What a busy weekend we had! We made a trip down south to load and bring back the rest of our household items. The house down there is now completely empty and our house here is bursting at the seams!! We can not get into our garage or room downstairs. I have one tiny pathway to the laundry room. Our livingroom is very overcrowded (our dining room table is under the couch with the legs off!!) The closing date is set for August 15th.. The buyers have a final walk through, so hopefully nothing will pop up to delay closing in any way.
Although the weekend was busy, we managed to get in a little visiting time. Baby girl was able to meet her great grandparents. The cousins were able to spend some time together. We were able to see some of our church 'family' when they came over to help load the van (yes, they still feel like family even though we have been gone for almost one year now!!)
When we arrived back home, we had a good crowd from church to help unload for us. It is such a blessing to leave a church where the members feel like family, to finding another church with the same great group of families that you bond with instantly. We didn't know how difficult it would be to find a church with the same family feeling and 'love'....but God, in His goodness, directed us to the very church we needed!!
Now, after we take a breath, we will start to seriously look for a permanent home here. We have laid out our desires before God and wait on Him to show us where He wants us!
God has been so good to us. We see so much of His handiwork throughout this entire process (especially over the past year and a half). We could tell you time and time again how God has worked so many details out (and many at the very last minute!!) but it was always His timing that we waited for and had to trust He would work all things out. Hubby and I have grown so much throughout this experience. God brings things in our lives to show us our need for Him, and to help mold us more like Him. I'm so thankful for my Heavenly Father, His love for me, His mercy and blessings He continually showers our family with. We are so truly blessed :)
