Hi everyone ;) :)

Wow, things are getting crazy here...but crazy good. I've had trouble getting a post up. Oh, nothing bad at all. It's all good, as a matter of fact. My dad and I have been really, really busy packing boxes in  preperation for our move to California. We're moving at the end of August. Howev er, my dad wants everything completely packed and ready by August 21st.  He wants that last week to just relax. Quite frankly, so do I :) :) :)  So I've literally not had much time to do anything. Pray that I can get at least one really good post up before I leave ;) :) :)

Oh, God really blesses and he blesses in a practical way :) :) I've been wanted a fancy big kid/adult camera...w hat I call any camera that costs a few hundred dollars...You know what I'm talking about? Something super duper. Well, a couple in my church gave me theirs for FREE.  I had used this camera of theirs to take baptism shots a couple of Sundays ago...Wow, and tonight... I'd mentioned in passing a few days earlier, that if I ever could afford a camera like this...I'd give my current camera to another lady at church. She doesn't have a digital camera. So God answered and I'm waiting for my friend to come back from vacation to suprise her with a camera :) :) It's the one I use to take all the photos I post on my blog. Now I've got a camera that can do so much MORE than my current camera ;) :) What a blessing...proof positive that God blesses....He takes care of our needs and wants :) :) :) Wow...I'm shocked and happy :) :) So now to take a boatload of photos  :) :) :)

I've got to get read for church tomorrow. That's the news from Oregon today :) :) Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

Hi Heather!
Long time, but I'm catching up with your blog this morning as I'm us earlier than usual!
I will be praying for you and your father as y'all make your move to California! I hope it's just the perfect step (and with God leading, how could it not be?).
My husband and I have been talking for a year or so about moving to Oregon. He thinks it's about the most perfect spot he can think of to live. I'm not so sure! We live in Texas, and it's just too hot here for both of us. We're getting in to our 50's, have to think of down-sizing because of his health, and are really facing an early retirement sort of lifestyle with minimum income.
I'd love for you to give me some info if you have time about Oregon and what you think.
So glad things are looking so good for I said, I'll be praying y'all have a smooth and easy move and transition.

Hope all goes well with the move and how wonderful that you were blessed with a new camera. Have a wonderful Sunday. We just got back from church, had a good service from Micah today. Hugs, Kim

Rebecca said...

I can "hear" your packing noises :) That is so wise - to allow a cushion between the packing & actual move. So much less hectic!

Happy with you re. the camera, Heather.

Blessings with your move and you are so right..
God is great ....

I like my digital cameras very much, especially the fact that they can take both photos and video too! What more does your new camera do? I like the simplicity too--auto focus and easy to change the size. Nice of you to give your old one to someone else to use.

Good luck with your packing!

Awesomeness!!! How fortunate for you girl! That is really cool and I know you will have fun with it. That is so very sweet of them to give you their camera and what a sweet blessing you will be when you give yours away. That's so nice!

Jill said...

Keeping you and your dad in my prayers and wishing you all the very best! Hope the move goes smoothly....keep us posted!
