Making this move get going!!!

     So you would think we didn't have much to get rid of, knowing that when we sold our house in Colorado we had 4 HUGE yard sales and so so so much sold on craigslist. Nope...we have plenty to sell. And so to move forward toward our move to Jeremie we are doing our first yard sale here. We have had a few yard sales here to raise funds for our short term trip to Haiti with the team then. So we are becoming yard sale pros! That's right! Ha...But truthfully the crazy part is that it's January and warm enough to do a yard sale. Cracks me up. Of course, as I write this outside our little place in San Diego it's the coldest it's been in a long time. Cold enough to have frost on the ground at 7pm!! There's snow 45minutes away from us right now. And to top it off my weather app on the phone even said that at midnight last night we could've had snow...which leads to another fun story....
    So the kids saw that my phone said it might snow. Whenever  we talk about snow the kids get super excited, especially Isaiah! So with his love for snow he started talking about what it would be like if it snowed in Haiti. So we, Aaron and I, responded that if it snows in Haiti Jesus is coming back! And of course Isaiah's eyes became a mile wide with excitement. And of course yesterday that excitement came back and flurried through our house as if it were snowing for real! The kids went to bed at normal time and around 11pm Rachel came scurrying out of her room a bit groggy. She was doing a little jiggle so we figured she needed to make it to the potty quickly. She was super out of it, which is pretty normal for her. She sleeps heavy! So once she actually came to I asked if she was ok. She then responded, "If it snows tonight, is Jesus really coming?" WOW! I giggled with her in her sweet tender excitement! It blessed my heart so much that her excitement to see her Savior kept her up in the night wondering if the snow would bring Him here. And she didn't want to miss Him! Her hunger for the Word is growing daily and her questions are deep and sincere. It is such a gift to watch her understand Who created here and want to get to know Him. And if I had any idea that He might show up in the middle of the night because of crazy unexpected snow...I might keep myself up in excitement too!
