Another Monday which means we are another week closer to leaving AVL. It is starting to become real..and overwhelming...but God keeps reminding us that He is in charge of this journey, not us!
We were able to shed a few more pounds of stuff this past weekend. Our second yard sale brought in another $300 once you count in the craiglist items. Thank the Lord for craigslist, really, once you get past the chance that you might attract some kind of creepy weirdo your stuff goes quick!
We still have a few items of interest:
1 antique trunk (circa: 1930)
2 real wood bookshelves (one about 5' and the other about 3' tall)
1 hammered dulcimer (includes hammers, stand, tuner and a couple of books)
1 T.V. (22" I think)
1 twin bed frame
Contact us if you are interested in taking any of these items off our hands. We'll even cut you a deal!
Some folks have asked us how it feels to be getting rid of all of our belongings.
IT FEELS GOOD!
God is reminding us during this season that material things can create a lot of bondage in our lives. They can hold us back from moving freely into all that He has for us. As we have gotten rid of stuff we have both felt a freedom to GO! We have realized that it is impossible to just get up and GO when you are held in one place by things.
This week is a big one. Kyle will complete a major project at work which will alleviate some of the stress that he has been feeling lately. I will complete my job that we do not speak of...HOORAY! At the end of the week we will be speaking at the closing banquet for Trinity's Arts & Sport's Camp! Please keep us lifted up to our Heavenly Father. It is in these details that we can become impatient and lost our cool with one another! Kyle and I have to remind each other that we are working towards the same purpose. We are on the same team! You're on that team with us too so we will keep you lifted up if you will do the same for us!
Also, a big barrel of love to my wonderful Grandmother whose Birthday is on Tuesday!
Happy Birthday Grandma!
I'm not sure why I just wished her a Happy Birthday on our blog. She doesn't have a computer...yet...we're working on that though. We can't have Grandma going a year without seeing us!
