When I arrived at the cottage I bought unseen on Prince Edward Island I was afraid of getting the U-Haul truck stuck in the pretty red muddy driveway so I backed it off the road and thankfully it was dry there. Than, I began to pack everything up the driveway into the cottage. I had brought my wheelbarrow with me and as soon as I unpacked it I used it. The next day I was blessed with sufficient strength to pack both the treadle sewing machine that is in a cabinet and a china cabinet that is taller than myself up the driveway and up several stairs before entering the cottage. After two days of unpacking I had unloaded everything except my 500 pound, six foot long floor loom. Five men loaded the loom for me. I'm just a middle aged woman so what was I going to do? I prayed trusting when the time came God would show me how. The night before I needed to unload it I saw what to do. A north west wind was blowing hard and in the morning the soft ground would be frozen. It was minus four at daybreak. I backed up the truck and extended the ramp onto the deck. Using cardboard and some small appliance rollers I pushed and slid the loom. From the ramp onto the deck and up into the house I lifted one end of the loom and I was given sufficient strength to lift it high enough so I could continue to slide it. "I will strengthen you and help you." Isaiah 41: 10. On this same day I needed to return the U-Haul and purchase a vehicle as there is no taxi or bus service where I live. I had been watching kijiji for weeks and I had been in contact with the local vehicle insurance company. Within an hour I made the prayerful decision to purchase a used truck. It was well past suppertime when we got back home. The next morning we experienced our first atlantic spring snow storm. It was snowing and there were high winds. I was so thankful to be home and not on the roads. I will remember this move forever and I hope my daughter does to. The love of God towards me shows me what He wants me to be.
