365 days: A new chapter.

In New York Summer on August 6, 2015 at 3:20 pm

Sometimes seasons change, and sometimes seasons really change. We are in one of those really changing ones, and to mark the ending of our first 365 days here, we found out we have to move. I know, I know, moving can kind of be a crying matter, and though I really don’t like packing, for some reason this time, it feels exhilarating. Maybe because it’s been one of the craziest years of our lives. Maybe it’s because it feels we are on the tipping point, and this just might send us over the edge—in a good way. Sometimes it seems we help in the changing of a season, and other times, He just turns the page. It seems that latter is true right now, He’s turning our page, or should I say, beginning a new chapter.

I’m flooded with so many emotions in the completion of this year, but the overall feeling is awe. We’ve made it. We did it. He did it. We are here. This year has been many things for us: crazy, grueling, terrifying, adventurous, daring, risky, fun, and a ton of hard work. To say, “We’ve made it!” is no small thing. There have been many moments I wondered if we would. To be here, a year later, looking back, I am in awe.

Just what does He have for us ahead? Something new, that’s for sure. Though new in relation to moving means lots of work, it is none-the-less new, and that is exciting. I feel like He’s lifting our sky, that the possibilities are endless. Closing this chapter brings a sense of relief and thankfulness. I can’t wait to see what He has up His sleeve. It’s going to be great. I just know it. People say New York will chew you up and spit you out. Well, it has chewed us up, but it likes our flavor. We’re not going anywhere. We like it, too. Actually, we love it, and that says a lot. When it hasn’t been easy and you can’t picture anywhere else you’d rather be, you know you’re in the right spot. See, the grass is greenest where He’s led us. It always is if we’re willing to look.

Love you,
