  • Exciting Day

    After 4 years of study, my husband Kevin will find out tonight where he is assigned to serve as a Vicar during the upcoming school year. The excitement and anticipation of the announcement is very real for me this morning. I am also filled with awe that 4 years have passed so quickly. It seems like just yesterday we were packing our possessions in a U-Haul van and moving cross country (Texas to Minnesota) to start our journey. Now here we are ready to find out about vicar assignment! Wow!

    We are different people that we were when we left Texas 4 years ago. Kevin certainly has a lot more knowledge floating through that brain of his. But, all the “book-learning” aside, Kevin and I and our children and I would venture to say our parents, family and friends have all grown in faith, trust and awe of the triune God. The comfort of salvation through Jesus is real. The comfort of the daily presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives is real. The comfort of the love, concern and attention to detail of the heavenly Father is real.

    Yes, I’m excited about tonight. I’m ready to get on with preparing for the changes ahead – new schools for the kids, new home for us, another U-Haul van . . .

    But I am so at peace about the assignment. I am confident that God, who has blessed us immeasurably thus far on this journey, is preparing a place for Kevin to serve that will give him (and the rest of us) the exact experience he desires for us.

    To God be the glory!
