Taking a break...

 ...I've got things to do and places to go!
I will try to give brief updates and may even get around to visit here and there.
As you might imagine, life is crazy right now and about to get even crazier!
Sunday is a landmark birthday and I will officially be "old".
Old??? Me???
Love y'all!

Hello my friends...

Let me first start out with an apology.
I'm sorry for not replying back to comments on my last post and commenting on yours.
My procedure went as planned but left me feeling nauseous for days,
in fact, I'm still experiencing some of it as we speak.

See that thorn?

But...and this is a BIG BUT...
...that is really not quite all that's been happening around here.
You may remember at the end of my last post that I mentioned something about
 sharing some news that might be coming soon?

So amazingly, we put our house on the market just last Friday.

That is in three. days. ago. last Friday.

That would be Friday, August 30th last Friday.

There was an offer on the table by the end of the day after six showings.
The offer was for $2000 over asking price...yes, that's what I said.
Our realtor suggested to let it ride a bit to see what the next day's showings would bring.

So we spent most of the weekend away from home with fur babies in tow,
and on Saturday there were more showings scheduled throughout the day, 
still thinking there was not going to be a better offer out there...
I mean, how could it get any better, right? one more day to go and we were going to cancel anymore showings...
...and WOW...did that ever pay off.
Yesterday afternoon, yet another offer came in at $10,000 over the listed price!
Are you kidding me...I didn't know people did such crazy things!
It seems many people out there want to move to our fair city,
the booming little place it has become in the 27 years we have been here.
Our trusted realtor thought everything looked good and by 6PM last evening,
we were signing (and quite a bit of initialing) on the dotted line.
Our closing date is October 10 but will heading for the hills the weekend before.

Is God good or what?

As I am sitting here typing these words, the whole thing is just so surreal.
All I gotta say is, reality better kick in real soon 'cause we got LOTS to do in the next few weeks!
Tomorrow I will write up my resignation letter (after 26 years),
and will work through mid-September, taking vacation my last two weeks to pack.
Bittersweet, to be sure....but more sweet as I anticipate this dream starting to become a reality.

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

Ephesians 3:20-21

So as Hurricane Dorian swirls around in the Atlantic,
we are already experiencing our own kind of whirlwind here.
Oh...another good thing...we won't have to worry about hurricanes in Tennessee...
...only tornadoes. 😟

And speaking of hurricanes...
...I am praying for the safety of everyone, known and unknown,
who is in the path of this monster storm.
~May the Lord keep you safe under His wings.~
