I missed celebrating it on the exact day last week... but August 26th marks the date we moved to Georgia! We have now been living here for FOUR years! We moved when I was 14 years old and now I'm an ancient 18 and 1/2! :) Can you believe it? It seems like forever to me.
I love living in Georgia! The climate is beautiful, the people are friendly (for the most part - :D), and life is good. :) My family and I so enjoy living in the peach state. I am so thankful to God for his hand upon us, moving us here. It's a long story, but without God's help we would never have been so blessed. We sold our house in Florida right before the bottom dropped out of the real estate market, at the perfect moment, all in God's timing.
The Lord removed so many roadblocks to get us here, it's amazing. Hurricane Katrina (you know, the one that ruined New Orleans) nearly smashed into Florida the day we were packing up our belongings into the moving truck! We kept praying and to our amazement the storm dipped around Florida, only grazing the keys with a few rain bands. I almost felt like God had nudged the hurricane out of our way! :)
All in all, I have an overwhelming sense of joy and contentment, looking back over these 4 years, seeing what my heavenly Father has done for me and my family.
It's good to look back and see what the Lord has done. Thank you God!
