Cool Weather Is Here--Prayers Are Workin'

November 27, 2012

Autumn is really showin' it's colors here lately. There is a snap in the air each mornin', and leaves are everywhere on the ground, crunchin' under our feet.

The funniest thing to watch are our horses as they enjoy the cooler temperatures. Our stud has been jumpin' and leapin' and whirlin', runnin' from one end of his pasture to the other, and when we walk up to the fence, he takes off towards us at a full tilt boogie, and then throws his feet out in front to slide to a stop right in front of us. His ears are up and he practically VIBRATES, he is so happy in this weather. He wants to be petted, and he thrusts his big head over the fence, demandin' the obligatory nose scratch. The others are runnin' and jumpin' too, and when they finally calm down and rest, they lay on thier chests, snoozin' as their heads softly bob a little with each breath.

I want to say thank you to all of you who are prayin' for our need for a new place to live. Although we haven't found a place yet, it is obvious that our secondary prayer is really bein' answered, since the atmosphere in our little home is changin'. There is a calmer spirit in the air, and we are not as anxious as we had been. We continue to purge and pack (wait, I did this all last year--where did the NEW stuff come from?), and we check out every place that is suggested. We do have a place to go if all else fails, but it will only be temporary and it is a bit far for the Redneck to drive, so I hope we can
avoid that option. However, I am not too proud to take what the Lord provides if that is what we must do. There will plenty of room for our animals, and a house to stay in, but again it would only be temporary.  I keep thinkin' God will move us back to our mountain home, but as of right now we are not gettin' a 'go' for that option. He has other things for us to do here, so we are simply waitin' to hear His voice and follow His lead.

Oh--good news about the family I asked ya'll to pray for a ways back. You may recall that the mother is under attack for keepin' her children away from a sexually abusive father.

I got a call from the mother today, and there has FINALLY been a charge of sexual abuse brought against the man, and hopefully the DA will follow through and take this to trial, so that the father will not only be kept away from his own and other children, but also that the rest of the family can go on with their lives and begin to heal. please continue to pray for this family as this case develops.

Well, I got chores. Later ya'll.
