Details and focus

Ok - I just need to say this! So many details that need to be considered BUT no time to deal with them. There is work to do! Much work to do! I have a conference in 2 weeks that needs (and deserves) my attention. The details have to wait! Or do they? We are so blessed to have a support group within our company that helps with details! We're finding when we put the need out there, someone may already be prepared to cut the work for us in half. I wonder if it's a form of self-interest to hold onto all the "details" as if we're the only one who can take care of them.

What am I learning from this? FOCUS - FOCUS - FOCUS. I spend my time on what I'm focused on. If I focus on the Lord, He'll take care of the details. If I focus on the details .... you get the picture. The enemy wants us to focus on the details. He wants us to be overwhelmed by the details! When our focus changes - refocus! Stop! Close our eyes! Look up! Refocus!

Enough said.

It's official!

Decisions, decisions! It's been a wild ride these last six months. From one day to the next, we didn't know where we would be in a year. We've heard opinions from people all over the world about what we should do. We've seen the "impossible" become the "possible". And, in the end one voice was the only one we needed to hear. It's that same voice that brought us here in the first place - and it's the only voice that really matters to me.

In a little over three months, we'll pack up the few possessions we have and head back across the Atlantic. First stop, Rockledge, Florida where my sister lives. After a couple of weeks, we'll do a road trip through S.C., N.C. and possibly a stop in Georgia before we start the task of finding jobs.

Join me here for updates and for my honest thoughts as I ....marsha, am once again, on the move!
