Happy New Year
I hope that you all have had a very happy new year so far. I cannot imagine this next year bringing any more joy or pain than the last one did for us... I think that my best wish for our new year is that it be boring! That's not too much to ask is it?
As we are about to begin "making the rounds" so to speak, as we get together with family and friends, I thought that I would address the most frequently asked question that we have had: are we planning to move back to Florida? The short answer is... no. The long answer is... we don't know how God will lead us in the future, but He has clearly led us to Montana - where we will stay until we receive further direction. We have completely turned our life upside down over this past year, and our biggest desire right now as a family is to settle into one spot. We are so close to that goal right now. We wish that we could live closer to the many family and friends that we have here in Florida, but we will be back for visits... We have been taken in by a wonderful community (made up of both family and friends) in Montana, and are looking forward to settling in and having some semblance of a "normal" life (whatever that is), but it does not diminish the impact or importance of all those in Florida that we love. We do believe that God led us to Montana, and that it wasn't just for the season of Ellie's healing or death. He seems to have also led us there just for us, and we trust Him in that.
Thanks again for praying! We love you all.
