Time Flies

Gasp... after nearly two weeks, I am back to my blog. Even my mom hinted that it was time for a new post so here goes...

Things have been a blur here as we get our house ready to sell. Things are starting to look pretty good with only a few jobs (some larger than others...) remaining to be done. Since I last wrote, we have installed new carpet which was very overdue but really makes the house look great, painted 3 bedrooms, a hallway, bathroom cabinets and touch ups on the kitchen ones as well. Barb is becoming chief painter and is doing an excellent job.

Oh yeah... we also re-arranged our house and what was our bedroom is now the office/studio and what was the boys room has become the master bedroom again. Changing carpet is as much work as moving as everything needs to be removed and then set up again.

In addition, the boys have started baseball which is taking another 8 hours plus/week. So... it's been busy but exciting as we get ready for our next steps.

Speaking of next steps, here's what's happening...

1. Our MLA Prayer Breakfast is happening fast. We continue to receive positive responses and I'm excited about that. I would love to have every MLA there, but I'm not about to despise small beginnings either. I really applaud my board and others who believed in this when it was just a dream. We are still a long ways from being where we want it to be, but we are on our way. Blessed are the believers!

2. Our house will go on the market in the next few weeks. I think we'll have some "out of province" painters come in to help us finish a few jobs, but we are well on our way. It's funny how you live with all the things you don't like and then change them when it's time to sell.

3. I'll be in Victoria for a few days at the end of the month for some speaking engagements, our pastors conference and the MLA breakfast. It will be a busy week for sure.

This is a high pressure period of our lives and we really need our friends and partners to be praying for us as we move forward. There are a lot of big decisions to be made and making the right choices, steps and decisions is more important than ever. Please pray for us as we move forward.

We know all about "fixing up to sell", so with our current house we took possession a month before we moved in to "fix it up to enjoy now"!! Plus we did tons of renos last summer like the kitchen etc - WAY more work than moving! We're pretty good painters now too... I cut in & Miles rolls - but we're not too close to Kamloops, sorry we can't help :)

We start baseball in a couple weeks too! (Jr.Rookie! - the beginning of the beginning - should be some good entertainment anyways!)

All the best in your transitions - we'll for sure keep you in our prayers :)
