stretched.... to snap? Hasn’t this been going on way too long? Oh, how I wish I knew what was going to happen.


Last year, if you had told me I would spend over a year living at my mother-in-law’s house while my husband worked the North Dakota rigs, followed by a (hopefully) 6 weeks at my parents’ very small house, and still have no solid prospects on the house search; (My family? Practically homeless!?) I would have asked you, “where do I sign off!?” To know too much is to risk giving up.

One day at a time. A person can do anything one day at a time. During these times, don’t look back; also, don’t look too terribly far forward. When you are on a tightrope, focus on what is at hand and keep your cool, or else you will fall.

How do we cope? A cup of coffee with a loved one, a good workout, and time in prayer keep me going. What works for you?

I still don’t know what is going to happen in the next 5 weeks. Will we finally sign on a house? Will we explore options B, C, or… Z? All I know is that God will not allow me to be tempted beyond what I can bear. (1 Cor. 10:13)

If I am a rubber band, I am equipped to stretch until God says, “Enough.”


Until then, my friends, one day at a time.
