Mouvman Avans Non Jezi (Moving forward in Jesus)
We have been flying around town like crazy people making sure everyone has their teeth pulled, their immunizations up to date, their eyes checked and perscriptions updated. We feel a bit insane.
The list of things to do is steadily dwindling though, so we must be doing something right. Troy has the most pressure since he leaves first, but lucky for him he has an excellent personal assistant. ;)
During the times that we feel overwhelmed with the lists and the impending move we are trying to remember that we are not alone. There is a verse in Jeremiah that says "Behold, I am the Lord...is anything too difficult for me?" The answer of couse is "NO" none of this is too hard for Him! So, we just need to keep reminding ourselves not to try to do it without praying and trusting in His strength to carry us through.
A while back our pastor's wife sent us an e-card that said "It is not the size of the mountain, but the strength of the mountain mover." Those reminders are important in these busy and somewhat daunting days.
In these last few days that Troy is here we may skip a few blog updates. We want to stare at each other instead of the computer screen. :)
Thanks for checking on us. MUCH LOVE from all of us to you and yours.
