Where We Are Now

After finding and remediating mold twice in our Colorado home, we abandoned ship in October 2008. Because of the high levels of exposure, our entire family was affected. After months of seeing different specialists for all of the problems, we came to Arizona to begin comprehensive treatment to rid our bodies of the toxic buildup. In August 2009 we moved into a larger home, four bedrooms, south of Tucson, north of Mexico. I am doing my daily radio program/ writing from that location. Thanks for praying for us. We really feel it.

We looked at a beautiful home last night. Perfect for us. Our lease is up at the end of July. We're scrambling, and have been scrambling to find something we can live in. This house had both a sheriff and a border patrol agent living just down the street--I liked that. It was built on 1.5 acres, beautiful views, had a fenced yard, four bedrooms, three baths, a huge garage. Everything we could ask for. Even all electric, which we need for our chemical sensitivity. The master bedroom closet was even big enough for me to put my "office." And it wasn't too far away from the grocery store.

There was just one problem. When I walked in my throat closed and it was hard to talk, my eyes watered and breathing became difficult. Just little things. We've learned, over time, not to ignore stuff like this. We bought a couch a few months ago thinking it would be fine. They delivered a different one with all the chemicals sprayed on it without us knowing. The next morning we woke up knowing.

This is life for us now. We received the final rejection of our health insurance appeal. I'm paying the doctor and lab test bills in installments. The lease on the house we're in is up at the end of July. We desperately need something bigger, but trying to find an all-tile house with all electric appliances with some room on either side of it, plus no pesticide usage and that isn't 40 minutes from the grocery store and has no water damage (is built by a reputable builder) is difficult. We've been looking since late May. We've expanded our search to Phoenix and beyond. Every house we find is either rented or is too expensive or has something that would compromise our detox.

I know it sounds like we're picky. That we're trying to find the perfect house. Not true. It's just that I know we won't get better in the wrong house.

So maybe you could pray with us that God would drop something in our laps. Soon. Until then, we keep asking, seeking, and knocking, wondering when this traveling vagabond show will end. Wondering if what we're going through is of value to the kingdom. Wading through cactus to find grace.

The LORD knows all your needs even more than you do. May He lead you to the healthiest home possible. As Donnamo said, can't wait for His story for your life to unfold,
though the wait is so tough for you.

I love hearing "wading through the cactus to find grace." Who else needs more grace but those wading through cactus. I can think of a couple of scriptures I can pray your way. In the meantime, keep the faith...your life is an example for so many. 1 Peter 5:8-11

As a prof at Moody used to say, We serve a God that owns the cattle on a thousand hills. Keep the faith, and His timing.
