All is going according to God's plan. As it is with God's timing, I watch as every little step falls into place. We have found a home in Yarra Glen, Victoria, close to where Don will finish his flight training. Don's medical for flying is in the midst of being processed and issued. The car has been serviced and has two new tyres, ready for our long drive. There is a story with this car, it was a gift from God, and I will share that story another time. The sale of of our home is progressing despite the enemy's many attempts to throw a spanner in the works, we are still packing in faith. We have had wonderful friends in our church, rally around us and help us out with the move, offering to look after the boys, giving us financial support and giving us accommodation for our final nights in Pittsworth. It reminds me of those final scenes in the Indiana Jones movie-The Last Crusade, when they have to walk the stepping stones in the right way to make it across the trap. If we view the stepping stones using the right vision-God vision, then we will know the path and the steps are ordered clearly one after another. Each step has it's place in the order and if you try and step outside of that you risk danger. However if we walk on the steps in the correct order, only blessing can come. God is giving us wisdom, please continue to pray for us in that area.
We also had a delightful Saturday afternoon with some of the MAF family in Fernvale over the weekend. There were representatives there from Cairns, Arnhem Land, Gold Coast and all over. We caught up with old friends made new ones, prayed together, ate great food and encouraged on and other in the paths God has us on.
In the midst of of all of this the boys are coping quite well. They have moments when they grow a little sentimental, due to saying good bye to very good friends. But we know we will all see each other again.
During all of these happenings, God is doing something special with Jack's heart. Over the last few days God has been telling Jack, that he needs to treat his Mum like a princess. For the last week he has been telling me how pretty I am, every 5 minute, just in case I forget. (By the way, I'm sure I look adorable when I rise out of bed with pillow wrinkles, messy hair and morning breath-LOL) Then last night he began bringing me presents first my necklace wrapped up in paper and half a ton of sticky tape, then my eyebrow brush wrapped in the same fashion. Finally a paper crown that he had made with the help of his Dad. I saw Jesus in his eyes when he gave them to me. It was more than my little boy appreciating his mummy (and that would be good enough for me). God spoke to my heart and showed me that this is what he was seeing as we went about our busy day to day appointments and routines. This is what he saw when I wake up in the morning, when I am sick, when I am hurting, when I am happy. His view of us does not change. We are his bride, no matter what we look like here on earth, we are covered by his blood, washed whiter than snow and we radiate because we are filled with his light. He sees past the blemishes and personality hang ups and sees us for who we truly are-men and women after his own heart. It does my soul good to know that God loves me like this. I hope you know it too. We must love each other lavishly, just as Jack did, so that the world will see God in us.
Finally. please join us in prayer for Sam's cardiology review on Thursday at 9am. Pray that God will glorify His name.
