God Will Take Care of You ~ Hymn

God Will Take Care of You

Be not dismayed whate’er betide,
God will take care of you;
Beneath His wings of love abide,
God will take care of you.

Refrain

God will take care of you,
Through every day, over all the way;
He will take care of you,
God will take care of you.

Through days of toil when heart doth fail,
God will take care of you;
When dangers fierce your path assail,
God will take care of you.

Refrain

All you may need He will provide,
God will take care of you;
Nothing you ask will be denied,
God will take care of you.

Refrain

No matter what may be the test,
God will take care of you;
Lean, weary one, upon His breast,
God will take care of you.

God will take care of you,
Through every day, over all the way;
He will take care of you,
God will take care of you.

Words: Civilla D. Martin, 1904.

In Just 27 Days…

…Dear and I have to be out of our home and hand over the keys to a new owner. We received an offer on Monday July 2nd while we were in Eastern Washington. We had some back and forth and received the news on the highway on July 3rd as we drove home that our counter offer was accepted and signed and we were in contract on our home. We praise the Lord that we are finally on to the next stage of our move.

Now we have 27 days to pack up everything minus the 5 days we will be in California for my Pop’s funeral.

Our minds are racing and we are scheduling more containers to be dropped at our home to fill. On the 4th of July, Katie and Andrew came over to help us empty out the attic and start sorting through all that stuff that has been out of sight and out of our minds for years. My car again is full of stuff we were able to say “Let it go” to.

Today our real estate agent is arriving to de-stage our home. Katie will be back to continue our attic box discoveries.

Thank you so much for all of you who have prayed for the sale of our home. Now we need those prayers again for a home to purchase in Northeastern Washington. We will be returning on Friday to Dan, Jamie and Addy’s.

On Saturday we have an appointment to view several homes that are on the market. Hopefully we’ll find one to make an offer on. Remember those 27 days we have minus the 5 days in California? Now we will have to minus out Friday-Sunday as we travel back to Colville to search for our new home. So we have 19 days to pack er up and get outa here. Yikes!

Blogging will be effected for sure. You might not be hearing much from me for a while. I’ll try to pop in here and there. Once we are settled in our new home I’ll be blogging from a very different environment. We are hoping our new home is in an area with good connectivity. But until then…

My heart can sing when I pause to remember
A heartache here is but a stepping stone
Along a path that’s winding always upward
This troubled world is not my final home

But until then my heart will go on singing
Until then with joy I’ll carry on
Until the day my eyes behold my Saviour
Until the day God calls me home

Psalm 19 (ESV)

The Law of the Lord is Perfect

The heavens declare the glory of God,
    and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
Day to day pours out speech,
    and night to night reveals knowledge.
There is no speech, nor are there words,
    whose voice is not heard.
Their voice goes out through all the earth,
    and their words to the end of the world.
In them he has set a tent for the sun,
    which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,
    and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy.
Its rising is from the end of the heavens,
    and its circuit to the end of them,
    and there is nothing hidden from its heat.

The law of the Lord is perfect,
    reviving the soul;
the testimony of the Lord is sure,
    making wise the simple;
the precepts of the Lord are right,
    rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the Lord is pure,
    enlightening the eyes;
the fear of the Lord is clean,
    enduring forever;
the rules of the Lord are true,
    and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold,
    even much fine gold;
sweeter also than honey
    and drippings of the honeycomb.
11 Moreover, by them is your servant warned;
    in keeping them there is great reward.

12 Who can discern his errors?
    Declare me innocent from hidden faults.
13 Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins;
    let them not have dominion over me!
Then I shall be blameless,
    and innocent of great transgression.

14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
    be acceptable in your sight,
    O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.

Summer Escape

We crossed the great divide (The Cascade Mountain Range) and will be spending a few days with our Eastern Washington kids.

It’s hard to come empty handed. Or better put, it’s easy to come with some gifts packed in the car.

I found this little workbench at Goodwill and with my “special discount” it cost me under $6.00.

Rayna is trying to prod me into petting her by putting her paw on my foot. “Come on lady, you’re just sitting there”.

It’s nice to get caught up with this little ones new skills. I’ll be running all weekend and I hope to get some stills of Addy but she’s always on the go. I’ll be one tired Baba at the end of each day.

Happy Weekend and last day of June to you all. Happy Canada Day weekend to our friends in the North!

May the friendship between our two countries last forever.
