Now it is real. After telling Evie about our future move to Reno, after seeing her face crumple at the first thought of leaving her friends and teachers, after considering how strange I felt in this town when we moved here 12 years ago, and how woven into its tapestry we have become...after all of that, it is now real.
God's hand is all over this, I know it is. As comforting as that thought is, and as much as there is a peace that's flowing through me; there is also fear and wonder which fills my heart in this splendid moment of isolation.So I practice the faith which I have preached...
God asks us to now move from the friends and family who have loved us through our times of strength and our times of weakness; from my embarrassing breakdown at the pharmacy, to our triumphant fundraising for Relay for Life; who will know us and love us as this town does? And with Minnesota only a few short hours away, I never felt the loneliness that might come with a day and more between us.
God asked Abraham to sacrifice his son, asked Noah to build an ark, asked Moses to lead the Israelites from the safety of slavery into the uncertainty of the Promised Land.

Okay, God, I'm trusting you to hold us and carry us through...
Reno holds the beautiful promise of a new adventure, and a new growth for our little family...a father, a mother, a daughter and two kitties. "Go west." God says..
