The Home Stretch
Steve's move to Gloucester -- the first phase of our relocation -- was accomplished within twelve days of receiving his job offer, a true miracle in itself. God couldn't have orchestrated a smoother transition for Steve. We decided that Joy and I would stay in Collierville through the end of the school year to allow her to finish middle school with her friends and give us time to sell our home.
Less than two weeks after Steve's move his dad was hospitalized for a health issue we thought could be resolved with physical therapy, as it was last year. We could not
After the funeral Steve returned to Virginia and ramped up his search for a rental home. Joy and I were able to visit him during Spring Break. During that week we looked at houses and explored the area we will soon call home. Although the house we wanted was rented before we had a chance to make an offer, Steve was able to find an even bigger one-story house just minutes from the beach! He moves in this Saturday. He will fly home in late May to help us finish packing, attend Joy's middle school graduation, and move us to "the land of the life worth living," where we can finally be together as a family after four and a half long months apart!
For now -- least until the move is complete -- I bid my handful of blog readers a fond farewell. Although this signals the end of a season of ministry, it is just the beginning of an exciting new chapter of our lives which God has already written and will reveal to us in the months and years to come!
