He is always on time..

God's timing is perfect. I am so gratful for all the trials I have went through in the last few weeks. It was a rough journey and I hit pretty low. I clung to God and prayed like crazy. Just when I was about to go through with something I knew he was calling me to do, something I really hated to have to do, he opened a door for us! Can you guess what?
Charlie got the job! We are moving to OKC on the 10th of Sept. I am so excited. I think it will be great for our family. I think it is just what we need to help us to continue to grow. It is going to be hard to leave our church family and friends. The kids are going to miss their granparents also. Luckily it will only be about 3 hours away so we will still be able to come back every once in a while.

This just goes to show that if you follow His will and praise Him in the storm, he does come through.

It is only a test....

Wow, it has been crazy around here the last week or so. Where to even start? At least things are getting a little back to normal around here.

Let see. Last Wednesday night my mom, sister, hubby and I got in an argument over the dogs. They wont keep them out and Charli and I are tired of poop and pee everywhere. We asked them nicely to put them out and leave them out. They refused so we told them they could do as we ask, find new living arangements on their own, or we would make them find other livign arrangemtns. It only got nastier from their until we weren't talkign to each other.
Around 5am Thursday morning my mom came through and was yelling and telling Charlie and I it was our fault and that my sister has tried to commit suicide. She then walked out the door. I got up and called around and no one knew anything yet. About 30 mins later I had Charlie call his mom and she said that everyting was ok and she then told him it was our fault also. Needless to say everyone was against us at that time.
I was so upset that I called my Pastor for guidance( Thank you Dave for waking up early to talk to me). We talked for around an hour and I felt better. My mother in law then called to say that my little sister was transfered to the phsyc ward at a hospital about an hour away.

During that time I did a lot of prayin, talking to the hubby, and talking to the church family. We decided for good that either they needed to get out or my family and I needed to get out. We really hated to be mean and kick my sister and mother out, but it was what was best for our family. Charlie then got some information on a job and we decided to try for that first and see how that would go.

So jump to Tues. and my sister got out of the hospital. During the time between Thur and Tues., my mom and I talked some. We are all getting along, but not really talking more than we have to. It is getting better, but I think there is still some anger between everyone.

Back to the job...Charlie had a phone interview yesterday and they immediatley emailed him for a face to face interview. That will take place Thursday the 26. Please pray thay he gets it. We hate to leave our church family here, but we all think it would be a great oppertunity for our fmaily. It will also give time for wounds to heal.

Well that is an update of what has been going on around here. It has been a wild ride, but I think it has helped me spirtually

August Already?

Boy has the time gone by fast. I can't believe it is already August. Christmas will be here before we know it and then my little guy will be 3 a few weeks later. It saddens me. I wish it would all just slow down.

I am so ready for something to break through. I am ready to be able to shower, do laundry, and cook in my own house. I am ready for healthy, made from scrap meals. I can't wait to have privacy and my own room. I called the Cherokee Nation Housing and they said they were out of money until Oct. The last time we talked to them it was June. It is always some excuse. Even if it is Oct, it will take a few weeks for them to get here and check it all out. Then a few more for them to tell us what they are going to do. So, we are looking at at least Nov. before they even decide. Then it will be snow season so I doubt anything will be done until after Feb.(I highly doubt they will build in the snow) After they begin it will be from 6 months to 2 years. Looking at that time frame, we wont have anything done until about this time next year. I dont think I can make it that long.

Charlie has put in a few applications at places. I am hoping someone takes a bite at him and that will allow us to move. This living here is putting a strain on our marriage and our children need to be able to play and get on a schedule.

Thats about all I have to update on. The kids are getting big. Eli is 2 1/2 and Amelia is almost 1 1/2.

Oh! Also, we may be going to see P.J. Pumphry some time in the neir future. If everything works out. I can't wait!
