I find it interesting that looking back even a few months makes one see the present so clearly.
Today I realized that God's kindness back in August prepared us for this season of showing the house and preparing to move across the country in two short months. In August, because of what appeared to be certain circumstances of job loss, we prepared to move ourselves out of Alaska to a less expensive place. We cleaned out closets, repaired the little things in the house, made decisions about what furniture to sell and keep and what cars to sell. It was a lot of work, but the fruit of that labor is being harvested this month. I am free to recover from major surgery while the house is being shown because that work was done!
Of course, between August and January, there was more than enough uncertainty. Even things that seemed certain have changed. Living in the moment, giving and taking as much from each day as possible brings me to this day with few regrets.
These months have once again reinforced what I learned and internalized many years ago - God IS good and fully trustworthy.
