Family is a Gift

Family is a gift that God gave each of us.  For the past few months I've been praying for my sister and her husband as they navigated, thought, and prayed about their next step in life together.

As you may remember, I moved away from home in IL and have been away for a number of years now.  I love my dear home state of TN, but do miss my family greatly.  This being said, my sister just graduated and accepted a position for her first job here in TN!  Both her and her husband are amazing people with kind hearts and unique talents that I know will serve their new home in ways we cannot imagine. We cannot wait for them to share the same home state with us!  Soon they will only be within a few hours drive!  God has blessed them, and in turn blessed us abundantly with more family and bringing my family closer!

God is good.  My heart leaps for joy knowing how good He is.  At the end of the day when my eyes meet the mountains view from our back porch, I remind myself this life is to serve Him and what a privilege it is.

Thank you for your sweet, very true words.

I miss my family every day but can't wait to live near them again! Yay that your sister will be close by!
