Mysterious Ways

God works in mysterious ways. Our first few weeks in London have been hard. Not natural disaster hard or $4 gallon of gas hard, just nothing feels/smells/tastes like home hard. We have both had points when we question everything about this adventure. And just when we find ourselves questioning the most, God, in his infinite wisdom, sends a sign that everything is going to be ok. We can make it in this foreign land and He will provide everything that we need.

Still small voice or smooth salty peanut butter. It is all from the Lord, baby. We were worried we would have to live on some organic-y, oil at the top, non-Americanized peanut butter for a few years. But the Lord provides.

(Note: Andrea would have felt more of the Holy Spirit in JIF, but these are not the days to be picky.)

This is the story of a newlywed-ish couple in Dallas about to pack up their lives and pups to move to jolly ol' England. They will miss good family, good friends and good fajitas.

    He IS Jehovah-Jireh . . . The Lord Will Provide! Remember Pastor Hamilton’s wise words, “because of God’s pre-vision, He makes provision!” WOW! To think that the God of the universe saw your need and provided PEANUT BUTTER!!! What a mighty God we serve!

    So glad you got your stuff! Maybe Dorothy’s words should have been, “There’s no place like home . . . with all my stuff!”

    Have fun nesting! See you real soon!
    Love you!

    Dear Ones,
    Everyone goes through a wilderness experience. Our experience with the lay off years ago taught me so much. No adventure is easy when you go through it, but when you arrive on the other side, what great memories you will have. They say camping is the ultimate adventure because memories through disasters are the funniest later. Life is like a roller coaster, Hang on and try to enjoy the ride!!! WEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

    I should have inserted after the camping statement, “at least you have hot water, a nice comfy bed, secure shelter with your own furnishings and now the ultimate PEANUT BUTTER.
