THE DAY HAS COME


For nearly nine months we have prayed earnestly for this day. Many supplications had been offered up to the Throne of God that He might, in His mercy, see fit to answer our prayers and bring this day about. In His amazing Providence, God chose March 15th, 2006, the exact six month anniversary of our leaving New Jersey, to be the day settlement on our old home was consummated.

We praise God that in His timing, He brought this sale about. Selling our home was a long and hard road, but through this we have learned so much about truly trusting God. Tonight I give thanks that not only our home is sold, but that we learned to give thanks even when it wasn't.

Congratulations! God's timing is always best.

But it seems odd to say: "Congratulations" since in fact, those of us who are left here in NJ are finding cold comfort in the fact that there are strangers occupying a home which holds such fond memories of caroling, dinners, prayer-meetings, holiday celebrations, sleep-overs, and surprise birthday parties. Nonetheless, we thank-you all for being such hospitable friends that have left a history of memories for us to reminisce about!

Cori: Next year in Dublin! :)

Richleau: It was a bitter-sweet day for us as well. Although praising the Lord for His mercies in selling our home, it was hard to finally say good-bye.
