. I'm keeping you in my prayers and will come back for your updates!


  12. Hey sis,

    Now that I'm home and you are here I am so much better. It's been a long hard road for you and Sunny and Chelsea too so glad we could help and you have already been a huge blessing to me for sure.
    I'm so excited for your new possibilities and I am happy that you are happy.
    Oh, and thanks for doing all the work in the rooms. They are beautiful.
    Love, little big sis

  13. Brenda, after two months of blogging break, I am SO behind...I read this post and the one before it but see that I'll have to scroll back further to get more details...but it sounds like God is leading you in new and always good ways!

  14. Thinking about you Brenda!
