Sobering Reality

Monday, May 16, 2011

We have less than ten days until we move into our rental house. The sobering reality of the move has begun to weigh on us. While we will miss owning our own home, we are looking forward to what God has in store. Hopefully, He will reveal His directions for us soon, so that we can make the necessary adjustments to follow wherever He leads.

Hope you're enjoying your Monday.

Lot's of Energy

Sunday, May 15, 2011

We enjoyed a great time of worship at Open Door this morning. Our crowd was larger than it had been since Easter. The students seemed to connect with what we were trying to accomplish in our Bible Study time before worship as well.

It is a great joy and privilege of mine to spend time with God's people and pastor, even if it is just for the interim time before they get a real one.

Blessings

Early Wake-Up Call

Saturday, May 14, 2011

Our daughter's dog, Fox, woke us up at about 4 a.m. this morning, so we didn't get too much sleep as we got out of bed at about 5 and begin setting things out for our moving sale. It's kind of bittersweet watching people cart off some things that were once valued by our daughters. However, as they grow up their desires change.

Hopefully, some other children will enjoy the toys and things that were purchased today. It looks like things are going well, and we are getting rid of a lot of stuff.

Crazy Weekend

Friday, May 13, 2011

Things are crazy busy around the Cooper household as we prepare for a garage sale. Hopefully, we are able to get rid of a lot of the excess stuff that we have accumulated. The less stuff we have the easier our move will be. Everything is still up in the air with respect to where we will go, when my job disappears at the end of this year.

Needless to say it's a stressful time. My wife, Debbie, is especially in need of your prayers. She tends to be more of a worrier than the rest of us. Also the sobering reality of our impending move is really starting to hit Olivia, our eight year old, really hard.

Blessings

Two Weeks

Thursday, May 12, 2011

It's hard to believe that two weeks from today we will be moving out of the house in which we have lived for eight years. While it is somewhat exciting about our next step as a family, it is tough to leave a neighborhood where our family has been so graciously accepted. We have truly enjoyed living in this house, but I guess it's getting time to move on.

Please pray for our youngest daughter as she tries to adjust to this move. After all, this is the only house that she has ever known.

Blessings

    You and your daughter are in my thoughts. It can be really hard to leave a family home.

    prayers for your little one for sure! We have moved several times in the past few years and thankfully each has been stress-free for my daughter. I am sure your new home will be just as blessed for you and your family! ~hugs~
