A New Hunt
A little over a year ago dear hubby and I joined the rest of our family and moved from California to beautiful Colorado. The reason was simple~the Lord was leading us here. He began to reveal His plan to both of my daughter's and their husbands that this was the place He wanted us. Each couple had been praying about a potential move and where they were to go. Our Father is so faithful, He led each couple separately but undeniably to move to this area of Colorado. So within a few months we had all prepared for the move and made it. There was only one glitch-our home didn't sell due to the poor housing market in Sonoma County. So we leased it to a nice family who absolutely love it. Now that we've been here a year we've decided we really need to purchase a home of our own. We are very hard on homes and with two dogs and having 7 grandkids over, we can be really rough on a house. We did try to buy one house but we came in second; so today we are beginning our search again. It is difficult to find a house that meets all our criteria but with the Lord on our side, nothing is impossible. It's exciting to think about actually painting color on walls as we are so tired of white walls. It's also fun to think about planting....but lest I get ahead of myself I need to take a deep breathe and see what looks feasible. My motto is Trust in Him who is able to do exceedingly and abundantly more than I desire.
I am a daughter of the King, saved by grace for 38 yrs. I am married to my best friend and beloved for 39 years. I was born and lived most of my life in Northern Calif. until moving to Colorado. We homeschooled our girls for years and I love encouraging my daughters and others in their homeschooling. Hubby and I are blessed to have two incredible daughters and sons-in-law and 11 grandkids. I love spending time with my family & our dog Hunter, friends, plus quilting whenever I can.
