Caleb turns six and we have a place to live

Thanking God today for the 4th little blessing He has given us! Our little Mr. is six today! He has been asking for days now.."How long till my birthday?" ;o)
  When we look back on this past year and how far we have come from his fall and concussion on the 12 of July last year, we stand amazed at how God has helped, healed and touched him thru all the scary tests, waiting and his diagnosis of NF1. Today, Caleb is a lively bundle of energy who loves to ask lots of questions (hard ones at times), play games, do whatever big brother is doing, and snuggle with his raggedy, torn, but-much-loved 'B'. He keeps us on our toes and I know God was not making a mistake when He made Caleb our last child..whew! He plain wears me out at times! We love him so much and do not know what we would do without him! He completes our family and we are celebrating him today :o) We are in the middle of VBS at our church and so we made lots of fun cupcakes with gummy bears and sour patch kids on top to share. We have a lot going on right now so we will have a party for him later.
  Last blog post I shared that we were packing to move but did not know where. Well, God did! He worked it out that we have been offered more time in the house we are staying in. Victory Acres has another house that they feel will be better suited for the Nehemiah Project and have graciously offered to continue renting to us. We are still concerned about schooling and are continuing to pray for God's direction. Danny has applied for a good position at a local college and we are praying for God's will to be done. We are happy to be able to stay at 'our' church and looking forward to what God has in store for our family. Next week we will be going to Danville Bible Methodist church and teaching a VBS for them. Appreciate your prayers as we attempt to teach the boys and girls about how to be good Soldiers of the Cross and we are praying that some of them will want to 'enlist' in His army and give their hearts and lives to Jesus!
 The next week we will be going to Heartland Bible Methodist Youth Camp. Becca and Ben will be campers and we will be helping out wherever needed. Looking forward to a fun week!
