Here comes the sun....it's all right





I do believe we have found a place to call home.

It's not the prettiest house on the block.
Actually, it's not even a house, per se.
And there are only 3 houses on the block...
so it is definitely out in the boonies a bit.

A single wide with 3 bedrooms
(though one could barely qualify as it is teensy tiny)
2 full baths..
a laundry "room"

And...best of all...
sits on 1 acre...
with a clothesline...
pets are sorta welcome....
and we have free reign as far as putting a garden in.

And...ta da....

It is only 2 blocks down the road from one of my dearest friends, Angie, of Maple Valley Farms fame.

I know....you all must be so jealous!

We will be VERY busy this week as we try to move in using only a large trailer and with pretty much no help as all friends and family are working during the week.

And....woot! woot!
I will be flying out to Montana in 9 days to see our daughter and her family which now includes our precious new grandson, Matthew Jay, born January 26th.

I am blessed.

In Christ alone,
Cindy

PS...please continue to pray that Pete finds some steady work....we will still have to pay rent and utilities.


Pin It!

Oh I am so Happy for you both! See on to a better road. This is good! Blessings to you both and brighter things to come!

Renee said...

So Happy you found something!~and so envious of being that close to Matt and Ang and crew! I often think of you guys and hope things are looking better. Hope your husband is able to find something that fits for a job!

Life can surely throw us some curve balls. I hope this newfound home will bring you the start of some wonderful memories in spite of the heartache and that you will find renewal in all things. The great thing about this life is that new beginnings are possible. I've had a few miracles in my life; starting over has been a long road, but has brought me untold joy in a new direction that I probably would NEVER have gone unless I had been forced. So, hang in there...yes...hanging in there is so important, at least until you feel you can stand on your feet again and look toward the sun. It will get better. I pray for your husband to find something fitting for his condition, etc.

HOORAY!!! I'm glad that you found a place that you can call home!

FlowerLady said...

Even though this is NOT what you had, it is what you are BLESSED with at this time. Home is where your heart is, and God does work all things out. There are lessons to be learned, joys to be had, love to be shared, each and every day.

May work come your DH's way on a regular basis.

Love and hugs to both of you ~ FlowerLady

Sounds like a great place for your nest. Happy Homecoming!

Vickie said...

Good for you, Cindy! Starting over is hard, and I've thought about you so many times over the past few weeks! I know you will make it into HOME in no time. God is good - a new grandbaby to bring you so much joy in the middle of all this trouble! You fix your house, you dig your garden, and work will come for your husband, too. God bless you and congratulations!

Renata said...

You girl, know I am praying. And you musta' keep me up to date on your Montana travels. Congrats to you both on the new addition.

KathyB. said...

We lived in a single-wide for a few years...a very well used one at that. I made it into a very cozy place and have good memories of our time there. I have prayed for you and will continue to do so...

A little bit of sunshine is showing in this post. :)

Angela said...

So happy for you. One acre. That is huge!!! You can do so much there. And yaya for the garden and pets being welcome. Enjoy your family time and get all your baby loving in. That will make you feel so much better. Take care.

First of all that is my favorite Beetles song, and a great motto.

I'm so glad to see things are working out sounds exciting. And I feel for what you are going through. My hubby has been out of work going on three months now.

Enjoy your time with the new grandbaby.

Oh Cindy, I'm just rejoicing for you! I can't even imagine the heartache and just wonderment at your circumstances. Praise the Lord His love is eternal and He always provides. God Bless You Cindy!

Diana@Spain-In-Iowa said...

Cindy, I was looking for an email address, but couldn't seem to find one. I wanted to ask you if you might consider sharing a post on your experiences and living life in it's simplicity for Him. Not understanding His path but having faith in His will. I feel it would be an encouragement to many. Pray about it and let me know. Feel free to contact me at diana@spain-in-iowa.com. If it's too much, I completely understand. Sending you huge hugs!

Keepin' It Simple said...

Dear Cyn~I just wandered over. It's been awhile. My heart just aches for you and Pete. But remember, the home we have here on earth is only temporary. We are on our way to our Eternal home.

I loved your home and all the stories you have shared through the years, but trust in God's providence. He ALWAYS gives us what we need....not necessarily what we want.

I can totally relate to your words about being content with what you have. I have tried, and tried. My heart is restless with my own desires and my own will. Every time it rises up, I offer it into the hands of Our Lord and ask Him to help me want what He wants for me. (There's a great book called Hinds Feet in High Places about this)

You will be in my prayers. Please keep blogging. You may find it is a great outlet, but more importantly friends from across the nation are reachin out to you in prayer...like me.

Miss you. Made some rolls the other night and said a prayer for you. They were a big hit! :-)

Hugs to you and Pete

Peace,
Dee

Ruby Jean said...

Hi Cindy.... This is Angelina .. I am now Blogging at Ruby Jean.. I just saw you over at the PFM blog and her mention that you will be contributing to her magazine... :) I am so excited for you and so happy to get connected with you again... I left a comment over there saying I was the Hockey Toot girl... LOL!! I think I said it wrong just like I did the first time... :) Blessings to you and yours...

Julie said...

Hi Cindy,

I found your blog thru Parisienne Farmgirl today, and I'm sitting here with tears streaming down my face, my heart aching for you, but also feeling very ashamed of myself that I've been griping to God instead of praying to Him these past few months, because I'm having such a hard time finding a job. I'm ashamed at my ingratitude for all that I do have.

I am so sorry about all the troubles that you've been experiencing, but also very happy for you to have found much joy in the midst of it. I will pray for you and your husband that all will improve.

Camille said...

Just stopping by to let you know I am thinking of you and praying for you today my friend.

Blessings,
Camille

I'm so excited that you have a new place :) :) :) How are you settling in? I LOVE that you have all that land that you can use for gardening etc. That will help offset the cost of living expenses as you get it going :) :) How is your new grandson doing? Have a great weekend. Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)
