Dear God Note 9

 Good morning friends.  I have really missed spending time with all of you.  It has been a while since I have been here, but I woke up this morning and wanted to spend some time with the Lord and with all of you.  We made our move to Florida, which has been crazy and entailed: driving 1 car down here at Thanksgiving, packing over 200 boxes, the movers picking it all up, spending the last Christmas in our home of over 20 years, driving my car down along with the dog and cat, the movers unloading, and so far I have unpacked about 100 boxes.

As you can see the last 2 months have been pretty crazy.  Yesterday, was the first day I took off.  We went to breakfast, walked on the beach, went to the local farmers market, walked the dog. enjoyed cooking (I made mint oreo ice cream, wings, and guacamole), and relaxed.  It was a beautiful, sunny day that was 83 degrees outside.  I am so grateful for what God has provided for my life.  Next Sunday I will go to my new church and hopefully make some new friends.  

I am looking forward to this next chapter in my life.  It has been a little scary at times, leaving family and friends, our home where we raised our children, moving to a place where we really don't know anyone, but I know that God placed me where he wants me to be.  So I am trusting in God, and following his lead.  It's not so scary if I place my trust in God and Jesus, because I know that there is a plan, I just can't see it.  My prayers are that he uses me to the fullest, and helps me to grow more in my faith.

I woke up this morning and heard it pouring rain outside, and I was led to share this verse with all of you.

Have a blessed week.

Then we shall know, if we follow on to know Jehovah. His going out is prepared as the morning; and He shall come to us as the rain, as the latter and former rain to the earth.
Hosea 6:3
