If you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, "Move from here to there," and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. ~Matthew 17:20

Saying Goodbye to Golden Pond

Ten years ago, we were blessed to build our dream home on top of a mountain and live the "country" life for a while.  Honestly, Brad and I find it hard to believe that 10 years has passed so quickly and the next adventure in our lives is beginning.

Living in Ferndale was literally a dream come true and we will always remember the amazing sunsets, the wonderful (but few) neighbors, the varmints menagerie of God's creatures in all shapes and sizes, snow sledding days, shooting stars, the hilarious story of how the hill in front of the pond became known as "Carney Hill" (ask Craig about that one!), the boys camping out in the woods on New Year's Day and coming home frozen, the Super Bowl, World Series and March Madness parties too numerous to count, and every holiday with our family's laughter filling the rooms.  

We bought our property five years before we built our house and by the time we finally moved in, we were all giddy with anticipation of living in the woods.  When I sent out our change of address cards, I thought this picture expressed how we ALL felt!

Ten years later, they didn't seem quite as excited about the move.

But we know that God's adventure for our family is better than anything we could ever imagine, and so we have made the move to the big town of Little Rock.  Not only are we back in the neighborhood we lived in before we moved to Ferndale, we are actually on the same street as well!  We still have a lot of boxes to unpack and I did find out the hard way that I can't run to my car with a towel wrapped around me without running into neighbors (YIKES!), but other than that, it's all good.  
I do have the PERFECT place for my morning devotional!

Our plan is to stay in Little Rock for at least another year while Spencer completes his first year of college and Brad finishes up his current projects.  We have no idea what God's plan is but we will try to keep up and pay attention.  It's all about faith.

"Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep His promise."
~Hebrews 10:23
