The Domino Effect

Well, the domino effect has begun at our house.  What's the domino effect you ask?  Well, let me tell you.
1. Ben and Rachel got a car.
2. That means Sarah can move out to Brianna's house now that they both have vehicles to drive.
3.  April 9th is the move out date.
4.  Sarah begins to pack.
5. The nest emptying has begun.
It's interesting how Ben got his car.  He took a friend who is very knowledgeable about cars.  They looked at the car and then drove it.  While driving it the radiator gave them problems.  So, because of that and the fact that this car has been on the lot for a long time, AND the fact Ben and his friend were talking loudly enough about price for the salesman to hear, Ben paid far less than the origianl asking price.  Just another God thing showing Ben that God is working to get them closer to their mission home in Cleveland.  Ben said, it's amazing to watch things happen and know it's God.

This is a gorgeous picture Val posted tonight from Florida. She deserves this kind of life.  It's temporary for the winter, however I think they are staying through the beginning of May.
This is a picture of sunset in Key Largo by my brother and sister-in-law.
So thankful that this is how it is for God's children.  
This is another stop on the Cleveland Tour.  This is the William G. Mather Steamship. On July 22, 1995, the Steamship William G. Mather Museum was acquired by the Harbor Heritage Society, a newly-formed nonprofit corporation organized to preserve and develop the Mather as a maritime museum and lakefront attraction at its East Ninth Street Pier location.

Great Lakes Science Center and the Steamship William G. Mather are linked by the Cleveland – Cliffs Connector, which is the first phase of an eventual plan to make the Mather a year round attraction. A grant funded by the Ohio & Erie Canal Commission allowed the Mather to produce new signage and graphic panels to tell the fascinating history of this unique maritime museum. Future plans include new exhibits, hands – on displays and special programming. There is more information about this ship found here.

The tour of this ship is really interesting especially if you've never been in something this size.
Verse of the Day:As soon as I read this, the words, 'We are not home yet', came to mind. It's so hard to remember that sometimes as we get wrapped up in life.
Here's a song that goes perfectly with the verse for today.  Listen to the words and concentrate so that you may continue to do what God has you here to do.

Blessing of the Day: Ben and Rachel got a car.  Sarah's excited to move in with Brianna.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Bring tissues April 9th for me as we help Sarah move out.  You know mom's emotional ties run deep.
