Well, life seems to be slowly getting back on track.
We closed on both houses last Monday (back-to-back), which proved to be just this side of chaos. Buyer’s funding was late, so we had to close in escrow, which is common – but another bump we weren’t expecting.
The next day, the movers started loading the truck at 4:00 PM, and we didn’t get the keys to the new house until 5:00. So there was a little stress there, too.
But we knew it was all in God’s hands – and He was just reminding us that He was in control, and that everything would be fine.
And it was.
But to make last week a little more, ummm, interesting, we headed down to Florida after being in the house a grand total of 42 hours. This threw off Jennie’s nesting instincts, but it was for a great trip we take every year with Jennie’s mom & dad, Jennie’s sisters Kelly and Leah, and a friend each. Or in this year’s case for Leah, her husband Chris.
I only slept at the rental house this year, ’cause I needed one more thing on my plate I was asked to play at the Singles’ Labor Day Retreat, an annual function in Destin with over 600 singles from our campuses. And even a few partner churches this year!
Turns out it’s a pretty big to-do, with full band, staging and lighting – way more than I anticipated! So killer job to all involved!!
And so, it’s back to the proverbial grind, and a house full of boxes…. Fortunately this Sunday is relatively simple, although we’re doing a super fun Opener – so don’t miss!
The boxes, however, seem to be multiplying….
