Thank you all for your prayers, kind words, and good wishes since I my husband passed. The Lord has given me super-abundant consolations, both temporal and spiritual. I feel the strength of your love and prayers. It has been a bit of a wild ride lately. Since the death of my husband barely a month ago, I have moved to a new city to be nearer to family and have helped my sister to move my 92 year old father to an extended care facility. God has been with me and mine every step of the way.
After a great deal of prayer and consultation with others (including my spiritual director and my realtor who both said, “Go!”) I felt I had the green light to move BEFORE my house was sold. I was going to be renting anyway. Finances would be a bit tight but it was doable. I felt the Lord wished me to trust him on this. So I went forward in faith.
The movers were still loading the truck when my realtor called and said he had an offer on my house! It was a decent offer with only one easily surmountable condition. I am confident the deal will go through. That was yesterday. I am still pinching myself. It feels like a dream.
The the good Lord gives, even as he takes away. Blessed be the name of the Lord, now and forever!
