Make Space

"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us." 
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Moving is about making space. When we arrived in Texas, we had to make space for a lot of things. We made space for my husband's new job. We made space for a new baby. We made space for new friends and a new social circle.

I quickly learned that making space allowed our roots to grow deep.

This week, we made space in our home for a photo shoot. We moved furniture around and we cleared the clutter. We donated the bounty and made space by selling a few things. Making space, allows the other to see what's possible.

Transition is about making space. As we go into a new community, we will make space for our roots to grow deep. We will also make space to see what's possible.

We go as willing participants of the good that is happening. We go as servants of a God who lovingly sends us and goes before us.

I am thankful to God for the amazing community we are joining and the love we are encountering already. No doubt, the community is making space for us.

We've seen them make space in their hearts and homes. I'm humbled they made space in their lives so that mine can be a bit easier. God is so gracious, He gave us our new community of faith.

Have you ever thought about your transitions in life as a time to make space? You may find that your roots will grow deeper and your love, stronger.
