Well, we are fast approaching a year since the moving trucks brought all our earthly goods here to Louisiana from Germany. 'Transplantation' (or moving, or PCSing for all you military types) has a way of teaching. We, as frequent transplants, are no exception and we have learned so much about ourselves these last few years, especially the last few months. I've learned that I need, I crave, beauty around me. And, I don't mean just to click away my memory card, but to just ponder.
As a military family, we learn to adjust and adapt with each move. The Lord uses unexpected friends and surroundings to gently teach. We must listen and be moldable, resilient. It's just easier that way. We've also learned to pay attention to who He puts in our paths, as it is usually not who we had anticipated.
We went out to some new friends' property yesterday. And, we talked about this very issue over a fabulous game of 'Forty'Two'. (You can't get much more country than that!) We had forgotten how it felt to live 'out' and 'away'. They only live 30 miles out of town but it felt wonderful to reunite with nature. We miss our little German village nestled into the hills of an incredible pristine landscape. All kinds of animals greeted us there on our daily strolls, cattle, horses, chickens, ducks. Yesterday was a little therapy for our souls.
Easter and Spring blessings from Della and Yonder Blue!!
