Townhouse Blues

Townhouse Blues

There was a great deal to like about the townhouse. We loved the loft feeling as we leaned over the rail at the top of the steps to talk to one another, acting a little like Southern gentry. We loved the spacious downstairs area that served both as a dining room and a living room. […]

God’s Timing Is Always Best

God’s Timing Is Always Best

We moved across states recently, which I think I mentioned in another post. Let me tell you it wasn’t without some bumps. First we had a month, so that should be enough time, right? We sure thought so. Plus, we were moving back home…to our home state of Indiana. That meant we had family close […]

Moving Chaos and God

Moving Chaos and God

  My family is in the middle of an out of state move. Can we say crazy time? Oh, my, yes it sure is. We’ve known for a month for sure and in that time we’ve been purging tons of stuff. I’m sure our trash men just love us. Maybe I should bake them cookies […]

From Here to There and In-between

From Here to There and In-between

A few months ago, my husband and I decided we were simply too far away from our children and grandchildren. We put the house on the market, and it sold within twenty-four hours. And so, a whirlwind of activity has transpired to get ready for our big move in a few days’ time. We liked […]

Putting All Else Aside

Putting All Else Aside

It’s a Good Thing I Love You

It’s a Good Thing I Love You

As we approach Thanksgiving, I examine so many blessings in my life. Besides the gift of faith, I am most thankful for those whom God has allowed me to love while here on this earth, including my husband of almost thirty-nine years, our marriage characterized as “an adventure around every corner.” Change is something that […]

Do You Need A Moving Truck For A Change of Heart?

This past week my family moved to a new community an hour away from previous home. We are so excited about the move, but the whole process of moving was daunting. Boxes upon boxes were stacked in the living room, garage and hallway. Tedious hours of sorting and eliminating the old things we no longer […]

Where Your Treasure Is

Where Your Treasure Is

The theme these last few months seems to be moving. I mentioned recently that several writers here have talked about moving, including me. I think everyone should have to move at least once in their life.   #124383199 / gettyimages.com   There’s something about digging through your possessions, deciding what you really really want enough […]

By Wisdom, a House Is Built

In the last several months, several writers here have shared thoughts about moving. What is it about a move that reminds us so quickly that we are not the ones in control of things? There is so much about buying a house you can afford, finding a neighborhood you like, selling your home, getting a […]
