Adventures




The Ocean is so vast and Carolyn got her first experience with it this past week. Whether it was digging in the sand or splashing in the water, she always had to have me right at her side. The last few weeks have completely changed me. We've been going to a new church and feel like we click there. Our family is finally serving again in the Kingdom of God and it feels so rejuvinating. I started thinking about it. At CFC it wasn't like we weren't getting fed but I feel like our cups were full and without giving anything away it was just making our cups run over. The waters within weren't feeling the difference anymore with receiving because we were always full so we needed a chance to give away so we could fill up and feel the difference in our hearts. We've always felt God close to us during the past months but we need to see that water moving again. So now we're on a new adventure again and Carolyn is meeting more people and we're seeing the waves. We won't forget or lose touch with those who want to continue a relationship with us but we are eager to see the waves get bigger and bigger. And just like Carolyn...we're so excited to have God leading us and we'll stick right by His side.
