A Beautiful Surrender to Our For Now Home

Our Gypsy Caravan has arrived...

Those pictures above? That’s our Gypsy Caravan-tent trailer in our "For Now home", grounded in the Appalachian Mountains for the foreseeable future. If you missed that on my blog, THE HOUSE IN THE ROSES, you can find the details HERE.

It’s been pretty incredible, this transition. It’s come with a fair share of challenges, such as missing my girls—like I'm missing my air. But more and more my heart gets affirmed in the notion that this is what God wants us to be. And it feels so very right, too. Jogging through this lovely neighborhood yesterday morning and this morning; being showered as I was with a thousand leaves the colors of dusk and sunrise... the warmer climate, the amount of Nature in which my life is now surrounded with practically all year through.   This is truly amazing!  My eyes have cried in amazement, my heart is singing with a new song.  The fact that I can sit outside; run in the early morning; plant a flower pot, as I just did this morning—in November! This is truly amazing to me.  It is more than I can ask for...
I’ve learned something interesting from these changes in our lives though: We really have no idea what to expect anymore. I’ve completely let go of all expectation of what we’re doing, when we’re doing it, or how it’s going to work out, except one: I'm fully trusting our Heavenly Father to guide us where we get to go.
