Life feels more real this week in Ohio. The pace at work has increased and Kris is busy trying to get all of the paperwork for the garage done so we will be ready to build very soon. Our kids seem to be realizing that this isn't a long vacation and are finding some fun spots to call their favorites. On Sunday we attended the funeral of Kris's Uncle Jeff. It was an unexpected event and a sad time. During the funeral I was impressed with a familiar passage often read at such times...."There is a time to be born and a time to die....a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them" (Ecclesiastes 3:1,5) I feel as though this week we have begun to gather rather then to scatter. We have appreciated the prayers you have said for our family at this time of transition. We are so thankful for a God who made the move with us and remains at work in our lives.
