“The greatest adventure is what lies ahead.”

I mentioned it before, but we’re back.

Back in beautiful Idaho, a place that is truly home to us.

We missed it every day.  But though we missed home, we had a long winter adventure planned out, so many places we would see…

But interestingly, everything changed.  We began to feel so strongly that it was time to get back home.  We accelerated our list and cut it down to the few most important things, and then we hurried home.

Even though coming back meant camping in true winter and ice and snow (don’t worry, we’re toasty and fine!!), it felt so compellingly right that we couldn’t stay.

We had planned to build a home next summer, but even that changed.  We felt prompted to buy a home now, and we moved forward.  That is a long and special story of its own, but long story short, we are zooming right along in the process of buying a sweet little home in the woods.

Everything feels so very right, and my heart is at peace.  This year has been one of tremendous growth for me, and I am just beginning to see the incredible path that has been laid out in front of me.

So, as my heart turns to the new year and all of the joys it holds for our family, I bid farewell to a year of staggering climbs, and keep in my heart the lessons learned and the change that has come.  I am entirely new.

Just a little look back at our family’s coastal adventure:

And now, forward on our wonderful path we go.

    Even when plans change, which is often hard to accept, isn’t it exciting to see that our Father has his hand in YOUR life?? To feel so strongly about what you should do is evidence of His great plan just especially for you! Nothing could be more wonderful.
