Extravagant Gratefulness...

I can not thank you all enough for your heartfelt comments. 
It is truly so difficult to express how wonderful you have all made me feel!
My soul is overflowing with your encouraging, inspiring and supportive words and thoughts. 
I had thought for awhile whether or not to post what was going on with us..and I am so glad I did. 
During these days that seem overloaded with physical labor and  emotional trials...
knowing that so many special people are lifting us up in prayer is just what we need to get us through!  Hearing the stories of others struggles reminds us that we are not alone and helps us to put in all in perspective! 
Thank you, thank you, thank you...from the very bottom of my heart. 
I love you all very much!

The packing is moving along...the big garage sale was this past weekend...
...and we continue to move forward!

One of my favorite quotes on a Mary Engelbright print was a little homeless girl saying, Oh, we have a home. We just need a house to put it in. Your family is your home. All will be well. **blows kisses** and little reminders of God's promise.
Love, Deb

Hi Carry,
I just read about what you and your husband are going through and know that I am praying for you. It is great to see that even with all the troubles you are being brave and moving forward no matter how hard. I admire you for that.
Keep you chin up, girl. Be sure better things will come your way.
Many hugs,
xx

You make your home- your home doesnt make you-and im sure you will find a better home down the road-and it will all make sense why this happened-

Ohhh, bless your heart. It was good for you to realize that you are in good company when it comes to the misfortunes of our current economy. But you've handled it with grace and faith. You will be in my prayers.

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

dearest carrie,

i stopped by to catch up on your posts and am so shocked to hear that you are moving.

your attitude is refreshing! God doesn't want us to focus on material things. He wants us to focus on Him. trust in Him and he will help those who help themselves.

life isn't about what we have, but who we love. i am so happy that you have God in your life to recognize that opportunities and changes are often for the better. i like to say when one door shuts, another opens.

wish i could be there to help you..or at least give you a hug.

xoxo

Well I know we are all going to be looking forward to you sharing with us pictures of your "New" Cottage and cannot wait to see how you make that your loving home. Hang in there I just know you are going to like your New Home! It is probably the same sq ft 1400 as mine. You will get use to it. A lot less to clean (: ox, Diane
