Just Bring Me Chocolate and I'll BeOkay!

It's been awhile since I've joined my good friend Nan for Making My Home Sing, and I think it's about time I did something about that.

See my home hasn't been singing to much the last couple of weeks.
Most of you know that our house was on the market. It's actually been on the market 3 different times in the past 5 years.
So as our contract was almost up, we decided that once it went off the market we would really sit and evaluate what we believed the Lord wanted us to do. Because WE thought He wanted us to get off the beach.
We resided to our home not selling and pressed on with life.
To make a long story short, we got a phone call from our Realtor and said someone has put an offer in on our home. WHAT? It's off the market in like 2 days?
Needless to say we signed a contract the LAST day our house was on the market.
God does have a sense of humor. Right? RIGHT? And HIS timing is PERFECT! Right? RIGHT?

Anyway, we signed just a little over a week ago and I immediately started packing, then stressing, then packing some more, then stressing some more, then NOT packing, and stressing some more. I kept taking all the details out of God's hands. I'm pretty sure He doesn't appreciate that. Oy!
So to make an even longer story short. I'm packing again, in faith, that God has it all worked out. Our closing date is the 21st of June. So if you were going to send me something (chocolate) you better send it (chocolate) now, because haven't I told you, we don't have a place to go yet. LOL!

We have a place we want to purchase but it's a short sale. Yeah, some of you just went, OH NO! With good reason. BUT, once again, God has THAT under control too.
So this week, as I'm PACKING (and wishing for someone to bring me chocolate and coffee), I'll be singing. Singing because I have a God that cares about every detail of our life and HE knows just how this is all going to work out!
Prayers (and chocolate) are appreciated though. LOL!




  1. Oh, my friend! I am praying for you. Moving is so hard, and deifnitely harder with not having a place to move to.

    (((Hugs))) and prayers, Kim!


  2. Kim,

    That is awesome but in a stressful kind of way. You know that if I was near I would rush some your way.
    Hang in there...

    Have a beautiful Memorial Day!

  3. Hey girl..boy I am standing in your shoes!! My sisters came in for the wedding..and they took one look at my house..and said wow you weren't kidding everything is packed up..duh!! I know God has a plan for us..and we are on the road to the plan..It's just hard not to take another road!!lol
    Hang in there!! I'm proud of you!!
    My advice..label..label..label..just in case you have to put it in storage!! I tried to find something the other day and had to open 6 boxes..that just said MB closet..oyyyyyy

    Keep the music around you..it's proven to relieve stress..so does humming.

    Hugs and prayers..Cindy from Rick-Rack and Gingham

  4. I have no doubt that you make your home sing with laughter every single day.

    Anyhow, praying for you.


  5. Oh my gosh, how crazy is all that?! Congratulations! I know all too well about your stress level. I'll be unpacking for weeks to come, LOL. I would send you chocolate but the summer heat would melt it! So how about a good ol' cyberhug instead? {{{{{HUGS}}}}}

  6. And I thought the hard part was selling the house - now I see that is only the beginning. I am with you on the coffee and chocolate - it makes all things better for me!

  7. How about tomorrow? Can you hold on till then? Coffee/Chocolate...on the way...LOL..what type of chocolate would you like by the way?

  8. Oh Honey congrats on the offer. I've so been in your shoes. Chocolate and prayers can be so calming.
    Sending you best wishes on a smooth closing and here's to your new chapter in life, where ever that may be!

  9. Congratulations!

  10. Sending you cyber chocolate asap!!! hershey kisses, godiva yep all the good stuff you could ever dream of!
    Trusting and standing with you! Can't even wait to see how the Lord has this all play out!

    Praying with and for you my friend

  11. Wow! I'm excited and nervous too!! But, you're right, God does have it under control!!! I can't wait to hear what happens, Kim!!!!

  12. I'm glad to have you join us! We got an offer on our previous home the night before our contract was up on the house we now live in. I thought for sure we weren't moving.

    We started packing and then I received a phone call that we wouldn't be moving for three weeks, so we stopped packing.

    Then we got a phone call that we were closing and moving THAT weekend and I said "But you said we had three weeks!"

    We were still packing the day of our move and didn't finish packing and moving into this house until midnight. It was ridiculous and stressful but we did it (thanks to the help of our friends).

    Thanks for joining us today!

  13. So exciting!! I pray it all goes great.

  14. So exciting and so stressful my friend! I'm glad you are packing in faith - I love that! You KNOW I am praying for you every day my friend!! And I'm glad you have Kathy close by to get you your coffee and chocolate! :)

    Big I-ate-some-chocolate-tonight-for-you-did-that-help? size HUGS to you!! Love ya!!

  15. In my thoughts that all goes well - worry doesn't solve anything anyway. I have both coffee and chocolate but the distances is the problem.

    Keep on smiling and laughing:)


  16. Will be praying for you. I have done the packing without knowing where we were moving to thing before.

    You have our hugs and prayers

    Mrs. B

  17. I do not envy you! I hope you get settled soon:-)

  18. Gotta come ck out my post today! Took a pic of some pop JUST FOR YOU! hint hint ~ it's chocolate :)

  19. Praying for you, Kim! God has it all under control. I'm believing that every detail will work out.

    Do you have a Harry and David's store near you? Because, girl, if you want some chocolate, you need to try their chocolate truffles...they are a.w.e.s.o.m.e!!!! ;-)

  20. Kim,
    Bless your chocolate-loving'-heart!! It certainly sounds like God is working out His plan in your lives and that is a beautiful thing dear one.

    Hang in there and enjoy the ride!!!

    Have a Blessed day,

  21. Kim, I had to come and read about all that's been happening.

    Trust and obey; that's my theme for this year ...and always.

    I can only encourage you to do the same.

    Love you,

  22. Congratulations! I'm almost jealous!

    When we made the decision to move to Indiana, it was on faith alone. Somewhere along the way, anxiety gave way to excitement as we watched God open door after door. It became an adventure in faithbuilding for the whole family.

    I'm praying the same for you guys!

    Oh, and incase you get desparate...there is STILL a cute little house in my neighborhood for sale...Lol!

  23. Oh, wow! Sounds like things are moving along quickly. Our God is such a last minute kind of guy, isn't He? He sure wants us to grow in Faith. He did the same thing with us and Michael's job last year. Whew! I'm praying all will work out for guys perfectly!


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
