Now listen, you who say...

Now listen, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money." Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, "If it is the Lord's will, we will live and do this or that." As it is, you boast and brag. All such boasting is evil.
James 4:13-16
Okay...so If it is the Lord's will, we will be heading to South Carolina tomorrow to remove one of the many Black Clouds that has been following us around for so long. We hope to close on David's mother's house sometime tomorrow or perhaps Monday...we are hoping that God's will would say TOMORROW!!! But that remains to be seen.
Please continue to pray for us as we will need traveling mercies to drive for 5 hours with Aly in the car. Her max car seat time is...oh...in the neighborhood of about 8.2 minutes on a good day. That leaves a LOT of time for her to scream and meltdown between here and Columbia!!!!
She does better if she has her DVD player to occupy her, but...at the moment...I have NO IDEA where it is. GREAT!!!!! She doesn't know it is missing yet...I don't think I will bring it up before we go.
Anyway, then we are on up the road a ways to go visit some dear friends in Johnson City for a few days. We can't go as far as Columbia and not go on up to TN.
okay...so keep those prayers going.
Prayer request:
1-that we have no more trouble with the woman who is supposed to be buying the house...she has been a ROYAL PAIN
2-that all T's have been crossed and all I's dotted on both ends so there are no hangups
3- that the girls will travel well
4-that we will all be safe and remain healthy for the duration!!!
5- that the rest of our collection of little black clouds will STAY HOME and give us a break!!!!

Just saw this, and you will all be in our prayers. It is already Sunday, so I hope everything went smoothly and you are now enjoying the rest of your trip.

My prayers are with you sweetie. Travel safely and I hope that somehow that DVD Player appears before you have to leave. I will be praying that the closing is successful and that you will be refreshed with the visit with your friends in Johnson City.

Love you lots!
