It’s reality now…

It's a mess!

It's a mess! Thanks Apex!

I had an informal interview last night at Clarksville Family Chiropractic. They do things a little different there, but I think I will fit. She sounded promising just the hour we sat and chatted. I go back Tuesday for a test of just daily tasks: multiplying, adding, subtracting, dividing, typing, filing in alphabetical order and such of the like. Hopefully being put on the spot like that won’t freak me out too bad and mess my chances up. So Tuesday we shall see. We went to the bank today so we are officially up here now that we have bank accounts! They do things differently there too than what we are used to but I think we will like it better once we adjust to it. Kevin’s been checking out some good places to eat. Don’t go through the drive through at Wendy’s at the church, they take forever and a day. The Golden Rule Smokehouse is absolutely wonderful. We have Old Chicago which we haven’t checked it out yet, but are going to and will be taking Jodi and Jonathan and Jake and Tara there when they come up. We will soon be going down to the river walk to see what all is down there. Probably take our Christmas Card Pictures there. In the summer they have movies in the park and this winter they have Christmas lights and stuff. Can’t wait for that. Come spring I will be at Dunbar Cave a LOT. Can’t wait for that too. It’s definitely colder up here. Feels like snow and ice today. Yuck! Isabella is finally adjusting I think and Maverick is doing okay. He doesn’t like the walnuts outside hitting the roof of the tin shed or his dog house and it wakes us up in the middle of the night hitting the roof thinking it’s gun shots. Little freaky! The house is still a wreck but we are getting there. Slowly! Kevin is connecting with the band pretty good I think. Him and the drummer seemed to have hit it off very well. Everyone is beginning to feel like family and so far we are loving it. The chiropractor I talked with yesterday said we would love the area on the other side of the river around Palmyer because it’s rolling hills and would feel like home. We might take a ride over there soon and if we like it who knows, might just buy a house over there next year. There’s a lot to do here, a lot to see, and a lot of people to meet. Can’t wait till all of our friends come to visit. I’m beginning to miss some of you. We are so used to friends just calling on weekends to go do something! No phone calls yet. But we will.

    It sounds like you are adjusting well. I sense excitement and peace in your hearts. I really miss you guys too (although you are only looking forward to taking Jake and Tara and Jonathan and Jodi out to eat). I shed a tear and got over it. I have had the blessing and opportunity to witness a slow crawling catepillar make his way into a coccoon. While he has there, I saw him struggle to get free from what was imprisoning him, although he was being made strong and ready to fly. I think the worm probably thought he was left in the cage a little longer than he hoped. And there were times that he felt he was still in there, even when he was released. But one day as he broke through the walls that held him, he found a beautiful butterfly, who too had previously escaped the necessary struggle. From that moment, I was blessed to not only see one pair of wings grow stronger and more beautiful, but now two. “I don’t have to fly alone!” they both agree. I was blessed to be chosen as the captain to join these two wing mates. You have flown high. You have hit the ground hard. But, you never stopped flapping your wings. There has always been something higher in the sky that you could not reach, so you continued to fly harder. Your dreams, your hopes, your desires-all things! You flew high, long, and hard. Now, you are not flying for something, but Someone. The Someone behind all the dreams, hopes, and desires, is now standing in front of it all. You have chosen to fly in a direction that you would not yet understand. But your strength, faith, and wisdom tells you all you need to know is where your Creator tells you to go. The very One that created you crawling, placed you in the coccoon, and allowed you to struggle till you were strong enough to break free-this is the One to whom you have chosen to follow-our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. You have made me proud-not that your were doing it for me. You go! You continue to fly! I love you! Philip

    It sounds so exciting and we are all praying that God guide and direct your every step. I know there are blessings awaiting and probably some trials as well as you become established up there. But know you are being prayed for and being lifted up in Jesus’ name for His mighty works to be revealed through you both! You are there for His purpose and His plan and He will not leave you stranded at a time when you have both been so obedient to Him. It excites me to think of the doors and opportunities that will be opened to you! Love you both!

    soooooo, you’re saying that you’ll be paying for dinner? I’ll drive anywhere for free food. We miss you guys too.

    It sounds like you guys are fitting in well! Good luck with the job test. I know you will rock it out! In the meantime, enjoy being a stay-at-home wife. Your ministry is not only to your new Church Family, but to your husband and new chapter in your marriage. We miss you guys and can’t wait to see ya!
