Proverbs 24:3-4

By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.

Another addition

I have been putting off this post for some time now, but felt I needed to ask for prayer and who better to ask than those who care, right?!
My Dad, "Pops" has come to live with us.
We don't know for how long.
Things have been going well so far, I don't want to paint a dreary picture by any means.
It's just an adjustment.
We are looking for work for him and eventually a home of his own.
He's given Eric power of attorney, and by the grace of God Eric's been able to handle his affairs.
I have never felt to close to my husband. I have learned so much about mercy though Eric and his heart. The Lord has really blessed me with such a devoted man.
The best part about having Pops here is he is able to have a relationship with the kids.
It's been great for him to get to know them and vise versa, especially since they have only seen one another once a year and only for a day visit.
It's been hard for me to see my childhood, parts of which I would rather have keep forgotton.
It's a good reminder of why I parent differently and more of a reminder that I have so far to go still.
Having Pops around has been pleasant, it's been nice to see such a prideful and stubborn man soften and live here under respect to Eric and I and our home. That's a side that I was sure we would battle, but that has not been the case at all. It's been nice to see a younger version of my Dad and remember some good times of my youth.
Please pray for us and for my Dad.

Much love to you all!

How incredible are YOU?!? Your home is like a halfway house! :-) Seriously, I think so highly of you both for opening up your homes for whatever the reasons. Entertaining angels unaware. What a testament.

I'll be praying for you.
