I am so happy that you have landed in my little corner of cyberspace. If you join me here, you will, hopefully, get to know a little about me. You will read my thoughts, my hopes and dreams, and see some of my favorite things. I hope you will visit often. I will try to update it regularly and hopefully you will see an improvement in the blog along the way. Thank you for stopping in to see me as I travel on this journey called "life"!

On repeat....

Currently on my Ipod....

It is a reminder to me that no matter what it looks like to my natural eye....chaos....or what it feels like in the natural....like sitting on top of a very high roller coaster in a car that is about to head very fast, straight down...no matter how many plans that I "don't" have for what lies next on our journey...I truly don't have any concrete plans for what lies next ...my wonderful Father is in control and I can rest easy in that....or at least give it my best shot! He is certainly ready for me to let Him be in control.  Why is that so hard for me?  It's not like I don't see His hand in all that has been transpiring and is currently transpiring in our lives.

We are heading for a new "normal" in our lives (whatever that means!) and it's exciting, if not more than a little scary.

Thanks for taking time to stop by and join me for this journey. We are almost completely packed up and organized.  The truck is reserved....the young college students that we have hired to help us are resting their strong backs, I hope...and we move on Saturday.  yay! 

This move is so temporary that I'm packing very thoughtfully and not even going to unpack very much at the new place.  It's going to be a camping adventure for a time.

I hope to have lots more time next week to blog and visit and comment on all the wonderful blogs that I love to read and bloggy friends that I enjoy visiting....but I may not.  We will see what happens next!

Be blessed today and everyday....


  1. God bless you as you make this move and as you 'cast all your care upon Him.' We'll be looking forward to hearing from you!

  2. Awe Candace, you sure know how to shuffle! I'm amazed that you guys got all of this done so quickly! Blessings to you on your move and can't wait to see where this next adventure leads you!

  3. Good luck with everything Candace - a new adventure is exciting!

  4. Fast. That's the word that keeps popping into my thoughts. Good for you!

    BTW, since you haven't been swinging past each and every loved blog, you may have missed the post in which I wrote about my Baton Rouge trip being canceled...for now.


  5. Aw, moving already! I hope it all goes well, good thing in hiring college students!!!!! I know about the roller coaster thing.... :)

  6. This has been like a roller coaster ride I think ~ although it's slowing down a bit. You've done an amazing job in handling all this and I know He has given you the strength. Who knows what the Master Plan is? You will be guided and the "new normal" will be revealed.

    Have a blessed weekend my friend!

  7. I've never heard this before! I love it!

  8. I have and will continue to keep you in my prayers. I hope you soon find another beautiful, peaceful home and your unplanned "camping trip" won't last too long.
    Best of luck in your new endeavors, whatever they might be. I'm looking forward to reading about your new adventure!

  9. Oh what a lovely adventure awaits you! I look forward to reading about all the changes God is bringing about in your life!

  10. I hope your move went well! I have been thinking about you and praying for peace in this chaotic period :)

  11. What a great post. I hope the move went well. I can't wait to hear about the many adventures you have been on through this process.
    Have a fabulous day!

  12. Thanks for stopping by today Candace! Sounds like the move went well and glad to know you are trusting in our Lord to carry you through the journey! XOXO
