The Old is Gone...

“…anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person.
The old life is gone; a new life has begun!
2 Corinthians 5:17 nlt

The old is gone…the new has begun

From lawn chairs, office equipment, pots and pans to keepsakes and pictures, much of our old life arrived in a big truck 10 days ago to our new house and into our new life. It took 4½ hours to unload the all of our earthly possessions. Yet, much of our old life didn’t arrive…like the safety and comfort of familiar faces and places.

This certainly hasn’t been our first move away from our childhood upbringings, but it has been the hardest.

New and Renewed Hope

“…I have hope when I think of this:
The Lord’s love never ends; His mercies never stop.
They are new every morning; Lord, your loyalty is great.
I say to myself, “The Lord is mine, so I hope in him.”
Lamentations 3:22-24 ncv

New house, new neighbors, new city, new state, new church…new beginnings with renewed hope
