It's hard to believe it's been four years exactly since the first blog entry and this upstream journey began. The cycles of finding ourselves overwhelmed by life's circumstances and in the next moment finding ourselves overwhelmed by God's goodness and victory keep rolling. At first, our eyes might have been set on what we would SEE in our travels, but we've discovered it's been much more of a journey in the realm of what we can't see with our eyes and struggle to articulate. (Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”)
As the illusions of safety, stability, security and comfort have faded, we've had the privilege of learning to live in the real presence of the great Protector, Defender, the Rock, our Provider, Comforter and Healer! We all could tell unending stories of miraculous things that only God could have orchestrated. We've met countless amazing people across the country and love EVERY ONE!! It's been truly amazing and it still feels like the journey has just begun. Our future plans are written in James 4:13-14.
