I’m so happy this specific week is finally upon us. We’ve all missed Zack terribly, terribly, terribly, and later this week he is flying in for a weekend visit. The kids are going to be all giggles when they see him, I can’t wait. And let’s be honest, I’m sure there’ll be some tears. We’ve had a lot of heartfelt ups and downs the last few weeks. Turns out moving across the country requires a lot of details ;) And, waiting for the details. I’m grateful for extra patience, because our plans have changed many times since we landed in Michigan mid-December. It will be wonderful to have Zack with us for a few days.
During this time of waiting and transition, our family is resting on our faith. There are a few specific things we’re “in the waiting room” over, and like my mom shared with me before I went up to bed last night, We mustn’t worry about it, because God has a plan. And I know it is good; not at all impossible.
Also very exciting happening this week: we’re moving into our new house! It’s a three bedroom ranch in the Detroit-metro area with a fenced-in back yard, and a basement, and it feels very dreamy to finally be at this stage with our move. I’m so happy Zack will be with us as we unpack our things and create a new home together :) I’ll be back soon with some more details! Wishing you a happy week, friends!

I’m so excited for you, Maggie! A new home near family must be like a dream come true. Rest in Him. He’ll work out the details. Hugs!
Maggie, I feel strongly prompted to tell you that the Lord has chosen this particular season of “pain” in your state to move your family back home. He has a special new work He wants you to be a part of. I’ve no notion what that is, but He will reveal it to you in His time. Meanwhile, allow me to tell you what a blessing your posts are. I offer my prayers for only the happiest and best for your little family of 4 and a half! ;-)
Thank you Loni :) :)
Our family recently moved back to Minnesota from Las Vegas and we’ve been in the waiting room too (love the way you phrased that). It’s a hard place to be, but we’re learning so so much about Jesus and trust and patience. Know that you aren’t alone in your waiting and that, yes, God is really good, even in the midst of it. ❤️
Oh, how wonderful to be moving in your new home! You must be so lonely and tired without Zack… hang in there! God is doing amazing & mighty things. :-) Enjoy the next few days with your Hubs! :-)
Oh my gosh, unbelievably! xx
That’s very exciting but scary I am sure! So glad hubby is coming home for a bit! Can you email me what city you are in…..we may be close!
We will be in Madison Heights — is that near you?
I look forward to glimpses of your new home. It’s all so exciting! And so great that you have such great support from fam during the transition. xoxo
and pardon the redundant use of “great.” LOL
LOVED IT! :)
[…] all the daydreams about our new house in Madison Heights. I picked out a new headboard for our bedroom (!!!), and I’m thinking about fun new ways to […]
I wish you all the best at your new home! It is great that you are together with your family because the transition is usually not an easy process! Have a great time in Detroit!
