a new phase begins

Image hosting by TinyPic



this will be the last post from our cottage ... i think these last few days might be a wee bit busy! *smile* ...

i am feeling a little of every emotion imagineable ... we have loved our house, yet as i strip away familiar wall hangings and the rooms start to "empty" of us ... i realize again that a home is what a person puts into it - not the actual structure ... we are the beating heart of this building, not the other way around ... and our hearts will go on beating in our cozy rental bungalow ...

my faith has been stretched and exercised ... cobwebs around my heart have been dusted away ... we are entering another phase in our lives ...

many tasks await ... so i must be off ... i covet your prayers ...

oh, does anyone have any more boxes i could borrow?

And we await your postings from your new home!

Imagine my surprise and delight when I got the mail yesterday! Thank you for the CD. To this day I had not seen the GMA tape. So I watched last night - what a hoot!

And now that I know where you live, and have a map even, Roger and I may just show up on your doorstep!

Thanks again for uplifting my spirits with such a timely verse.

much love~

I pray that as you enter new walls that you will find greater peace for though you leave a piece behind there's a whole new view of God's greater blessing for you!

Blessings for a good and uneventful move! And will be watching for new posts from the new location! May you be able to just rest for awhile after you arrive...the work always waits, so take time to relax too!

I'm praying things are going well.

Fred said...

Since I don't have any boxes, will a prayer do? Best of luck moving.

Ginger said...

You make is sound quite exciting at this point. I'm saying a prayer for you and waiting for pictures of the new place. But wow, the picture with this post is inviting!

Growing up having moved every few years(Military) it was all too easy to leave one place for another. Now that I have left the service and have my own family I have found it difficult to leave a house. All the "firsts" that have occured in those places with my boys, first steps, first words and so on make that so much a part of our lives.

I hope your move goes smoothly and that you are quickly settled in to your new home.
