Happy Family

As happy as we are in this Easter Sunday picture, there is a lot of stress for us right now. We found out yesterday we need to have the house ready for showing on Wednesday...this Wednesday.

Then we are actually moving on next Thursday. It's hard to believe how fast this whole thing is moving. I mean, I am excited and I know God is going to keep us safe and everything, but it is difficult not to just breakdown constantly.

On the other hand, this is really our time in the wilderness before getting to a promised land. Last night I got so stressed out that I needed a minute to just be by myself and relax and think. Then God lays on me that this work is all for a purpose. Just stay the course and it will be okay. Just imagine how great it will feel to finally be settled in at Pine Lake.

So, in the words of the great Bill Murray in What About Bob, baby-steps to the door...baby-steps to the elevator...baby-steps onto the elevator...AAAAHHHHHHHH!!!

Just kidding. We'll be fine.

It's awesome to see you are stepping out in faith. I'm glad you had some time to blog. I will keep you in my prayers. Good luck on the showing, I hope your home sells quickly and at the right price. Moving can be tough.

In Christ

It's amazing what a tripod and a timer can get you. There were several duds, but we finally realized that Leah would look anywhere we had that mylar balloon from church so we put it behind the camera. That my friends is called "stra-tegery."
