“God be praised for His mercy! I have seen a little sunshine–
I have had a happy time.”
For home is where the heart is
And my heart is anywhere you are
Anywhere you are is home
Songwriters: Hal David / Sherman Edwards
(Sometimes referred to as the “kudzu of the north”, oriental bittersweet
is a non-native species that continues to grow and spread in Ohio.
The vine is popping up in our woods, fence rows, landscapes, and places in between.
Ohio State University)
This is not a post about invasive vines or that of taste…the bitter and the sweet…
this, on the other hand, is just a brief post about the bittersweet of the heart.
This is a long story, of which I will elaborate upon when time allows,
but in a nutshell, we put our house of 21 years on the market about 3 weeks ago.
The house we built and nurtured all these years.
Out of the blue, we received a quick and sudden offer late last week.
Too good not to accept.
In what appears to be a sudden, somewhat rash decision, we have actually
been ruminating over such for a couple of years…
the desire for a closer proximity to grandkids…
there is nowhere to go— yet.
And there is a lot of work to start doing, NOW.
And so my time here in cookieland will become a hit and miss…
a coming and a going…that is until things are purged, packed, boxed
and eventually found and settled.
A new journey…but…
I don’t like upheaval or uncertainty.
I prefer consistency.
I am a homebody, who is soon to be without a home.
But God’s hand has been way too evident in this latest chapter.
I’ll keep you posted while I ask that you keep us in your prayers!!!
