When Things Don't Work Out

One of Arden's very favorite books (Good Night, God Bless) has this sentence in it: "Sometimes, when things don't work out the way we planned, God has something better for us."

We're holding on to that right now. The current word is that we have 15 days to leave this house if we don't want an eviction notice on our credit record. The guy who came by yesterday to give us this wonderful news said he may be able to get us 30 days--if so, we'll know today. If not, let the packing begin...

More details to come. I'm going to pound the pavement on a 5-mile run that may help work out some stress.

Stink. I'm so sorry...but I love that quote and hope you'll be able to hold onto it in the next 15-30 days.

We'll be praying for you. Moving in a hurry can be done, but it's not a lot of fun. Just so you know, there are about a million houses for sale in Watertown....but I doubt Ted would like the commute....

I am praying for a very smooth transition, where at the end you will sigh in relief at the Glory of God in His work for your family. Hold fast to your faith.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you! Let us know if there is anything we can do long distance to help.
