U-Turn

How life changes... My dad has been working at Dove Christian Academy. but he's changed his profession to fix and flips! Fix and flips are houses one buys, fixes, up, and resells (hopefully for a profit). It's been an interesting transition, but God is good. So he's been working with Mike (who already does this) and hopefully will buy his own home sometime in the near future...

I'll admit that sometimes I wonder why God moved us out to Colorado. So here is the Cochran family, way out in Denver, CO, missing their old church and friends in Georgia, and beginning to wonder why about a lot of things. Well, I know Mike loves having us living with him, and has even said we're the best thing that happened to him since he's been in Colorado (he's never had a family) so I guess that could be one reason we came out here (ie: to bless him). And I know we've blessed some other homeschoolers in the area. But the best part to me is that God has tons of other reasons--we just don't know them yet. Oh, and another one is that my dad can make more here doing construction than he could ever make in GA. So it goes... My mind begins to question God, and then he shows me all the blessings he's given us.

Thanks for your prayers and thoughts. God bless!

Hmmm. I'm sorry to hear that things have not been looking up over there, Katie. Though, it is very good that you can remember and be encouraged by remembering that God has great plans even in the midst of what looks like a flop. I'll be praying for you:)And, e-mail any time you wanna talk!

Questions, questions, questions. Yes, I have many questions in my life right now too, Katie. We must trust, wait, and watch. We are only given enough light for the next step.

I do not ask my cross to understand,
My way to see,
Better is darkness just to feel Your hand,
And follow Thee.

Praying for you,
Jordan
