Saying I'm tired would be an understatement

We have had such a full week here in Ohio. I am as tired as tired can be, yet I feel refreshed from all the wonderful preaching I've heard. And the music, oh, the music! There is nothing quite like Christ-honoring congregational singing. We've spent about six hours each day getting our cups filled to overflowing. What a blessing! Cramming the six of us into a hotel room for the past week and living out of our suitcases has been challenging, but I have a feeling that the next week will be even more interesting. We're heading back to Georiga this morning; hopefully the 750 mile drive will be uneventful. :) Monday we will be tossing, throwing, cramming packing the rest of our belongings in preparation for loading the moving truck early Tuesday morning. We will be closing on the house, Lord willing, Tuesday afternoon. Wednesday will be spent driving to Florida, and we should sign the papers and be in the "new" house sometime on Thursday. The kids are getting very excited. I think I'll start getting excited once the stressful last-minute packing details are taken care of. I am really looking forward to seeing the "new" house! :) Posting will be sporadic in the coming days as there is so much to do. Our internet will be disconnected in the next day or two, and I'm not sure when we'll have it up and running in Florida. I cannot tell you how much we appreciate the prayers that have been lifted up on our behalf over the last month or so. It has been such an encouragement to know that people all over the world have been praying for us. I'm so glad that I'm a part of the family of God! :)

I know how you feel. We've spent all week in campmeeting ourselves. We were in church every night this week and 3 times in the mornings.

We are refreshed spiritually and tired physically.

Hope you get things up and running again soon. You are missed when you are not here.

I am praying for a stress-free, peace-filled next week for you and your family. What an exciting time and how awesome that you were able to get "filled up" just before you need all that it will take to move.

You're having a jam-packed couple of weeks! Can't wait till you're all set up in FL and can show us pics of your new house.

Blogger Alesha said...
Amen to that, sister! Those prayers hold us up in ways we may not understand until we get to Heaven! I am so thankful for the prayers of others, as well.

Try to rest each night, as many hours as possible. I figured you'd be driving a vehicle down as well, and you don't want to be sleepy for that!

Godspeed to ya'll!
Alesha

I will be praying for you on your move. I hope you enjoy living in Fl. It is beautiful there.( of course Im a little biased, as I was born and raised there!)I also pray you dont have too many 'last minute' conglomeration boxes that always seem to be fuller than expected:)

Sounds like the meetings were truly wonderful. I'm glad you were able to go.

Can't wait to see how the Lord blesses you in the coming weeks as He moves you back to Florida.

Wow! Amazing how everything just falls into place. Best wishes on your move!

Blogger Pam said...
Oh bless your heart! I certainly will be praying for y'all during the move. I can't wait to hear all about the move and the new house and how God has blessed.

I love inspiration conferences! What a blessing. And I do hope your next adventure in Florida goes well. I just wrote a blog called "Undone & Take your time" about some changes coming up for me as well.

I did want to ask you, when you get a free moment, to email me how you were able to do the editing and show it in the text...I LOVE the way you wrote out "tossing, throwing, cramming, PACKING..." Cute! Can you email how to do that? jen.pellant@everynation.org.

Blessings.

Jen
