A fresh blog for a fresh new start, I suppose. Clearing things out of the house to sell it. It seems a little depressing watching all my stuff come down to put fresh new paint up and all. Selling this house means a new begining for another part of my life.
A new life either here in the same area or in another part of the world. The children are at a place now where they are wanting to stay here. This is house is all they have ever known, really. The younger two learned to crawl, walk and talk here. The youngest was born here! The oldest, Moira, never remembers living in Texas or any of our life back there. I really do love living here. I call this place my home now. My hometown. I could very easily see myself growing old here in a nice little home somewhere close by. But, alas, my husband and God has other plans. Which fuels my desire to travel and to appreciate home, wherever it may be. That wherever God has us go, as long as I have Him, my husband and my children, I'm happy.
I've been learning lately to depend more and more on God. That He wants a relationship with me and not just a parent/toddler kind of one. Know what I mean? God's been showing me how very imperfect I am and how much I really need to rely on His grace and mercy to get through every hour of each day. Truthfully though, I feel like I haven't been doing such a great job but I hope each day will find me closer to Him and in then closer to my husband.
Anyhow, I better sign off. . . . my first blog in years is very scattered but I hope to get more cohesion as time goes on!
