I had to have watched this movie multiple times and never really understood the title “A Cool Dry Place“until recently.You go to a place,not knowing your place,but hoping you would fit in. Hoping that the keys would fit into the door you feel you closed,not knowing if God intended for you to even close that door. I think faith allows us to see things shown while feeling a discernment of unquestionably doubt.
We don’t always know our plan, but trying to keep the faith in the process of not knowing is what makes us stronger. This place in Berlin,NH has been an humbling experience, especially coming from somewhere like Katy,Texas where my surroundings was that of an uppity aristocrat. The simple subtle life that we have moved to is definitely a culture shock to my kids, but a need that is here is far more greater than the need to have what we were use to.
I love this new little simple town and slow paced life! I get to slow down and see what’s in front of me! I get to take the time to unlock more doors and find more ways to bless others!
My 10 year old said that she felt free as I was taking this picture of her by the creek! I told her this is a cool dry place and she said “its lakes everywhere so it’s not dry, it’s wet!” She will get it one day I said to myself.
Two weeks feel more like a month here in NH already! Time really flys by and enjoying every moment of it! Our sons have decided to join us, one is 20 and the other is 17😕
Just when I got use to planning meals for four, I’m now back at finding meals for a family of six😞
In all, I feel complete with all of my kids under one roof! Now the planning begins to get them back on their own and planning their own meals so we can go back to saving money!!!!
Just when you think that a decision you’ve made is a crazy one,God shows up! Sometimes I feel he’s not listening to any of my prayers and I feel like I’m on my own. You never know his plan for your life, you just hope that your plan and path you take is the right one. Driving yesterday and viewing god’s beauty gave me hope in knowing that I’m on the right path.
Our new home, what a journey to say we live in New Hampshire!
I’m in love with this home and pictures really don’t do this any justice. The view is fantastic and I can breathe! Berlin, New Hampshire is not the type of town you run to. It’s an old mill run down type of look and I know the locals are like; what the hell? We are literally the only blacks from what I’ve noticed so far. The beautiful thing is, we are here just because.
My husband works from home and I homeschool my kids. We simply want something different and see what life has to offer somewhere else! I just want to be somewhere else. Many have said how we could have chosen a place near home in Texas or something a little more fast paced. We chose to live simple and slow! The world has its own problems with fast paced and agenda living and I’m choosing to slow down and live life.
Well traveled until the Jersey Turnpike😕 40 bucks at the toll, then when asked about the next toll; we were told it would be $80 so we quickly got off! Determined to find another route, we lost at least 3 extra hours!
Traveling ok after that little hick up until we reached Connecticut! A beautiful state with hidden crap of no big vehicles on certain roads as well as no trailers either! Spent another 2 1/2 hours trying to find a highway that would allow us on without the fear of a hearty fine. Thank God we were able to get rest at our friends home in Maryland or we wouldn’t have made it!
