Hey Y'all! It's been CrAzY busy (that might be a favorite phrase of mine) with our move to VA. Lots of life changes. We've become empty nesters after 32 years of having a child in the home. Well, actually WE had to leave home to get this way. ;-) Our youngest son is still living in our family home in NC with his cousin for a room mate. Oh yeah. Two young men on their own for the first time. Big changes ALL the way around!!!
I managed to dig out my camera in anticipation of last night's Super Moon and Lunar Eclipse. Well, too much cloud cover and high winds made it challenging to get a good shot. Add to that my own exhaustion and impatience, and needless to say the photos didn't come out too good. I didn't stay up late enough to get any of the eclipse but I honestly think it would have been solid clouds by then because we ended up getting rain again.
God's handiwork is beautiful despite my meager attempt to capture it! I know many folks got the perfect glimpse of the night sky. My husband and I enjoyed standing on our balcony overlooking the Chesapeake Bay and dreaming of all the adventures to come our way on this next step in our journey.
And then there are the gorgeous sunrises! I have always enjoyed seeing the sunrise over the foothills in NC and especially from our back deck that overlooked our chicken coop. Always a great way to start the morning, listening to the rooster crow and the 'girls' clucking away, letting me know they are giving me a gift (eggs). :)
I still have to pinch myself to believe that He moved us from the foothills of NC to the coast of VA. I honestly thought we would never move!
While I do miss my little hobby farm, now I get to hear the roar and power of the ocean, which always makes me stand in AWE of GOD and his great power!!! Long walks and combing for seashells is fast becoming a part of my day.
And He said to them, "Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men."
My prayer is that the Lord will use my husband and I to be a beacon of light to all those we come in contact with. We are so thankful for our friends and family who have cheered us on!
As time permits, and more boxes get unpacked, I'll be back with some book reviews, giveaways, photography excursions and general life happenings.
Blessings from VA,
