A Leap of Faith

Just to let you know what has been happening at our house this week. We are packing, moving, cleaning out the attic! We have no offers on our property. We don't even officially have it on the market. But God has put an urgency inside of me that won't let up. So, we are working by faith. Faith in God's plan.
I find myself saying to God several times a day, "I trust You". "I trust You". Because it just sounds silly to anyone who is not a believer that we would be doing all this without even knowing we can sell the place. It is all backward by most standards.
Our older kids had the time this weekend because the weather rained out all the baseball games, so we thought we would make good use of them. We got a lot accomplished. Kim is a speed-packer, her husband, Mark, is strong and our oldest son, Keith, is the comic relief.
Keith came and replaced the guest bath facet, which Al bought, but just can't sum up the energy to get done. This house is starting to show her age. It's time.
Mother has had the offer from a good friend of a spare, big room to move into, which will allow her to stay in Waxahachie. She will be able to continue working until it's time to quit. My sisters came down this weekend to get her started packing. We will get her all moved in the next few weeks.
Picking through 25 years of your life is a long, slow process. It will take us the next 3 weeks to get prepared for an Estate Sale the first weekend in April.
Please pray for us as we slowly, but surely go through all our things and determine the best place for it: storage, kids or trash!
We have found out this week, also, that we will be grandparents to No. 8 by the end of the year. Please pray for this young couple to seek God in every decision they make.
Pray that whomever is suppose to buy our property comes forward at just the right time. That I would find that job when it is needed.
Al continues to be in pain with his neuropathy. The hip and knee he is still learning to walk on. They lowered his chemo dose, but have not seen the effect that may have, yet. Even when he was not on chemo this past week, he still did not feel well (stomach) and still had very little energy. It may take some time for him to build up those red blood cells.
