Psalm 34:19

I feel the need to be with the Lord. In other words I feel I am being drawn near to him in times of trouble. I see my self in his hands and Him looking down at me with a sad smile. Saying to me this will pass and times will get better. I can hear my Father God say to me “ Its going to be all right my child”.
Let me explain.... The couple that is buying our home in Schulenburg are going trough some hard and scary times. You see... When this young men arrived at work this morning the door to his employer was locked. Yes locked. Along with 99 other workers were locked out of a failed business 8 days before Christmas this business closed their doors with no notice to any one not even their employees. This is a fear of thousands of Americans these days. We all have cut back on spending and have done with out some of the things we use to take for granted. I've been out of Conditioner for a month because it keeps getting pushed to the bottom of the shopping list. But I am so glad that both me and my husband have jobs. No not all the bills are getting payed now a days, but we still share a good meal together with our boys every night. The sell of our home will change things for us... We have lots of plans for some of the money. We are going to pay off some of the bills and save some for our future, pay our Sons school tuition for the next 2 years, help one Son go to college, help the older Son buy a used car for his little family. Our youngest son is going on a mission trip in March to the Dominican that we want to be able to contribute to. There are a lot of other small things we are wanting as will. This all sounds so superficial but there are things that we have held back on because of the economy.
We have a appointment to sign on the closing of the sale of our home tomorrow. I cant imagine what the buyer must be going though at this time. This is probably the biggest step they'll make in their lives.
Donnie and I where even younger than this couple when we bought this place in 1983. I was 20 and Donnie was 23. It was a very scary time 1983. The interest rate was 12 percent and the economy was bad. The Oil boomb was failing and lay offs where high. Not to mention I was pregnant and Donnie was just starting a new business. We bought it any way and have never regretted it. I can only hope that this couple has as many beautiful and happy years in Schulenburg as we have had. How do we get though all this stress? God. In Psalm 34:19 A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all: ( that means you and me) He protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken. Evil will slay the wicked; the foes of the righteous will be condemned. The Lord redeems his servants;no one will be condemned who takes refuge in Him.
This is way I seek refuge in His hands.

Aaron enjoyed some relaxing fishing
He was trying to get as much out of the tripe as possible...sooo he didn't want to waste any time fishing around for the bate... He just held the shrimp in his mouth for the next time a big one got away.

Some of his fish where as small as his bate

Donnie and I combed the beach for treasures
A Little more fishing befor the sun goes down
