Dear readers

I apologize for my absence of late. God has been so very good this year! He has been especially delightful in springing surprises up, full of hope and joy – and unexpected time crunch circumstances! When God moves, there’s no doubting it! When He moves me, all I can do is hang on and enjoy the ride! Without exception whenever He has moved us, literally physically relocated us, in the last 20 years, it’s been so fast I could hardly stop to think of it. For which I’m grateful, as if I did I’d likely argue. Or at least belabor with Him all the pluses and negatives of His choices for me.

In such a fashion, a trip to Albuquerque NM to visit my folks for our anniversary turned into a “large finger” coming out of the sky pointing us in that direction. We had no idea. We were forced due to a job loss to leave our beautiful home in Kalispell, MT in 2011 and relocate to our home town of Denver, Co to regain employment. We delighted at the time to obey God, but resisted the place with all we had. We felt strong that this would just be a lay over and kept our eyes upon Him for when He would move us out of the big city again. We hoped with all our hearts to go back to Kalispell, MT where our hearts have called home and had ever since. Much to our surprise when the command came to go south instead of north and NOW, we were stunned. We had just started our own business from home and our plates were full with labor of diligence such an undertaking requires. Needless to say all the major doors flew open and we could not deny God had a route GPS’ed for us. Since the end of October, we have found a house, and are in the final stages of purchasing. We close December 29th. In the last 4 weeks I’ve been back to Albuquerque and Denver and get ready for a business trip the first week of December. I still have to yet pack and line everything up to move! I’m still stunned at the fast forward motion Adonai has us in. It will take Him and nothing short of Him alone for all this to get done. I’m confident He is up to the task. Each day the strength provided is sufficient. No more no less. “It’s such a crazy time of year to try to rush anything,” I tell Him. Holidays, family, trips, and all the “regular” stuff – “why now“? “Just once Lord, I wish you’d move me slowly!”
Lol! Ninety percent of the time that is everyone’s last thought to pray! Even, I, was praying steady for God to please get us out of here quickly (the prayer was in petition for His coming back, but “hey, if Your still a ways off, please just get us out of Denver!“) How quickly the tide changes!

I’ve never been so exhausted in all my years! Yet, miracle of miracles the reign of gratitude in all things proves to be a mighty anchor! What a gift the Spirit has wrought within us! It is Thanksgiving, and we’ve been thanksgiven! Prayers we’ve prayed are being answered (albeit very differently than we had in mind). We have so much to thank Him for, one day a year seems insufficient to celebrate such character development God gives when we obey and thank Him for everything – good and bad, everyday. The Mixmaster of joy and trial brings forth the gold of gladness!

I will resume my normal blogging habits again, dear fellowsheep, I promise. Until then, may I request your prayers for diligence to obey and depend wholly on Him through this move, to trust Him and the process, not the results, and especially to grip the handle bars of gratitude with both hands! I thank Him for each of you, and all your blogs and commitment and love for Him! (Yes, I’m still catching a few here and there)

May God be with you all, this day of Thankfulness, and through the rest of this year. May Grace and Peace follow hard along the path of His character developing within you as you honor and obey Him! May God, Elohim, Yeshua the Messiah, and the faithful Spirit get all the glory! Amen!
