Sometimes the road seems to stetch straight out in front for miles, with nothing set to change but the season and the leaves on the trees. But while we might plan our way, the Lord directs the steps. There are gentle curves and abrupt corners in the road whether we see them or not.

We are moving! That only carries full shock value if you know that this is the family that was never moving again. By February/March, we will be living in a newly built house. It is in the same valley, but the actual town will be different. Here is how it happened:

Wednesday- Mom offhandedly remarked, “I wonder if we should move.”

Thursday- Mom looked at houses during the day. Dad and Mom went back in the evening to look again.

Friday- “We’re moving.”

Saturday- “We bought a house!”

How is that for a bend in the road?
