Life of an Ordinary Aussie Woman

Blessings Abounding!

Moving house…


Is this a blessing, when there is SO much work involved?

I think you’ll agree that YES, indeed a move can be a blessing from God!  

Have you ever experienced a big move or transition, and had it lovingly confirmed by God that it was the right thing?

Life of an Ordinary Aussie Woman humbly began in January of this year, after moving house to Moama, due to volatile neighbours…amongst other turmoil…

The home in which we lived truly was a refuge and a place of healing…but I never sensed it was long term.  Well we have experienced our Exodus and have been lovingly provided with a new, wonderful home near my sister and the children’s cousins…We all felt instantly comfortable here in our new home and all feel a sense of security and peace…along with excitement!


Our house in Moama was a place of healing and coming to terms with the finality of divorce…it also was a place of some isolation…

But now we are beginning a new chapter in our lives…however to think that it will be all blessings and without challenges is na├»ve and unrealistic…

But blessing have been abounding, and so much so that I have been somewhat amazed!
 
There is a part of me that thinks…why am I SO amazed at the amazing hospitality, love, favour, friendship and generosity that I have been experiencing…BECAUSE I do know and believe that GOD IS GOOD!  When huge confirming blessings happen why am I so amazed?  However I also enjoy being awed, and being able to share with family and friends about my experiences J  Indeed if I was to begin blogging about them all here it would take quite a while!

So I’m not going to write about them individually here…rather I will leave you with the assurance that GOD IS INDEED GOOD and satisfies all our needs in His timing…

What challenges will come I do not know?  I can only be sure that they will, alongside God’s faithfulness and blessings!

So from my new Ordinary Aussie home I send you my love and assurance that all is well x

Melanie!

Thanks for the encouragement. We have our home up for sale and have been slowly packing. What a nice reminder that moving is a blessing. Have a great day.
