Slacker Blogger

Sorry to those five of you that actually read this crazy stuff I write about our lives. Sorry, my posts have been so few and far between these past few days. It has been an odd week. A good week, but an odd one nonetheless. I have had a great time visiting with family and some really amazing friends. We have been going back to our previous church each night for VBS and that has been a little uncomfortable. My sister is tired of walking with us anywhere at the church. We usually walk about 5 feet and then someone stops and asks us the same four questions....


Question: Did you guys move back? 
My answer: No, just visiting for vacation.
Question: How is life in North Carolina?
My answer: Awesome! We love it!  
Question: I heard you moved to help start a church.... How are things going?
My answer: Really good... Church planting has been harder than we expected, but more rewarding than we could have ever guessed it would be.
Question: Do you miss it here?
My answer: It depends on what the "it" is you're asking about....

It's been those same 4 questions, no less than 30 times in 4 days... It's really hard to explain to people just how different Ridge is. How much our lives have changed..... How grateful we are for where the Lord has placed us. I have loved sharing about Ridge and I can feel myself getting so excited just talking about what we've done as a church in just the last 12 months! I will miss some dear friends and I know I will have to get much better at keeping in touch, but I love my life and can't wait to get back into the swing of it again!
