Overwhelmed.

As I type this, I'm sitting in my garage on the last day of our rummage sale. I'm overwhelmed.

Overwhelmed at God's goodness.
His provision.
Overwhelmed at the love of friends who stop by to help, bring dinner and snacks.
Overwhelmed with the amount of STUFF we have.
Overwhelmed with what is still left to accomplish in the next week and a half.
Overwhelmed at the peace that we still feel.

Yesterday was Jaron's last day of preschool and today is Morgan's last day of 2nd grade here in Indiana.  This is becoming a reality. Our house is empty, our hearts are full. This is such a bitter sweet time.

It's hard to put into words all that is going through our heads right now, but we do appreciate your prayers as we transition. Even though we have peace knowing that we are making the right decision for our family, God doesn't promise that right decisions won't be difficult.  Along with the excitement comes difficulty and along with the joy comes tears.
