Fear not little flock...

For it is your father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom!

GOODBYE TEXAS! We are headed back home on Monday! Quick move, I guess that's how we roll! Sean's parents are so kind to let us store all of our stuff in their garage. We are just bringing our car, clothes and Elly (our dog), who by the way is freaking out, he knows somethings up. We will be living in Chris and Suzie's nest, they have a studio apartment over their garage. I'm very excited!

While I am so excited, I have also be pretty anxious. My head knows and believes that god will provide, but its also constantly figuring what will happen if.... This past year has been very difficult, especially with finances. I'm not really sure how it will be when we get back. Enter anxiety. I was praying this morning that God would give me peace. I began reading good
ol' Luke 12:22.
It kinda kicked my butt.

"Which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to your span of life?"

"Do not seek what you are to eat or drink, nor be worried... YOUR FATHER KNOWS YOU NEED THEM."

"Provide yourself with moneybags that do not grow old... where no thief approaches and no moth destroys...
With treasure in the heavens that does not fail."

Please pray for my heart. I need help driving these truths home! Also please pray for safe travel. We will be stopping in Atlanta to see and old friend in the city and then Kris and Amanda and the boys. We'll get to see Katie and Billie and Sara, too!

Keep your ears open for:

A give away couch (its
ok if it is uggo, I'll throw a slip cover over it)
A REALLY cheep car
Kitchen stuff, pots, baking dishes (I don't need a lot, just enough to get by)

Can't wait to see you all!

*sniff, sniff* I'm going to miss you! I'm excited for you guys and this next step in your journey. For reals, yo. Yeah, thanks for being authentic and sharing what God's doing. He will care for your little flock, yes, even Ellie I suppose. Benadryl or no.

I am so excited to see you soon :)
by the way, we have some couches you could choose from :), but I guess you wouldn't really have room. :/

Love you! Praying for you!

I'll will be praying for you. You been on my mind alot since you sent me that wonderful/sweet/funny note. I actually wrote you back... I'm not sure if I sent it to the right place or if you got it. Anyway, how ironic that I miscarried just a few days after I wrote you. I wish I would've known how you felt at the time... you just can't understand til you go through it.
I understand the pain and jealousy that comes along with news of other pregnancies... the ache to be pregnant again and the worry that it'll happen again.
So I still pray for you and Sean... I understand now. I would love to spend time and talk once you guys are settled in. You guys are welcome to raid our house for stuff you need...
Much love... Can't wait to see you!

Bye, Katie(and Sean)!
It was good to meet you guys and i've really enjoyed your blog. Thanks for being honest and for pressing into trusting the Lord through difficult circumstances. I am excited to watch (from afar) how God will provide for you both in the coming months...He is so faithful.
Love from Frisco!
