One of these days our family will be moving to a new home in a city just southeast of our current location. We're familiar with our new area having attended church there several years ago, and we have friends we've known for many years who live there.
Change is in the air. Leaving our home of over 30 years will be somewhat of a shock when it all finally becomes a reality. There will be mixed emotions, some melancholy I suspect, but ultimately it will be a welcome change because we will be moving to the country since we are now surrounded by urban development in what used to be an unincorporated rural area.
I'm generally not fond of change. This is a necessity, and I do welcome it. From the emotional standpoint it will be hard to say goodbye. We have buried three horses, two dogs, and one cat here. Memories collected for this many years will not be abandoned even when this house is torn down to make way for an apartment complex. Relationships with our neighbors will be sustained from different locations, but our friends behind us have made an offer on a home about two miles away from ours!
Anyway, the blog may be irregular and undependable now and then leading up to, during, and after the move. We could use your prayers for a quick turnaround with technical "stuff" - and everything else that comes with a major relocation. Thank you for your faithfulness in sharing this blog with me. I hope to continue to offer cool things to look at, read, and ponder. I look forward to hearing your thoughts whenever you're moved to give them.
For the time being, we will proceed . . .
Father, thank you for all of this. It's not easy, but it's a gift from you, and we're so grateful for it. Words always fall short when it comes to you. Thank you is never enough, but I offer it from my heart. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
