It has been a frantic week meeting deadlines for inspections and work orders but the result is sweet. Relief filled my heart and mind as I listened to the call from my realtor that all requirements of the sale are completed. In the end, God gave us a quick, clean sale and now I can concentrate on the real business of moving. I ran across this quote earlier this week:

What really matters now is

holding on to the memories

…and focusing on the future.

I have shed tears in the past few days for those friends that I will miss and I am sure more will fall before we head out. As excited as I am about this new adventure and challenge, I am also a bit scared. Change is never easy and if I were not absolutely sure that this is God’s plan for us, I might have given up long ago. Again, the light on the path is revealed to me step by step and my response must be, “thank you, Lord!” The future looks bright with new house, new neighbors, new church, new state, new…new…new. However, my anchor in all these uncharted areas comes from Proverbs 3:5-6, Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will direct your paths. I am so glad He’s the mapmaker.
