"For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace." John 1:16

A place for us to document and share the grace upon grace we have received.

Welcome Home!

The month of April has been a busy one for our family! It has been a long several weeks, emotionally and physically draining at times, but I am so thankful for many things!  We had some hard "good byes" in Ocean Springs and we had some sweet  "hellos" in Texas!  It never really gets easier moving even when we are going back to a situation we are familiar with and love. To pick up a family and move across states with 5 children and a husband overseas is still fairly crazy...but it is done!  Now just the re-adjusting, organizing and figuring out life here...I want to tell you all more, but after non stop days, I think I have hit my wall and am exhausted!   I am trying to catch up a bit, but did want to post a couple pictures!  We are so thankful for the meals stocked in our freezer, the milk in our fridge, the help unpacking, setting up the trampoline, the computers and internet, the childcare, and the list goes on.  I am amazed at how many people just knew what they needed to do to help...they said "there will be time to chat later, lets get unpacking!"  And we did!  I get tears just thinking about the love shown to our family in this journey.  It is not over yet...John is still in Afghanistan (actually right now I think he is in Kuwait for a project) and even after he gets back, we will have to be apart a bit...but for now God has brought us back to our home in Schertz....and we are thankful!  May we be faithful!
