We went to the apple packing shed, here in town, and bought our boxes for a dollar each. They are so nice and sturdy, they make this packing thing ALMOST enjoyable....lol.
Saturday was a busy day. We packed over 30 boxes and we have many many to go, however we have made some serious progress. Rusty and Mary came up with their truck to take our camp trailer in to town so we could sell it, and we sold our riding lawn mower. We have so many more things to take care of before we are ready to leave Friday morning, but I am trying to stay very prayerful.
Last night when Rusty and Mary came up, with their kids, it was such a treat. We are so comfortable with them, and that feeling is so wonderful. I will miss that alot!! Mary and I have alternated with the tears, both promising to be strong and to see each other frequently. Once you have a friend that near to your heart, they stay there, for a lifetime. I feel extremely blessed to have them in our lives.
After they left, we laid Roman down for the night (who is teething his stomach teeth) and we just sat on the couch quietly. We were both too wiped out to continue on with any more packing. Although our bodies weren't that busy, our minds were whirling a mile a minute. So many things to do, to think about, to worry about. We began to watch a movie to calm our racing minds down, and I drifted off to sleep.
Now it is Sunday morning, and the whole house of boys are still tucked into their beds, but once the rooster began to crow I couldn't quiet the thoughts in my head. I decided it was better to post on my blog, than to allow my mind to wander over all the things I couldn't control.
So here I sit, in my messy undone house, that is half packed, and half chaos. Knowing that many things have to continue to work out before we can say it is done. Nevertheless, I will continue to trust that God is working out even the smallest of details, for He is God, and He is capable of all things.
