So this is the view off of our front porch. I had no idea we could see mountains from our house until this week because the woods are so thick.
We are finally settling in to a routine here. We visit the nature center several times a week, as well as parks and libraries. I miss Denver, but I’m growing fond of Asheville. We have amazing neighbors, and next year we can join the Asheville homeschool coop.
We are really struggling right now with churches. A separate post on that should come in the near future, but I want to be so careful with my words. We are struggling to decide what kind of church Jesus actually calls for, and if it involves 3 songs, a 38 minute sermon, offering, communion and a closing. Should church be the whole family or should kids go to children’s church? Is it really personal preference, or it is Biblical? I have so many questions, and I’m taking my time to learn, to read, to pray. I’m not trying to jump into answers that feel easy or answers that I like. It’s hard…to sit in the discomfort. It’s hard to ask questions and really dislike the answers. I was comfortable in “the church” for so long and now I feel like an outsider.
But more on that to come soon.
Spread some love today.
