It feels like years, not weeks, since I’ve participated in Lisa-Jo Baker’s Five Minute Friday, but here I am. Seriously, it’s a gathering of some of the best writers on the web that you’ve never heard of. Want to play along? Find the information you need here. And now, let’s go!
It feels like I’ve been holding my breath. LIke I wasn’t even aware I was holding it until I let it out. I’ve been saving up all the worries and dire predictions of doom and gloom, all the private agonies of what might be, holding onto them like lungsful of stale air, and I only just let them go.
Like my concerns about the moving company we chose.
Like my desperate desire that my children find friends in our new town. And that I do!
My worries that the kids would react badly, and I mean really temper-tantrum-throwing badly, to the move and I wouldn’t know what to do or say.
And then there are all the smaller ones, like where will I put everything? And how can I find time to unpack boxes when I’m trying to wrangle kids and get to appointments?
But oh, the sweet release when I just let that breath out. And strangely, I find that when I’m not holding in all the “old air”, I have space to breathe in something fresh and new.
Excitement for a new adventure and exploring our new area.
Delight in our new house and the potential in it. I’m determined to make it a home. (I’ve been reading The Nester’s book and I can’t wait to get started)
And best of all, the confidence of relying on a God who has it ALL in His hands. He’s got this. This move was His idea, and He has all the details under control. No need to hold my breath waiting and worrying. God’s got it.
