Moving everything!

"The mind of man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps." Proverbs 16:9

Remember when we had big plans for our yard? Well, moving kind of put a kink in our plans! Now, what to do with the remaining supplies? Hmmm. What about Craig's List? Never tried it, but I'll give it a whirl.

Listed our supplies and had responses almost immediately. One guy purchased all the flagstone and two others purchased all the timbers.Because I was selling to the public, I was a bit concerned about what kind of people would be coming to my house. You see, Eric moved to KS about two months ago and now I'm here by myself. He moved the href="">weekend my brother flew in to roof the house.

However, God was my Protector and sent very nice, seemingly-upstanding people. One man even brought his wife every time he came for a load. I appreciated that. Now everything's gone and my dear, sweet neighbor helped me clean the yard. Except, we still have no grass! Oh well, that will have to wait for another day - or another owner!!

Love the verse you used today Paula. I am a firm believer in that.
Craig's List is a super tool. We have sold many things on it. I'm so happy it all went. It makes the moving easier doesn't it?
Thanks for all your kind encouraging words. This has been a hard time for everyone but we are anchored on a solid Rock.

Hi Paula,

I am so glad the Lord brought some good people in to buy your lumber. I am a big fan of Craigslist, as I have had nothing but good experiences. I believe that God absolutely protects us. I have bought my couch and matching chair, my computer armoire, and my piano from Craigslist. I also sold our old dining room table to a lovely family on Craigslist. It's been a blessing to us:)

Love and Blessings on this journey!!!
