Or…not.  I have been trying this past month or so to set up my house in such a way that it will be easy to maintain and keep clean. It is no small task considering the sheer amount of stuff we have managed to amass over these past five years ( that’s how long my husband and I have been married). I don’t need all this stuff and since we are moving to Japan I know we can’t take it all with us so I have been going room to room, space, to space decluttering/ cleaning each space. I have been taking “before and after” shots of each space so maybe I will do a longer entry with pics a bit later (after the fact).

In any case this said, I realized today that I have an alarmingly short amount of time left before my land lords would like to put the house on the market and an extremely long “to do” list before it is ready. Can anyone say AHHHHHHH!!!! To make matters more complicated…because they want to put the house on the market in May and we do not move till June this means packing a lot of our stuff and storing it at friends houses until right before we move when I will then have to bring everything back and unpack it so that the military will pack it all for us and be “responsible” for the shipment. It is just a lot of work and I am feeling overwhelmed. Any words of encouragement and much prayer would be appreciated!!!

I know you read this now wondering what I will say, but is your heart beating like mine? Does your breath come in short gasps, and your hands long to grasp the handle of something that will hold you erect? I know mine are to slick with the sweat to ever hope to hold on and so I write with an urgency that eggs me on.

Who are you? The time has come that we dispel with the pleasantries and actually remove the masks that we allow only the world to see. There must be more to the both of us…a deeper walk with God? Or are you just faking with the hopes of eventually making the cut…I know that I have not always been honest, I know I have not always been real. Please forgive me for holding you at a distance to afraid to be judged…or possibly hugged? Which would be worse, I don’t know. Either way I am just awkward. 

What is this feeling? This longing in my heart to make something worthwhile, to not fall apart. Lord God I just want the works of my hand to be glorifying and and to lift up your plan. Let your light shine through me, let me not be afraid to boldly go forth and sing of your praise. 

Today is a new day, all the old days have passed. there is no going back now, and thank God for that. I don’t want to go back to where I have been, the muck and the mire were to much to be in. Who wants to hold on…it’s too good to let let go…at least of the bad, so say goodbye and let’s go!   

Life’s an adventure!
