The Last Week

Well, this is it.
The beginning of our last week in this place. I don't think I will ever get used to moving. But, I know that God has a plan for us and that we all must trust him and believe that He is doing what is best. We may not see it right now but He has a plan. We may never see it in this life, but one day we will look back and see it all. We might be in heaven, but one day we will know for sure that this was all part of God's glorious plan for our lives.
Yesterday at church some people started giving us hugs and telling us how they would miss us. Since they won't be able to be at our last Sunday Service (next Sunday), they wanted us to know yesterday. It makes me sad to think about it. Moving away and not seeing these friends as often.
We get comfortable in our churches. We take for granted the people we see each and every Sunday. We don't think about that ending, not after only two years. People of the church, you have become dear to us and leaving will be very hard. You have taught us things and we hope that you've learned something from us in return. We've all grown in Christ together. And anytime you grow with someone, having that person move on is difficult.
Please know that my family and I feel blessed to have been a part of this community for the past two years. Keep in touch with us and visit us in the mountains anytime you wish!

For all of you out there (blogging friends, too), I won't be around much this week -- with all the boxes that are already packed and all the things still to get finished -- I haven't a lot of extra time on my hands. BUT -- be sure and check back on Wednesday for a new book review. This book is one of the best I've read. You won't want to miss it. Nor will you want to miss the giveaway, either. You will love this book!

Well, as I've said -- I've got boxes to pack and lots of cleaning to do. Anyone who wants to come and help clean out the refrigerator and all those other fun things you have to do when you move -- just come on over. I'll be glad to give the honors away. =)
But - since I know no one really loves cleaning the fridge -- I'll be diligently plotting along this week.

I hope to be able to catch up with each of you before we have to (gasp) disconnect the computer and leave.

I would leave my menu plan here as I like to do on Monday's but this week that would look like this ---
eat out, eat out, eat at church, eat out/sandwiches, eat out, eat out.......

Yep - that is a LOT of eating out -- but since I'm getting rid of all in the fridge and packing up all the extra pots and pans I left out last week -- we will have nothing too much to eat around here. I am a little worried about getting healthy food out all week. Maybe I will just pray that God could make my arteries slick this week so nothing sticks......

Ya'll have a good day. My family and I have a basement to clean out and get organized for moving today.

Don't forget to come back on Wednesday!

I really hope this week goes well!! I know moving can be miserable, especially when you are also leaving people you love dearly! I think that the anticipation of having to say goodbye is usually worse then the actual leaving. I pray that God gives you an extra helping of peace and grace this week.

I hope that the move is easy on all of you!
