After spending 54 years from birth to 2008 living in Iowa I was presented with an opportunity to live in Fairbanks, Alaska. My blog is a diary of the adventure to get to Alaska, day to day life in Alaska, as well as facts for loved ones left behind in the Lower 48. Enjoy.

God is so good!

Today was a successful day and we are really tired, yet exhilirated. We emptied out the two sheds and filled our two garbage bins plus took about 8 garbage bags to a friend's garbage bin. Anna came over and helped with the above as well as hauling boxes and totes out of the basement. We got the totes with flowers to the church and filled my van with things for the rummage which is next weekend. Yes, I know gas prices are high and hauling around extra weight probably isn't very smart, but ya know when you have the help, you git as much done as possible.

I got a whim to put out a sign in the front yard advertising our place for rent. It was pretty cheesy - tag board stating "4 rent Nice House - much nicer than this sign!" It was up about 3 hours and we got two phone calls. They both came at the same time to look at it, boxes and all cluttering the house. The second gal took it! She works and her husband stays home with their 4 children. She lives a block over from us in a smaller house which costs them as much as $500 a month to heat during the winter. They plan on putting up a swingset and a pool. It's comforting to know that a family will be able to enjoy our home.

The other great part is that they are willing to take care of Peaches, our beloved cat. Peaches attempts to avoid children at any cost, so it could be interesting for all of them.

Thus ends a productive, blessed day. We are SO relieved that we have found a renter AND to have the shed cleaned out.

Well...time for me to take a shower and do some fine tuning on my sermon. It should be easy to continue working on the sermon, having God bless us in such an awesome way, taking a big weight off of our shoulders.
