Good Evening to all; I  hope you all had a wonderful weekend; I wish I could say that I did, I had to miss all the fun fire works and family cook outs.  I am down sick with another bad head cold and chest cough...  :{  So with getting ready to start packing up to move to our new home is not going to very fun....  But we have to do what we have to do,,,, right    I thought I would show you all  a map of N.C. our new home... I am really not looking forward to being away from my sweet  Hubby for  4 weeks, but that is how it is... So the packing is all up to me, and  I am just doing one day at a time that is all I can do...  we are looking at Gastonia  for our new home.  I can't wait to be able to see it all in person, some of the photos I have seen on the inter net , the town looks very nice and has a lot going on with lots of  activities.  But we will see, the Lord my have other plans for us...

You know the closer I get the more I am getting a little sad and nervous,  to be so far from my family, is the hardest part, but they will be fine, in my head I know this  but then in my heart it is not so...  But I must follow the Lord, and trust he will take care of them for me, and they do need to grow up and mot lean on us so much but lean on the Lord more.... I pray for that each day..

So I just wanted to let you know that I have to take a couple of days off to get some things ready for my Sweet Honey Bunny when he leaves  on Sat...  but I won't be gone long, I so love all the comfort and support you give me during this trying time.....

I will be doing some visiting when I can, that way you won't forget me...........................  lol    

verse2  I am sending this beautiful Pink Rose with a beautiful verse to all of  my wonderful  best blog friends a girl could every ask for. I will be taking to you later in the week, I just might take some photos of all my packing..... he hehe   how fun would that be...

So until next time take care and God bless;

Good luck with all the packing. I love how you are letting the Lord guide you and are open to what ever His plans are for you. I wish you the best. Stay safe.

Good Luck and I hope you feel better soon. I know you were talking about an apartment but I think Gastonia used to be a mill town and there are quite a few tiny sweet cottages strewn about town, maybe you will be able to have that flower garden after all...I know there is an old ice cream shoppe there too that we ate at and it is just like the old days soda shoppe...yum!!! I will be thinking of you and praying for a safe and happy move!

Hope you are feeling better, Alaura! Moving can be exciting, scary, fun, and stressful all mixed up into one. It sounds like you are really embracing the move. I wish you and your hubby all the best. No doubt you will have fun exploring your new location. Keep us all up to date! Take care of yourself in the process, though, with plenty of tea breaks to keep you physically and mentally rested. ; )

Hi Alaura,
Great news hubby found a job and you are taking the move on as a new adventure in your life.
It is hard to leave the kids, but with all the new computer camera's you will be able to see the kids right on your computer screen. We talk to my sister and brother n law that way, it's a lot of fun.
Packing isn't so bad its a great way to spring clean.
Take care and keep us posted on your move and trip to NC.

Hi Alaura, I am just catching up.

God puts you where you need to be, it may not be where you WANT to be...but just be patient. He knows best. We moved from New England to Colorado for a job for my was scary leaving everyone we knew and our family behind...and after being in Colorado for 6 years the Lord brought us to Seattle....the complete opposite of where we started off. It is scary but the Lord will provide and you need to trust in Him.

I was away from my DH for 3 months and it was hard...but it all came together and we are Blessed.
