Ed is retiring in 2012. We are moving to Colorado in 2013. The reality of this situation is slowly beginning to settle into our hearts and minds. Many people have come up to us and asked us about "Soaring Wings" and what we will be doing out in Colorado. I always love it when people ask me to tell them about "Soaring Wings"! It is always such a pleasure to talk about something that I am passionate about and excited about! I have found that I have an increased sense of joy and confidence in telling people about Soaring Wings and our plans to help homeless young adults. I guess living in reality is a good thing!!!!! Anyways, it is also so interesting to observe how people react to our plans for Soaring Wings. I can tell you right now that I can instantly tell which people "get it" and totally understand what we plan to do and why we plan to do it. The ones who "get it" are such an encouragement to us. It is not easy to give up everything that is familiar to us and everything that we love to move to Colorado and so the encouragers are SUCH A BLESSING TO US!!!!! They give us strength to move forward with confidence and excitement. They let us know that is ok if we don't have all the answers. They remind us that God is leading the way and that He is faithful. They also are willing to help by praying for us, donating financially to Soaring Wings and by offering to travel out to Colorado to help us. So to all you encouragers out there.....THANK-YOU SO MUCH!!!!! I have always said that Ed and I cannot develop Soaring Wings on our own. We need encouraging people to come along side us. We need encouragers to keep us going when we feel overwhelmed. We need encouraging people to pray for us, to donate to Soaring Wings and to come visit us out in Colorado (bring work gloves, sunscreen, a water bottle, a hat and a Bible because we will put you to WORK and we will have FUN too!!!!) We are truly excited for all that God has planned for Soaring Wings and the homeless young adults out in Colorado and we are so excited to share this journey with EVERYONE!!!!
