Thank you God for helping my kids sleep. I know that everyone’s minds are racing and unable to focus. Tomorrow is the big day when we move into “the BIG House” as Luke calls it–not sure if he thinks we are moving into a big house, wishes it was a big house or wants to live in UM stadium.
We have stayed in 4 different places in less than a week. We can’t find anything. We all want to just have a spot and not feel like we need to move.
These last few weeks have made us all think about what we “really” need in life. I now know that I can simplify to a greater extent when we unpack boxes. We did get rid of lots and lots of things when we found out we were moving but now I know what I need. As I go along in life I want to remember this time and continue to re-evaluate how much I need.
By this time tomorrow I hope to be cooking up something wonderful for dinner–our “kitchen” in the hotel has 2 burners–only ONE works. I hope to be watching the kids explore the new backyard. I hope we can all discover our own spots in the new house. I pray that my house will become a home, a sanctuary and a welcoming place to all who enter.
I pray for patience. I know that I will want it all done now.
God thank you for this awesome opportunity to serve you in ways that are obvious and in ways that you have yet to reveal.
