Hi friends.
So glad to have you here for our Friday coffee date.

Let’s pray

dear Heavenly Father, I am in awe of your creation. The sky is filled with so many clouds, each so unique. The ground is covered in so many colors, it’s like we live in one of your finest paintings. Father, we are so thankful for the beautiful summer weather you have provided here in west Michigan. It’s the been so great to enjoy long hours playing outside. Father I come to you begging you for rain waters in Colorado. Father please put out the fires. Protect those who are in danger of losing their homes and wrap your comforting arms around those who already have. Father I am thankful to be your child. Please continue to bless my friends, and please bring the perfect buyer to my home. On Jesus name we pray, amen.

If we were having coffee today we would probably not be in my house. I am trying to be gone as much as possible lately. The less we are home the less mess I need to clean.

If we were having coffee today I would tell you that our house has received a lot of traffic so far. We have had at least 2-3 showings each day. That’s exciting and exhausting. I am not complaining. I am very thankful for the interest.

If we were having coffee I am sure you would ask where we wanted to move to. And I would tell you the same thing we have told everyone else. I have no idea. Really, no idea. I do know we are staying close enough for hubby to drive to work and get to church in a descent time. But other than that we have not felt The Lord has given us any idea on where he wants us. We want to fully trust that he already has a place for us so here we sit and wait.

If we were having coffee I would tell you we recently found of that my husband grandpa has cancer. He has lung and colon cancer. I would tell you I am so sad, so very sad. We love his so much and we would not be where we are without him. I am sad for my children. I am sad they are going o have to say goodbye to someone they are very close to. I would tell you I am not sad that he gets to see grandma Betty again. That he will be reunited with his wife in heaven. That he will dance with Jesus and be at the feed of God. That much I know, and that makes me happy.

Friends I wish we were having coffee together today in real life. I wish we were sitting face to face and I could hear you laugh, see the sadness in your eyes when you share your struggles, that I could hug you, that I could make a silly face , that makes you laugh til you snort. Someday. Someday we will meet regularly in person for our coffee dates.
