The End of the Beginning
Hello Faithful Friends, Family and Followers!
Today's update comes from me, Danielle, and yes, this is my first post to the blog! I'm excited! John is busy keeping up with his masters work and getting the new office settled, me on the other hand, I'm shopping, Garage Sale-ing, visiting friends and family and now, writing on the blog.
People have been asking for an update, so here it is:
We are now in Fishers, getting settled into our apartment, but I'll back track a bit. The above pic is our truck all packed up ready to head out, again a huge thanks to everyone who helped, what would we have done with out you?!?!
Sunday afternoon, we said goodbye to our dearest friends in Mukwonago. It was heartbreaking to have to leave them. It was emotionally draining and much harder than we anticipated, but we had to remain strong and know that we are following the Lord, and He knows what He's doing, even when we don't. We trucked down the interstate right to our apartment where there was a good 35 people waiting to help us unload our truck. We were so thankful to have their smiling faces awaiting our arrival. They unloaded the truck within a hour, then went to John's office to unload all the office gear, then onto my mom and dad's to store all the "storage" stuff, aka "Junk we don't need but think we do"!! :) Everyone was so helpful, some of our family even until 2 AM that nite! We are thankful to be with people who love us so much-our family and Fall Creek Wesleyan. They are great people who have already been so kind, loving and fun!
All in all, getting settled here hasn't been too hard. We had people from the church bring groceries right away and put then into the fridge and cabinets, then on Monday morning, God sent an angel named Alisa, who helped me get my entire kitchen settled that day! Super cool! We only have about 10 boxes left to go through and decorations to hang, then we need a pantry for our kitchen to store all the food, then we'll be set!
We still miss Mukwonago, and probably will for some time, but we are trusting the Lord and His plan and feel confident that this is the path He is paving for us.
Other news: John is computer-less again, for at least 10 more days. He's heartbroken. He had a brand new Mac Book Pro, BEAUTIFUL and so cool to use and it flipped out when we fed it the Microsoft Office CD, it was SOOO flipped out it had to be sent out to be repaired, and we couldn't even get the CD out...ugh! What a drag for him!
Well anyway, This pic is us as we were about to pull out of the church parking lot last sunday, WE LOVE YOU MUK-TOWN! WE REALLY DO MISS YOU ALL!
PLEASE add a comment, let us know how you are all doing. We'll post more pics of the apartment when we get John's computer back, if not sooner!
