Updating Life in the Waiting Room...

I think that most of us can relate to waiting daily.

When I realized what I'd written in my last post, I realized I'd shared more on Twitter (MarinaWrites) than I had on my blog. Oops! I apologize for the delay, the lack of posting, the missing news. I'm really sorry!!

What I'd failed to reveal - I didn't reveal - because I've been going 0 - 90 for the past few weeks. Mark was offered the job (and accepted) and gave his 3 week notice (it was meant to be a 2 week notice, but he was traveling when he received the offer).

Since then I've been painting, projecting, cleaning, packing, re-packing and living life daily. We've filled out paperwork, met with 2 realtors, and have had a dozen bankers calling at all hours of the day for a mortgage on a house we haven't even looked for (or at).

Just yesterday, our daughter and sil found out that they have found an apartment - a HUGE step in emptying the house, and redoing some of the items that need completing around the house. It's so much easier to repaint when there aren't little fingers to "help".

This week I'm keeping the 2 youngest grandkids, (one who is waking from his nap now....). Mark leaves at the end of the week, and starts his new job a week from Monday. I'm going to miss him!! Please be praying for us, our time apart, and his adapting to his new job and new responsibilities. Pray we both grow in our love for God, and trust Him to keep us close in heart. That we find time to stay connected, even though we'll both have busy schedules.

I'll update again....sooner or later....

Merry Christmas

I've been really busy, and not busy enough. My heart has been breaking in unexpected places the past few months...friends passing away unexpectedly, illnesses attacking loved ones, me missing kids and grandkids, and not wanting to feel nostalgic for all the sadness around my heart right now. I feel tender and raw...vulnerable. I cry at the drop of a hat, even over silly things, like TALKING about not watching a movie that would make me cry...not even watching that movie. Just talking about it. Oh dear! I did want to touch base though as we approach Christmas...all the sadness is making me draw even nearer to Jesus, because He is my hope (and the hope of the world). I've enjoyed my time of Advent, singing in the choir at church, baking cookies for friends and neighbors. It helps me to shift gears emotionally and mentally when I can change it up a bit and do something new. And in God's goodness, He is allowing us to do something new for Christmas! I'll share the detai

Romans 12, Parts 2 and 3: Balanced and Beautiful in Christ

The new posts that I wrote for Balanced and Beautiful in Christ are now live on their Facebook page, and here on my new blog site (subscribe there so you don't miss a thing!). It's been a crazy few weeks (ok...are we going on several months now??) but I'm grateful that God had me write (and schedule) these several weeks ago. I pray that the words bless you and draw you closer to Himself.  Blessings, marina
