A while back, I read Candace Cameron Bure’s book “Dancing through Life”, and there’s a quote in the book that stuck with me. So much so, that I still think of that quote months later.
Andy and I found our church home sooner than we had anticipated, in fact, prior to us even getting married. A friend of a friend is a pastor of a church geared specifically toward military families and we felt at home immediately. The pastor and a few key leaders in the church reached out to Andy and me the first week we visited, and we’ve been in touch ever since. They’re helping us settle into life here, and the ladies are taking me under their wing.
A girl I worked at summer camp with a few years ago lives on post with her aviator husband and offered to show me around and help me settle into military life. She even let me housesit for them while Andy was having surgery and they were out of town.
Andy’s cousin offered us literally every piece of furniture we needed to fill up our house… for free! We just had to pay for a U-Haul rental to bring them back to Knox.
For reasons I didn’t understand, I somehow befriended numerous military girlfriends/wives in my past few years of blogging. I never desired to be one of them, so imagine my surprise when suddenly I became one. God wasn’t surprised though, because He planned for me to have a support group long before I even knew Andy.
As hard as it was leaving my life behind in Owensboro, I’m excited for the new life that I am starting with my husband. And thanks to the positive attitude God has given me, I’m ready for this adventure.
