and don't even know where to start...but I have good reasons for being absent...
It seems that our life has been turned upside down..in a good way. God has lots of things in store for us and we are certainly very excited about what he is doing in our life...but it has caused us to run ragged!
I have written before that Ray felt that God was calling him to transfer to Shelby Co. (and with a little resistence, Ray accepted God's calling) however we thought that his transfer was going to start late Sept. or early October...Because Brenly starts Kindergarten in the fall, our plan was to live with Kristy until Ray got transferred and then start looking for a house. We later found out that Ray's transfer is going into effect August 9th (and Brenly starts school August 10th) which is a huge blessing...(I wasn't looking forward to living two seperate lives again, like we did during his Police Academy Days!) But that made us step it up into high gear...So for the past month I have...
*starting packing up our entire house
*continuing to drive back/forth from Bolivar to Memphis
*working full time
*keeping the girls involved with different things, so that they will have a fun summer
*searching for the PERFECT house
*Losing 3 of those "perfect" houses (we now have a contract on the 4th...please pray)
*we've been out of town alot more than usual this summer, and preparing for our family vacation
and I am exhausted...mentally, physically, emotionally...praying that God will give me enough strength for just today...knowing and trusting in the fact that with God all things are possible...
So I promise that my hiatus from my blog hasn't been because I am lazy...Its because our life is C-R-A-Z-Y!!!
I hope and pray that in the coming days we will have some real exciting news about where God is going to place us!
Until then, we would love your prayers for peace and patience!
