I Was Given a Song

Woke up this morning to another song playing in my heart and it made me smile for three reason.

“Hold on, to me as we go
As we roll down this unfamiliar road
And although this wave is stringing us along
Just know you’re not alone
Cause I’m going to make this place your home”

1. I love when this happens
2. Yesterday I read this post from Mary DeMuth I Need a Song
3. God is good!

My husband comes home today! He’s been down in Georgia for a month starting a new job. The plan is for him to fly in today, pack up the house, and make the 11 hour drive back to our new “home” on Tuesday…which for the time being will be my brother-in-law’s basement

This last month has been quite a journey for my husband and his Georgia based family. My mother-in-law’s health has taken a turn for the worse. As she struggles with days of maintaining and days of looking like she might not make it, we haven’t been sure about when to make the big move. My husband is coming home as planned…but we are not sure his mom will be able to hang on until we get back. We pray we can make it back home to say goodbye.

I am thankful my husband has been able to be back in Georgia with his family (for such a time as this) after 13 years of living in NC. The way God arranges the calendar and puts us where we need to be never ceases to amaze me.

So, in case I get so busy and distracted packing a house over the next couple days and don’t say this often enough…thank you, LORD!

    He has always taken places we are and made them home for us. I’ll be praying for your family. Sorry to hear about your mother-in-law. I’m glad that none of our circumstances in life surprise God.

    Whenever I get up with a song in my heart from the Lord, it reminds me that I belong to Him. What a great reminder to start off our day!

    Where in Georgia will you be relocating?

      Yes, I agree Shelley. It reminds me that He cares about and is in every moment of our day.
