It's been a crazy few days, and boy, am I tired.

In the past 3 days we have...

  • Finished packing most of the house.
  • Picked up a truck and packed it full of boxes and furniture.
  • Prepared school work for the girls to do while I was gone for 2 days.
  • Drove for 12 hours with Chuck to our new (let's keep it vague here) living destination.
  • Unloaded the truck with Chuck in the cold night (after driving all day).
  • Returned the truck and looked at houses with the realtor.
  • Got approved for the new loan.
  • Made an offer on a house!!!!!
  • Now flying back home to finish up the rest of the house.
  • Get ready for the last load for this weekend.
It has been a CRAZY week. Let's just say...God is good. And we couldn't do this without our support system. (Thank you!)

I can't believe how fast you guys are moving...somewhat like a speeding bullet. Take some time to rest, my friend.

Praise our faithful Lord! He will give you both the strength to get all of this done. Seems to be going very smooth. Quite a team..God, you and Chuck.

Praying (and missing) for you like crazy. Sorry I've been a bad bloggie lately. Hopefully after the holidays and move we can try to get back started with some type of corporate prayer or bible study. I miss reading your thoughts and words. Have a very Merry Christmas sweet friend. I am so happy for you that the sell is out of the way!

What an amazing Christmas gift for your family! God's timing is perfect! I'm praying that all still moves along quickly and easily for you :)
If I don't see you before you're in your new home...I'll see you next time we visit your new town!!!

Praying you all will have the energy and joy for these last steps.

Must confess, I am a little bummed. LAST load THIS weekend? When I tell Earthgirl, she's going to cry. OK, I admit: me, too.

So thankful that we are so exhausted and tired! Ho gracious of God to "fight" for us! He indeed is Emanuel! Looking forward to exciting things in the future and trusting God for just the right "nest to feather!" Exciting times!

Crystal said...

I am glad that everything is going smoothly! YAY! Things started moving and really went fast! I will continue to pray that it will go smoothly!

After your long long wait it is nice to see everything falling into place for you!

Homegrown Schoolhouse said...

WOW- YOU MOVE FAST! I bet you made that realtor's day when you bought that house at this time of year and in this market- probably an answered prayer on their end too.

How exciting to go straight into a house of your own without the pain of renting and moving again. Can't wait to see pictures!

How exciting. A great time to BUY house, for sure. I can't wait to see it. Are you pleased with it?
