moving forward

The past week has just been a weird one. Very tiring, emotionally exhausting, physically overwhelming, and mentally challenging. I started out last Monday with an early morning ultrasound on my aorta and blood vessel leading to the aorta, followed by a photographer coming to take pictures of the house, followed by our normal jobs + responsibilities and the final big...

Psalm 27:13-14 NKJV I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the Lord In the land of the living. Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord! Over the past few weeks as we’ve gotten rid of so many of our belongings and as we’ve painted, cleaned, sorted, and...

I’m finding it hard to get time to process my thoughts lately, but I really want to as I know I’ll want to look back on this time and see the things that I learned. So here goes . . .

If my brain was not attached, I’m sure it would get left behind on most days as I can’t keep up with myself let alone my husband and my children. So when my boys bring home notes from school that say that Ezra has...

His love for us

On this sunny Monday morning, my to do list is out of control, my brain is heading in one direction, and my heart in another. So we’ll see if writing helps to get me flowing in one direction . . . Mark and I are taking a class at church called “Taking Your Place in Christ.” And I’ve wanted to take a class like this for sometime, so it seemed...

I missed this week’s posting on Monday due to going to the dentist, and since then, I’ve just been majorly overwhelmed. I realize that moving is in the top five of most stressful events in life, so moving overseas is expected to be a bit stressful. And when you work in the accounting field, the first few months of the year are always stressful at work....
