Finding Goodness in the Midst of Frazzle

Mornin’ luvs!

I’m snatching a moment to hang out with you dear folks in the midst of the hustle and bustle of my last full day here in Washington.

I have errands to run, a car to sell, and a bridesmaid dress to find, but I need to take a few moments and let myself feel sadness, excitement, loss, gain, and to remind myself of the many good things I have to be thankful for:

  • friends who stay up late with me getting everything packed.
  • friends who come to help me pack and bring cake to boot.:-)
  • a little girl who comes in after all the work is done and asks if she could please do my hair and make-up. Who could resist?
  • strapping fellows who haul boxes away with nary a word of complaint.
  • folks who give hugs and luvs and remind me it’s all going to be OK.
  • a gorgeous hand crocheted scarf from my Mum in the cheeriest colors imaginable.
  • looking around my room and seeing that everything really is nearly done.


How are you doing today? How I wish I had time to sit down with you with a strong cup of tea (it’s pouring rain and cold here today) for a good, long visit.


Now I must be off. Make-up must be applied, breakfast eaten, crutches retrieved, and then I’m off to town to bid farewell to my lovely ol’ car and pass her along to a dear soul who both loves and wants her.

Hope you have a wonderful day!:-)xo

    I’m praying for your transition and move.  I pray that in the midst of change you will cling to the One who doesn’t change like shifting shadows.  That your hope will be in Him alone.  That your comfort will be in His unfailing Love.  And that all your upcoming adventures will be filled with joy and delight in the One who makes it all possible.  Every good and perfect gift is from above.  All the beauty that you so easily find in the mundane originates with Him.  The adventure of relationship with the Creator of the ends of the earth is the greatest adventure of all and I pray that you’ll see many many more sunrises and sunsets in the arms of the Son of His love.  You might be suprised to find out how often the Lord brings you to mind and causes me to pray for you.  Love you so much!  Hugs and squeezes from me to you!!!

    Well it is almost time to go Krista. I don’t know if I ever told you but I stayed in a B & B in your town with my daughter many moons ago. It was a lovely and relaxing place to be and yet close to all. We’ll talk you again when you are across the pond:D
