Hello, and happy Friday 13th. This is a great day to buy a boat. We received confirmation today from our fine bankers that we are approved for funding to purchase Cannibal. The money is pending a satisfactory survey for valuation purposes. We are really pumped. The boat’s owners (C.A. and Betty) will be back in town from their travels next week and we will try to get the survey done before the end of the month. Then we should be able to go ahead with the purchase. Yippeeeee!

We also have been told by a friend that she has a family member that has a vacant house in the Pensacola area and that we can stay there for free. That is just such a God thing! You just can’t make this stuff up! If all is as it seems, we will be able to stay in the house there while we are getting things squared away with the boat. How awesome is that!

In addition, another friend has loaned me all of the study materials necessary for passing the tests to renew my License. Can it get any better? I submit that it cannot. Well, we could get a knock on the door from someone who wants to buy our house. However, we know that will happen in God’s timing; so I believe that today isn’t the day for that (although … the day isn’t over yet). In the meantime we are content to marvel at God’s goodness.
