It’s going to be a crazy, busy, and work filled weekend.  We move tomorrow.

If you’ve moved, you know how much is wrapped up in that little sentence.

If you’ve moved a large family, you know how much is wrapped, hidden, and tucked into  that little sentence.

If you’ve moved a large homeschooling family of fifteen years (K-12th grade instructional materials), you know that how much is wrapped, hidden, tucked, filed, stored, and shamefully laughs at you from in that little sentence.

Chai latte is called for, clearly.

Even after a move to another state a year and a half ago, we still have way too much stuff.  I look forward to purging as we settle into our very own home for the first time.  Though we’ve been married almost twenty years, we’ve never owned a house.  Being in the camp industry and being leadership, we’ve always lived on camp in camp housing.   Ugly, beautiful, workable, whatever… it’s always been a huge blessing to live on camp.  Many pros.

There are many cons, though, too, when you don’t own your home.

Today, I am grateful the LORD brought us a house to be ours, to make into our home, to use for His glory, to minister out of as a family, and to settle some roots here in the East Mountains of New Mexico.

The weekend is daunting, but He’s got it.

And I’ve got Him.  And the chai He gave me.          😉

What are you up to this weekend?

Congratulations to you and your family! We are waiting on the Lord for our own home, and know that His timing is always perfect. God bless and happy moving!!

Oh, Jackie! You’ll have to come back and read the story of how God brought this house. We’ve been looking for 10.5 months. He did a mighty work.

Just prayed for you, a house, and peace until He brings it!

This sounds a little like my life as a military wife. We move around and live in what housing is provided to us. The moves do help us to declutter, and I think if I never moved I would have way too much stuff. I think some day, when my husband is done with the military we will finally buy. a home

Best of luck to you on your move! I hope it all goes smoothly.
