Happy Anniversary Camper Living!
We all realized tonight that it was 1 year ago today that we set off on our great adventure. I wouldn't trade it for the world! What an amazing experience we've had this past year. I was telling someone recently that the last house we were house sitting at was so big I was actually missing the kids by the time we moved back into the camper! (My friend said I was sick). :-) It's just that it is so easy for all of us to get wrapped up in our own little worlds that we miss each other, literally and figuratively. We all frequently talk about the fun times we've had over this past years' adventure, and while we didn't get to all the places we had planned, we still were able to do and see a ton of stuff! Nathan and I were just talking today about how amazing it was to see Niagara Falls! Yes, I feel very blessed and full to be able to experience all we have. And while I feel that way, there is a part of me that still feels a tad cheated, because we never were able to finish the trip. We're talking about maybe being able to take the 'rest of the trip' next summer, Lord willing. We'll see. For now, we're where the Lord wants us. We've been working with a local church frequently over the summer, and starting tomorrow it will be more official and consistent. Please pray that we will be truly God's provision for hurting individuals and families in this church. This past week I've been working systematically at gathering all the paperwork our mortgage consultant wanted from us - I feel like I've been working on a term paper! So today I dropped everything they asked for by their office in Tampa. We believe we gave her everything she asked for, so I know I have the expectation that we'll be approved like tomorrow! But Tim is cautioning me that we may still need to provide more, and I need to prepare myself to not be incredibly disappointed if that is the case. So, that's where we stand. I believe the Lord's timing will be perfect, since we put the proceeds from the sale of our house last year into a 1 year CD that matures towards the end of September, which will probably be just about the time we'll need it! Thanks again for everyone's prayers and encouragement over this past year - they have meant SO much to us! Blessings to all! :-)

Well, happy anniversary! Personally, I'm glad you're "home", (selfish). I know you are just where you are meant to be. Whether it be next year or the following, God will provide the direction for you to resume your trip. Sounds like the church is calling you. The puzzle pieces always fit together just as He has planned. Be well, be strong, be blessed.
