Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, unto Him be the glory! Ephesians 3:20-21

Gotta Move (Mercy Me song)

Life is about to get crazy again.   We moved to this cute little house in the East Mountains of New Mexico the 1st of July.  I love this place but it has some major problems.  
One is the septic system - they are about to have to tear it up and put in a new one.   BIG pain for us and our dogs.  Going to cost the owner (we rent) about 30,000  -bummer for them..  Next our water here is hard hard -- the epa guidelines for one of the things tested is it must be below 500ppm  -- Ours is 880ppm...  not safe to drink!   The owner needs to put in a softener  -- 3000.00  --  bummer..  
The landlord didn't act like the owner was going to want to do that.  We have had some problems (big problems) with the landlord.  So we told her maybe we need to move..  She said she thought that would be a good idea!  So we are getting out of our year contract here.
SO NOW we have to find a place that will allow 3 dogs and 2 cats...  and then move AGAIN  soon!!   UGH!!  I just so dread moving again. 
Today I will be out looking for rentals IN town..  we are moving from the mountains :-(  to the busy city.   It's quite a sacrifice for me.  I absolutely love the mountains and the quiet and the birds..  It will be best for my family - as they are all working in the city and have to drive back and forth, a lot.  Also, I will be closer to my mom & dad, my sister and my brothers families.  So it's a mixed blessing. 

We are trying to hear God's voice in all this and so far doors have opened in this direction and so we will continue to go this way.  I am trying to be confident that He already has a place picked out for us that will be just right!
Thanks for your prayers!!

Ahhh...moving!!! I can understand why you'd say ugh! It's a big stress but sounds like it's for the best. I'm sure God has something wonderful for you. But I'm like you, I'd sure miss the mountains. I love living in the country and hope I don't ever have to go back to the city again. LOL
