My Week of Insanity!

For those of you who have sold a house while maintaining a normal schedule with children and life, my hat’s off to you.  It is not for the faint of heart! My summer has been full of decluttering, preparing, cleaning, and “staging” my house while remembering that 3 adorable little boys continue to live in it. They seem to be doing just fine with everything, however I am sort of a basket case!

I’ve been drinking extra coffee and drinking in extra grace…so thankful for both!   Through it all, I know my God has been with me, and I won’t lie, I’m pretty sure He’s held me up and wound me up like the energizer bunny at times in order to get things done because I have been going NONSTOP and I have no idea how it’s all come together! And I’m very thankful for His strength.

I’m also very thankful for awesome neighbors who have offered up their home as a place of refuge during showings and who have offered to help when they can. Last week was a huge challenge for me: we put our house on the market, my husband worked very long hours, t-ball was in full swing, showings started, and we were quite possibly out of the house more often than we were in the house!  And for a homebody, that is not easy.  My house became something like a museum for others to enjoy rather than our comfortable home. So to those of you who have been praying for me, let me say a big fat THANK YOU!  One day, hopefully very soon, things will settle down (before they get crazy again with the actual move) and my mind will stop spinning.  Until then, I’m thankful for His faithfulness and that He never lets go of me.

“You Never Let Go” by Matt Redman”

Oh no, You never let go
Through the calm and through the storm
Oh no, You never let go
In every high and every low
Oh no, You never let go
Lord, You never let go of me”
