It's been a crazy week! Stress tries to run high, but we keep fighting it off. We've only got two weeks left before the movers come to pack us off to Mississippi. (The Army chose for us this time!) We've been trying to cram in as much 'Florida' as we can: going to the beach, re-visiting favorite restaurants, SeaWorld (the girls early birthday present). The Realtors have already started showing the house - ever tried to maintain a pristine 'open' house while planning a move? It's just not natural!
We've also had other stressers along the way:
From the big - My grandma has not been well. She may need more care than is possible to receive at home. We're just going to have to pray and trust that God will show us what is best, and that everyone in the family will find peace with the outcome.
To the 'big to some' - "Mom? Will the butterflies hatch before we move?" The girls science project is very important to them. They have cared for those little buggers since they were larvae in a jar! (I gotta wonder if those poor mail-carriers know what they're toting around half the time.)
Anyway, I heard a new song from Amy Grant - 'Better Than A Hallelujah'. It spoke such peace to my heart that I wanted to share it. Every time I listen, the world seems to stand still and cares just melt away.
I imagine my Heavenly Father looking at me, all haggard and worn, giving me a little grin and saying, "What have you gotten yourself in to now?" Then He wraps me in a loving embrace and whispers, "It's Ok, child. Daddy will make it all better."
