Soft Landing in Austin!
SOOOOOOO we landed in Austin last night.... and Paul Pleasant was our official welcoming committee!
I'm a bit brain dead from driving 21 hours in 2 days...... and glad to be sitting on something that is NOT moving!!! My dog Selah is alive and semi-happy she's just a sniff'in everything. (except Amy's Garden ;-) DnA are in California so we are staying at their house and Derek set a welcoming table for us.. complete with wine - chocolate - and a few designated items to make my heart warm and mushy.... i sooo can't wait to see 'em on Sunday!!! We can't move in to our temp housing till tomorrow - so today was our Sabbath! I've done about nothing but rest... water plants... rest some more.... It was 80 -ish and breezy today... Soft for the landing. We're hoping to meet some new friends tomorrow... cuz we need help getting the stuff OFF the Big Truck. Please pray for us on that one.....
We will be renting a house for 3 months (lease) - but need to be outta there by then or the rent doubles... and 2,500 is crazy to pay for housing... ummmm please pray for us on that one too.... OH heck... we just need prayers during this season of transition anyway!!!
I'm a tad too tired to blog... but wanted to shout out... we made it.
And a huge thank you to all those that helped us prep- box- pack- and loved on us!! It was felt deeply and i'm already missing some dear ones! But that pain is a good one... b/c the love is thick!!!!!!
More to come... i need to sit and journal some - God was talking thru most of the drive.... and the worship in the car was Kabod Heavy! Jonathan David Helser's new CD is out... and it's SMOK'IN with blue flame heat on it!!! Played it for 21 hours of the drive and released it over 6 States that we drove through!!! Changing the Atmosphere!!!
shalom ya all!
