Through The Lens Thursday #18

I'm a little behind getting this posted today. I have so much going on preparing for the move. I have several blog posts I want to write, I just need to find the time to do them. We found a place to rent during Thanksgiving break. It's a nice house built in the mid-90s which means we have some hideous really cool salmon colored counter-tops in the kitchen and the bathrooms. The rest of the house is great though with more space that we were counting on including a nice sized pantry in the kitchen. I love pantries! Unfortunately, I got the word yesterday that this move just might be temporary and that we might be moving again sometime next year. I have so many feelings going on about this news. After a little mini-meltdown at church last night I have a slightly better perspective on it today. Thankfully, two sweet friends sat with me as I talked & cried to them last night and then they prayed with me. One sent me a sweet note this morning with some scripture to soak in. Truthfully, I'm tired of moving. We've moved so many times. I was really hoping this move would be it. And really, it might be. There's only a chance we could move again next year. It's not guaranteed. And I know if God moves us again then there will be a reason for it.

Proverbs 3:5-6
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight

Our trip last week was nice though. Our Thanksgiving feast consisted of boiled shrimp, fried shrimp, homemade potato salad, boiled corn, mac-n-cheese(since Baby Girl doesn't eat shrimp) and Key Lime pie(we needed something green on our plates). Not a traditional feast but oh, so good! The weather was cool but we did manage to spend some time strolling on the beach. I couldn't believe there were some people out there swimming. Brr! Here's a look at our trip.

Each Thursday I share a glimpse at life through the lens. If you'd like to participate, leave a comment with a link to your blog.

Awesome pictures this time!! I am so sorry for your heart ache. I grew up moving a lot. I took a lot of goof things away from it, and would not be the person I am today had I not had those experiences... however I do understand the heartache... more then you know. I pray that it all turns out as it should...

I hope you don't have to move again. I'll be praying for you. The salmon color sounds "wonderful." : )
I would have loved your Thanksgiving meal.

I'm still laughing at the had key lime pie because we needed something green on the plate;) That's what you need to do-keep that sense of humor helps keep the balance. Sorry for the unknown future. But it's always unknown, we just sometimes think we know what is going on. I think God was/is trying to teach me that when He kept on keeping us here, although I kept expecting to'll be in my prayers
