new land

the move has been made. new land. new city. new people. new hospital. new apartment....and one very sad me.

jon left wv today to drive back home. and NC really has become home over the past 3 months. and what a BLESSING this summer together has been. it solidified our marriage, our commitment to eachother, and our ability to tolerate each other for more than 3 days at a time :). it was a breath of fresh air after so much time apart. we are praying that these next 2 years, with all their unknown events, go quickly. and we are praying even more that God will open doors to a residency where we can be together & carry out His plan for us.

it is all a bit intimidating....and a lot emotional, at least for me today. jon is so supportive--i don't deserve him most of the time...but that is for another post entirely :)

i'm excited to post pictures of this very weird-hick-town in the upcoming weeks/months. jon & i laughed yesterday when we walked into the grocery store and heard in the thickest WV accents "y'all come back now, y'hear??". weird billboards. weird store names. weird road-planning....but people are kind. life is slow-paced. and the hospital should be fun....

since parents will probably want to see, here are some pictures of the WV homestead until May 2009....

Ah the brown chair. I believe Beth and I made out a lot in that chair. Hopefully that image is now burned into your brain...he he he. Anyway, we are praying for your next year. You and Jon are always in our thoughts. Give the man an extra squeeze for me when you see him, I miss him terribly. Can't wait to see you guys again.
