Woke up this morning to find...no water! Joys! I must be getting soft ! I lived for years without running water and now I don't seem to know how to function without it!!! Oh, well!
The electricity was off for a bit this morning as well!!! Venezuela going green!!!! To think I lived for over ten years without electricity and here I am whining!!! Then my Hubby tore my beloved air conditioner out of my room!!! And today was the day I planned to wash all the curtains I need to sell at the sale, and I planned to empty all my closets and drawers of my bedroom in the COOL air conditioning!! Oh well!!! We only have the one air conditioner! Oh, well!!!
Looks like the shipping should go on the boat today. Thanks for your prayers! The boat arrived two days late in port here which gave us more time!!!! Tomorrow, there is a big government function there ,so if it doesn't get loaded today.....oh well!!!
We only have a few things in the smallest possible container. We are sharing it with another American family who is leaving. The two families together only managed to cover the floor of a twenty foot container. Mostly sentimental family things. No furniture!! We did have some pricey air plane parts we needed to ship back to the states as well as two wing tanks we had brought down to install on the Cessna 206 for extra fuel during jungle flights. But then when we were told to leave and so they never were installed. oh, well!!!!
The girls had an evening with friends last night. Pizza and ice cream. And good byes! It is hard on them to leave friends and home again. We just did this 18 months ago when we left the jungle.
I know they will be strong women because of all they have gone through. I know they are tough kids and will come through even stronger. I know the Lord will not require of us more than we can bear!! I rest in that peace and I have seen Jewel, who is 16, get stronger by the day!!! so... oh, well!!!
Please continue to pray for the legal matter we are dealing with!!! Urgently!! partly, I think God is allowing all this so that we are READY to leave! The hassle makes you just want to GO!!!Pray we keep a good testimony and are able to take the nonsense thrown our way in these last days! I can not share with you all the things we are told and have to just TAKE!! ARGGHH!!! oh, well!!
So.... Pray for God's perfect will in our lives and that we have the grace to go through it as His witnesses without shame.
HEY! At least, I have time to blog!!!!
