It’s been a few weeks since I announced our relocation to our East Texas farm. Those weeks have been busy, selling a business, shutting operations down, selling our house, packing, all in preparation for the big move – THIS WEEK. Fortunately, today I found the computer!
Since July 1 there have been repairs to the house (new roof, foundation work, plumbing, AC), a garage sale on the hottest day of the year, selling furniture here and there, AND a planned surgery (hubby) with an unexpected detour (more on this later). My transition to farm life is not without its surprises, too. After finding a mouse in the house, I’m not sure who was scared more – me or the mouse. What I do know is that I ran faster than I thought humanly possible.
Last week I learned how to feed the horse and the cows. I made them promise not to get me fired since it was my first day on the job. I will be holding daily “Miss Manners” lessons to all livestock. They really need to learn to get along with their neighbors.
Thursday is when the movers load us up as we head east. Many of you have asked what I will be doing with all this time on my hands. So, after considerable thought, I’m happy to report that “doing nothing” for as long as I can get away with it. God has provided a way for the ministry of Peace After the Storm abortion aftercare Bible studies to continue in the DFW area, and we hope to host retreats at the farm for the ministry in the future.
Moving is not for the faint of heart, but with excitement and lots of emotionbut we so are looking forward to this next chapter of our life!
Deuteronomy 31:8 “Indeed, the Lord is the one who will keep on walking in front of you. He’ll be with you and won’t leave you or abandon you, so never be afraid and never be dismayed.”
