What do you think?

Will we move or will we stay?

Will we move this month or next month?

Will we move into the small duplex or the small house?

Will we need to pay for extra storage or will we find some on our own?

Will we save $150 a month or $225 a month on rent?

Will we rent for 6 months, 1 year or more?


**If you know the answers to any of these questions, could you *please* clue me in!!

We are right in that frustrating waiting period of a day or two. In a day or two, many of these questions will be answered. I would really like for them to all be answered today - patience is not my thing - but I know it will most likely not work out that way. I will have to wait.

Wait.

Sometimes it honestly feels like I am on permant "waiting" status. Yet I do know the Lord is growing me through all this. I know He is. I am learning that I really do trust the Lord, I really do trust my dh to take care of us. I am used to just taking care of things myself. Yet I feel a bit helpless in this situation - nothing is working out as I would have planned. Nothing. Yet, amazingly, I feel at peace.

I look around my current home, see the half packed boxes *everywhere* ~ and I feel peace.

I look at my almost empty freezer, watching our supply of freezer meals slip away ~ yet I feel peace.

I think ahead to the many things that will need to be done in the next few weeks, the packing, the unpacking, the organizing, the traveling, the no-nap days, the lack-of-schedule weeks ~ and I honestly do feel peace.


I know we will get through this ~ and we will prosper. We will grow. We will be molded more like Him. Amazing.

So I wait...
*Michigan Momma*

p.s. Okay, I stress sometimes, but in the grand scheme of things, I stress *way* less than I used to ~ so I AM growing and learning and stretching. God *does* have me right in the palm of His hand!! ~MM~

Princess,

Just remember not to lean on your own understanding, but to acknowledge him in everything you do and he will direct and guide your path, Dean's path and the path of our little grandchildren. Remember that you can only do so much. Then leave the results to our God. Love you Princess!!!

He knows what He's doing. He'll let you know when you need to.

Understanding is rarely in our "job" description, which is why FAITH is crucial.

Love you sis.

Sweetheart,
I'm very proud of how you are leaning on God in all of this. I can really "SEE" your faith in all of the uncertainty that surrounds you. LOVE feeling His peace, it is His gift to you!
