Ultimate Provision

"Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God who richly provides us with everything ..." 1 Timothy 6:17

Well, once again, I am loving how God always knows just what I need to hear at exactly the right moment or season in my life. As most of you know, David is still without a job, and our total and complete dependence is on HIM to provide just the right opportunity for us. There's nothing like having no income, no insurance, and no clear path to put your faith to the test! I am so thankful for God's promises to us, HIS children, and am clinging to them, as well as the love and grace from my Heavenly Father. In these uncertain times, we should all be reminded that our foundation is not in any part made up of monetary stability, but of an awesome and merciful Father who loves us dearly and will never leave our sides and always provide just what we need! Amen!

Resting in HIM,

Texas bound!

We took a trip to TX to spend Easter with David's family. While we were there, the Lord placed on our hearts that we were to make a move there and completely put our dependancy on HIM. What a leap of faith! We are feeling excited and anxious about this big move, but know that if we continue to be obedient and prayerful, and to listen to HIS still small voice, that HE will direct our paths in just the right way to bring glory and honor to HIM! We will be staying with David's parents for a short while until we can get more clarity on what exactly it is we are to be doing. The girls LOVE it's basically a summer camp. They live on a farm in east TX, and there is never a shortage of fun things to do! Here's just a sample of all the fun we had while we were there for 2 weeks.

Where have I been, you ask?

Ok, ok....I know the previous post has been up WAY too long, and I do appologize for that, but boy oh boy, has it been a whirlwind of time the past 2 months!'s what's been going on with us Haefs bunch.

Kayla had her birthday! I can't believe my baby is 4 years old already! We celebrated in the exact same way we did last year....Chuck E Cheese (gotta love the coupons that help out with the cost!) She had decided that she wanted a Wall E cake after Anna got hers a month or so before, so we got an identical cake, only this one said, "Happy Birthday Kayla!" I dolled her up in a new birthday tutu I made (bubblegum pink and extra poofy of course), a new birthday shirt, and we did the sponge rollers the night before so she could have extra fancy hair for her new birthday bow to go in! Whew......what a princess!

David graduated! As most of you know, the past 2 years have been trying for all of us, being that David was a full time student and at work full time. Many a lonely night were spent, and alot of hard work on his end (and mine.....I was his "assistant") went into school work when we'd have much rather just sat together on the couch and watched a movie, but it all paid off. I am so proud of him...

I went to Nashville to visit my family, and my Granny and Aunt Heather flew in from CA as well. It was wonderful to see them, as I haven't seen them for 4 years...Kayla was just a baby, and they hadn't even met Anna yet. The girls had a great time with them and with their cousins Jack and Ruby.

We decided to use our trip that we bid on and won at the New Year's party for the beach, since David was done with school and had no work obligations. We so enjoyed being there, and even were able to coax some friends of ours to go with us, even though the weather wasn't exactly ideal beach weather. The day we got there it was in the mid 60's, so we spent the entire day on the beach. The other days were a bit rainy, but we were blessed none the less to have had the opportunity to be there and to have sweet fellowship with good friends!

In HIS Grace and Love,
