One Year Ago
What were you doing 1 year ago? We were MOVING. It was I think a million degrees outside and we were moving from Coppell to Highland Village (13 miles). I know 13 miles doesn't seem like a long distance but it is. We moved to a new city! New house, new school, new church, new friends (we kept the old ones too but seem them less often). It was a big leap for us. We'd lived in the Coppell "area" since we'd been together.
This morning, I looked outside our bedroom window at the trees and had great joy in my heart. We love it in "Oklahoma" (as my parents call it). We are so much happier than we ever thought we would be. What if we hadn't taken that "leap of faith"? We would have missed out on all the things we have experienced this year. It isn't the material posession of the house, it is just the new territory God brought us to. We prayed that God would "Expand our Territory" before we moved and He certainly has. It is better than we could have ever imagined! Great new house, great new school, great new church, and great new friends!!!!!!
