    Hi Natasha,

    Sometime you should tell some of the other stories surrounding the building of your house: like the tongue and groove, and the flooring, and whatever else happened miraculously. I love these stories. I read this series several years ago, but I just reread it again.

    God Bless,
    Bethany

  3. I’ve waited in anticipation for every next part of the story! I learn from you and am inspired by your stories and the things you are processing with God, and am so grateful that I somehow stumbled on your blog several years ago. I have been waiting on the Lord for years for some things, and realized that I had lost hope that God even cares about these dreams in my heart. Then I heard the familiar worship song that God never slumbers or sleeps, and suddenly the song had new meaning…God does not slumber or sleep with my dreams either. This is not something that He has put on the back burner and forgotten about. He is very much active in putting things together and will bring this to fruition in His timing. And I sense Him saying that it will be better and different than I’ve been anticipating! As long as I am walking with Him He will bring these things to pass. So thank you for sharing your stories, it confirms that God does care about details.

    1. Oh, what a beautiful image that thought gives us! That God is not slumbering or sleeping when it comes to our dreams. He is living and active. Amen and amen. Thank you, Connie, for sharing this.

    Please, tell us more!!! Please!!! I love your stories… and your faith! And I can’t wait to come and visit you, some spring day!!! <3

    1. Thank you, Rhonda– we’d LOVE to have you visit! And I’m sure more stories will leak through. In the meantime, I have all these other burning things to share. Months and months of waiting for adoptions to finalize so I can write a bit more freely. 🙂 Thank you for all your love and prayers and the deep way you understand. <3

    Sooo needed this. It’s fanning the little flame of hope inside of me. Thank you, friend, you’re so right. He delights in giving us the desires of our hearts.

    1. I was going to text you the other day and then got frustrated with my phone. I’ll probably email instead. 🙂 But Jessiqua, thank you–so, so much for the way you encouraged and prayed with me through the loss of Annie. It STILL blesses me. And I am praying for you as you face this new journey! <3

      1. SO happy to read this, friend. If you only knew how often you come to mind. God has a whole boxing corner praying for you, I think. It’s so exciting to watch Him work! 🙂

  7. He knows the desires of our hearts, even the smallest ones we don’t voice!! Praise Him, now and forever! He is faithful!

    Thank you for the story, Natasha. God is so good! Just think, too, that if you had designed it all and bought it yourself, some of the praise would be claimed by you….”Yes, I designed it that way because of my Grandma’s kitchen that I loved,” but this way, all the praise goes to God. That’s what gives you the hope, the joy, the courage to endure, the satisfaction of telling and retelling the story of God’s faithfulness, and the strength to be kind to your children and husband. Isn’t God great?

  9. no fair Tashie, you make me cry every-time……….well at least you sharing the goodness of our Heavenly Daddy. Details we love the details, keep them coming.

    1. Thank you, Curt. And thank you for helping disciple me over the years. I appreciate your faithfulness.

    Natasha, your story is beautiful! And I love how God answered so many of your prayers, even before you prayed them! He is an amazing God, and blesses us beyond our wildest dreams in so many way, if we let Him. I hope you continue to tell your story…it has been a blessing to me! Would love to know how he provided the rest of the house that you were destined before the beginning of time, to raise your sweet children in! Thanks for blessing me with your story.

    1. I will definitely share more of the story in the weeks and months to come! It’s such a grand tale. 🙂 He is a good God.

  11. I teared up a little. Thank you for sharing of God’s abundant kindness.
