Things have changed a bit since Nate left this morning. There is now a 16 x 60 foot trailer in our side yard. I've spent all morning supervising (if you can call it that) the move. I kept in prayer for this transport company's safety and smooth transport of this heavy building on wheels. They had a flat on the way to our house, but all is well and safe and sound. I helped haul some cement blocks and made sure the trim was handled carefully...and the copper wire was safely tucked away. I also stopped traffic and talked to the people in their cars as the trailer was being backed into our driveway. I must have walked a half mile up the road slowing down cars so they wouldn't slam into the waiting car line up. Oh. I paid the haulers too. Whew. Glad that is accomplished. Now we must find some land to put this trailer on. We've been looking for a long, long time. We must continue to be diligent in looking and most importantly waiting on the Lord for the right place.
There is still some clean up at the original site and I must decide if I want to go clean it up myself or wait for Nate. Hmmm. Maybe using the pick-up truck (which Nate has at camp) would be a better choice than the back of the van.
So I am here at home working on my to-do list and waiting. Yes there is much to do. I love to write a few "to do" things in my journal everyday. I can look back and see what has been accomplished and checked off. Finished. Unfortunately there are things that never really get finished...like laundry and dishes and feeding the horses, etc. It's on-going and sometimes hard when not feeling well (like having the sore throat that I am battling right now) or when something happens to cut into the daily routine. (Like a trailer being moved), but God gives the strength and the joy of the day. To know that He is walking with me makes anything in life exciting - even the little "to do lists" of life....and even when they don't get done. God knows and He loves me. I can think of all the things that He has accomplished for me...for us.

What a wonderful thing to dwell on. It is the part in life that matters the most.
