A Fresh Start
We’re home! To be honest, it feels kind of weird. We moved right back into the house we have lived in for the past 8 years so we really have come back home. It’s strangely familiar. It kind of feels like we have stepped through some kind of time warp almost as if this past year in Nashville was all a dream. The good thing is that we have an amazing opportunity to start fresh with our house, our neighbors, and our community.
One of the things that we have been struck by since we have been back is how much this area is continuing to grow. Having lived here for the last 8 years, we have seen a lot of growth happen and the data/ statistics show it as well. But there’s just something about seeing it when we drive around. A couple of different thoughts hit me as I look around our “little” community…
1. I’m excited as a resident to have all of these great places right at our fingertips rather than having to drive 20-30 minutes any time I want or need to go somewhere. There’s a Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts less than 2 miles from our house! (That actually might be a bit dangerous.)
2. There are 3 subdivisions either being planned or under construction within walking distance of our neighborhood. Holly Springs isn’t a secret anymore and new people are moving in left and right. I’m a bit overwhelmed as I think about it because every day the need for the Gospel grows with each new business, subdivision, and family that moves in. With each family comes a unique set of challenges, opportunities, and needs. We pray that God will use us to connect as many of them to Him as possible.
3. Like a mountain climber standing in front of a 15,000 foot peak I’m pumped and ready to get moving! I’m so thankful for the vision and training God has given us and I know that He will be faithful to provide all we need every step of the way.
The mountain in front of us is huge and there’s no way we could possibly conquer it alone. God is using you to help propel His vision for LifeSpring forward through your continued prayers and financial support. Your partnership is vital and we greatly appreciate it! If you haven’t yet taken the step to partner with us, we would love for you to “join the movement” through prayer, financial giving, or by going with us! We can’t wait to see what God is gong to do next!
