This is what comes to mind when I think about the last week. The mold remediation is complete and the results came back clean, the structural issues have been repaired, the value inventory was completed last night, Thai language classes have ended, and the Murano has been sold. The electrician checked the work Chris and Todd had done and he said everything was perfect (insert sigh of relief). I have sent in my volunteer application to work with the Mercy Center in Bangkok and have joined the expat mom group that has fun play dates all the time!
Still to come inspectors are being scheduled to come back out and inspect the work that is complete and the movers will be here Tuesday.
The way our marriage works is months before a big decision or life event I freak out and Chris is as cool as a cucumber but when we get close to “game time” I am completely calm and Chris is a wreck. Thank the Lord we balance each other out. The other day Chris asks if I was nervous and I respond no not really.
Back story: The night before we were doing our devotional and after we had finished we were reading in Matthew about how Jesus called to His soon to be disciples to follow Him. They heard Him, literally left their boats and nets in the water, and followed. The next two disciples He calls out to decide to leave their dad and boat just floating there. They had a blind faith that saved their lives from what they thought they were supposed to be doing as fisherman.
Back to Chris asking if I was nervous: I explained that if those men could just drop everything and follow Christ then I could “man up” and honor my commitment that I made to God when I gave my life back to him a few years ago. When I gave my life back to Christ I prayed the most powerful prayer of my life. I said “I’ll do whatever you want me to do and go wherever you want me to go but I would like to stay in Greenville” , well as we all know now the Greenville thing didn’t happen because He has a bigger plan than I could every comprehend.
I am blessed to have a family that is supportive of this move. I am even more blessed to have a husband that respects my beliefs and honors me enough to help me follow Gods call. I still can’t believe that we were chosen for an adventure of a lifetime.
God is good all of the time.
“The person who goes farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare. The sure-thing boat never gets far from shore.”
