So much going on

Oh my gosh!!The past few days have been a whirlwind of events.Let`s see,Friday was the ladies retreat with our church.We stayed over night at this beautiful historical mansion,nestled in the mountains of north eastern Pa.This place is just so amazing!! Acers and acres of God`s beauty.I will get pictures posted soon.The guest speaker was very good.Our lesson was about honesty.It was such a blessed time to be in the Word,have time of fellowship,time to pray together....I loved it:)I can`t wait for next year:)
Today was our Ladies bible study an it was another blessed time to pray with one another and for one another and be encouraged with God`s word.After bible study our pastor`s wife (who leads the study) had said that there were some clothes that we could all go through if we wanted to.I have been in need of clothing for a long time now.I walked away with a huge garbage bag full of clothes for my daughter and I!!It was such a blessing and God does always provide:)
Now for some bad news....we had a truck that`s been sitting around for a while,that we wanted to get rid of.It was down town at the garage.The mechanic looked at it fixed some very minor things.It appeared to be fine.Well,we decided to sell it to one of my hubby`s friends.This was something that we had been talking about for months.Well,the time finally came and his friend came by today,gave him a check and drove off.The truck stalled and was over heating so hubby ripped up the check from his friend because he feels bad taking it now.Plus now the house I blogged about a while ago,well it doesn`t look like we are going to get it.It`s taking too long for the deal to actually go through,and we need to get moving,so were looking into other options now.Then,remember about a month ago I blogged about an infection in my 7 year old`s leg?Well I had thought it healed because it wasn`t red anymore.The other day I noticed a lump still there,and sure`s still infected.We really need prayer.We cannot afford to take him to the doctor right now.There are alot of things going on right now that I wish I could share,but my husband has asked me not to,so I need to respect that.I am asking for prayer though,so please just take a few moments right now to just say a quick prayer that things will start to get better for us, and also for healing for my son.I know everything happens for a reason,and I am trusting God.I trust Him with my life and I trust Him with my sons infection,I trust that God will use my husbands injury and all of the trials were facing.I`ve been praying over my son`s leg and I am trying to keep it very clean and checking it constantly.I know God will provide.He healed me,and He will heal my son.He will also use my husbands injury."For I know the plans i have for you,they are to prosper you and not to harm you,to give you hope and a future"I don`t have my Bible here,so if that`s not the exact verse,please correct me:)
I will continue to keep everyone updated on our situation.This blog was created to bring glory to the Lord,so that is the purpose of sharing theses struggles with all of you.I want to share with you how God is bringing us through it all and I know one day we will be shining brightly.Have a blessed night everyone:)

I pray that the Lord will touch your sons leg and heal him of this infection!! I pray that God will use all these things happening in your lives to bring not only honor to him but will touch your husbands heart!! I love Jer.29:11 its one of those verses god has spoken over mine and my husbands lives!! I will pray that god will continue to strengthen your relationship with Him!!

So sorry to hear that things don't appear to be going so well at the moment. I am praying for you and your family and hopefully in the long run you will be able to see blessings which come out of these things. May I also commend you on following your husbands wishes.
Blessings in Christ,

I do know the feeling that somehow it seems the Shepherd isn't going in the right direction and that this couldn't possibly be the right path for me!!!! But you know what???? IT IS!!!!! And He's walking right beside you, whether you feel him there or not. It isn't what we feel, it's what we KNOW to be true. It will all fall into place in God's perfect timing and you will have the home of His choosing. That's what is so great about blogs! We can go back and see all our anxious thoughts, our prayer requests, and all the wonderings that we had and then see how He brought us out into the light to see the wondrous ending.
I'll be praying for you and your daughter and your husband!!!! Meanwhile, look for "souvineers" each day along the journey -- reminders of the way God brought you through it all!!!!

And thank you so much for praying for ME! I'm so humbled by all the outpouring of love and prayers on my behalf! You are such a sweetie!!!!! Cora
