Well sickness has struck the Homestead over the past two weeks. I finally went to the doctor today after battling for two solid weeks. I have bronchitis, and that mixed with my allergies, has caused me misery! I hate going to the doctor, but I was tired of fighting it. I got a steroid, inhaler and a cough suppressant. I also hate taking drugs as they mess me up, but at this point I have tried everything! Most of my family has battled sickness as well over the past couple weeks but it has been a couple days and most are better. Hoping to get up and around in the next couple days. I have a lot of work to do!
We got a nasty storm yesterday and there were some tornadoes that hit close to us. We were under a tornado watch for a while. I recorded some of the storm. Check it out below. I am so happy that I got my vehicles put in the garage before it hit. We would of had some serious hail damage!
On a good note....we are 23 weeks into our pregnancy. Janel is doing much better, although she got a little sick this past week. I am so thankful to the Lord and for all the prayers that were lifted up for her. She really struggled through the first trimester but the Lord pulled her through. He is so good! We haven't officially decided on a name for our new little girl, but we are close. We'll talk about that in our next "Prego Vlog." All I know as that we are ready to hold our little baby girl!
We have some big decisions that we are praying through right now and would LOVE if you would pray with us. Exciting times at the Homestead! We have some potential big news, but are praying for God's leading! My prayer is that God would either open the door wide open, or shut it close and leave no doubt. I trust in the Lord and whichever way he leads, I will follow! My life verse is Proverbs 3:5-6:
"Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." (KJV)
I love the promises of God. I am thankful for His mighty Word!
Warm weather is coming soon and I am ready. I love spring and the beauty of Gods glorious creation in full bloom. I will never understand how someone could look at the beauty of this world and not see the handiwork of the Creator! What a mighty King we serve!
God bless you all, and thank you for those of you who have prayed for us over the years. We are beyond blessed with the messages, and emails from you all. Let us know if we can pray for you as well! We would love to. Thanks again! -Steve
