MIA for a While

     I haven't had much time lately to post on here.  We're in the process of moving and have been packing like crazy maniacs to get it all done.  I keep asking myself why I/we have collected so much stuff since we moved into this home 11 years ago.  Of course, some of it we came here with.  And I keep wondering...what is it that makes me want to hang on to all this stuff, especially the stuff that has no sentimental value attached to it?  The Bible says that one day it's all going to burn up with the rest of the earth.  Also, Jesus told us in Matthew 6:19-21 - "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.  But store up for yourselves treasures in Heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."  Pretty convicting stuff!  I'm realizing that many times whatever we own actually owns us.       
     While this is a hectic time for us as a family, God is still good and He's teaching me in and through this process.  I'm trying to see the little kisses from God during this process and just making a feeble attempt to trust Him with it all!


  1. Glad to see your post today. Have been wondering where you are! I hope your move goes smoothly and is a good one for you and your family.

  2. Wow, I'm impressed you were able to post at all!

    We moved four times in three years but have now been in this home for two years and I can't believe what we've accumulated. We just cleaned out the store room last weekend and the office is scheduled for this weekend.

    Keep your chin up to be sure and catch all those kisses!

  3. If you can imagine, I've lived my entire life in the same state and within an hour of where I grew up. But now God has other plans for my family and me. It's going to be a great adventure once I get over the sadness of leaving family and friends behind. But I am definitely looking for God's blessings in the midst of this change.
