Mark and I are about to go through a big change and I don’t think we will be seeing much snow where we are going. God has called us to move. It is uncomfortable and scary. There are ten times more things unknown than things known. I am excited though. I don’t want to live a comfortable life.

That is just not for me and its not for Mark either.
