Over the next few weeks, I will search ~

for a new church, a few filler furniture pieces for my new home, time, peace, a pre-school, new doctors, a great grocery store, those cute little mom-and-pop restaurants that are better than the chains, the quickest route to the beach, new friends, and perhaps most importantly, the best way to stay in touch with ‘old’ friends.

I will mourn ~

for a life I am leaving behind, not just the 34 years of geographical familiarity, not just the loved ones no more than an hour away, not just the sights and streets and faces that are extentions of me, but my way of life as a stay-at-home mom for the last wonderful 4.5 years.

I will execute~

because there is a lot to be done. A party, a recital, a girl graduating high school, a MOVE, a new home, exciting new jobs, a revival in Branson. And I am very, very excited about all of these things.

I will emote~

because I am currently experiencing about every emotion there is to have.

But tonight~

I will thank Him, for giving His amazing life for my tiny one, for loving me, blessing me, forgiving me, protecting me, and sending me.

Jesus would have died for me had I been the only one.

Same for you.

And He rose for all of us.
