A Place to Call Home

For the 8 of you who read this here blog, you are probably tired of hearing about our upcoming move.  But this is our life right now.  In fact, every two to three years, we box up and move on to the next shiny new duty station.  And if you all are lucky and stick around another year, you will get to hear about another grand move next summer. 

There are pros and cons to every move. There is excitement about meeting new friends and living close to old friends. The excitement about exploring our new town and finding out what all they have to do there.   But then there are the goodbyes...  I think of all the memories made in this house and the tears just come.  Too many precious memories to even count.  First days of school, first visit from the Tooth Fairy, learning to swim, learning to ride bikes without training wheels, so many best friends, learning to read, welcoming our 3rd little blessing, birthday parties, Christmas with family, the list really could go on and on.  Counting it all up, this move makes number 6 in our almost 12 years of marriage. 

It is always such a wild ride with each move.  Do we live on base or off?  Do we rent or buy?  We have done them all and they are never easy, but each move ALWAYS turns out just as God intended.  And He always picks the perfect spot for us. 

Thankfully God placed the perfect house in our lap at just the right time.  It will suit all of our needs and then some.  And we will only be about 3 miles from these sweet friends.

And only a few more miles to many other dear friends. 

As the saying goes, Home is where the Marine Corps sends us.
Welcome to 1 Saint Johns Court. 
Our new home.
