2 Kings 4:1-7
So many times we focus on what we don't have. But the truth is that we always have something to give, offer, bring. This story is about this widow who had creditors after her, threatnening to take her sons as slaves. All she had was a flask of olive oil- but even this was something, even this was more than enough. Because when divided into jars she had enough of them to sell and pay off her debt.
May I always be resourceful with what I have. May I focus on what I do have, what I can offer and see how that multiplies and is more than enough. And isn't this what God is all about? Our relationship with him. We don't have anything to offer this great God, nothing but ourselves. But that is all He wants, just me, just you.

So I finally had a minute to sit down and upload the pics that have been sitting on my camera. We have been very busy trying to settle in and unpack. I had no idea that we had so much stuff! We are loving life here in our new home and the boys are adjusting well. Thankfully sleep schedules have remained pretty intact and we haven't had any major adjustment "issues" (other than some attitude here and there, fun).
