Down to just 3.5 days
I just loaded my car with some clothes and I managed to clean out a few drawers and box that stuff up. I am making progress!! I even packed a few boxes of dishes too!! At work I have been bringing home several boxes each day. Right now I have a huge cheez-its box full of socks, hose and underwear. And an applesauce box full of gloves, scarves and more socks. I have way too much in the sock and underwear department for sure. But I am making some progress...of sorts. We are down to just 3.5 more days until we get married. Excited?? Yes, I am. Nervous?? Yes...I am. Scared....Not one bit. Am I sure?? Yes...with all my heart. I am sure. To say I am marrying the sweetest man in the world is a humongous understatement. He is without a doubt the kindest and sweetest man ever. He is the calm to this storm for sure. As I look around this ginormous mess I cannot help but grin. I really am getting married in just over three days. I really am moving out of this house. I really am starting a brand new life with an amazing man. I really am!! God is just so good to me. And I so do not deserve it. I fail my Lord daily. I sin about 973 times each day...if not more. I do exactly what I do not want to do and I don't do what i am supposed to do!! Just like in Romans where Paul describes this very behavior!! And still....in just 3.5 days....God will answer my prayers. Show me, once again, His wonderful favor by sending this wonderful man. He has turned this pile of ashes into something of beauty. I truly cannot wait for Saturday. As I look around me and see all the things I have to do and to pack and to throw out and to sell and to just pack away at another house...I should just start to cry but I still just keep smiling. Because all that stuff can just wait. I'm getting married in a few days and that is all I can think about. Good grief....I'm like a 22 year old nervous bride to be!! My friend Sherry told me to just enjoy all this. She got remarried after being divorced for many years at the ripe old age of 57. She said she was the worlds oldest bride! Well I am the worlds second oldest bride and I think I will do what she says.....enjoy all this and wish the next 3.5 days would just go faster!!!
