I am bouncing off the walls in here (talking about my mind).
I am trying (and succeeding!) to enjoy the time of celebration and family in these last days leading up to the marriage (H’s sister is marrying H’s best friend). However, after the fellowship is over and we’re back at box-world (aka the apartment), all I can think about is things that need to happen in the next e i g h t d a y s before the move. It’s overwhelming.
The eternal optimist in me (it’s a rare side, but still there) shrugs off the stress and says it will all get done. Which it will. Whether it gets done at the expense of sanity is another matter.
Life-long family friends of my in-laws are in town from Australia for the upcoming wedding. They gave me a beautiful wooden tea-light holder with a blessing that is much appreciated in the midst of the maelstrom.
May you know the nearness of His Presence with you and His love, joy, peace and strength always.
“The God of love and peace will be with you…” 2 Corinthians 13:11
