Happy New Year!

We haven't posted in over a month - forgive us!  We've been a little busy :)  The move to our new house was a great success thanks to a crew of wonderful friends and family.  We don't recommend moving on New Year's Eve, but all in all, it turned out great.  The crazy weather didn't start until everything was unloaded and we only had to cut the legs off of one piece of furniture.  Thankfully, Tim's sister Sally was able to successfully re-attach them.

We've been here about 2 1/2 weeks so far and things are coming together little by little.  Tim has been amazing and spends every evening getting little projects done and helping me do all the things I am no longer supposed to do.  Like sweeping or vacuuming or lifting anything.  Hm, what does that leave, you ask?  Not much except for cooking.  With the twins coming in a little over a month and my energy dwindling fast, we are motivated to get this place ready!  My mom's group blessed us with a work day today and let me say that 5 ladies on a mission (plus me and 3 little ones) is a force to be reckoned with.

To say we are thankful or that we feel greatly blessed of the Lord doesn't even come close to truly expressing our emotions over having a place to call our very own again.  Maybe saying that we are completely overwhelmed with the goodness of God's plan for us comes a little closer to the truth, but it still doesn't really cut it.  God has been good to us, He is showing us His faithful hand of provision day by day and we are working hard not to miss it.

The theme at our church for last year was restoration.  It brings a smile to my face and renewed faith to my soul as I consider that we moved into our new home on the very last day of 2010.

God is always good and God is never late.
