Finally Moved In...

It's really hard to know where to begin. Sometimes I think we have just closed a chapter in our lives, so that would be the end, but then we have begun a new one, so that is the beginning.

I think I start with where my heart has not been for almost nine years. My heart has not been home. I am a nester, a homemaker, an entertainer, a closet organizer and I love to garden. It's been almost nine years since a very painful divorce. So many wonderful things have happened since that time except one thing. I have not been home. When I was first divorced the kids and I lived in a place that I knew was short term. Then when David and I married we knew that our house would be about a six month stay, which turned into over three years. And then our rental, until the housing market took a turn to accommodate us. This is the first time in nine years that I have felt home. Truly home. This is where we want to be until God miraculously moves us. I have walked around in a daze these past two weeks. So amazingly grateful for the blessings of this home. I feel completely and comfortably home.

I have spent the sunny days out in the yard with the boys gardening my own dirt. This is a new beginning. I have waited a long time, with some sacrifices for this home. A home to accommodate the seasons to come in our family. Ethan asked today if we get to spend Christmas here, and birthdays and will I be a grandma in this house. It was so sweet to think about this truly being home.

So, I am back into blogging world. We were without TV and wi-fi for about two weeks. I will look forward to reading on every one's blogs and catching up. I have missed everyone I visit regularly. I have lost my camera in all of this move, so no pictures of the new house to share. Blessings to everyone...Elizabeth


  1. There is no place like "home!" Sounds like you are off to a good start and a new beginning! Congratulations!

  2. I have missed you these last couple of weeks but I figured that you have been quite busy with your move. So glad to read that you feel at home here and can't wait to see your pics when your camera pops up. :)

  3. Great news for you and your family. Finding roots and planting seeds...what a fun season of living.

    I, too, went through a difficult divorce in 1994. It was a long time before I found my footing again. Now, fourteeen years down the road, I'm living in a new state of contentment and freedom. Every day, I am thankful for God's miraculous and saving grace that allows me infinite promise and provision beyond my past.

    At the end of the day...at the end of this life...

    He is my home.

    Happy nesting to you and yours.


  4. Welcome Home. It's nice to be settled and find that place where peace and comfort reign. I'm very happy for you. Nine years is a long time. Enjoy it. I hope you find your camera so we can see your new home.

  5. I am so happy for you. It must be so nice to finally be home. I am praying for you to have many happy years in your new home. God Bless you and your family in their new surroundings.

    By the way is your house close to where you used to live or are your kids going to be meeting new friends and are you going to be meeting new neighbors?

    A garden!!!! Oh how I would love this.

  6. I'm glad to see you back! It is good to finally feel at home, isn't it?
