In the process...


This is the house that we are in the process of buying.  This Wednesday is the home inspection.  I feel peace about this house.  Remember Mesa View Manor and how that deal fell through?  I never felt peace about that house.  After we signed the contract I had a terrible feeling that I had done something wrong.  Horrible, but the Lord was there and helped us get back on track.

 This is the view from the backyard.

We have been trying and trying to purchase a house in Golden and the doors were not opening.  One morning in church we spoke to a couple who said that they had also been renting in Golden and wanted to buy.  They said they finally found a house they could afford.  The Lord planted in a home outside Golden.  The next day we had a conversation with our pastor's wife and she also told us that they could not afford Golden.  So Mark and I took these words as the Lord's way of guiding us.  That same week we viewed this house outside Golden.  We made an offer on it after one viewing.  I felt such peace in the house and did not want to leave it. We made our offer.  Another offer was made at the same time.  Amazingly, our offer was accepted.  So far everything is going very well.  The home inspection is this Wednesday, so please pray for us.

Otherwise we are trying to do our best with raising our two challenging boys.  Also, I am still having health issues with dizziness.  I was prescribed a steroid spray.  I was using it, but it was not helping so I have an appointment to see an ENT.  My tummy is still causing me discomfort.  After moving surgery will probably be the next thing we tackle as soon as we get my balance issue cleared up.  Having surgery will require a huge amount of faith.

Hello Becky,
I know it has been a very long time. I have been so sick and fighting such problems. The Lord called me to seek you out today and so I am checking in with you. I have not forgotten you nor have I gone away. Please be sure to get plenty of water at the new high altitude. It is still hard for me after all these years to remember to get the proper amount of fluids for this climate. It will ease the tummy as well as the dizziness. Even though it is not as warm here, you will need to get MORE water than we were used to taking in while living in Colorado. At one point during the winter I was in the hospital and the nurse told me I had chronic dehydration which was making my health issues worse. I pray that the Lord blesses you and guides you towards Doctors that heal. Much love, Cherie

Hi Becky: I haven't viewed your blog for some time so I was so happy to read that you've found a house! Isn't the Lord good? So happy for you. It looks so lovely! We are feeling more at home here in Mongolia which is a great blessing. Things are coming together with work and now a church, I say in faith! We are looking to the Lord for this. Coming back for Christmas to spend time with the girls and the church in California. Take care - much love, Kathy
