Moves are bittersweet

Historic Louisville
Things are shaping up for a busy week. As we wrap up our time here in Georgia and prepare for the move to the Louisville area, our days are filled with bittersweet moments.
About a week ago, we enjoyed a family reunion of sorts as we all gathered together to celebrate my sweet pa-in-law's 70th birthday. Sweet.

This weekend, some special friends were passing through town, so we were able to meet up for dinner and say our goodbyes. Lunch with more special friends today, and a girls-only lunch rendezvous tomorrow. Sweet. Saying goodbye to these folks? Bitter... but I'm appreciating the sweet convenience of keeping in touch these days.

The kids were able to spend a bit of time with some cousins on Saturday. Sweet. And we got quite a bit of packing done. Not sure if that's bitter or sweet.

Today, we enjoyed meeting for worship with the unique body that is Faith Bible Church. Lots of good fellowship, too. Sweet. Only one more Sunday with them. Definitely bittersweet.

I have to add that watching the Braves swat the Nats again tonight for a three-game sweep is sweet. Very, very sweet.

The rest of this week?

A little minor surgery for my girly. Not exactly sweet, but we're so glad to get it done before the move.

Lots of details to take care of... lodging to secure, utilities to set up, schooling to continue. And more packing. Mostly sweet, because it's all part of making the transition happen and happen smoothly.

And of course, my hubby has plenty of sweet projects on his plate, too, both to help out his folks and to prepare to feed his new flock.

This week, we'll also be praying for our new little church family. Sweet, definitely.

And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God. (Philippians 1:9-11 ESV)
