This has been an unsettling but fun and interesting year to say the least. Necessity definitely moved us out of our comfort zone.
There's a scripture that says, May the Lord establish the works of our hands (Psalm 90:17). This is exactly what He has done. He has gently guided us and directed our path.
After moving to Colorado Springs last May, our plans were to get our cleaning business to a self-supporting place while Sunny worked at getting his CO real estate license. But the Lord had other plans, by opening up another door. Sunny is now working towards management in our friend's heating and cooling business. He is so excited to be back in the 'trades' and is daily studying and working at getting up to speed with the business. As for the cleaning business, I have kept one client and will do one-time cleanings when needed.
We have had to adjust to our oldest daughter, Chels, moving up near Seattle. We miss her a lot...A LOT. But we're also aware that this is part of life--separation--and we're happy that she is doing well and enjoying herself. Especially happy that she has a job after several months of searching. She is coming home in 13 days for a week! YAY!
We are so grateful for my sister, Reva and her husband, Rick, opening up their home for us while getting established here. I've enjoyed spending time with Reva again after many years of living apart. We've also enjoyed 'getting to know' my niece's family. Grace and her daughter, Mariah, have became quite the little buddies.
There is one thing that has remained constant and helped me through this past year (besides my relationship with God) and that is all of you. I've gotten to know you better through your blogs and made new friends. I know I've been a sporadic poster, given our circumstances, but I have managed to go 'visitin' quite a bit. You all have succeeded in making me laugh, cry, pray, be challenged, and at times I've even come real close to wetting my britches! Thanks for helping make this year of transition easier for me.
Be blessed this new year of 2010. No matter what the economic or political climate we face, we can be sure the the Lord is Faithful and the 'Ever Present Help in time of need'.
It's All Happy New Year Good!
