This has been a crazy week. I feel like every time I praise God on my blog for something working out, the next day it falls apart. I know it is the devil trying to have his way with me. I know there is always a warfare going on. I have to make the decision to choose Him in the storm.
As you can tell, we have been busy. My mother has been here helping me going through everything. The buyers for our house were graciously going to let me stay in the house until I left, but Josh's company had other thoughts.
The house is suppose to close on the 22, but Josh's company has to have ownership of the house for a full 48 hours. So, I have to be out completely the 20th.
We have been busy. It has been stressful, to say the least. It is crazy, to lessen your life to a 5 foot by 5 foot box to send over, or a 10 foot by 20 foot storage building. Which sounds pretty easy, but that is not very big, and it has proven to be pretty hard trying to figure out which things to get rid of.
That is where the apology comes in. I have had to make many tough decisions as to what to sell, what to keep, and what to save. Wow! we were so blessed by amazing people when we got married!
It has been so much fun to go through everything that people gave us. We have really enjoyed everything that was given to us. I really enjoyed getting to write all the thank you notes and take the opportunity to tell everyone how special they are to us, but in saying that I am having to get rid of some of the amazing gifts that were given to us.
Please, please do not take this as we are not grateful. We totally are and were. Thank you so much for thinking about us and giving us so many things we have used daily the last three years.
It truly has been a stressful, but amazing experience going through everything, talking about all the memories with the things and the people who have given them to us, and realizing how TRULY BLESSED we are!
That is where Mamma has spent her Mother's Day. She has graciously helped me most of the weekend go through everything, price for garage sale, and talk about all the memories. Like so many times in my life she has chosen me over any of her desires. She truly is an awesome example of a Godly Woman. I am so blessed to call her MAMMA.
When I get stressed during this storm, I just need to pause and realized it is all His plan, and I need to live in it.
I need to make decisions to help His plan live through me. Today, when going though everything I kept thinking about all the storm victims from two weeks ago, I also kept thinking about all the things we have in life that bog us down. So as I reflect on this week, I want to remember to always try to be in His plan.
