Alright…so I fell off the blogging planet for a few weeks! I had a few things to do…pack up all our junk…find a house to rent…put all our junk in a u-haul…get the flu the day we’re moving…unload all our junk…unpack all our junk…arrange all our junk…and then…feel like we are home! WOW! What a crazy few weeks! Here’s what I have realized. We have so much stuff…and honestly-I am one to get rid of things easily. How is it that every time we move, we get there and get rid of stuff…then when it comes time to move again…we still fill up the uhaul full?!?! I have a dear friend, Anne, who moved from Oklahoma a few months ago and only had like 38 boxes. Now granted, she and Chris have no children, but come on…I wished this past week we didn’t have so much stuff. We can’t take it to Heaven with us…so why do we continue to haul it all over the country?
Okay…enough of my tangent-we are here…God gave us a great little rental right around the corner from the church. It is a cute little house, built in 1930! I love it…can’t afford to buy it…but love it! I’ll try to post pictures later! Thank you all for praying us here…and continuing to pray that we settle in quickly and the girls make friends! We went to dinner at one of the pastors’ houses Saturday. They have three daughters our girls’ ages, and they homeschool. The girls seemed to click easily. It made going to church the next morning less nerve-racking. They had familiar faces to look for! It blessed this mother’s heart!
So I will try to do better with this blog thing. Our pastor really hit home yesterday about the fear of failure. I feel really inadequate to write anything worth reading…and had just yesterday told Blake I thought I was in over my head with this thing. But Pastor Pete reminded us of the Scripture in Exodus where God tells Moses that he will never leave him and is holding his right hand. So, as incapable as I feel, I think this is out of my comfort zone and I need to do it for that reason! I will never know if I don’t try!
SOOO…bear with me…thanks for leaving comments and encouraging words! If I don’t respond it is because I am still trying to figure this thing out! I am not the most technically literate person on the planet. So, come take this adventure of new beginnings and new challenges with me! It could be fun…especially with God holding my right hand!
