Learning Mobile

saying goodbye to (part of) our Montgomery small group

We are living in limbo. During the weeks, we're finishing life in Montgomery:  dance recitals, soccer games, school parties, visiting friends.  But on the weekends, we're learning what it means to be "Mobilian."  Brad's first weekend as a preacher at Dauphin Way in Mobile was a few days ago.

May I brag on my husband?  He was made for this job.

May I brag on our new city?  I think I like what being "Mobilian" entails.

Brad and I crossed the bridge into Mobile late Friday night.  The girls stayed behind with their grandparents.  Maybe the luxury of a hotel weekend without children swayed me, but I felt so welcomed.  Our new landlords invited us to a block party, church members offered to bring meals when we moved in, and even the live oaks stretched their gnarled arms towards us congenially.

I don't think it will take long to fall in love with this place.

Our new house is at the end of this street.
 I swoon at that canopy of trees!

We had a tree canopy in Pensacola and it was always my favorite thing! Love y'all! Many prayers going up for your sweet family from ours.

Thanks so much, Stephanie! I will probably be e-mailing you as soon as I start home schooling. :) I need all of the wisdom you have to offer.
