What A Difference a Day Makes


What a difference a day makes, or should I say weekend?
 A moving truck, an empty house and hearts..... tender "goodbyes" to dear friends, three cars packed with memories of life in our town.... it will always be our town. 

First stop.... Nashville. 
Two Universities. 
A freshman boy and a full schedule. Team meetings, running miles that will provide pain, blisters and opportunity to encourage and be encouraged. Also, many opportunities for the mama to pray throughout Friday and Saturday night. 
God will provide sleep later.

The senior daughter, in her sweet house looking at her future. What does it hold and how are you to know by the age of 21? No fears daughter, God will show you and it will go well. I have faith and I know the plans He has for you.... He loves you that much.

Good conversations, tears, laughter, a silly dog who sat in a chair at dinner..... only in Nashville. Yes, it was our dog.

Quick goodbyes
Many prayers
Texts to encourage

A long drive to my new home

A truck that clearly picked up more boxes of "stuff" along the way.
This is not all mine.

New opportunities to pray, trust, seek, discern, be still, wait...... on HIM.

Today, I could be overwhelmed by it all. But I will choose to be overwhelmed by HIM. 
The One who has given me new opportunities. 
Thank you God for loving me enough to entrust these opportunities to me. 
I am your servant and I choose to seek your face each morning. Your blessings are new each day. Let me not waste my energies on anything but You and your people. 

"Great is His faithfulness, His mercies are new each morning."
Lamentations 3:23


  1. "Speak for your servant is trusting"

  2. Dale- guess what verse was in my reading my first day in KC? 1 Peter 5:10
    "May the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you."
    This is my prayer for your family and mine.
    Cellus and I are having a rough time...but there is so much hope in His Word.




Don't be shy...
