So why the mixed emotions?

Although our time in the mountains was a blast, I knew the trip home on Wednesday morning would usher in a moment I had been dreading for weeks… telling Brandon and Megan goodbye as they leave for Ohio.

It wasn’t until we returned to their empty house on the following day that reality truly set in.


While there, my mind flashed back to the day they moved in last Fall. I was alone in the empty house waiting for the moving truck to arrive. I walked through the rooms praying for them and praising God for such a unique and unexpected blessing in having them live in the house where Brandon and Zach had been raised. How cool was that?

Today, the praise continues, but in a different sense. Where I had previously praised Him for bringing them, I now find myself praising Him for moving them. But more so, I praise God for moving in them.

I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.” Ephesians 1:17-19
