Coming to an end? Can it really be?

20 11 2008

Well, I am in shock that Seminary is coming to a close.  In just a few short weeks my husband will make his way across the stage to receive his diploma.  This has been kind of hard to believe.  Seminary has been a time of growth for us, not only spiritual but physically and emotionally as well.  Our family has grown while here, and this is the only home they have ever known.

We arrived here with a 3 month old baby.  Neither one of us had ever been away from “home”.  We were married young and here we were 22 and 23 years old.  We were still learning to be parents and had lots of questions, but no one to answer them.  I am really close to my family and didn’t know if I was going to make it those first 6 months.  Then God brought two wonderful dear friends into my life.  Michelle and Rebekah become the people that I needed.  We were all here for the first time.

Then this place started to become home.  We bought our first home, we added another baby and then another baby.  We knew the streets in and out, we knew our Church family so well.  This place had become our home.  We made more friends, we shared in their lives and they shared in our lives.  They have left their mark in our hearts and lives forever.

Now, it seems to be coming to an end.  It seemed so far away at the beginning of this semester, but now it seems to be here so quickly!  We are packing up boxes and books, books and more books.  I never could have imagined how many books we would leave here with!!!!  We are making plans for our place of ministry.  (I can’t wait to be able to post about it here soon).

Please be in prayer for us as we end our time here.  We will have many sad goodbyes said and many joyful tears as we think about the fun we have had.  Please pray for God’s wisdom in our job situation.  Dave is needing a transfer with UPS and the first attempt was denied.  The second attempted will go in early next week, please pray for us in this.

Congratulations!! What a long and blessed road. To think that you arrived in Lousivlle with only Isaac at 3 months old. That’s crazy. 🙂 I’m anxious to hear more about your plans!

Yeah, we are in a similar boat. Yet we are ready for seminary to be over and to start into full time ministry.

Just curious Becky- was Dave exempted from any of his finals? Brian was told they had a “new” policy that forbid this. 😦

No, he still has to take his finals, but the last week of classes was this week. He has 3 online, one in class and a paper for another class.

Other than that he is done! I do have to admit the one with the paper is taking up a lot of his time, today he is working on it and the kids and I are off to a Christmas brunch and party.
