The past week has been exhausting to say the least. We’ve been packing, moving, driving, and unpacking for days. It’s finally over, and I’m settled in, nestled under a blanket in our new home. It feels wonderful to finally be home after this chaotic year that we’ve had.
So much has changed. In fact, our lives are barely recognizable right now, and yet I can’t help but feel that we’re exactly where God wants us to be.
As I got to thinking about the changes we’ve seen and the trials we’ve had, I was reminded of an old song by Amy Grant,
In a little while,
We’ll be with the Father;
Can’t you see him smile?
In a little while,
We’ll be home forever,
In a while
We’re just here to learn to love him
We’ll be home in just a little while.
With that I’m reminded that we’re just passing through. That years like this are merely a test of our faith. And that loss is nothing compared to the reward that comes with knowing Christ and trusting Him to lead the way.
In times like this we have to open our Bibles. We need more than just a sermon or a song–we need fellowship with Christ, and a hope that only He can bring.
A hope that reminds us that we’re coming home. A hope that tells us that we’ll be there in just a little while.

In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. (John 14:2-3, KJV)
Darlene Schacht and her husband Michael live in Manitoba Canada where the summers are beautiful and the winters are cold. Together they’ve come to learn that relationships aren’t always easy, but that marriage, the way God intended it to be, is a treasure worth fighting for.
She began her publishing journey about twelve years ago when she pioneered one of the first online magazines for Christian women, known at the time as “Christian Women Online Magazine.” After three years, Darlene left CWO to blog as a solo author at Time-Warp Wife Ministries.
It was also during this transition that she worked alongside actress Candace Cameron Bure to write the NYT Best-Selling book, Reshaping it All: Motivation for Spiritual and Physical Fitness. Reshaping it All was the winner of both the 2011 USA Best Book Awards and the 2012 Christian Reading Retailers Choice Awards.
