Lots going on here....

Let first me start by saying " Hello" to all of you that come in and see whats happening in the Allen Household....
This is such a crazy time for us, w/ wrapping up end of the year homeschooling stuff, getting ready for summer camps and all of the busyness that summer brings into our already hectic schedule. Also, my term with the MOMS Club is coming to an end in June.
We have 4 family trips planned, Kaits big 14th birthday, some great are friends headed here next week, & this is just April!!
We will soon have some transitional things happening around here as well...For instance, as you all know, my mother and sister have joined our family & have now been with us for 2 months. I have just received news that they are planning to return to N.M. While I am sad, I know that God has a Divine plan, & He doesn't always agree with me about how I think things should happen, so once again He has shown me that He is in control and not me in my "Infinite Wisdom" (thank goodness) . I will miss them dearly, but I know that they came for a season and I just have to believe that they received here what they were meant to, and pray that they go back a sew some Godly seeds.
God really is so good to us however none of us are immune to drought. We have seemingly been under a spiritual attack in our finances ... There a few things don't warrant mentioning, however one got us right where we hurt...
We had our septic system pump freeze during the ... well, the freeze. So it filled up after the rains . We had it all pumped out last week and then a few day later the alarm went off again. We called them back out and were told that a wall of the tank fell in due to it swelling w/ all the water, so now we have to replace it. The price will fall somewhere around $6, 000......... My initial reaction??................
WHYYYYYY LORD WHYYY???
then once I woke up and Chris put a wet towel on my forehead I began to hear the Lord whisper, "Is this to big for Me"?? & " Have I ever forsaken you"??? .." "No Lord, you have never" So now we are waiting on the Lord ( and an also estimate from our homeowners Insurance!!!)
To be continued.........

* A Trip to Mexico w/ 4 of your girlfriends ... $600.00
*Having a full house and the septic system breakdown... $6000.00
* Having your mother & sister move in with your family ....... Priceless
