On the Horizon

Changes have come to our family in rapid succession over the past year.  Last September, my dear grandmother passed away.  We adopted our daughter in February.  We decided to move to Los Angeles (long story) in June.  We put our house on the market two weeks ago.  We will move in late December/early January.

In the midst of much change, God's presence feels simultaneously more and less evident.  We trust in His goodness, for He has brought us thus far; sadly, I also find myself struggling with the questions that are clearly first-world problems, for I know deep down the basic necessities will be provided.  Unfortunately, in the First World, we tend to want more than basic necessities.

I hope this blog serves as a place to write about our transition to LA and any future moves, should they come.  Over the past couple of years, I have begun to learn truly what Paul meant in 1 Corinthians 9:5 when he spoke about preachers of the gospel and their right to "lead about" a wife.

I feel a bit led about, and I'm okay with that.
