Five months ago our lives changed. It has been a wonderful change! It also has been a whirlwind. Jim made the move to Ohio a couple weeks before me starting in his new pastoral role while I worked out my notice. Leaving my job at AnMed Health Anderson Family Medicine was so much harder than I anticipated. Jim flew back as we made out first leg of the journey moving from SC just 2 days before Christmas. We lightly moved into a rental while we looked for a home and I spent the week after Christmas shopping and wrapping for our family of 23… celebrated with them over New Year’s Eve and Day then I started my new job. Then we went through the long, difficult process of selling my mama’s home in SC and looking for a house here. We made another move into our new home in April… then lots of work in the house and purchases… then another leg of the move yesterday emptying our storage units in Chicago. Now we wait on a kitchen remodel and still have a move of things from our daughters home in Sylvania… and then we will have everything back in one place to sort through and purge… and then making this our home with it’s foundation being Jesus and making memories with family and friends. It is a process … this journey called life is a process of becoming more like Him.
So, today we are on our way on vacation… a much needed time to rest and relax and just be together. Then we will return to our full life and our boxes and we will make our house our home.
