With each box we pack, there is a memory or more to go through.  Every scrap of paper, every photograph deserves our attention as we decide whether to save or toss them.  In the middle of all this clutter and confusion is the glimpse of light that is pushing its way into our lives.  There comes a time to say good bye to old memories and look forward with anticipation to making new ones.

We’ve lived in our home for 24 years so you can imagine the amount of collected things and clutter we’ve accumulated.  We also accumulated things from both of our mothers after their passing along with a studio of art equipment and art which had been living in a different location for a number of years.

God has an amazing plan for my husband and I as we take the next step in our lives together.  We will be putting our house up for sale in a week.  We’ve been talking about doing this for the past three years and are finally taking that giant leap of faith.

When you reach a certain age, you think that all things will stay the same until you die, but they don’t. We can learn to accept change or we can sit around and pout about it for the rest of our lives.  We are anxious to get the process rolling and begin this final chapter.

My trepidation and angst will soon fade away as I plant a new garden, decorate our new house and finally have enough extra cash to travel a little and not have to work so hard to survive.  It’s time to start living.

All of our days are numbered and we have been given this time on earth for a purpose – to share the love of God with others.  What a great gift to pass on.



About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  1. like you Kathy–I’ve accumulated both of my grandmothers and mother’s this and thats…at the time when we built this house—it was in deed bigger then our previous home but seemed necessary with all the furniture and things in raising our family—now that it’s just my husband and I and all this “stuff”—the thought of downsizing is most appealing…and then we think of where to begin…
    Happy moving Kathy—

      I think this is one of the most stressful times for me, because I love security and avoid change in my life. I know that it’s the best thing to do and we will have a great new house and a new beginning, but still I struggle with all the details. Wish it wouldn’t be so hard.

    Moving is always hard, but I love the cleansing it brings. May the Lord bless you during this time of transition!
