I’m still here…

This is less about following my website/blog theme of being challenging, encouraging, and inspiring  to Live Out Loud for Jesus, and more to let you know that I’m still here.

So much has happened in my life over the past few months, that writing anything has been difficult (death of two loved ones in a week, children & grandchildren came for a fabulous family vacation, and the start of our relocation).

Our hearts ache to leave Montana so soon because we have more awesome people to meet… more places to see on our visit list…more joy of living in this wonderfully quiet place. An old song has become our hearts’ theme: Merle Haggard’s “Big City” 



But God has other plans for us. He has awesome people…beautiful places…and a new life in Colorado awaiting us. And by the end of this month, we’ll be humming John Denver’s “Rocky Mountain High” 



If you've followed my posting at all over the past 18 months, you know the crazy journey my husband and I have been on. If not, I won’t bore you with those events and let you read them if you chose to.What I can tell you is that when life is confusing, we must:

Trust the Lord with all your heart,
    and don’t depend on your own understanding.

Remember the Lord in all you do,
    and he will give you success.” Proverbs 3:5-6

“Walk by faith, and not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7

“…forgetting what lies behind and
 reaching forward to what lies ahead,
I press on toward the goal...” Philippians 3:13-14

Trust without understanding...
Live by what I believe, not by what I can see...
Let go of the past and move toward the future.

And sort, organize, and repack…what the movers won’t take and what we want to keep with us.

God bless you on your journey.
