When Chaos Abounds.

9183748434_6e7b63e3df_zPiles of stuff fill our house. Piles for a possible moving sale if I really get my action together, piles for Goodwill, piles to pack and piles for this person and that person that I’ve been meaning to give them like 7 months ago. There are boxes stacking higher as the days go by and our walls are bare. And if you’ve been to our house you know the drastic difference this is because I feel the need to fill my walls with LOTS of goodness. Excessive, much? Whatevs, it’s my thing.

Plain and simple: It’s getting crazy up in here.

The usual somewhat summer schedule is not in tact and honestly never really got started. Meals have been less than acceptable, swimming has substituted for baths far too often and the TV has been on way more than I’d like. I’m pretty sure their brains are mush. There have been no cool, fun summer crafts or outdoor, super awesome activities. My kids have seen me on my phone pretty much 24/7 talking with realtors, general contractors, roofers, insurance agents and moving companies. I have no idea what I am talking about but whatever it is, I am talking to these people ALL THE TIME!

Are we going to make it? Well yes, yes we are. Will we be ok. The kids will be ok. I have to keep reminding myself this when I look around and see our house in disarray and my kids eating another meal in front of the TV on paper plates.

When chaos abounds around me I am reminded of my new fave song from Hillsong, Oceans. I was introduced to it by a new friend, Naptime Diaries who has just survived a similar moving situation. So yes, there is hope!

Love these words…singing them loudly as I pack away…

You call me out upon the waters the great unknown where feet may fail. And there I find you in the mystery, in oceans deep my faith will stand. And I will call upon your Name, and keep my eyes above the waves. I am yours and you are mine.


Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander and my faith would be made stronger in the presence of my Savior. Spirit lead me when my trust is without borders. Let me walk upon the waters wherever you would call me.

I'm a wife to 1 amazing husband. A mom to 1 little dude and 2 girlie girls. A follower of the ONE who saved me. A daughter to 2 wonderful people. A sister to 1. A friend to many. A runner because that's what I do to keep from not going crazy. And the CEO of this little part of the world we call home.


  1. Oh, yes. The from the day we signed on our new house until the day we moved in, my kids watched more TV than ev-er. Oh, and I let them color the boxes with crayons. That helped. If you are on the phone with Ms. Fancher, tell her I said hello! 😉

  2. Good to know I am not alone and in good company. And yes, I’ll tell Ms. Fancher you said hello. I’ve been dealing with Rodney the roofer and he’s not on my good list right now:)

  3. Oh, my, Aubrey! I missed your “and here we go” post somehow and am just now catching up on your wild ride. Know I’m praying for you in this transition. You’ve done this moving business enough to know everybody’s gonna be OK, but here’s another reminder: Everybody’s gonna be OK. I loved your “feelings map” and it shows how connected you are to your kids and your God through this time. Best to you as you embrace the adventure that awaits! –D
