Many people were die-hard fans of the television show 24. I used to watch it until I realized that I really don’t like violence and it had a LOT of violence. Well, I’m in my own “24” countdown right now and my heart is racing… In 24 days our moving van will be loaded and pulling away from the house we've called home for the last 13 years.
Our real-life drama is playing out before my eyes and part of me wants to “change the channel” in hopes it will all go away. A few weeks ago my oldest earned his Master’s degree and is getting married next month, my #3 son graduates from high school, and we have to coordinate getting our daughter home from her school in England. As we head to Illinois, we’re leaving behind our almost college freshman so he can work here this summer, hopefully one cat that won’t adjust well to Chicago winters, lots of friends we love, and hearts full of memories. Our youngest daughter is going with us along with a dog, cat and all our belongings.
It’s sure to be an adventure this summer that could rival any Fox program and I’m claiming Deuteronomy 31:8 that states “The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” The clock is ticking… I will try to be fearless like Jack Bauer!
