Looking Forward

“There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.”
-C.S. Lewis
pics 1054 Reflecting on 20 years of living in this house…
     that became a home,
              to a family of 4,
                 the traditional American dream,
                      of a boy and a girl.
a place that grew with us,
         through the addition of 6 more,
                 no longer that traditional American dream,
                       but God’s desire for this family,
                            and a fulfillment of a deeper hearts desire -
                                   more than we even knew possible.
I reflect on the memories…
    the joys and the sorrows 
         the gains and the losses
               the victories and the battles
                       the triumphs and the trials
                               the blessings and the hardships
the joys always outweighing the sorrows,
   the gains out numbering the losses,
       the victories winning far more battles,
          the triumphs overcoming the trials,
                the blessings overshadowing the hardships,
                                     Memories full…  Growth immeasurable.

There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.
I look forward to all He has for us in this new place…DSC00280
This new season, as we enter our "Promise Land."

Keeping my eyes focused on the one who is our prize.

Let your eyes look directly ahead And let your gaze be fixed straight in front of you.  Proverbs 4:25
