It's been a long time since I've posted! Life has been busy! Sorting through 22yrs. worth of "stuff", even when we have never been pack rats, is a lot of work. More and more I realize how blessed we are...we have so much in this country, but in some ways, I think that's also a curse. We have been too consumed, well, maybe distracted is a more accurate word, by our stuff. It's felt really good to clean things out. We still have so much to do, but we're well on our way! We are showing our house 3 times this week and praying for God's provision when it comes to selling our house. This is a tough market for selling, BUT GOD has it under control! 


I  began homeschooling our two youngest. We thought it would be easier during the move if they were already on the "same page" as the school they will be attending when we are in Ghana. WOW! That's all I can say! Easier for them, but kudos to all the moms out there who have been homeschooling! I know there is an adjustment period, but I'm not going to lie, it's tough being mom & teacher at the same time! 


I came across a quote by Louie Giglio yesterday, "The Father doesn't give life directions in one big bundle, because the goal is knowing Him, not the plan." So many times in the last months as we're preparing for our move, I've wanted the whole plan! When will our house sell? When will we get all our support raised? What will we miss while we're gone (life stuff: graduations, weddings, etc...)? As the reality of moving begins to settle in, I'll be honest and tell you that I'm nervous, a little scared and excited.  Yet, I know I didn't come across this quote by accident! God knows my heart, he knows my fears, but he also wants me to trust HIM with all of that! Not worry about the plan and seeing the finish line, but just for me to put my focus on HIM and trust that he loves me and has my best & HIS glory in mind! I am so thankful that He knows me and understands me and that NOTHING is too hard for him!!


Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.  Matthew 6:8
