We're getting closer and closer to moving day.
Our green wall has been painted back to white. Pictures have been taken down. Piles of valuables are beginning to form. This house is looking less and less like "ours" and more like a convenient place to sleep.
I go through ups and downs. Some moments I'm fine. Others, I start to panic over the long laundry list of "to-dos."
But then, those rays of sunshine come in. A rare, heavy snowfall lands in our backyard. My little girl laughs hysterically as she plays with her papa in it. Things slowly get checked off our list. Friends invited us over to dinner and surprise us with a mini baby shower. We spend an evening laughing, eating Lasagna, salad, garlic bread and cake, and watching Disney movies with the kids. I come home with a small pile of onesies, hats and toys for the beloved little boy that will be in our life before I know it. And my heart feels completely full.
The list of to-do’s doesn't seem so daunting. My heart feels blessed. Blessed to be loved. Blessed that God reaches into the smallest corners of my heart and reminds me often of His all encompassing love.  Blessed that He cares about things big and small.
No, He doesn’t fulfill every single desire. And I’m so glad He hasn’t! some of those roads would have led me to far different places. But I do believe He loves us. He wants to see us content and happy in this world. And He often finds ways, big and small to remind us of that love. I truly believe that God knew how much I needed some encouragement last night. How much I needed to focus on something besides this move. And so, He sent friends to love on me. He sent friends to remind me that I’m very much not alone. He gave me a blessing, and in return I praise Him for who He is!


“May the Lord answer you when you are in distress; may the name of the God of Jacob protect you. May he send you help from the sanctuary and grant you support from Zion. May he remember all your sacrifices and accept your burnt offerings. May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed" (Psalm 20:1-4, NIV).
