Uprooted

We went for a walk through Cedarville State Forest on Saturday. It was amazing. There were trees and grass. There was a small pond. There were animals living in their natural habitat. It was gorgeous and green everywhere.

As we came around a corner in the trail, there was a huge tree over turned. I couldn’t help but think I’m a little like that tree right now. We’ve been uprooted from our familiar Vegas life and dropped into a new one here in Maryland.

The more I thought about it, the more I realized that being uprooted is a good thing. It provides room for new things to grow. We are in a new neighborhood with friendly neighbors. We are nearer to family. We are in a new part of the country with new adventures to be had. There will be challenges and there will be really hard days, but there will be growth.

And just like Caleb going down each hill, we’ll find a place to hold on (how funny is that picture?!).

I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid. John 14:27

Peace. Ummm, yes, thank you!

Keith likes to say that every part of our lives are under construction: our neighborhood, our house, the clinic on base, the list goes on. We both decided that our lives should always feel uprooted to a certain extent; we know we’ll always have room to grow.

    Becky, you never fail to inspire me! Sometimes I feel like your words are being written for me! When are you going to put your blog into a book? Miss you lots!

      Haha, that’s a good question. Know any publishers?!
