Yesterday was kind of a tough day for me -- even though it was a very special day. Yesterday was December 2nd, which is my precious Daddy's birthday and I had a very special post planned for him that never made it to the press. But you can read this post from Father's Day if you haven't already!

Only the Lord knows the future, and with that I know I shouldn't worry or feel insecure. As I grow in my walk with the Lord, I'm learning to surrender it all to Him on a daily basis. My family and I are still praying without ceasing with faith and hope for His will. With that being said, it looks as if He is taking us to the Emerald City (no, not Oz).You see, I'm going to need all the cold gear I can get because as the pages keep turning in this new chapter of our lives, it appears the set is changing from Maui to Seattle--for at least the next few months or more. This situation has made me realize how day-by-day life really is, and while planning is only human--things change.
So, aside from being an emotional wreck the first few weeks of November, God has given me the strength to take care of business. While this blog is very important to me because it includes all of you, it has unfortunately taken the back burner, hence all the far and few between posts and me mostly posting giveaways!
With the guys in Seattle and the gals on Maui, we are all tending to the most important tasks accordingly to make this transition smooth--whenever that may be--I was hoping before Christmas.
I finally finished that demanding class I often whined about, and I am officially on a Leave of Absence until further notice--which has been a great sigh of relief since I'm being honest. The much needed time has allowed my Mom and I to pack this 2,400 square foot house...
I couldn't help but get frustrated taping up yet another box. Thoughts of people who have never moved in their life made me realize I can't even count how many times I've moved in mine. Our moves hardly ever consist of loading a car and driving to the next location -- it's more complex -- involving containers and a Matson liner, crossing the country or a few thousand miles of ocean.
Mom and I are already have our suitcases packed and ready to go at the snap of a finger. We're basically done with the inside of the house aside from the stuff we use everyday, and will tackle the garage next. Very exhausting process, but it has to get done. Remember this Speechless Sunday post.. You really don't realize how strong you are until you have no other choice. And I credit that strength is directly from the Lord.
How many times have you moved in your life? And I mean really moved. Sold or packed everything you own and had to "start over" when you got there kind of move...
