the fulfillment of promise

we are moving.

to zanesville.

to the house my grandparents lived in and raised their eight children.

to the six acres where I spent my childhood exploring and enjoying.

i remember the cherry tree just behind the house and the pies that came from it.

i remember the broken arm from jumping off the swingset and giant zucchini from the garden.

i remember the love that was there, and the kindness I was shown.

i hope for wild summers with my children and cabins built from scraps.

i hope for abundant gardens and sufficiency.

i hope to learn about the enjoyment of the earth and resting in providence.

i am thankful for promise, and for the fulfillment of the hope that has rested in my heart.

i am thankful for beauty and new adventures.

i am thankful for merchab, for this spacious place.

“He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me.” Psalm 18:19
