One year ago.

April 8, 2008

One year ago, Katie and I said goodbye to our church family in Macomb, and made the journey to a new family in Mattoon.

Our last day at the Macomb church was Easter.
After the service our strongest supporter/parent/youth leader for the past seven years came up and asked me
“So, are you ready?”
my eyes filled with tears,
I answered, “No”.

My eyes weren’t filled with tears because I was making the wrong decision.
It was because, I knew that my life would be changed forever.
I was excited, fearful, sad, and totally pumped all at one time.

I said goodbye to a location, not to friends.
We left an impression on them and they left an impression on us for a lifetime.


We moved to a place where we had only a handful of friends.
But over the past year, we have made a ton of additional ones.

  2. Thanks for commenting on my post.

    It is so funny the way God works in our lives isn’t it?
    I have been having some problems about a great church friend of mine moving away, and this post of yours has shed new light on the whole situation.

    Thank you again.
