Moving On Part II

Dear Friends,

A blessed Sabbath to you! I don't think I've ever looked forward to taking a day of rest as I have these past few weeks! It has been a blur of packing, painting, patching, and paperwork. We have one more set of papers to sign tomorrow, then our home will officially be placed on the market. Then we shall be doing our best impression of Mrs. Tittlemouse until Mr. Graham finds us a new home and we move out!

Friends from church helped us haul a load to the thrift store (Tasha not included)~

Who says packing can't be fun?

Things are looking whiter and whiter, and barer and barer around here!

Even Grandma Cherie came out to help paint~

Someone is feeling a little displaced!

Mr. Graham is driving to Missouri as we speak, where he will have a whirlwind of job- and- house- hunting! We were all very sad to see him go, but after the tears, we saw that life's departures teach us how much we should never take for granted the precious times we share with our loved ones in this life.

As we harvest the blessings of our time spent living in Idaho . . .

May we not forget to stop and enjoy the beauty around us.

Till next time,




  1. I am so impressed with all you have done! WOW! You really have been super busy! I am so glad you had help too, and were able to get so much done before your husband left to search for a place for you! I pray it continues to go well and smoothly (as it seems it is!) Thinking of you and wishing you a blessed Sabbath!


  2. Bless your heart! You have been quite busy and that little baby has grown. Missouri is a nice a place. I've driven all over the state and liked how it felt "midwestern" in the north and "southern" in the south.

    Best wishes to you all.

  3. Oh my.... you have accomplished so much! ;)
    Your precious babe is SO sweet! ;)

    May the Lord bless you richly!!

    Love~ Miss Jen

  5. Wow, such a busy time and you sound as though you are finding God's beautiful blessings even in such a time.
    Keeping you and your family in my prayers.
    Warm wishes, Tonya

  6. Such a time of uncertainty for you all Marqueta but what strength you are able to gain from each other....such a blessing. Take care all of you. Eli x

  7. What an amazing feat dear friend! You have accomplished so much. This is a new adventure for you and your lovely family...but everything is in Our Lord Jesus there is no need to fret, but instead enjoy the blessings and the new experiences that are to come :)


  8. I remember how exhausting packing was few years ago--take the rest when you can and I am praying for a smooth transition for you and family:-)
