Four Years and Counting

Exactly 4 years ago today, my family and I drove into STL after having packed up all our worldly possessions and hauled them here from Dallas. My oh my how things have changed in 4 years. So much has happened. We moved here for my husband's job, which changed last fall. We came here with no place to live, but through the generosity of a very sweet lady, we had a temporary home in the city until we found our house in Webster Groves. Our son graduated high school, went to college for a year, then launched out full time pursuing a career in music back in TX. Our oldest daughter played all 4 years on her high school volleyball team, graduated and is heading back to TX for college in 3 weeks. Our youngest daughter joined Girl Scouts, began playing organized basketball and will start middle school in 2 weeks. We have said goodbye to our then 11 year old dog and hello to our now 3 year old dog. We all left behind many good friends in TX and have been blessed with many good friends here in STL. God has stretched and grown each of us in ways we could never have dreamed or imagined. He continues to do that. He has opened our hearts to so many new things. I'm thankful for the many changes and know His promises remain true. He is faithful.
