Spring is here....?

Spring is here - at least as far as the animals are concerned. Our fist lamb of the season was born today! Jedda is the proud mommy. Stay tuned for more "additions" as we have many animals due this year.

West Linn here we come.....!!

Praise the Lord!! We are SO thankful for His provision of a wonderful house & property for us!! The house is 4 bedrooms, office, bonus room, 3 bathrooms, 3300 square feet, garage & barn, on 7 acres of pasture & trees. We also are signing a 2 year lease!!! It’s in West Linn, and a 30 minute drive from Rick’s school. We are also thankful for the many encouraging words & prayers said for us during our time waiting & seeking the Lord for a home.

I knew in my heart that this was the house He provided as soon as we met the landlord. She actually wanted a LARGE family to rent the house & she WANTED people that had livestock to rent the house. In her mind it was wasted space & land if it wasn't being used!! That's not a "normal" way of thinking. Thank you God!!
During the past week, these are some of the things He has been showing us: He is our rock, fortress, stronghold, refuge. When we are weak, He is strong. He loves us & cares for us & hears the prayers of His saints.

Lord, we thank you for this home and we cannot wait to get settled & start using it for Your glory!
