This is our life this season. We are moving. We finally bought our first house!! Unfortunately it is almost a 3 hour drive away. We get possession this Sunday!! Unfortunately that as you well know is 10 days before Christmas. So... like instead of decorating, baking and fully enjoying this time of year I'm packing.
I'm living in a different kind of chaos this month.
Now don't get me wrong I'm really very happy but also a little bit sad when I look around at all the lights and see all the pics of baking when instead my reality is:
Yet even through it all I'm learning some VERY valuable lessons.
I'm learning to lean on Him.
I can't do this without His strength. His peace, His grace.
I'm learning to do without. A very good lesson on my part.
I'm learning to let go. I have no control over this. I have no control over moving in the middle of winter when the temps have been hovering in the -20's and colder for over a week now. I have no control,over the fact that the forecast has lots of snow in it and is supposed to be snowing when we move. I have no control, but He does.
No matter what happens He will see us through this. He will hold us each step of the way.
So although this is not a 'normal' Christmas for us it is one I wouldn't trade for anything.
I'm so thankful and so blessed.
