On Thursday May 7th, I said to two people in a conversation, "I will continue to run this business until God implodes it for me." On Monday May 11th, God did, in fact, implode Henle House. I won't share the details of how right now, but I can tell you that I do plan to write about this whole experience when it is over. It has been one of enormous proportions, it has turned our lives upside down all at once. The business was put on hold for a while. I decided it was time to keep it closed, and notified everyone. We have been talking for a while about closing it down and moving on. It was hard for me to let go of power and allow someone else to close it for me. Ok though, because I'm letting God take the reigns of my life.
How am I doing? Well, the immediate feeling was heartache. I have loved the busy that happened here every day. I didn't ever think I would have to learn how to have nothing to do. Each day gets a little better. Today- I removed all of the child safety locks. That was liberating!! I went a step further and removed the chicken wire from my walkway. All of these things that we had to change about our home are now being obliterated. I even made it out to the garden. Music is loud, to kill the noisy silence. When the music is playing, I can get up and move around.
God is bringing me joy, even in the midst of a fire storm that is blowing on us from all directions. We remain strong in the Lord- nothing can touch us. My trust is in God only, and He is showing me the hearts of those around us. (Including my own.) So, I hate to say "be careful what you wish for", but boy did God hear me when I said I would do this until He implodes it. Meanwhile, I have enjoyed blogging and plan to continue when I feel up to it. My thought process is being molded right now, and I am so thankful that God is working on me. I will be sharing just how not only will our family make it through this storm, but YOURS can make it through anything, too. No matter what.
