We made it! God called us to the Panhandle of Florida, we're here!
1 Oct 2010
After a few trips from Oklahoma City to Montana via United Airlines for a visit to my family. Then from Oklahoma City to Livingston TX to Waco TX back through Steve's ole stomping grounds and a visit with friends to ...Milton FL.
So, we made it! We arrived last Friday afternoon through some torrential rains, couldn't see through the window type rain! Slowed down to about 25 mph and still it was bad! We could see it from a distance but wasn't sure where we would roll into it at! But sure enough, within 2 miles of our destination it was upon us! It has been a whirlwind time of excitement and wonderfulness!
Only God's hand could be upon this move!
We found a home church immediately and were very warmly greeted!
We met up with my dad the day before, on Sat. and the visit was superb!
Monday we headed to the beach and it was fantastic! Steve had never seen blue waters and was blessed beyond to discover God's power in the strength of the waves!
We worked on Tuesday and Wednesday, learning to clean well! We keep thinking, Okay God, is this so we can train others when we have our own church? The pay here is 10 hours each for site per week. It comes out pretty expensive sites when a monthly rate is $460 + electric! We were so exhausted after work on both days, a deep sleep nap was in order!
We attended a Bible study on Wed., it was nice to dig deeper.
On Thursday, we went to the beach again. We stopped along the way and bought a new grill at Camping World and a new Wal-Mart.
The flies at the beach were unbearable! Even with spray they kept coming at you! Not just one or two but swarms of them around your ankles, legs, back, anywhere to draw blood and hurt! They finally succeeded in chasing us off the beach!
And the beach was incredible yesterday, the water was that surreal blue that you only see in pictures! There were a few dolphins out playing and a mantra ray came close to the shoreline, it was picture perfect, except for the flies!
We found out that we have grand-baby #6! on the way! Yeah! We hope that God's move here allows us to stay so we can be around for the kids and grand-kids!
Our site is pretty but no trees because of the last few hurricanes that tore out the trees. The sun rises about 6 a.m. and goes down around 6:30. The planes fly, the birds chirp and the squirrels play, and we take it easy. Until next time, may God bless you in many ways!
