Every frustration and difficulty
has the opportunity
to form you
in the deepest places
of your heart.

A good reminder for me as I move into my new home this weekend.  It’s been hitch-free so far (knock on wood), but stress has really done a number on me for the last month.  In the space of a month, I bought a house and moved into it.  I arranged for new floors to be put in and a new paint job.  Coordinating all of this was a major effort on my part!  I’m not great at multi-tasking or making a series of rapid decisions — things I’ve been having to do for the past month.  Then comes the additional stress of unpacking!  I don’t know which is worse — packing or unpacking! And then there’s just the stress of living in boxes during that time.
