A House is Made of Bricks and Beams. A Home is Made of Hopes and Dreams.

We did it! I never thought we would, but we did.

We moved.

Not just around the corner or a couple of hours away, but across the country!

And even more surprising is that we moved from our beloved farm in the country to the heart of suburbia.

Talk about a major change!

As you may have read in one of my previous posts, my husband was moved to his company’s corporate office in Denver. So we now live in the suburbs of Denver.

Yes-the suburbs.

In a housing development!

This farm wife is totally out of her element!

We now have neighbors, like really close neighbors.When I walk out on our deck I am startled by the friendly neighbors saying hello.

Everyone seems to be very nice and welcoming. It is a very nice area. But it is so different from home.

It is definitely gonna take some getting used to.

Everything is different. The house that we now live in is very different, the neighborhood we now live in is very different, the climate is definitely very different (it is so dry!) and our new life here is also very different.

It is ALL different.

However, we remain the same.We are the same people with the same hopes and dreams as we have always had.

We are following the path that has been put before us and although it is different and we don’t understand what God has in store for us, we will remain faithful and follow His will.

We have not and will not change who we are. We will remain the same family that loves our Lord, our family and our friends. We will do our best to remember where we came from and where we are going.

Things may be different and our address may have changed but when we are together we are always home.

As we get settled in to our new normal, I can’t help but wonder why the Lord has lead us here.

I wonder what He has planned for us.

I wonder how long we will be here before we can go home …

I don’t know the answers but I will trust in Him.

What I do know is that we will be faithful and thankful for all He has done for us.

We have been given an opportunity to live in a different area and meet new people and have new adventures.

We will now be able to spend more time together as my husband will not be traveling as much.

We will be grateful for what we have.

Another thing that I do know is that just because my address has changed doesn’t mean I have.

I will always be the Perfectly Imperfect Farm Wife no matter where I am-

even in the suburbs 🙂
