Hardest Decision Ever! Next Chapter? Thankfulness!

Sweet Smile!! 
Have you ever had to do something that was incredibly hard?


Well today, we made the decision to put Canyon, our dog down.

He lived 16+ years.  The longest any of our dogs has ever lived!
We  never imagined he'd live this long - though we are extremely thankful!   All of his litter siblings were either put down early or died by age 7.   Canyon had anxiety bad.  So much so, he had to be put on Prozac & sedatives at age 3.  We used to joke around that he would be good to take with us if we ever decided to take up bank robbery.  He could bite his way out of a locked cage or locked door in seconds!   His anxiety was so bad for the longest time, we had to build him a special room in our home in KC - one that he couldn't get out of and couldn't hurt himself trying.  Thankfully he settled down these past few years.

For some of you, putting a dog down may seem like no big deal, but for dog lovers like us, it's one of the hardest things to do.  He still had spunk.  He still was feisty and wanting his treats & loves to eat now that I've been adding yogurt to his food.  He still has such a sweet smile on his face.  All the websites I looked at on "when is the best time to put your dog down" would say these things are not signs.  But the signs we had - limping around, ancy, falling pretty easily, tripping over the carpet and I think he was actually losing his eyesight too all point to the end.  It was hurting us to watch him hurting and it's only selfishness on our part to kept him living.  I wished we could of put him down yesterday, but there was no available appointment at vet.  Last night was traumatizing to me.  He couldn't sit or lie still and each time tried to get up, he'd fall back down.  Finally, I woke Ken up (he had to be at work at 4am) as I was going to call vet to see if he could make a house call to put him down.  Ken told me to go to bed and he stayed up with him and had to be at work at 4am.  Canyon finally settled down and rested until this morning.
Always cutest when he slept!

Canyon was the last of 5 dogs we had over the past 30 years.  I haven't been without a pet since 1984.    I think that's what will make this harder.  I'm so used to having a dog or dogs around!

Back in January, a friend called me and told me she felt like God shared something with her about Canyon.  Hesitantly she went on to say that when Canyon passes, we will be moving on.  The Lord spoke that into my spirit as well only a few weeks later.  And we had 5 other people - not knowing this share a similar thought over the past several months.  I had a sense back in 2003 that after Canyon & Blazer passed (Blazer passed last June) we would not have another dog for a season.  And that's where we are at!  A new season, a new chapter!   Kind of bittersweet - but today mostly bitter.  I am grieving hard.

NEXT CHAPTER?
I don't know what the future holds, but I know who holds my future! 

We believe God is about to shift us.  We don't know how or when (think very soon) .....
So many God signs even today Here are a few of many -

Today's Devotional by Rick Renner Title "Moving on in Life at the Right Time"    

By Restoration Place Ministries - My friend, today you are standing on the edge of victory. Today you are poised for break through. This very day, I will deliver you out of the hands of those who oppress you. I Am persistent, bold and overwhelmingly focused on bringing you through every battle, every trial and every temptation you face. Stand firm in your faith for I Am absolutely faithful to all My Word and to all My purposes in your life. I Am not only persistent but I Am also relentless in My faithfulness.


Rise up My friend. Pursue Me. I Am taking you through the harshness of this battle and leading you into pleasant places. Consider yourself not a Victim but a Victor. I have released My Angels to secure your safe passage forward. You are precious to Me, My friend.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
In a vision I saw a man who had endured great heartache and grief.  As I watched, he got up and walked away from the things that held him back.  He rose up with increased strength and courage with a determination to move with God in Spirit and see better days.  Old disappointments left behind in long forgotten places were no longer relevant.  He had new hope and a new beginning.  And, I heard the Lord say, "I want you to do the same."  Philippians 3:13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead.

Terry Gallegos  "A NEW SEASON"
There are so many right now that are on the cutting edge of victory, deliverance healing wholeness crossing over and a major breakthrough unto the other-side,I sense this in my spirit today strongly,,all it's gonna take is one little piece of a
straw to break the camel's back,this word is to encourage you who have ears to hear that this is your season to harvest freedom in places of bondage and to be restored to a place that this tuff season has dis-placed us from,,a place of pure joy and praise to take the place of brokenness and discouragement and despair, YOU HAVE NOT BEEN FORGOTTEN BUT FOUND,,LIFT UP YOUR EYES AND OPEN YOUR MOUTH FOR YOUR HEALER IS AT THE DOOR OF YOUR SOUL,SAYS THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD..

Send me your light and your truth, let them lead me; let them guide me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell. Psalm 43:3


THANKFUL 
Prayer/Praise Reports

PRAISE - Our Stuff - God brought us some amazing helpers to get all of our things out of the lady's basement who has been storing them for 3 years..... these helpers were so efficient!  They cleaned every box, we opened every one up and sprayed for mold and found none - except in one box.  Even our furniture only had a couple of spots - nothing bad!  God was definitely protecting our things.  It took an entire day to do this - but that was way shorter than I anticipated.  And - God put it on someone's heart to pay for the monthly cost of the storage unit!  Wow!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Car - Well the day we were moving all our stuff to storage, our car radiator (we thought) was steaming.  Ken put some stop leak in it and it stopped steaming... but after talking with 2 mechanics they told us we needed to replace the radiator.  That was an estimated $400.  We did not have the funds to pay for it.... but God showed up.  He sent one person to pay $200 to cover the cost of the part and another friend had a mechanic friend who was going to install it - and our friend would cover his cost. Wow!   Well yesterday, Ken took the car to get fixed and the mechanic said it did NOT need a radiator.  He checked everything out and said all looked ok for a car with 160k miles on it!  He told us a few things to keep our eyes on, but not an immediate concern.  So we returned the part and I told my friend I was sending her the check back and she told me to keep it.  Well, what she didn't know was that was the amount we needed to cover Canyon's vet costs.  Isn't God good!   So Thankful!    (We are still praying and believing God for a newer suv!!!)

Ken - He has been doing some inside painting.  This has been a blessing as we have had some extra expenses to cover.   Please pray however, as Dollar General has hired additional people so they plan to cut his hours back to 15 from 25/30.  We definitely need a financial miracle in the way of work.  These odd jobs are great but not consistent.  Please pray for his physical stamina - his back has been hurting lately & for sleep.  

Michele - I have been getting some better sleep.. not consistent by any means, and not 8 hours.  But I am thankful for what I get.  My pain levels have been high.  Headaches that were nearly extinct have returned.  My hips and low back are uck! I think it's because I haven't been able to get to therapeutic swimming.   Please pray for grace for me.... Canyon and my dogs have been my constant companions these past 8 years I've been home.  It gets pretty lonely being stuck at home and now no dog to snuggle up to! 

Ministry - please pray for God to open doors & provide what we need to take steps towards destiny. We've been here almost 4 years (Feb) and we feel our wilderness season is soon coming to an end.  Well, we hope and pray it is!  Too many confirmations for us to believe otherwise.  We are contending and trusting God for His timing.  (But hurry!)

Thank YOU so much for your ongoing support, prayers, love and care for us and our ministry.  We are honored to be able to pray for those who reach out to us.  Please let me know if you have any prayer needs.   For those who have been reaching out, thank you!  I am praying for your requests.  

If you have been blessed by this ministry or feel led to support what God is doing through us - financially, below are a few options.  Your generosity and your prayer support is greatly appreciated and needed as we continue to walk in faith and God's calling.

Vision
God has given us a vision to build a retreat property along with ministry equipping center.  
The retreat portion of our ministry is to provide a safe place for pastors, lay leaders & other ministry folks to come and be refreshed & encouraged through prophetic ministry (if wanted).  We will offer private cabins with kitchens & full bathrooms, and plenty of places to roam on the property to get quiet with the Lord. 
We will offer other specialty retreats - marriage, healing, prophetic teaching & activating people into the world & health and wellness retreats and more.  

The Lord has graced us with the desire to come alongside the Church - to bring healing, deliverance & freedom to new/newer believers.  We are not wanting to replace their church, but better help them be ready to serve in their church. 
In our community building - we will eventually have a 24/7 prayer room, healing & prophetic rooms and a place for community worship services for those on the property.  

Our passion is to minister to a lost & hurting world.   To equip the saints to do the same and to be a blessing to our community and surrounding areas.  Our hopes are that we can pour out God's love in a mighty way to bring more and more souls into the Kingdom, get them discipled, called into their purpose & destiny and released to do God's business!!!!  We also have a passion to give generously to help those in need and to help others launch into their God given destinies.

You Are My Safe Refuge

O God, listen to my cry!
    Hear my prayer!
From the ends of the earth,
    I cry to you for help
    when my heart is overwhelmed.
Lead me to the towering rock of safety,
    for you are my safe refuge,
    a fortress where my enemies cannot reach me.
Let me live forever in your sanctuary,
    safe beneath the shelter of your wings!  

Psalm 61:1-4 NLV  


Are you feeling a bit frazzled?  Maybe I should say who hasn't been overwhelmed lately?  

These past weeks have been a whirlwind of overwhelming circumstances.  
- A sister got diagnosed with a brain aneurysm - awaiting results of brain angioplasty to determine next step....none of which are without great risk.  And the doctor said since two of my siblings have now had aneurysm's - all of the remaining siblings should be tested as their is a high probability of has having one.  (Not receiving this curse in my spirit) 

- A brother had a heart attack and had a stent put in.  His "widow maker" artery was 99% blocked! By God's grace, he's alive!!  He's only 2 years older than me. 

- Same brother's wife also had a heart attack and had stents put in and has to return for more stents in 30 days.

- A brother fell down some steps and broke his knee in half and the recovery/rehab will be long, painful and with chance of not a favorable outcome.

- Ken's father suddenly not well, went to ER and 5 day hospital stay with a serious blood infection (and still getting daily iv treatments) AND discovered a leaky heart valve awaiting doctor's visit for next step.
Ha ha!  (maybe I do look like this)

- Another sister - ongoing for 2.5 years rapid weight loss- still no diagnosis and is not able to eat much or drink more than 500 calories a day without painful side effects.  

- A brother in law with cancer and treatments are winding down.  

-I already told you this - but we have to move our stuff out of ladies basement and into storage and this weekend is the time.  It's not just moving it - we have to HEPA vacuum, wipe and spray with mold killer every box (and possibly it's contents) before we can load to store in storage unit.  The logistics surrounding all this has been intense.  

-You've heard this before - but Canyon, our dog, is still in decline.  Somedays I think I'm being selfish and keeping him alive way beyond his days.... and other days I think God will surely tell me like he has in the past when is the best time.  This is heart wrenching!!!

-Did I tell you our landlord selling the house - the sale fell through so new potential buyers came out this past weekend to look at it?  Up in the air on living situation too??? 

-Sleep deprivation is NOT my friend in all this!!! 

-Pain levels have been unbelievable.  

-Finances - we are learning daily manna!   (we still eat, have shelter and clothes on our back) 

-Hope deferred on our destiny - wondering when and sometimes if it's going to happen!  

There have been times these past couple weeks that I thought I should just check myself in somewhere or pack a bag and leave for a deserted island.  Not a bad idea? 

But God!  God is good!  He is faithful and He is our rock and our refuge!  How would we be effective at running a retreat/refuge if we hadn't had first hand experience in truly trusting God as our refuge, as our safe place!  None of this is for naught!  We realize that.  God has been taking us deeper and deeper into a relationship full of unwavering faith.  

There are so many people who are experiencing even greater trials than we are.  I am overwhelmed, to be honest, at how many faithful followers who are being tested to the limits.  I have a sense of God showing up soon to those who have been forged by fire.  Suddenly things are going to shift and become the most glorious testimony of God's goodness!  Watch & See!  


Look at the nations and watch- and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told. Habakkuk 1:5


I read Streams in the Desert Devotional - and have often shared them with you.  Here's today.....speaking to me as usual!  I pray it encourages you as well.  Just yesterday a friend said as she was praying for me, the Lord gave her a vision of us standing in the valley and their were dark clouds above us.  But then she saw the clouds were lifting and we could see clearly.  

When the cloud tarried... then the children of Israel... journeyed not (Numbers 9:19).
This was the supreme test of obedience. It was comparatively easy to strike tents, when the fleecy folds of the cloud were slowly gathering from off the Tabernacle, and it floated majestically before the host. Change is always delightful; and there was excitement and interest in the route, the scenery, and the locality of the next halting-place. But, ah, the tarrying.
Then, however uninviting and sultry the location, however trying to flesh and blood, however irksome to the impatient disposition, however perilously exposed to danger -- there was no option but to remain encamped.
The Psalmist says, "I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry." And what He did for the Old Testament saints He will do for believers throughout all ages. Still God often keeps us waiting. Face to face with threatening foes, in the midst of alarms, encircled by perils, beneath the impending rock. May we not go? Is it not time to strike our tents? Have we not suffered to the point of utter collapse? May we not exchange the glare and heat for green pastures and still waters?
There is no answer. The cloud tarries, and we must remain, though sure of manna, rock-water, shelter, and defense. God never keeps us at post without assuring us of His presence, and sending us daily supplies.
Wait, young man, do not be in a hurry to make a change! Minister, remain at your post! Until the cloud clearly moves, you must tarry. Wait, then, thy Lord's good pleasure! He will be in plenty of time! 
--Daily Devotional Commentary
An hour of waiting!
Yet there seems such need
To reach that spot sublime!
I long to reach them--but I long far more
To trust HIS time!
"Sit still, my daughter"--
Yet the heathen die,
They perish while I stay!
I long to reach them--but I long far more
To trust HIS way!
'Tis good to get,
'Tis good indeed to give!
Yet is it better still--
O'er breadth, thro' length, down length, up height,
To trust HIS will!
--F. M. N.

Take Courage! 3 Steps to Persevere!

Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for the LORD!   Psalm 31:24 

What are you facing today?  Is there a prolonged trial you are going through that doesn't see an end in sight?  

So many people are clinging to their hope in Jesus right now.  Many are in intense trials, long suffering, hope deferred on many levels and hanging on by a thread.  What do you do in times like this?  

Tuesday we got a call from the lady who has been so kind in storing our personal belongings for the past 3 years in her basement.  She told us that she had a mold test done and that there is mold, mold, mold in her basement and EVERYTHING must go!  She wants it out asap - like within a week!  Yikes!  This news put my mind in overdrive on what options we have or DON'T know about yet.  We have no place to go with this stuff other than storage or sell!  But how do we clean every single thing, throw out what we have to and sell or store within a week or so.  Not only are we hedged in on every side, the fire keeps getting hotter and the intensity more severe.  

Needless to say I didn't get to sleep Tuesday night - it was literally 6am-8am on Wednesday I finally got some sleep.   Before I fell asleep the Lord brought to mind this song again.  Earlier in the year a friend sent it to me and it really brought peace.  Music is like that!  It can really change the atmosphere and turn your emotions and thoughts into who the Lord is and what He will do!  

Kristen DiMarco
Take Courage 
Listen to it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r49V9QcYheQ

Slow down, take time
"Breathe in," He said
He'd reveal what's to come
The thoughts in His mind
Always higher than mine
He'll reveal all to come

So take courage, my heart
Stay steadfast, my soul
He's in the waiting
He's in the waiting
And hold onto your hope
As your triumph unfolds
He's never failing
He's never failing

Sing praise, my soul
Find strength in joy
Let His words lead you on
Do not forget
His great faithfulness
He'll finish all He's begun

So take courage, my heart
Stay steadfast, my soul
He's in the waiting
He's in the waiting
And hold onto your hope
As your triumph unfolds
He's never failing
He's never failing

And You who hold the stars
Who call them each by name
Will surely keep Your promise to me
That I will rise in Your victory

So take courage, my heart
Stay steadfast, my soul
He's in the waiting
He's in the waiting
And hold onto your hope
Watch your triumph unfold
He's never failing
He's never failing

So take courage, my heart
Stay steadfast, my soul
He's in the waiting
He's in the waiting
And hold onto your hope
Watch your triumph unfold
He's never failing
He's never failing

He's in the waiting
He's in the waiting
He's in the waiting



When I finally fell asleep Wednesday am, I had a dream.  It was similar to a dream I had before we had to move from the last home to the one we were in.  That dream was that there was fire in the ditch and around the entire perimeter of the yard/house.   Ken felt the Lord gave him an interpretation that though there was a definite need to move and get out of that house, we had time because the fire wasn't at the house yet.  Within a day or two our landlord had sold the house out from underneath us and we had to move asap.   

Well, the dream I had Wednesday was that Ken had just left for work.  Canyon, our dog, had to go out, so I let him outside.  I heard a bunch of noice and commotion but was too sleepy to worry about it.  I hear someone yelling in the front yard and then a fireman was pounding on the front door.  I went to the door and he said - ma'am you need to get out asap.  There is fire surrounding your whole neighborhood and even the entire area/town.  I immediately went to get changed out of my pajama's and started grabbing my purse, our laptops and was wondering what else I had to get that was important - and of course Canyon.  I woke up.   My sense was that the Lord gave me a similar dream so I could relate and understand that He is in this new circumstance we are having to deal with. I sense the firefighter was the Lord and that He would knock on our door and give us instructions.  And I believe me thinking to myself what else do I need that is important was clearly a sign to go through our things once again (remember we did this in March and got rid of 75-85% of all of it) and see what else we can give up.  

After I woke up, and feeling like the Lord gave me the interpretation I was reading my devotional Streams in the Desert.  Well actually, somebody had posted it on Facebook and I read it there first. 

Impressions – Streams in the Desert 10/19

God does give us impressions, but not that we should act on them as impressions. If the impression be from God, He will Himself give sufficient evidence to establish it beyond the possibility of a doubt.
How beautiful is the story of Jeremiah, of the impression that came to him respecting the purchase of the field of Anathoth. But Jeremiah did not act upon this impression until after the following day, when his uncle’s son came to him and brought him external evidence by making a proposal for the purchase. Then Jeremiah said: “I knew this was the word of the Lord.”
He waited until God seconded the impression by a providence, and then he acted in full view of the open facts, which could bring conviction unto others as well as to himself. God wants us to act according to His mind. We are not to ignore the Shepherd’s personal voice but, like Paul and his companions at Troas, we are to listen to all the voices that speak and “gather” from all the circumstances, as they did, the full mind of the Lord. –Dr. Simpson
“Where God’s finger points, there God’s hand will make the way.”
Do not say in thine heart what thou wilt or wilt not do, but wait upon God until He makes known His way. So long as that way is hidden it is clear that there is no need of action, and that He accounts Himself responsible for all the results of keeping thee where thou art. –Selected
“For God through ways we have not known,
Will lead His own.”
This really spoke to me because I feel both having to get our stuff out and the dream were impressions that something is definitely changing.  For the past 48 hours I have racked my brain, talked to the storage facility here, talked with friends about potential options and I still have NO answers on what we could or can do about this.  

What I do know from our history with the Lord - is that when He opens the door, it's swift and sudden.  And even though there might be work to do with the shift, it's non-striving, and much easier than us trying to figure it out.  Our hope is in Him.  Our peace is that He is leading us and will show us the way!  

When I went to do devotions on Wednesday morning, I began to read 10/18 an it was not the one I just wrote above nor the one posted.  That one was actually 10/19's.  I think God wanted me to see it because it was further instruction to "wait" on HIm.   However, reading the actual 10/18 one - spoke to me for this season and I believe for ALL OF YOU who have been going through hard times, this one will speak to you as well.

Delayed

When the sun went down, Abram fell sound asleep, and great terror overwhelmed him. Then the Lord said to Abram, “Know for certain that your descendants will be strangers in a foreign country. They will be enslaved and oppressed for four hundred years. But I will execute judgment on the nation that they will serve. Afterward they will come out with many possessions.—Gen 15:12-14 NET
An assured part of God’s pledged blessing to us is delay and suffering. A delay in Abram’s own lifetime that seemed to put God’s pledge beyond fulfillment was followed by seemingly unendurable delay of Abram’s descendants. But it was only a delay: they “came out with great substance.” The pledge was redeemed.
God is going to test me with delays; and with the delays will come suffering, but through it all stands God’s pledge: His new covenant with me in Christ, and His inviolable promise of every lesser blessing that I need. The delay and the suffering are part of the promised blessing; let me praise Him for them today; and let me wait on the Lord and be of good courage and He will strengthen my heart. —C. G. Trumbull
Unanswered yet the prayer your lips have pleaded
In agony of heart these many years?
Does faith begin to fail? Is hope departing?
And think you all in vain those falling tears?
Say not the Father hath not heard your prayer;
You shall have your desire sometime, somewhere.
Unanswered yet? Nay do not say ungranted;
Perhaps your work is not yet wholly done.
The work began when first your prayer was uttered,
And God will finish what He has begun.
If you will keep the incense burning there,
His glory you shall see sometime, somewhere.
Unanswered yet? Faith cannot be unanswered,
Her feet are firmly planted on the Rock;
Amid the wildest storms she stands undaunted,
Nor quails before the loudest thunder shock.
She knows Omnipotence has heard her prayer,
And cries, “It shall be done”—sometime, somewhere.
—Miss Ophelia G. Browning

and having done all, to stand firm. Ephesians 6:13b


Here is what I believe we are to do and what you can do to continue persevering:

1.  Keep your focus on the Lord -not on your circumstances.
2.  Stand firm - take courage!  He's in the wait 
3.  Remind yourself often - God is faithful to bring forth the promises He has spoken to you!

"Perseverance is continually realigning your heart with the leadership of Christ in the face of pressure". Mike Bickle


Prayer Requests:

Please be in prayer for Ken's father.  He went into the hospital earlier this week with a blood infection and then had tests for his heart as well.  They were concerned his heart valves were infected - but thankfully not.  He had heart valve surgery previously.  He will get out the hospital Thursday 5 days but have to do daily I.V. outpatient antibiotics still.  He just had his 84th birthday.  

Ken - to find the needed strength for this task.  Also that God would provide additional work (after this task is done) to meet our monthly financial needs.  
Michele - for energy and ability to help Ken w/o any mold effects. I have huge issues w/mold.  Ongoing prayer for complete healing to manifest and to be able to sleep!!!! 
Canyon - He is definitely getting weaker daily.  We know it's soon.  Please pray for grace and peace and to know the perfect time.  
Ministry - that God would open the doors and provide all that's needed to step into destiny.



Thank YOU so much for your ongoing support, prayers, love and care for us and our ministry.  We are honored to be able to pray for those who reach out to us.  Please let me know if you have any prayer needs.  

If you have been blessed by this ministry or feel led to support what God is doing through us - financially, below are a few options.  Your generosity and your prayer support is greatly appreciated and needed as we continue to walk in faith and God's calling.

Vision
God has given us a vision to build a retreat property along with ministry equipping center.  
The retreat portion of our ministry is to provide a safe place for pastors, lay leaders & other ministry folks to come and be refreshed & encouraged through prophetic ministry (if wanted).  We will offer private cabins with kitchens & full bathrooms, and plenty of places to roam on the property to get quiet with the Lord. 
We will offer other specialty retreats - marriage, healing, prophetic teaching & activating people into the world & health and wellness retreats and more.  

The Lord has graced us with the desire to come alongside the Church - to bring healing, deliverance & freedom to new/newer believers.  We are not wanting to replace their church, but better help them be ready to serve in their church. 
In our community building - we will eventually have a 24/7 prayer room, healing & prophetic rooms and a place for community worship services for those on the property.  

Our passion is to minister to a lost & hurting world.   To equip the saints to do the same and to be a blessing to our community and surrounding areas.  Our hopes are that we can pour out God's love in a mighty way to bring more and more souls into the Kingdom, get them discipled, called into their purpose & destiny and released to do God's business!!!!  We also have a passion to give generously to help those in need and to help others launch into their God given destinies.
