Starting Over

There's nothing quite like a fresh start. I have been given the amazing gifts of a new city, state, home, job, car, church, and neighborhood. At first, I tried really hard to hang on to the old while trying to embrace the new - let's just say that it didn't work! Ever tried to drive two cars at once? Of course not!! It is hard to be in two places at once and it is really hard to move forward when your focus is on what is behind you. After wrestling with reality for the past few weeks, I decided that it is time to look forward and time to get excited about what lies ahead instead of dwelling on what has been left behind.

Some things have changed dramatically and others have only changed slightly just because of geography. Thankfully, family and friends fall into the latter category, so in order to help bridge the gap that the miles put between us, I plan on using this blog to share the new things that God is doing in my life and to celebrate the amazing future He has planned for all of us!

So, as Walt Disney said, let's keep moving forward!!

You go girl! I go through that same exact thing every few years moving with the military... hence the reason in one of my girls rooms, I painted the saying "Bloom where you are planted" ... more of a reminder to me! Good luck!

That's great! I know exactly what you mean having also just made a move and can't wait to hear about all the amazing things God has in store for you there. Looking backward can can tend to bring regret and frustration...looking forward gives hope, unlimited possibilities and excitement over what will be...you deserve hope!
