We are all stewards of the story that God has given us. It is a good story. There are elements of pain and great joy in our story, but it is our story. It is a story of redemption and hope. We have always wanted to leave a legacy to our kids. Leaving them with hopes and telling them that big dreams can come true!
We are in our second phase of the cafe, putting in all new electrical and sheet rock. At this point this crazy dream of ours seems impossible! It’s a true test enemy of faith and hope of something we believe in. God teaches us every day, “How Amazing !”
I would have never thought in my wildest dreams that I would be the owner of a cafe, let alone; having a deed to a bought building! This new life of ours have many surprises with capabilities that was hidden for years! You never know what you can handle until you try to handle it, if that makes sense!
We are transforming a building into something that is was never built for, a jazz cafe! An exciting but yet challenging dream my husband and I have always wanted to do! Ecclesiastes 9.10: “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might.”
This is the beginning of a miraculous story of how we left Texas and followed a path of uncertainties. With God at our side along for the ride, we are truly living a Feastful Life! I can’t wait until this all comes together to share with others that it’s possible. I will try my best to post our journey as this is an exciting one!
Being in New Hampshire and seeing all of its glorious surroundings is truly an everyday vacation. With this great opportunity of producing PorcFest we couldn’t be any happier about our decision to leave our hometown. We are truly thriving in our community and can’t wait for more to come this 2017 year!
Lord, in my consciousness this morning a crowd of little things presses in and I bring them straight to your presence. In your wisdom you say, “Peace, be still.” Help me to always see the beauty of your peace as I cross various bridges and paths. I ask this in your name,AMEN.
For five years I’ve been trying to get to this event! I’m so glad we are finally here living in NH and only 32 min. away from the biggest Liberty gathering in NH. I’m intrigued over the few families that I’ve met that want the same thing that I want for my kids. I may not believe everything they believe, but here it’s ok. I’m not scrutinized or judged because of it.
My girls get to open doors to different cultures and beliefs. My 14 year old met a friend and asked her about her religion. The girl stated that she was an atheist. My daughter told her she was a Christian and asked her if she wanted to go swim☺️
That was the end of that conversation and they spent the day together in harmony without trying to convert one another. If kids can do this, why can’t we as adults? I’m learning so much from just watching my kids. They make me want to be a better me! This is just day one of Porcfest. We have five more days to go!
This is my 14 year old free dancing in the field making all kinds of new friends.I love her free spirit and carefree soul that excepts others different than her. She understands that we must love people because God loves us all. The world would be a much better place if everyone would just except this kind of love!
The more I get connected with the people I meet,the more I’m loving this new state we are in. We have gone hiking up 2,000 feet into the mountains where the weather changes constantly. This is not a bad thing! It’s the most beautiful thing a person can witness with an undoubtable mind of how God truly exists!
During the hike, my oldest daughter was the best coach ever! I am not in the best of shape and sometimes I forget how bad a shape I’m in after I’ve already signed us up for something extreme.I couldn’t have done it without her coaching me and telling me that “you can make it,we are almost there,so you can do it”!
Her spirit reminds me daily of why I do what I do! I try to be the best mom I can be, there is no manual for parenting! I love our new life here and wouldn’t change it for the world. New Hampshire has a sweet spot in my heart as we are growing stronger together as a family!
Well, we made it to a month living in Berlin, New Hampshire! I love that my kids get to experience other religions and different culture! We found a church which is ok but need help on a number of things;which I am so glad to help collaborate on.
We were invited today to a Holy Communion party for a six year old. Meeting people that is so different from us but think the same when it comes to raising kids is such a relief. It’s funny how we think or we are programmed to think people of different religions won’t be able to get along, “Why is this so?”
We believe and have faith in the same God and Jesus sat with any and everybody! I think when we as a whole look at everyone the way Jesus did and the way God do, it’s then when we will have peace in our surroundings. We will then have peace within our communities because we will only see the individual as just a good person.
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.
