Busy Days

I think that over the next few weeks life will be a bit busy here. We are catching a glimpse of that little light at the end of the tunnel. Just a few things left to be done on the new house (painting the porch railing for instance) and then one more move.

My head is spinning with all of the details still to be taken care of  (Do I really have to do all that change of address "stuff" again?!). At some point I will be without internet service for a little while (Why does that make me feel all funny inside?). And there are family things that must be taken care of.

Add that to a commitment to spend less time on-line during this Lenten Season, and it means I have little time these days for visiting. I miss you when I don't get to interact. You are a sweet part of my life. It won't be for very long I hope, and I'll try to write a post here and there as time permits.

We are beyond thankful for all the Father has blessed us with. I stand on that five acres, listening to a chorus of birdsong and the wind making ocean noises through the ancient oaks, and want to weep with the sheer joy of it. I cannot take in the depth of His love.

Soon I will sit on that little front porch and invite you to come sit awhile. We'll share a cup of tea and talk about the things that are dear to our hearts. I am so thankful for you.

If you think of us, whisper a little prayer that all will go well. I'll be praying for you too.



  1. That looks like such a peaceful spot. Blessings as you enter this final phase.

  2. Linda, it looks absolutely wonderful! I didn't realize you were getting so close.

    I look forward to sitting on that porch with you. (But will you have coffee, too?) ;-)

    Enjoy these last steps and the fruit of your patient waiting. We'll be here.

  3. wonderful times ahead of you... very exciting (o: You will have a whole new walking route.

  4. I am so happy for you, Linda! The house is beautiful! Take all the time you need to get settled in and we'll be waiting for you.

    God bless and thank you for your prayers.

  5. Oh, my goodness, I love the looks of your new house - and I didn't realize you had so much property. What a blessing that this is all coming to fruition, after so many years of not unpacking those boxes! It's amazing that the beginning of all this is when we "met." I would so love to visit you on the porch (IRL!) and have that cup of tea.

    I'm so far behind on reading and writing - I finally got an update post up today on Dwight's situation. I will miss you while you're gone!

  6. i just keep looking at that big blue!

  7. Such a beautiful house that you'll make into a loving home. You'll have so much outdoor space to enjoy as well, you are very blessed indeed:-) Prayers that all goes well!! xoxo

  8. Sooooo beautiful. When we moved last summer, I felt the same as you. Just so abundantly grateful. And then I stumbled upon this verse:

    "My choice is you, God, first and only.
    And now I find I'm your choice!
    You set me up with
    a house and yard.
    And then you made me your heir!"
    Psalm 16:5,6

  9. Oh Linda... it is beautiful and so is the view! What a wonderful and peaceful spot to sit on your porch. Praying that all goes well! :)

  10. Just lovely! I'm so excited for you! I know about the work that goes into moving. Praying even now! {HUGS}

  11. oh linda! i am so excited for you... and just think, at one point, you were wondering if this day would ever come. God is so good. so, so good. love you.

  12. I love me a good porch. And I'd love to sit there with you and share tea, coffee, lemonade...all of it. And maybe some Laity Lodge cookies.

    It's beautiful! So are you.

  13. Your new home is looking wonderful! I love the symmetry and the front porch is terrific. Your surrounding landscape is absolutely lovely. I am so happy for you and your husband! I know you've waited a long time for this. God Bless you! :)

  14. It's so beautiful! A gift from the Lord!
    I love you, friend...
