One Year of Georgia

Tuesday, March 21, 2023

Moving to Georgia was a big blessing from God. We find it to be a place of peace, generosity, and quiet contentment. 

I remember being bothered that my perfect routine was interrupted. Moving is counter-routine. I didn't realize how much in love with my routine I was until I had to change it. 

One year later, I think I changed my routine at least twice. The good thing is that you learn how to include your priorities in your day. 

You also learn that family comes first and everything else can and should wait. 

I'm enjoying the four seasons we enjoy here in this part of the world. The Fall was fantastic. For years I missed North Carolina Falls. The vibrant leave colors made me amazed at God's wisdom every day. The summer was Georgia hot. I made sure to stay cool and hydrated daily. The winter was quite cold. We enjoyed warm soups and a delightful time together as a family. Spring just started but the flower sightings have been sweet. 

There is so much more to explore. I'm happy to explore this area with my family.

The kids are growing so fast. The adults have grown too. We are growing in our faith and devotion to God. 

We moved here because my husband works at a place called New Hope. Hope is my favorite word and anchor. Here is a Bible verse with the word "hope":

“But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.”” Lamentations‬ ‭3:21-24‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Having hope in the midst of change is the best. Thank God we are where He wants us to be.
