Forget not.

Yesterday we drove back from visiting Lew's family in Indiana and came home to an email that said our final approval came through on our loan for the house. I am absolutely blown away by how smooth this process has been. God has provided for EVERY. SINGLE. STEP of the way. Literally. And I am truly in awe. In awe of how God has provided grace over this past year of being without a "home" of our own. The blessing my parents have been to share their home with us and our busy/noisy toddler (grin) and the blessing family and friends have been to encourage us and pray for us. And here we are, exactly a week away from our settlement date, and I am just so thankful.

It was perfectly fitting that I read this in Deuteronomy 6 this morning:

“And when the LORD your God brings you into the land that he swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give you—with great and good cities that you did not build, and houses full of all good things that you did not fill, and cisterns that you did not dig, and vineyards and olive trees that you did not plant—and when you eat and are full, then take care lest you forget the LORD, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.
(Deuteronomy 6:10-12 ESV)

That is my prayer. "Lord don't let me forget that all of this is from YOUR hand. This is YOUR provision, a house that you built, and you will fill. Please don't let me forget your faithfulness and provision." God has surly been good, even in the waiting.
