Bubble Wrap

Packing a house is difficult.
Packing a house with a mobile-into-everything-now-9-month-old is EXTREMELY difficult!

Yet that is what I have been doing...

Packing. Taping. Building boxes. Packing. Organizing. Listing items for sale on Craigslist. Throwing stuff away. Packing. Rearranging boxes to fit more. Packing more. Moving boxes from room to room, in attempt to get them out of the way. And packing, more.

Fun.

Today as I was packing up our wedding memorabilia, I found myself lingering with the bubble wrap in my hands just popping the tiny bubbles one by one. What simple stress relief that is!

As I popped, I prayed.

I know God knows what He is doing... I have faith that we are taking the right steps and will eventually learn what our "final" destination will be.

Sometimes, in the midst of boxes, I need bubble wrap. It helps me let go and let God. Something so simple can do so much.

Back to my bubble wrap I go for another round of packing and prayers.

We JUST moved and moving with kids is a nightmare :) Bless you.
We too found moving hard when we don't know for sure what the road ahead is and what "the plan" is. I'll be thinking and praying for you guys.
