Busy And A Prayer Request


We have been so busy lately.  We have built a storage shed and we are in the process of adding a room, well, kinda two rooms.  I don't know if you've read Barb's blog at Victoria Hill Farm lately or not.  She has been left on her own and can't afford her home all by herself, so she and her kids are moving in with us for awhile.


My husband has been busy building a storage building for some of her things and taking down fences and bringing them down here.  See, just about every other weekend we have been up at her house helping her get things ready for her move to SC.  So, if I haven't visited your blog lately, I haven't forgotten, I'll be back when things slow down.


If you could say a prayer for Barb and her kids, I would appreciate it.  I know the move is going to be hard on the kids.  Having to move a few hours away from their friends and church is difficult for them to understand.  Barb is having such a tough time right now, she doesn't want to lose the home she worked so hard to make nice for her family.  Sharing a home, will be difficult for both our families.  But, I hope with prayer we will be able to make it through.  I want to be able to help them get back on their feet again.

Oh Nancy... what a good friend you are! But then, knowing you (if only through blogging - at this point anyway) I'm not at all surprised at the size of your heart and at your generosity! What a wonderful thing for you and your family to do for a friend!

Prayers are being said for y'all!

This is a bad situation for all of you. It will not be easy and will require a lot of patience. May you find the strength to make this work for all concerned.

oh wow, you all need our prayers. We have done this several times---actually 3 times we have lived with another family. It really can be stress filled. It really takes work. Hope God blesses this endeaver and enables you to help in this situation.

I'm so sorry to hear about what's going on in Barb's world.
I have been there.
I will definitely be praying for her and her kids.
Tell her to just take things one day at a time. She WILL survive.
She is so lucky to have someone like you and your family!
