Isaiah 43:19

This trip was gonna be different.  In a few ways. 

In bittersweet ways.

 We drove in just in time for Neal's 40th B-Day Bash.


The Lord.

When He provides and encourages and blesses through relationships...it's really incredible.

He is incredible.

It's amazing how much we take for granted.  So much beauty in our own backyards.

Beauty all around us.


This sweet friendship.  Ever so precious.

And these girls.

Listing the house was more difficult than we imagined.

After a good old cry...Zion and I stuffed our faces with  10,000 calorie Chick-fil-a lunches.

These darling "farewells."

You've been good to us, Arizona.  We love you. 

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.  

Isaiah 43:19

The week we arrived in LA...almost four years ago...I joined a Women's Bible Study.  This group of gals has been a soft place for me.  A source of strength.  A place of comfort.  A place of discomfort.  A place of authenticity.  A place of vulnerability.  A place of stretching.  A place of worship. A place of tears.  A place of prayer.  A place of understanding.  A place of truth.  A place of laughter.  A place of friendship.  A place of transparency.  A place of humility.  A place of growth.  A place of rest. 

I know that I know that I know that the Lord loves me.

And the fact that He has given me sisters in Christ in this place is one of the evidences of his love.

 For such a time as this, Girls.
