We've been spending the past few days
getting familiar with our new home area surroundings.
I confess that moving to the city was not as appealing
as living a simple, country life
but, thankfully, HIS ways are not our ways. ;o)
And over the years, HE has taught me,
how to be content and make the best
out of where HE allows me to be.
It is an ongoing process but it does get easier
as I trust in HIM.
In addition, HE has shown me how HIS beautiful handiwork
is, truly, everywhere... as HE is everywhere.
And HE is continually opening my eyes,
as I look upon this great field of souls
needing to know the One True Saviour!
I am thankful where HE has brought us.
We've enjoyed seeing the beauty of our new city
as we've driven around the area...
A view of the great city overlooking the ocean
The beach at the Pacific Ocean
The bridge connecting the island and city
Mountain view as we head inland
The view at our campground
Over the weekend we enjoyed getting lost in our new big city,
looking at the local area, viewing potential houses,
and finding a new home church.
We have liked what we've seen in the area,
the weather is gorgeous, we found a home
that we are praying about, and the LORD
led us to a lovely group of fellow believers
that we spent all day Sunday with.
We are praying HIS will in all situations,
that HE will give us wisdom and guide us.
On Tuesday, we filled out an application for the house we like
and in the afternoon we enjoyed playing at the playground
at the campground we are staying at.
The children enjoyed playing on the slides, swings,
and playing tag with Daddy.
Ally and I enjoyed the beautiful view and wildlife,
watching the ducks and various birds that we need to identify.
Suzie, too, enjoyed the ducks... chasing them!
She even jumped into the lake after them.
She learned, then, that she could, indeed, doggie paddle. ;o)
We look forward to what the LORD has in store for us here,
knowing that we are in HIS will
and that HE has brought us here for HIS purpose.
What a wonderful Jehovah we serve!
"Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods?
who is like thee, glorious in holiness,
fearful in praises, doing wonders?"
