doing what feels like the impossible

packing a house you have lived in for 11 years. 11 years of stuff everywhere. Every drawer, closet, cabinet, nook and cranny...everywhere. One thing I am thankful for is I am notorious for loading up my car with stuff and heading to Goodwill. I love cleaning out closets and getting rid of stuff we don't need. That has made this process so much easier but man...we still have alot of stuff. 
As of now we still are not sure on the closing date. The inspection report came back. They told us what they wanted fixed and we responded. We just heard back from them last night and were assured they are very serious about buying the house but have concerns about a rafter in the attic. Soooooo...the deal is if they want us to fix it we close Dec 1. If they want to take the house as it is with a little money we are offering for them to fix it we close Nov 17. As in 10 days. Yikes. We told them we have to know by this evening. So we wait and wait and wait. This process has really showed me how little in my life I really can control. I am giving all of this to God and in times I feel overwhelmed and frustrated I sit back and pray. In that I find the peace I need to move forward. While they may seem hard in the present I love these moments in life where God shows you who is really in control :)
