hand in hand.



The house is close to quiet right now. Elijah is asleep and I'm praying that Vanessa is close behind him. I hear her talking to her doll in her crib, but it's slowing down and I'm sure she'll be out in no time. I love these rare moments to stop in the middle of everything and just soak up all that's going on around me. 


As I look around our house the bookshelves are empty, the pictures are off the wall and I'm surrounded in moving boxes. I can't believe how quickly it's all happening. My thoughts on leaving are all over the place. I'm excited to see all that God has for us in Idaho, but am scared of the unknown. I'm trying to avoid all thoughts of saying good-bye to family and friends. We have incredible people in our lives here and it is hard to think of leaving them. I am continually reminding myself to take all my cares to God and trust him. 


There is one thing I've loved through this whole process though, walking through it with Caleb. I love that the idea of moving somewhere started with us praying together. We've had endless conversations about going somewhere. We've talked going anywhere from Europe to Africa to any place in the States. I love that we're partners in this adventure. I love that we lean on one another through all the decisions. I love that we walk this road hand in hand. There is no one else I'd want to do it with. It's made us closer wrestling through the decision process together and coming out united and ready to go. I'm so thankful for the man God gave me.

wow, you are a great writer. i can relate to this post, as my husband and i are currently moving and the experience is amazing -- the way we depend upon each other, even just for jokes and laughs, and the way we support each other, and also all the new things we come across..together!

I came over from katy's blog (which I just recently started reading) b/c she had the sweetest post about your gals' friendship and my eyes lit up when I saw Idaho since I'm an Idahoan and a blogger :) What brings you and your family to Idaho? I promise it is better than people think, you will fall in love with it here!
