In Every Change

Be still my soul. The Lord is on thy side.
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain.
Leave to thy God to order and provide.
In every change, He faithful will remain.

Lots of change going on in my life these days. In less than 5 days I will be making my way across the country to a new job in Scottsdale, Arizona. I must say I never ever thought of living that far away from New England. I never really thought about leaving New England until recently. I have loved living here, and was especially enjoying
it this summer, having the luxury of not working and thus the freedom to travel at will any and every day.

But now, I'm about to embark on a new adventure. The uneasiness I feel when I think of leaving my family so far behind is tempered by the comfort of the verse above. Be still my soul.

This is indeed a huge change in climate and culture and you will surely feel the distance from family and friends.
Our recent 12 years in Wyoming felt a long way from New England, but each place has its adventures and new relationships.
I have often thought that in moving I cherish old friends, but have the opportunity to know and love others I wouldn't have met had I "stayed put."
I wish you well. [And I trust the cats will make the move safely!]
