Yep, our new house is all prepped out and just waiting for us to move in next week.
We spent most of today working alongside fabulous folks from the We Will Go family and new friends from First Baptist Jackson. Furniture was moved out and about, bathrooms were scrubbed, kitchens were cleaned, repairs were made, and a stray dog was bathed and played with. We ate our first meal there (thanks to the hubster who made a Wendy's run), took a cake break with friends on the back porch, took lots and lots of photos (hey, I was there, after all), and got blessed big time by all those who were willing to work hard on our family's behalf.
Those who know me in real life know that I don't blink a mascara'ed eye at throwing a party for 30, 40, heck, even a hundred folks. But tell me to organize a house and get it all prepped up and this woman starts breaking out in mental hives.
So believe me when I say, I am overwhelmingly grateful for today. God is calling our family to move into this new area of life and ministry, but He's also sending lots of reminders that we're not supposed to do this journey alone. He wants all of us to be a part of a faith family and loving families are all about being there for each other in time of need and in times of rejoicing.
And this event just happens to marry the two of those together in amazing ways.
