Five Minute Friday – Home


Linking up with Lisa Jo again this week to participate in Five Minute Friday. I love this because it is just a commitment of five minutes of unedited writing….we can all do that can’t we?? So if you haven’t started this series yet…today’s the day! :)

Today’s word is HOME – ready, set go –

It is interesting to me that for the start Marshall has felt like our home. We both grew up in South Dakota, we lived the majority of our married life together in South Dakota. We have been here in Minnesota for less than 2 years. But from the moment we moved here it felt “right”.

God really blessed our moving experience. From finding a wonderful home, in a neighborhood filled with kids, to a church and church family that has blessed and challenged us….it has all felt like home to us.

It was such a big and scary step to make the move that we did. But even through all of the difficulties we have faced in the past 2 years, we have felt such love and support from this community here in Marshall – God is so good. He brought us to a new home, that never felt strange or out of place…it just always felt right.

My prayer for you is that wherever you find yourself today – you may find yourself at “home” and trust that even if it isn’t easy right now…God has a bigger purpose and plan for each of you! That has certainly been our experience!

    This is so true, in so many different ways: “He brought us to a new home, that never felt strange or out of place…it just always felt right.” I have so felt that — in relationships, jobs, and more. Loved this! (visiting from Lisa-Jo)

    Moving’s hard. I’ve had to do it several times for my husband’s work, and it’s a big adjustment. So glad you found a place that feels like home!

    I live in the town where I went to college. I said I’d never move back here. I thought I wanted a big city. But I’ve been back here for 9 1/2 years. And it’s home. I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Ironic, really. 🙂

    I’m in a similar place…we made a scary move to Illinois 2 1/2 years ago, and though it took a few months, God gave us that neighborhood, those friends, that church and community. It’s good…and it’s home. I get it. 🙂 So happy that you’ve been able to find home in a new place! (And I’m a former-MN girl…hubby and I lived in the Cities from 2002-2005.) 🙂
