What God Has Been Teaching Me

I feel like this year God has decided to teach me the lesson of "Trust in Me. I am in Control. I have a Plan.

First our plans to move to PEI. We filled out all of my immigration paper work and we are now waiting...and waiting... and waiting.

Another thing with the move is that we need to sell our house. So it is on the market, a very saturated house market in the area right now, and we are waiting...and waiting...and waiting.

And today was the day we told everyone that we are expecting our first child in November. So more waiting and more things that could go wrong. What if my paper work doesn't come through on time? What if the baby is born early and is therefore born here in the States?

I could totally stress myself out with these worries. I am a person who likes to be in control. I like to decide on a plan and attack it. I like to know what is coming next.

And yet, I will admit that I have never felt more at peace then I do right now. I am not in control. God has a plan. He has provided for us so perfectly in the past, and I have no doubts that he will do it again. What a promise and what a comfort.

And then he does great things like he did today. We bought a trailer for our move and had been waiting on some papers from the previous owner in order to get a Minnesota title for it, so we can import it into Canada. We had been contacting the previous owner, but never was actually able to speak to him, or get an e-mail reply.

And today we get the mail and what is on the top of the pile? The letter we have been waiting for.

God is good.

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.
