Memorial Box Monday

(What is Memorial Box Monday? It was started by a blog friend of mine. She answers questions about it here. Memorial Box Monday is a way to record all the times that God has answered prayer in amazing ways for your family.)

So, as you know if you've been reading this blog for the past week or so, God has sometimes used sunbeams to send me a hug. We have been praying for a long time that once we moved here, that God would lead us to the church that He wanted us to be a part of.

Last week, we attended a church I had driven past on the way to the doctor when Kate and Jordan both had medical issues. We liked the church but didn't have much time to look over the information because we were getting Ryan ready to leave for bo*tcamp. The following morning, God used these sunbeams to hug me.

Later in the week, Jillian showed me something she was doing with the bulletin from the church we had attended. I turned it over, and saw this:

Doesn't it seem as if the sunbeams are shining right over the church--kinda pointing to it? We are still praying about where God wants us...but it 'seems' like He is pointing us to that church. :) It was such an amazing thing. Obviously, I didn't even notice the sunbeams on the front of the bulletin that Sunday as we sat in church. But after experiencing them on Monday, I saw the bulletin and a lightening bolt went through me. So, if God continues to point us in the the direction of that church, this bulletin will go in the Memorial Box.

I love those moments when I feel God speaking in His "still small voice".

That is WAY cool!
And I love your field trip to see the pilgrims! ;) Wish we could go too! It's a little far for us. We'll just make the paper collars when Thanksgiving comes, I guess!
Those starfish on the beach are AMAZING! Your beaches are so very different from ours!
I love love love the pic of all the kiddos on the bench! BEAUTIFUL!
Your children are sunbeams in themselves!!!!!

YES, friend--He will absolutely lead and guide you to the right place. You will KNOW where that is, you will have absolute peace in your hearts...maybe you do already :)

Despite all your many "life adventures or detours", things always seem to fall into place. I definitely think your faith makes a huge difference. I'm so happy for your family.

That's so cool. I love when God gives us those little winks. We can so easily miss them if we aren't paying attention!
