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

The End of a Journey

Isn't it amazing how life can be so crazy and complicated, fun and stressful, energizing yet draining.  For the past five years, our crazy LA adventure has encompassed all of these adjectives and more.  It has taken me completely out of my comfort zone yet given me more comfort than anything I could have imagined.  I have been away from my family in Arkansas but God in turn blessed me with friends in LA that have become my family.

After five years of an amazing journey in California, the time has come for me to stay home in Arkansas.  In fact, I have already gotten a great job and life is back to the crazy busy life that I love.

Of course, there was lots of fun in Cali to be had before we departed...
Mermaids do exist!

Scary people at the pumpkin patch and petting zoo.

Our first 5K Zombie run.  Michelle and I ran our best time for 3.2 miles but I think that is to be expected when zombie's are chasing you!!

Cole and I left early on November 1st and headed home with an extra passenger; Mittens!  
Wow, does she love her bro bro, Cole.

Mitty came to us through friends who just weren't home very often so the Cali kitty is becoming accustomed to life in the South.
Kobe is tolerating her and Mitty is inching her way into making herself the Queen of the castle.

Life for Spencer at OBU has been absolutely amazing.  I love seeing God's hand over every aspect of his life; his health, his determination and his commitment to great grades AND having a social life.
This cracked me up...Spencer dressed in his "scream" costume and standing nonchalantly behind the door in his Comp I class the day before Halloween.  That boy has a wicked sense of humor.

Yesterday, we spent the day at OBU for the annual Battle of the Ravine game between OBU and Henderson State.  It was a great game and even though OBU lost, Spencer and his friends enjoyed every second.

There are some kinks to be worked out since Cole will be going back to LA in January without us, but thankfully we have a network of friends and five years of experience under our belts.  Now, if only we could figure out a way to move California closer to Arkansas so Cole won't be so far away.

"Work hard and cheerfully at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people."
