Changing Seasons

Hi everyone,

I know it has been a while since I wrote to you all! I am very sorry. It has been a very busy time in my life, changes, and readjustments to a changing, yet familiar, life. My move has been pretty successful. We are not quite finished yet, but we are getting there. In the midst of our own move, we have been helping with my the moving of my Grandparents things out of their house. They passed away within 2 and a half months of each other last year, after 63 years of marriage. They had a 3 story house that they shared for the last 20+ years. We were blessed to be given my grandparents whole bedroom suit, that they had for as long as I can remember. We were also given their kitchen table and chairs, and a refrigerator, we desperately needed. A big thank you to my Uncle Bobby, Aunt Elisia, and my dad. I have very fond memories of them, and now I am surrounded by furniture that they used for most of my life, warming my heart with great memories, and keeping their spirits alive within me. Stifling through their things, and finding journals my grandmother had kept through the years, including one that she wrote as she met and started dating my grandfather, have been very touching and sentimental to me. Learning of my grandparents growing love for each other so many years ago, was a blessing for me. I love to read love stories, especially the ones of my own family. I finished reading a love story written by Karen Kingsbury this morning, it was the last in a series of four books, and it really inspired me and reinterated how much I want to live my life for Christ. I look forward to getting back into the routine of writing to you all again. I am just starting an English Composition class at school, and I hope it will teach me to be a better writer. Speaking of school, I just finished my Psychology class with an A, and a 4.o GPA. I feel really good about the direction my life is taking me and God's plans for my future. Jeremiah 29:11 "I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future" I know I can trust the Lord with my life! Talk to you all soon! Jackie
