Gut wisdom...

For every box I pack, I feel sicker inside. 
My gut is screaming at me.
Don't move
until you have a place to go...
Don't
List
the house...
YET.
 I feel I am doing the splits...
One leg is in Nevada
and one is in California
WHAT IS HOLDING ME BACK??!!
Maybe my gut knows
the house would sell fast
and with Murphy's Law...sure as shootin'...
It probably will, 
If we don't have a house to move to...
Maybe it is not the right time...
Maybe there is something here,
still left undone...
I don't know
except to
Listen to my gut...

You are doing the right thing by moving ( I feel) Maybe you won't find a house right away in CA and maybe you will but that will be ok!! It is just the packing that is hard on you. Take a break and take care of you!

Thank you Gayle...we had a wonderful message in church this morning. Really hit home. The Pastor spoke of walking in faith. Had a great discussion with good friends last night at dinner and then after church this morning. What a blessing they are! We enjoy our time together, but they want the best for us and they said the best, is in California with our kids and grand kids, closer to family.

If your house sells fast and you don't have another lined up, it's just a bump in the road. The big picture is what we should focus on. Isn't that what Jesus tells us?

Praying that you have a smooth road ahead for this leg of your journey.

Yes, Lily, thanks for reminding me. I know. I also know I should give it up to HIM...but I still worry about spending money we don't have to on extra moving and renting, etc. Bottom line...trust in the Lord...but do everything I can with the gifts and skills God gave me in the mean time...

Your dilemma sounds like ours. We are contemplating a move to the Seattle area (from Kansas) to live with our son and DIL. They need us and I need the help with my husband. My daughter and grandson have lived with us for four years, but she's getting married and moving on; we'll have an empty house and too much house for just us. I can't take care of it, he can't do anything about it, and his children from his first marriage rarely even call him, let alone come see him.

So, he asked about going to live with our son and DIL where we could help her with the kids and she could help me with him. Son is in the Navy and gone a lot; they have two small children with one more on the way. It would be beneficial to all.

Problem is the timing - putting this house on the market at just the right time, them finding a handicap accessible house with enough bedrooms/bathrooms (separate living quarters is ideal), and all the other minute details.

Talking to God is about the only way to get through it.

Oh WOW Theresa...Kansas to Seattle?! But at least you have somewhere to live...right? Or are they looking for a bigger house to accommodate all of you? That is a dilemma though, because if there are issues, you are stuck, no place to go...that is really tough. I agree, prayer and talking to God is the best solution... thank you for your input and do stop in again.
