Starting Over

So we've been back to our old stomping grounds for almost 1 week already.  It has been busy.  Reconnecting with siblings and cousins and friends, trying to catch up.  Oh, and unpacking.

We really felt God calling us back and to be closer to family... that has been good.

Moving is never easy though.  We have been feeling very much like we are being tested and need to just stand strong.  It's weird to try to describe, a sort of oppression or test that comes your way in many little forms and little things. 

We are reminded of the importance of the family unit, strong within itself. Then the strength that comes from having others that care about you around you.

Life is good, God is good.  All these other things will in fact work out and hind sight will be 20/20.

Thankful for the warm welcome here, girls are settling in with some friends again, joining choir and youth groups.  Today I get to go for "coffee" with the coffee gals...
