June 16 will mark one year ago that we drove out of our farm in Oregon. It was so exciting but also bittersweet. I love a new adventure but I also like same ole boring. I am truly grateful for all God has done with this move. My husband has a wonderful job, my son's have both found work with company's that offer a lifelong career. My family is here. We have found a nice little church......
So why do I miss home so much? It was very hard to leave Oregon, but I was under the impression that since it was a God thing, I would love Minnesota.
But still yet, I know God does not promise us happiness, but he does take care of us, and that he has done. This verse keeps popping into my mind:
I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:12-13
I think I am supposed to be learning this, to be content and rely on God's strength. I am so grateful that we had those years in Oregon, met the people we did and had the experiences we had. On to the next adventure! (whatever it is)
