::this end up::

Once upon a time, a soldier met a teacher
they fell madly in love
they got married 
they changed jobs
they had their firstborn son
they worked (too) hard and loved others (too) little
they lost sight of the Lord
they were pruned and reminded to seek the Lord in all things first
they began to pray together
they sought the Lord
they had their little lady
they shelved their plans and sought the Lord
they suffered loss and walked through hard times
they sought the Lord
they accepted D's new position that would take them across the country
they celebrated and then they...sought the Lord

We are walking through a chapter in our life that is exhilarating as we seek the Lord's work in our lives. 
We have big requests of Him in the next 8 weeks (yikes!),
 but we know that his word says:

What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive,because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures. James 4:1-3

So loved ones this is what we're asking for:

Not only are we asking the Lord to sell our house for a reasonable asking price, but we are also praying that He will provide it as a blessing to another family.

We are asking that He continues to use sermons to speak into our specific situation. 

We are asking that this move brings our family closer to Him as we put our full faith in Him.

We are asking that the Lord shows us ways to bless and serve those around us as we prepare to move, during the move, and as we settle into our new locations.

We are asking that the Lord provides us a church family that we can do life with, that we somehow remain connected to our current church family, and that our children continue to love learning about Jesus.

We are asking that the Lord provides us a house in California that is a financially wise decision to purchase or rent.

We are asking that the Lord resolves the estate questions we have for D's dad's house.

We are asking that the Lord works in mighty ways to grow our relationship with our CA daughter. 

We are asking that He uses this time in our life to help us marvel at his wonders.

Lord, you have been our dwelling place
    throughout all generations.
Before the mountains were born
    or you brought forth the whole world,
    from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
Psalms 90: 1,2
