What's in a name?

Today officially begins our next step and a new chapter: we are officially blogging!  One month from today we will be unloading a moving truck outside our new apartment in Chicago and starting the real next chapter of our adventure together.  We know that this next step will be full of excitement, challenges, opportunities and discovery as God teaches us and molds us and we want to be able to share that with you.  This is where we will share the details of what has been going on, as well as, struggle with things we are learning, rejoice and share praises and generally try not to ramble as we share life with you from a distance.

As I was setting up the blog this morning I was faced with the task of creating a name.  Who knew that naming a blog could be stressful?  But after a minor moment of panic and anxiety and realizing the world will not start nor stop due to my blog title, I began to reflect on the purpose of this blog, and the heart of our move to Chicago.  Seeking the Kingdom is at the heart of our move and the goal of our lives.  As the move is getting closer I am full of excitement and anticipation, but fear, anxiety and nerves kick in as well.  When I am quiet and reflect the overwhelming desire of my heart is to seek God's face and where he is leading: to seek his kingdom.  

Thank you for joining us on this journey (and for actually reading this blog).  Please keep in touch!
