And Finally...A GoodBye.

The part that I dreaded. The part where I have to say good bye to my little house.

I know...I know...It's just a house. Behold All things will perish.

BUT, this little house has been an amazing shelter and refuge for my family. God blessed us with all that we needed, and graciously provided for us even when we complained.

Last night, I laid in bed talking to the little lady house. I thanked her for withstanding the storms that blew her way. I thought back on all that her cracked walls saw in the almost 9 years that we lived here. And told her that I hoped she would have great owners that loved her as much as we did.

In our 9 years here, little lady house watched as we poured tears over the people of our church. Sobbed as we had to discipline some from our congregation. She was warm as I sat in my pink chair...awaiting the birth of Abbie and Isaac and then she watched us bring home 2 of our precious children. She held steady as puppies and little feet ran through the rooms...gleefully yelling and shouting. She creaked and moaned a little when we wept over 11 sweet ones that past on to Heaven, never for us to see their faces. Little Lady House was best friends with the Red Tree who made my heart sore with pleasure of God's splendid handiwork. And she endured all the renovations that we lovingly poured into her as well.

Thank you Lord for giving us such wonderful memories of a Little Lady House. She will forever be our home. And I am so happy that my kids will remember their wonderful times in her.

And We Move On...

On March 21st, we accepted the position of Associate Pastor to Youth and Families at a great little church in Southern Indiana. After several years in limbo, and following a very hard ministry in Attica, we are excited to see what God has for us here. Nervous, yes. Excited, OF COURSE. Sad, deeply.

I will miss Attica. I will miss my awesome Faith. I will miss my friends. (Ok, so we are only moving 2 hrs away...but still!)

I want to write more on this later. I don't have much time to pour out my emotions right now. BECAUSE----> We are packing. See post above for more details on that!

Ok, it is absolutely no secret that we love Disney World and the beach. It is really one of our favorite places in the whole entire world. So, when we got the opportunity to take our business on the road, we made sure to swing into Disney again. It was a crazy week and a half, a bit tiring, but totally worth it.

Please forgive the mess of pictures. I might come back later to comment, but for now, I just wanted to get them up for grandparents to see. :)

We had a whirlwind of classes scheduled for March. 4 completely different ones. Different meaning, different topics...different locations...different stores! The class above was done in Monticello, In. We also had 2 classes Mobile, AL and one at the Louisville Seminary. So much fun!

A whole month and no posts. That might just be a record for me.

What a busy, beautiful, wonderful month was March.

So much happened, that I can't fit it all into one post. And, some big things happened that should not be crammed into a small space as well.

In attempt to pour it out, there might be miss-spellings...missing commas...and run on sentences. Who really cares though? 5 years from now, the fact that a whole month of my life is missing on my blog will stand out more than the mistakes.

Seriously, this is heaven in a fried cheesy form. Who would have guessed that FRIED MACARONI AND CHEESE would be so awesome? Yet, it is. In fact, so it was so wonderful that the next time we venture to "Glory Days", I am going to try their highly recommended fried pickles! I have been converted to the beautiful world of fried foods. How is that going to help me loose weight?
