I miss you...

Oh how I miss blogging. Oh how I miss you. Truly!

I have been loving the personal emails though, keep'm coming. :)

I have been posting onto Instagram at least once a day. So if you're curious at how things are going with the packing, the selling, and the move, and the quest for sanity to remain in this all, go to the right of your screen and click the Instagram link to follow me.

I am @irisparr.

I'd love to see you there.

M.I.A. for a while

Sometimes it takes years of praying and planning.
Sometimes doors open and then close again.
Sometimes you lose patience in the wait and other times you know that His timing is filled with perfection, so you continue to wait and you just don't give up.
You just can't, because it's a huge, ginormous, God-sized dream that just won't go away.

And then all of a sudden things start into motion and they snowball and you know that the first steps of that huge, ginormous God-sized dream is starting to happen.

And it is.

Jason got a job in his home province and we are moving to be closer to family. My sister and brother-in-law, Jason's sister and family, and Jason's parents. And we are over the moon.

This is just the first step to an even bigger dream we have and it will take time to unfold, but God is opening doors with this very first step and we are so excited.

So, that's why I have been M.I.A. here at the blog. We have two houses to sell, one vehicle, we need to…

When God gives you a hug in His God way

I've been having abdominal pain and nausea for a while now. Probably almost two years, but it was this past September that I finally went to the doctor and asked for help. It's been a long, slow process where I have felt unheard. I've been treated for Gastritis (inflammation of the stomach lining due to acid reflux-reflux which I don't have) and this hasn't sat right with me because there is a lump that gets bigger when I eat.

Finally, two months ago I was told I would have an endoscopy to see what is going on in my stomach. The medications I have been given have not helped at all and I was desperate for some answers. I was super nervous about the procedure. The idea of having a tube put down my throat to take a look in my stomach and then have a biopsy taken internally? Eww. Thankfully a couple of very caring people in the medical field explained the procedure and my sedation the day before the procedure. I slept fine that night. A miracle.

When I got to the hospi…
