I have to keep reminding myself of that. Seven years ago we moved, thinking it was the worst thing that could ever happen to me. I am so glad I was wrong. We joined a fabulous church, met so many new friends and I set up a new life here. A life I love. This is home. But, now it is time for change again. It is time to flip the page. It is a different sort of change than before, but still a change. I don't know what the future will bring, but I know it is for the best.
My oldest brother, Benjamin, is moving up to Virginia in three weeks. It is hard. I really don't know what to think. Half of me is excited for him, but the other half is sad. He and I have lived under the same roof for fifteen beautiful years (minus his four years at college). We have always been big buddies; just alike. But now it is time for a new change in life. I'm sure whatever it is will be for the best.
"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." -Jeremiah 29:11
I have hope for the future.
