Good morning, Lord!
WOW, what an amazing day yesterday, full of the most terrible lows AND the most encouraging hopes! I never went to sleep that night, so distressed and stressed over very personal matters, yet also so creatively active-minded was I, like being in turbo design mode with an undercurrent of unrelated despair. Then when it was finally 2am, I jumped online and got to work, wrote yesterday’s post, finished up converting one of my websites ( from free to $5 for 24 hour access, and did all the promo work for that. I also found and contacted someone on Craigslist about a unique camper my husband had seen listed while we were at the library earlier in the day. By the end of “free internet time” yesterday (8am), we were in contact with the seller’s son, and AMAZED that we could actually get a trailer which normally sells for $6000+ for $2000 and with full eBay buyer protection (they reimburse our investment up to $20,000 if the deal goes bad on us)!!


It appears that God may be blessing us with THIS camper, as our home on wheels!! First pic shows it with the sliders in, second with the sliders out. It has a kitchen and bathroom, even a shower and a small oven, AND for my husband in particular — a good size frig and freezer, lol! So far, it looks like there are NO real drawbacks to the situation — it even gets delivered here to us within 3 days, AND we have 5 days to inspect it and accept or reject it — BUT when it comes down to it, we are still trusting God 100% to both guide and protect us. We belong to Him, and anything we own does as well. If He intends us to be blessed with this amazing camper trailer, He will continue to make it happen, as He has so far. Even my sister, who is likewise sensitive to the Spirit, feels confident and peaceful about it, encouraging us forward, so we even have confirmation on that end. Thank you, Lord God, no matter how this turns out!!

Hebrews 11:1-4,6,8,13-16 (lol) ERV:

Faith is what makes real the things we hope for. It is proof of what we cannot see. 
God was pleased with the people who lived a long time ago because they had faith like this. 
Faith helps us understand that God created the whole world by his command. This means that the things we see were made by something that cannot be seen. 
Cain and Abel both offered sacrifices to God. But Abel offered a better sacrifice to God because he had faith. God said he was pleased with what Abel offered. And so God called him a good man because he had faith. Abel died, but through his faith he is still speaking…
Without faith no one can please God. Whoever comes to God must believe that he is real and that he rewards those who sincerely try to find him…
God called Abraham to travel to another place that he promised to give him. Abraham did not know where that other place was. But he obeyed God and started traveling because he had faith. 
All these great people continued living with faith until they died. They did not get the things God promised his people. But they were happy just to see those promises coming far in the future. They accepted the fact that they were like visitors and strangers here on earth. 
When people accept something like that, they show they are waiting for a country that will be their own. 
If they were thinking about the country they had left, they could have gone back. 
But they were waiting for a better country—a heavenly country. So God is not ashamed to be called their God. And he has prepared a city for them.

Lord, you see everything in us, behind us, and in front of us. I trust that you have good plans for us, and will use us for your own will and purpose as it suits you. I thank you for your guidance and care, and I thank you for giving us a CHANCE to serve you, to dedicate ourselves to you, and to be actually FREE to serve you, unhindered during these last decades of our lives. I accept your will for me, whether it includes this nice camper or not. We were perfectly content with the idea of living in a tiny, ugly camper that needed to be rebuilt, but you seem to be providing something that is so much more than we could ever have hoped for. Please continue to protect us and guide us, Father. Thank you for choosing us and using us. Amen.
