Reality is Setting In........

Well, the reality of leaving my friends and family here is hitting me.  I know this move is a God thing, and I know that in the long run this is going to be great for our family, but I'm sad :(.  I have been blessed with an amazing family here at camp and I am very close to my mom and dad (and the rest of my family)... so this move is going to definitely get me out of my comfort zone.  I feel like I'm starting all over; which, I know isn't necessarily bad, but it's just going to be an adjustment.  I was just talking to one of my friends here, and she reminded me that she would be of any help that she could be to me in this process, and it made me so happy to know that no matter what, I have friends/family here.  I'm so thankful that (most) people here are understanding and that we're not burning bridges.  We really aren't just trying to get away from here... we are truly going because God has made it clear that He wants us to.

So, as I pack up, I see the end of one season and the beginning of a new, fresh season... We have lots of history here at camp.  We met here, we got married here, had all three of our kids while living here (and 2 were actually born here), and we have family here at camp.  But, we know that the memories will always be in our hearts, and our family will always be here... and that's all that really matters.

Courtney, I just read this post and yesterday's post - I can't believe you're moving, and so fast! Wow, huge changes in your life - you have a lot on your plate! I wonder if you would want to try and meet before you go?!? :) Or if that would be too stressful for you? Maybe we could meet at the farmers' market or next time you come in town. Just let me know if you're interested but if not, it's ok, I definitely understand! I will pray for you and your family during this time of transition. I'm glad you have such a strong sense of God's leading - that will really help when times get crazy. :)
