Winds of Change

Do you ever “just know” that God is about to shift your life into another direction? Well, those winds of change are swirling at my house. We are praying and seeking what the Lord is doing. Today, I sat outside on my “dream” patio. I love it out there. I sat for the longest time just thinking back over my life. And the adventures I have lived.

wedding 1987
Our wedding in 1987

Next, Saturday, I will celebrate 27 years of marriage with my best friend. To this day, we can sit for hours and talk. We take a cruise every year, and spend hours just sitting beside each other. I love him so much. Don’t get me wrong here, it has not always been a “blissful” time. We have had our struggles and heartaches. But, the joys have been many.

27 years on 5-31
Us today!

We have birthed two amazing girls and traveled to two different countries to adopt a 6 year old little girl, Candace, from China, and a 9 month old baby boy, Cameron, from Guatemala.

Lindsey
Lindsey’s birth in 1993

We have been blessed to homeschool all 4 and have seen the fruits of our labor as our oldest, Lindsey is about to start medical school!

Lauren's birth 1996
Lauren’s birth in 1996

Our middle daughter, Lauren, leaves in a week to travel for 14 weeks doing missions work across the states. While our joys have been great, we have also had huge losses.

Feb 2001 Cameron Gotcha Day
Cameron’s Gotcha Day – February 2001

We have rejoiced as all of our children have on their own, each chosen to live their lives for Jesus!

Oct 2003 Candace Gotcha Day
Candace’s Gotcha Day – October 2003

Our daughter Candace from China was diagnosed with a terminal brain disease in 2006 and sadly passed away at the age of 13 in 2009.

So, in a nutshell we have ridden our highs and lows. But, all with the Lord as our driver.

crew today
Our crew today

I can honestly say, I don’t know what the next 27 years will hold for us. But, I do know the One who does! So, we will wait. We will wait and see how the Lord uses our children in their gifts and talents. We will wait to see how this next phase of our lives will play out. We will hopefully build new dreams, new memories, and live our lives as Jesus guides. Yep, the wind is blowing, but, I can honestly say, “I am excited!”

Blessings,
Nancy
