I haven't blogged in over a week. I think that is record time for me since I started!
However, it was a much needed hiatus. We have lots of changes and transitions coming up in our lives and ministry and taking this time to pray has been glorious.
Also, as many of you know, we moved two Fridays ago (August 6) and it pretty much has enveloped me over the past week. I've been unpacking, finding where other unpackers put my things, and rearranging every little detail. I still don't have it right, but I might not for a long while.
Some things I learned from our first move (after marriage):
1. The husband and I are opposites. We have the same goals, but completely different ways of getting there. We actually came to a happy agreement that we would tackle different things and just trust one another to get them done. I just didn't want to see how he did it.
2. My mom helped us cut in while painting our new townhouse. She's got amazing precision. Billy and I tried to cut in some, but when my mom returned the next day, she told me in no uncertain terms that I was not to try to cut in again or to fix my mistakes with the white ceiling paint we had to buy (to, well, fix our mistakes). I didn't protest too much. I'm great at delegating, I found out.
3. Dead ticks in your carpet doesn't mean you have live ones (I hope!). It means the people before you have dogs, and then they sprayed. Yeah, that's what it means. (Really, we haven't found any live one - Real-life friends, you're safe!)
Also, today, I'm wishing happy birthday to my beautiful mother. She's 29, again.
