Transitions and Giveaway

We are down to just one week left in Houston. Mixed feelings.

We moved out of our very first place together on Tuesday and became roamers... living out of bags and the back of our truck. But we have some great friends that offered us a place to stay while we finish up work and school. So we have a place to sleep and eat and spend time with people we like. :) God has really blessed us with friends in Houston.

Did we mention that they live walking distance from Frankie's office?! So helpful since we drove his car to San Antonio last weekend and left it there... We can also walk to a ton of restaurants, shops, and even our farmers market! :) And we're only 10 minutes from Ecclesia! Easy peasy compared to the 35 minute drive we had before..we might want to just move in here! ;)

Change is coming fast, in fact it has already started. It feels nice to be going through this at the same time as Easter. It's like BIG things are happening everywhere. :) We are happy that we can follow Christ wherever he leads us, thought it can be scary.

Next week starts a new transition, we will no longer be homeless but we will be jobless... and that is extremely scary. But we try to remind ourselves of Matthew 6:25-34

If you decide for God, living a life of God-worship, it follows that you don't fuss about what's on the table at mealtimes or whether the clothes in your closet are in fashion. There is far more to your life than the food you put in your stomach, more to your outer appearance than the clothes you hang on your body. Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God. And you count far more to him than birds. (MSG)

This passage always brings us comfort, especially in the vulnerable times. Knowing that he will provide our every need, makes it all seem so small but His purpose and His plans that much bigger.

So because this is our last weekend to be here we decided to have some fun and do some things we are going to miss... we'll update all about it in this weeks Sunny Saturday post! :) But to hold you over, we've got a giveaway! Yup, right from our very own farmer's market and our soap friend Cammie......
