On Saturday night we gathered with our dear friends (The Borhorfoush's, Huffstetler's, Johnson's, Jonas', Tidwell's, McKenzie's, Green's, and Nix's) for a farewell send off party before we move to Gulfport this week. Leaving all of them is the absolute hardest thing we have ever had to do, but we know our friendships with them will last a lifetime. We have so many roots here and have called Birmingham home since 2002. Moving to Gulfport is a great career opportunity for Eric, and it will put us a lot closer to family...so for that we are very grateful. We are all called at one point in our life to leave our "comfort zone" in order to go where God is leading us. Eric and I are very obedient to God's plan for our life and have felt His hand over us throughout this whole process/new journey He is leading us to. We are going to miss this town so much, especially Church of the Highlands. As Eric and I walked out the main entrance of church yesterday morning with tears rolling down our faces...we knew and felt that God was taking us away for a reason and all we could do was thank him for what lies ahead.
