Big changes are coming my way - and they are coming quickly.
My dearest daughter will be moving her furniture and all of her possessions into our house. We have a large home with only two of us living in it at this point. There is room, but I must finally start cleaning out the old to make way for her.
I have only several days to prepare for her to move in. She has arrived at a turning point in her life and by the grace of God she will grow into the person God intended her to be and she will find peace and serenity as she journeys in a new direction. I could use your prayers for her and for hubby and me.
I have postponed, put off, procrastinated at really clearing out the clutter of a lifetime of accumulating material possessions. I am a pack-rat and have things from every era of my life in boxes, chests, drawers, bags, and storage bins all over the house. I have attempted to downsize a few times and have made a tiny bit of progress, but overall the result has been negligible. So, the crunch is on and the time has come for me to start tossing things. Pray I will be successful.
We are about to become a foster family for daughter's dog, Lucky. I love dogs and it has been a long time since we have had the pleasure of man's best friend around here. Dogs are such unconditionally loving animals. I know I will fall in love with him.
Change is also in the air. Hallelujah, hallelujah. Yesterday some cooler air finally arrived. The air conditioning went off and the windows opened. This morning is like heaven. It is 55 degrees out now with a predicted high of 72. I could not ask for anything better.
Pray, pray, pray.
Love, love, love.
