Busy, Busy, Busy!

Barb's land being bush-hogged by a neighbor
I know y'all probably thought I fell off the face of the earth!  But, I didn't.  I have just been busy, busy, busy.  Amazing things have started happening!  I know most of y'all know that Barb and her kids have been staying with my family since last summer.  If you've read her blog lately, you may knows some of this already.  But, we decided to sell her a small part of our land and let her pay for it when she can.  Barb had it surveyed and it ended up being almost 2 acres.

She was also able to afford to have it deeded over to her.  I think she feels better knowing that she owns something again.  This week someone came to see if a septic tank could be put on it and it passed.

She has already started decorating her new homestead
Now, I can't tell you the most amazing things right now, I think I should let Barb tell when she's ready.  But let me just say that I have the best, most wonderful family, and church family in the world.  They are making things happen.  We have all been doing as much as possible to help things along and it has kept us so busy!

Barb hasn't found a job down here yet (we have the highest unemployment rate in the state), but she is sure trying hard!  She had an interview this week, so pray for good things to come of it!  Also, many thanks to those of you who have prayed for my family and Barb's family.  God is certainly answering prayers in a big way! Thank You Lord for your blessings!

*****Edited to add-Barb didn't get the job, so please pray for another one to come along*****

Wonderful news and a bit of a cliff hanger too, Nancy. Can't wait to hear the rest of the story. I'll be praying for Barb to find a suitable job. May God bless you all during this time.

Aww how wonderful:) I can read the excitement in your words. Just a thought. Y'all could brainstorm and see what kind of online business you could start.
Best wishes to you:)

Hello Nancy

Barb is lucky to have a friend who cares--the world needs more people like you. Please tell Barba not to give up on a job!

Take-Care
