That's the way God works.

We are on the move again... To cut back on expenses we are moving on Saturday. Joe and I looked at several houses and I was well... depressed. I love our home and the ones that were in our price range were small with nothing special.  I was in tears. That night we involved God. "God where to you want us?" In Bellingham, out of town, please open up doors where you want us to go!   Then we looked again at what was available in the kids school district deciding it was best for all of us to try and stay in Bellingham. And as God would have it there was a charming "Lake House" right on the bank of Lake Louise available March 1st. God is awesome. The boys can walk right out the back door and fish. I can sit on the deck and listen to the ducks and frogs. Ohh how I have missed the croaking. What we are going to sacrifice in size we will gain in beauty.   Here is my plea: If anyone is available to help us move on Saturday we would be forever indebted to you!!!! We don't have a lot of help lined up and it would be such a blessing to have a few extra hands. We are going to have everything boxed up so the plan is to "simply" pick them up drive them over the the new house and set them down. We have a couple of tricky things like the rabbit hutch and a heavy dresser. The rest of the stuff should be fairly easy. :) Let me know if you could help, we will provide the pizza, candy, and I am certainly taking requests just to get you over here! Don't plan on spending the day here by any means, even an hour would be so helpful!

Just Slashin'

I posted a couple back that we were cutting and slashing- Now we are just slashing. 

                                  EE vs. Pocket Knife = trip to doc for stitches   

Remarkably our first time. 

Dr. Herdman was out so we got this completely lovely person, does anyone know her name? She was amazing. 
When the doctor attempted to give the shot in the cut to numb it, E freaked out... I looked over and the other nurse was holding Isabelle- she was sobbing. Not the nurse, but Bellie. Her little compassionate heart could not take it. She was better once I let her stand by his side. So cute. 
All better. 
"Mom, I think I'm going to live!" It was nice when he got his smile back...

Cuttin' and Slashin'

Cut that, scrap that, is the way it goes around our house. If we don't need it and it costs money... It's out. That is the way it went this week with our home phone and extended cable package. Good bye Food Network and Cartoon Network, it's been fun.  SSoooo... if you have reached frustration wondering why you can't get through, that my friends is the reason. So Please, for any reason at all or just to Say Hello, by all means call me on my cell phone. I hesitate to post that number because you never know what crazy folk there are out there on the good ol' world wide web. If you want or need my cell number just send an email and I will get it to you!
Because I don't have a cute or clever picture of the phone being disconnected by Comcast guy with the butt crack,  here is a cute of one yip and yap, 3 and 5.  For fun and cheap entertainment I am constructing a photo book from My Publisher, one book for every year. I am back to 2005. What memories I have come across! This was a couple of months after we moved into the cabin in the woods on our own. Wow, they were little.

From Joe's Sister Sonja, Thanks for praying...

Rejoice, Rejoice and again I say Rejoice!

Matt 8:13

And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way and as thou hast believed
so be it done unto thee and his servant was healed in the same hour.

Psalm 30:2

O Lord My God, I cried unto thee and thou hast healed me!

Please rejoice with us and give God the PRAISE & GLORY he is so due!

My mom had an appointment at the hospital yesterday morning 7am for
a PET scan where they put radioactive die into her veins and performed a full body scan. We we're not aware that a lung cancer diagnosis usually means cancer in the heart, brain, liver and lungs. If the procedure was HOT it meant cancer - if cold it meant NO cancer.

We didn't expect the results until Feb 9th-

She had an appointment with her internist at 3:30 yesterday afternoon to
listen to hear lungs for congestion.

The front desk nurse went on line to check the PET Scan results and her long time Doctor who had actually given her the initial diagnosis was able to deliver the PET results. Per her Doctor- 9 out of 10 patients receive positive results.

1.7% COLD which = 100% healed in the name of JESUS... NO CANCER!

She cried with JOY!

Jesus... The name above all names he is glorious and to be praised.. forever and ever AMEN!

Thank you for your prayers and JESUS thank you for the answers!

Terry, Sonja and Justin Stevenson
