February 29th

Our new place in Peterborough
The day we've anticipated with bittersweet emotions has finally arrived.  Today is the closing date for the sale of the house we bought  3 1/2 years ago.  

Buying that home wasn't bittersweet.  At the time it was mostly painful as we had downsized...moving from our "dream home" in Cavan.  

It took us a couple of years to really feell at home in Douro-Dummer township but Carol really fixed our home up nicely and by the time we sold it...a couple of months ago...we hated the prospect of leaving it.

Today begins another chapter in our lives.  We have moved into Peterborough  after enjoying rural life for close to 18 years.  Our expenses will be reduced significantly.  Our boys will be able to get around town easier.  There's bus service just down the street.  With gas prices being what they are, we will save a lot just in fuel costs.

So, as we close out the month of February in this Leap Year, we take a leap of faith trusting that God will provide providentially as He has so faithfully done in the past.

As we march into March (or stumble in) we do so wondering what God has in store for us in the days ahead.

We value your prayers as we step into the unknown with the One who holds the future...holding us in His everlasting arms.



  1. Many blessings to you and your family as you make this move. My husband and I just went through it a couple of months ago. God is with you.

  2. Hope the move and adjustments go well! :)

  3. blessings on your new home ... it looks lovely, and i know Carol will transform it to a place of peace and comfort for you all ...

    i've been away from blogging (again! you know how that goes!!) ... but i do think of blog buds when things happen, like Gary Carter's passing - i knew that would be a personal loss for you as well ... what a joyous time heaven will be, when we once again gather with friends & family - only this time, it will be a forever home with Jesus ...
