We Did Move

We spent last week moving to our new house. Well, the kids and I spent the week moving. Dave spent the week in sunny, beautiful Detroit--that dirty dog!

So.....if you have been waiting to hear back from me about anything, I will try to get unburied this week. We spent several days without any internet, and I am very behind!

Dave just realized that exactly 10 years ago, we had lost most everything. Most significantly, we had both lost all hope. It was a very dark time for us.

I appreciate that Dave is striving to live with thanksgiving and gratitude. He says he never, ever dreamed that our situation would be redeemed and greatly blessed over the course of ten years. He never dreamed we would have two more children. That we would have such a great family and such rich friendships. That we would be back in our beloved Longmont, and at Rocky Mountain Christian Church. That we would have traveled to many places in the world. That we would have such a beautiful home. And that God would have worked so much in our hearts and lives, to heal so much pain and to begin to free us from many of our fears. All praise to Him.

P.S. We leave for Ethiopia in three weeks!
