the past couple of years, my life has been in a state of flux. Nearly
everything (except the promises of God for me in Christ) was an improvised, temporary solution
that could change in an instant. It’s not exactly a fun way to live, but I
kind of got used to it. I did learn to cling even more to the few things
that I could count on (“I am baptized”), especially when that state of flux would occasionally
shift into outright chaos.
And then all of a sudden, the Lord brought me to Loveland. (Have I mentioned
that I love it here??) Dream job, pastor who knows the Gospel, great
schools, wonderful people, amazing view to the west…I could go on…
Thursday morning, I dug in my toes, put down roots, and bought myself a
home. Thursday afternoon, three guys in a moving truck showed up with
lugged in box after box and all sorts of furniture, so much that I had to make
them put it in the basement. Thursday night, I slept in my own bed on my
own sheets in my own room in my own house.
What a wild ride. God is so good.
