Counting down the days!

Hello friends!
Well I am counting down the days, I cannot tell you how excited I am! Having 7 people in a three bedroom apartment does not work- at least not comfortably! What was supposed to be a two month  stay in temp housing turned into 6 months! Well time is almost up and surely you can understand my excitement!
***
This is a page out my "Welcome Home" mini book - these are quotes and scriptures I want to put in and around my house somehow - haven't figured out how yet but I'll figure it out.
***
Meanwhile we are settling in - at least trying to! I did sing yesterday at church (we are going to a church close to our new home) and the kids are making friends. We are about 40 minutes away right now so the kids do have to transfer to a new school in the fall. ( Which is why we wanted them to make friends at church!) Yesterday I sang "Blessings" by Laure Story. If you haven't heard it, I put it below so you can hear it - it is an amazing song.

I will probably do a scrapbook page with some of the lyrics - about our kids and their special needs and what we've been through...it's  very powerful.
Here are the lyrics
***

We pray for blessings
We pray for peace
Comfort for family, protection while we sleep
We pray for healing, for prosperity
We pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering
All the while, You hear each spoken need
Yet love us way too much to give us lesser things

Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights
Are what it takes to know You’re near
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise

We pray for wisdom
Your voice to hear
And we cry in anger when we cannot feel You near
We doubt Your goodness, we doubt Your love
As if every promise from Your Word is not enough
All the while, You hear each desperate plea
And long that we'd have faith to believe

Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights
Are what it takes to know You’re near
And what if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise

When friends betray us
When darkness seems to win
We know the pain reminds this heart
That this is not, this is not our home

Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears
And what if a thousand sleepless nights
Are what it takes to know You’re near
What if my greatest disappointments
Or the aching of this life
Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can’t satisfy
And what if trials of this life
The rain, the storms, the hardest nights
Are Your mercies in disguise



I hope this speaks to you and blesses you. Let me know what you think!
