I find myself in a period of transition. I haven’t been around blogland much, because I’ve been busy cleaning out my house. We rented a 30 yard dumpster over the weekend and filled it. It was very difficult for me, but the reality is those things were just that – things, possessions. I did find some treasures among the junk, like love letters Tom wrote to me when we first started dating, a letter his mom wrote to him (she died when she was 49), pictures the kids drew and an essay my daughter wrote about me to name a few.
The reason behind all of this cleaning is that we are getting our house ready for sale. Tom got a new job and we are moving to Dallas, TX. We had prayed and processed the offer for a week to make sure this was what God wanted us to do. Through a series of events, we came to the conclusion that this was God (you can listen to the story by clicking here.)
Our church family has been very supportive. They are sad to see us go and love us very much. I appreciate the people in our church. They are generous with their time and energy. Today four ladies gave up part of their day to help get the house “show” ready. They cleaned inside and out. You can eat off the kitchen floor. I was humbled by their love and generosity. Thank you all for your help.
Transition can be hard. The other side of transition is good. On the other side you have a birth – a new baby. On the other side of this transition is a new job - a new adventure.
Forgive me if I haven’t been around much. I have a deadline I set to finish the final edits of my book so that it can be released this fall. I’m trying to sell a home, pack non-essentials, find a new job and a place to live. These are good things. This is exciting times. Life is on fast forward. So don’t forget about me. I’ll try to visit you all when I can. Know that I appreciate all of you.
