Where’s Judy? Haven’t heard from her lately.

JudySquier_Blog_2-9-16Here I sit, afraid to open my eyes and behold my treasures in bins on shelves in three different storage units. Imagine all the calories David burned creating this organizational wonder, then lugging every box and bin to its temporary home.

This next photo donned the cover of our 2015 Christmas card.

JudySquier_Blog_2-9-16bHere we sit savoring our park-like front yard in Grants Pass, Oregon.
Could it be we will bid Sheep’s Rest farewell in 2016?
Will we move to the house next door to daughter Elizabeth and her hubby and our four grands in Central Point, Oregon?

God knows, but David and Judy gaze out onto the vast unknown asking
“Lord, what do You have planned?”
Will our beloved house sell?
And will we begin a new real estate chapter
next door to four grands and their twenty eight chickens?
We know not what the future holds –

Busily we work toward the relocation goal –
minimizing, packing
staging our home, then putting it on the market.

And as we work and as we wonder, we are assured of a good outcome because
We know Who holds the future.

God’s got it all figured out. He has scheduled each day of our lives.
Plus He’s the supplier of the energy needed to reach the goal ahead of us.
And the topper: He already has the new house in escrow with the contingency
that we sell our present home.

As we work, as we wonder, as we await His outcome, we’re clinging to Jeremiah 29:11.
May this promise steady any quaking knees – yours as well as ours, as we venture into
God’s gift of another year.

“I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord,
“plans to prosper you, not to harm you – with a future
and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11

    Did you get rid of anything? 3 STORAGE SHEDS?? OUCH! I knew David was an angel, but WOW! I hope and pray the house sells soon and you downsize even more. I think of you every time I take a picture of something, then give it to a new home.
    love and miss you!

    Your sister in Christ,
    Cherree

    Our family’s life verse! Thanks for sharing! I know those boxes. We got rid of so much after 39 years in one house…More than half our house was,donated, given, put out on the curb or went into storage before staging and sale. Then more,boxes were packed for the move! I swore I wouldn’t, but I still have boxes in the garage!

    Prayers for you as you are preparing to follow Gods urging.. As usual! Richest blessing in your new home. Oh- Marie said “no worries. Just say hi to her”.

    Love,
    Joanne
