The Sun doth rise and set each day;
The Moon hath many a face.
The Flowers bloom, seed, wither and fade,
And another one takes it's place.
The Tide flows in and than flows out,
Leaving treasures as it goes;
And taking what once clothed the beach,
To places it does not know.
New Life is given as each day passes,
Another life that once was is now gone,
Leaving a colorful history behind them,
And a legacy that will carry on.
Seasons come and seasons go,
The months pass quickly by,
Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall,
They fly before our eyes.
Seasons in life are sure to change,
Some happy and others not,
And yet we must always thank our God,
For each and every change He brought.
I promised a post to let y'all know of the change in our lives. Southerners to the core, our family will be answering a call from the great mid-west (they refuse to let us call it the north. ;-)). While up in IL a few weeks ago, we spent time with a wonderful congregation. My Dad received a call from them asking him to fill the role of pastor of their fellowship. After much prayer and seeking God's guidance, our family has felt the hand of God upon us, blessing this change.
We put our house on market late last week, and after four very short days, our house sold today. We will be moving out by the end of the month to start a new season of our lives among some new wonderful friends. Please keep our family in your prayers as deal with the stress of being moved out in twenty days. :) For those of you who have seen our home can imagine the amount of boxes and bubble wrap we will need. The Serven Clan had a contest to see how many boxes it took them to pack their books, and we thought about doing the same thing. So far, we have 30 boxes of JUST books packed, but that is only the schoolroom and my mom's room. :) I'll try to keep an accurate count.
As of last night, Christa and Daniel are officially engaged, which adds another dimension of excitement to our lives. Please keep them in prayer as they seek God's will for their lives and make decisions regarding their future.
We will sorely miss all y'all here in Texas. But remember, IL has much cooler weather, four seasons, and it snows! So, feel free to visit us any time! I'll try to keep y'all posted as things move along, but I won't promise anything.
