Pulling Up Stakes

Well, we are just under 48 hours from our big move across the world. It was a very hard weekend, full of emotional goodbyes and hard, strenuous work.

To all of our beloved friends here in Miami, we will miss you more than you know. For all my complaining about this city, you have made it wonderful.

To my future friends in Qatar, I can't wait to meet you in real life and get to know you.

To all my visitors here at The Simple Life at Home, thank you for your encouragement and kind words. They have helped more than you know.

I will probably not be posting for a week or so until we can get there and begin to get settled. If I could ask for prayers one more time?

*~* That our trip will be comfortable, on time and safe. We have a long journey of 22 hours ahead of us.

*~* That our little puppy, Snow, will arrive safely and in good health. Ok, she's 7, not actually a puppy, but she's our little puppy

~*~ That our belongings would arrive soon. Apparently the boat did not reach port on March 21 as scheduled and is not scheduled to arrive until April 1. This means we will be there for almost two weeks with no furniture.

~*~ For a smooth transition for all of us, but particularly my children. That they would make friends quickly and easily and settle into live in Doha.

Thanks again! Be back as soon as I can!

Lori, I think of you and this move almost daily - and I don't know if I could do it. I am challenged by your courage and I am praying that God will you completely with His strength and Presence over the next few days.

Love,

Jess

Thanks for your kind words. I appreciate it. You said exactly what I'm feeling.

I've already prayed for you and your family. I can't imagine doing it. You are exceptionally courageous. Your husband is so blessed to have you for a wife. I don't think I could do it.

We'll be anxiously awaiting a good report!
