What a weekend! The stress has been almost unbearable! Most of our things are in the new house but they're scattered all over the place. We can't seem to find anything. Even though we've had three garage sales we still have too much "stuff".

We're discouraged and we've found ourselves wondering whether we made the right move or not. I'm sure that it's Satan trying to bring us down but we need God's supernatural strength during these trying days.

I thank God, in Jesus' name, for each of the Pals who pray so faithfully.

David, I'm sorry to hear you are both so stessed. Moving at the best of times can be so disorienting and discouraging when you look at the unpacking to do! And, if it's as hot there as it is here, that sure makes it hard work too. I believe when you are more settled and unpacked you'll feel so much better. In a few weeks, you'll probably be preaching this to me as I stress about my own unpacking! :)

Oh that is too bad David..
Sometimes too much stuff can cause this discouragement and I found in our case it was almost unbearable when we moved too.
Bernie had to just put his foot down because he is not a pack rat, like I am! I had to give a lot of stuff away plus THROW a lot away.
We moved from a two story large house with a basement to a one floor small war time house no basement.
So I know in a little of what you are going through. I had to give away thousands of books and records and we STILL had too many.
Little missionary Julie is right, It IS hot so I hope that you don't work too hard in it..
Still thinking about you in this "trial" David...Love Terry

Dear DAvid,
I have not stopped praying.
The Lord who has lead you so far by your hand, will continue to do so.
Psalm 37:
7Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way,
You need to calm down and wait for the Lord , He will do it.
I know perhaps the rest of your family does not see things like you do. I am reminding the Lord of them as well.
Superhugs from Felisol

Oh my, I've had this stress myself before when we were still in transition. It feels awful, but with time, one step at a time, things will fall into place. Be sure to get enough rest each night if you can, so as to help your mind and body recuperate from the day's work. Don't doubt the decisions already made - there are no mistakes in the Lord. You've sought His guidance, and now He will sustain you. Keep trusting! And we are faithfully praying by your side!
