"I Lift up My Eyes to the Mountains..."

We've been here for a week. A whole week.

It's been a week of ups and downs. But we are feeling physically better than we did last week. That's a huge plus.

Today I ventured out on my own with the kids. We made a trip to Target and then Chick Fil A. Nothing like sweet tea to soothe the soul. :) And Bella enjoyed playing there for a while. I know it's a place that we'll be back to often.

Lee was able to get out and ask about some jobs and take care of a few other things. We are still believing that he will get a great part-time job with great hours, pay, and possibly benefits! We know that is not too small for God.

And we know that a house is not too small for God either. Just another miracle that will bring Him glory. It can get overwhelming looking for a house and job, but I've been challenged to live in victory and not defeat.

I woke up thinking this morning to remember the victories we've had. The blessings that God has abundantly poured out on us. The miracles that have and continue to take place right before our eyes... and this can let us know that God is at work even right now for more miracles on our behalf.

I'm also reminded of this Psalm...a good one for me to work on memorizing right now...especially since we live in the mountains.

Psalm 121

A song of ascents.
1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
