I just sent an email to friends and family, and I find myself a bit overwhelmed as I contempate the next three months of my life. Here it is:

1. We are still moving to {our new base}, but the battalion Isaac is assigned to has changed. He is now assigned to {a different battalion}, which means he will be deploying {in a few months}. We don't know the exact date or where he'll deploy, but it will be for about 6 months.

2. This means that we are checking out of here and moving on May 18, and then driving to {our new base}.

3. The Navy is also paying for Isaac to get his eyes fixed. He will have laser eye surgery on April 3, with follow-up appointments on April 4th and 6th. The whole family will be staying {near the hospital} during that time, and I don't know if we'll have email access.

4. We fly to {our new base} on April 8th for a househunting trip. We are planning on buying a house, and have until April 11th to find one.

So that means that in the next three months, my husband is having surgery, we'll look for and buy our new house, we'll make a major move almost half-way across the country, have almost enough time to unpack, and then my husband will deploy, leaving me in a new city with a 4.5-year-old, 2.5-year-old and 6 or 7-month-old.

God doesn't give us more than we can handle, right?

So I know I can do this.

But prayer is much appreciated.

You do have a lot to handle in the next few months. I find myself overwhelmed when I look that far ahead, so I try to just deal with each day as it comes. God is always faithful.

I'll pray for you, Christy. That sure sounds like a lot to handle all at one time!

Christy, I stumbled on your blog. I'll be praying for you dear girl. Breathe deeply and stay close to Jesus. Blessings on your journey.

Oh Christy-That is A LOT! Hopefully there will be some support for you and your family at the new base. Have you looked into a church yet. There is so much that you can research ahead of time via the Internet now.

Blessings to you and your family-

Wow, that's definately a load to bear! We will have to pray that everything goes well and works out for your family!
