I'm not really sure if I should be happy or sad. This weekend will be a huge change in the Holcombe household. I have 2 kiddos moving out! Yes you heard it right.... 2! What will I do with all this extra space? Hmmmmm! So many choices!
Our son moved back home a year ago, after having been out on his own for a couple of years. He's trying to finish school and couldn't work as much these last few semesters. So...we rearranged and made room for him. He will be getting married in a couple of months and is moving into their little love shack! He will be preparing his home for his sweet bride while he's finishing school.
Our next mover is our sweet daughter. I can't begin to express my gratefulness to the Lord for what He's doing in her life. After much thought and prayer,asking God what He wanted her to do with her life... He answered. Not before closing a few doors that we have tried to open over the last year. Most of you have heard her beautiful voice. Well, she has been given an opportunity to go to a school to learn how to lead worship. Which we believe this is a calling in her life! God has placed a beautiful family in our lives that will be working with her over the next several months. Teaching her and giving her many opportunities to share the gift she has been given. She won't be able to work a job while learning, so this is a big change for a girl who has had a job since the age of 14. Her first lesson....Total dependence on God! I am so excited for her and can't wait to watch all He has planned for her as it unfolds. Sunday morning she will be singing during communion. You can watch our service via internet Here for the live webcast. Look in the upper right hand corner of the website for the link. Please be praying for her. She has never lived away from home and this in itself will be a big change!
One more thing.....My son is coming home for a visit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And for his brothers wedding! I can't begin to tell you how much we miss him. I look forward to hugging that big ole boy who is now a college student in a foreign country and playing football again for a new semi pro league. 6 months is a long time to be away from your mama.... even if you are 27!
Now what to do with that extra room?! Pinterest here I come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
