I am starting to feel scared about moving back to kingston. I am so longing to be there, but becoming so scared that I'm not really looking forward to it anymore. My time here has changed me. And my friends back home. Our families have all gotten older, they have changed.... are our kids going to get along anymore? Have we been forgotten there, like we have been here? how long will it take for us to adjust to being in kingston? It took us over a year of being here to adjust to missing our friends in kingston.

I'm concerned.

Oh, Jordin... it WILL be an adjustment. It WILL take time. But I think that if you're realistic and prepared for that and can accept it, you'll be able to ride it out and will eventually settle into something really great here in Kingston. It won't be exactly what it was 3 years ago. It will be something new and different and GOOD!

I have had apprehensions, too, but all in all, I am so looking forward to having you guys back and I think this move will be a really good thing. Do you know the date yet? Or does it depend on house stuff?

Things will never be the same, but sometimes they're even better.

Jordin,
I love you! And I'm going to miss you terribly when you move back to Kingston. There will be many things I'll miss...but most of all it will be knowing that you're just down the hill when I need to vent, and the fact that you hear what I'm saying...and accept me anyway. I love the way that you have your own opinion and 'tell it like it is', that really is refreshing in todays society - it's sadly kind of a rare thing...I apprereciate you for exactly who God created you to be!

Time does change people; their circumstances; and their character. Don't fret about it. The Lord will place those people back in your life...if they will better it, and you theirs. Just the same, He will bring about more new people that will allow you to continue to grow in Him...showing His faithfulness and the glory will be all His!!

'Moving on' and 'letting go' is what I'm facing too, only from the other side - the one being 'left behind'. My surroundings stay the same, yet several friends are being taken from me in the next few months (geographically speaking). It's a time of transition for us all, in our own ways. May we all hold tight to the promises of God and rest in the knowledge that one day we will all be together again...amen?!!

Don't doubt for a minute that you'll be 'forgotten' by me...and with skype I plan to stay in touch the best way we can!

"Friends are friends forever, if the Lords the Lord of them..."...I just had to finish with a quote from your favorite aritst Michael W Smith, LOL!!! Still, it's true :)

We are still praying for the house to have at least an offer by Friday. We will be coming down Friday night and on search for THE house. Pray for us please!!!

Either way we will be living down there come Mid July. Probably at the cottage. Maybe that will be a good transition time.
