I have wanted to write about this for sometime but I got a little nervous that it wouldn't happen. But as we are moving along and getting closer I am feeling more at ease. We have a contract on our house!!! We are to close 3 weeks from today. It has been a huge blessing though a huge burden as well. We of course, lost a LOT of money on our house, being as we bought it at the height of the market and sold it at the bottom. Not only that we have to replace almost everything we owned ie furniture, beds etc. The big stuff basically. If I sit and thinking about all the money that is going to be needed to replace them I just want to cry. However, I know that God is bigger than our furniture. If we need to eat picnic style for a year we will make do, if we have to continue to sleep on air mattresses we will make do, if we don't have a couch or other places to sit we will make do. It would be so much easier if we didn't have to buy it all new. The risk of buying something used that has been in a contaminated environment isn't worth the risk to our health. As you know just having our furniture at the other place for 10 months was enough to have lingering health effects on me and the kids. I wish that I had a part time job that could help off set some of the cost as I know J as the provider is feeling it more than me. I just manage the money he has to make it. I did put in an application to sub at the kids' school so we'll see. I still feel like my main job right now is making sure we eat right and completely detox our bodies. God will provide I know he will no matter what.

Amen, amen, amen to your last sentence, friend. Things will work out because of your faith. Hang in there! Look how far you have come already.

Take care!

I am so excited that you have a contract on the house. What an answer to prayer - one of MANY!

First of all, congrats on the contract!

And here, here- to the making sure your family eats healthy! THAT is a full time job, but it's worth a million! Just think of all the money you'll save by avoiding doctor bills and other such things in the future, just by eating healthy! (Better than insurance.)
