It's also a good reminder -- as the chaos of packing a house to move gets stretched out even longer -- that how I respond is the TEST. I could choose to get angry and blame someone for the delay.

Or, I can just keep filling boxes and stacking them in our garage, certain in the faith that everything will work out just as it should.

We won't be in our new house by Halloween, but we should be there by Thanksgiving.
