So, we’re finally married! Had a wonderful wedding (bright sun but a bit windy), an amazing honeymoon on Prince Edward Island, and a long drive to Arkansas from Arizona. 🙂 But more on that later.
We finally got home on Wednesday evening. As we drove over the hills from Little Rock, I thought about how different Arkansas and Arizona are. I just came from the driest place ever, to a place where it is so muggy it looks like smoke is covering everything. I’ll admit, there was a little pit of fear in the bottom of my stomach. What on earth was I doing? I was leaving everything I had known…my family, my home, everything, to live in the hills of Arkansas.
And yet, I felt peace as well. I know without a doubt that God has called me here. I will be happy no where but where He has called me. And what an adventure He has brought me on. I think of the famous line from Peter Pan…”to live would be an awfully big adventure”. And is this not life? Growing up, getting married, starting a new family, and moving? Yes, I am a little scared…but an adventure wouldn’t be an adventure without fear. Without fear courage can not exist, and without fear, God cannot show His might and His power. I’m ready.
Anyway, I thought you might like to see some pictures of our new home. I warn you in advance, the house is a mess right now. Yesterday while Andy was at work I spent the whole day dragging boxes in the house, unpacking, buying groceries, putting them away, and a billion other things…and I am far from done. But, hey, this is real life right? And all part of the adventure. 🙂
Anyway, the pictures took forever to load, so I only have time for two right now!
The kitchen…please excuse all the stuff used from packing! lol! The rug is one I bought back in Flagstaff.
Anyway, that’s all for now. More later!
