Forever Changed

Friday my heart was so full. I woke up and posted about my crazy awesome news, which I still really haven't been able to soak in yet, then my office had our annual potluck and then Kevin and I helped a couple in our small group move into their first home along with the entire group. 

Helping one of the couples in our group move was so sweet. I'm not sure I can put into words how it all felt at the time. My heat was so full watching every one in our group selflessly give up their Friday evening and work tirelessly to get this couple into their home. I couldn't help but play photographer during the process in between moving boxes. It was just such a sweet moment in time. We brought every box, piece of furniture, accessory, etc, in and then we helped them unpack a bit. The men worked on assembling some of the furniture like their bed so they could go to sleep that night while the ladies unpacked the kitchen so they wouldn't have to eat out constantly. 

I think about these moments of sharing just normal life together and it brings a huge smile to my face. This is why Kevin and I made the jump to bring this group together. Encouraging each other in the faith is huge and absolutely the main event of the small group but just doing life together is pivotal. Our group has changed, grown and basically just blown us away in the last few months. It's been absolutely incredible to see relationships form and friendships build. Any one would do anything for any one. I know I speak for Kevin and I both when I say, our life is forever changed.

And side note: this couple moved onto the same street as Holly! Oh how this world gets smaller day by day. It was so fun to introduce them. I love having friends so close! 

If you've been tossing around the idea of taking the leap of faith to start a small group then DO IT! Your life will never be the same in the absolute best way.

  1. Such a special weekend! I'm so glad that y'all's small group has blossomed and truly become a blessing in both you and Kevin's lives. Such cherished memories!!


  2. So exciting! And one of the best thing about having a church family - it's sad to me when someone can't fathom that so many people would help - they can't think past paying for new boxes and hiring movers instead of sharing resources and teaming up. Congrats on their house!

  3. I know this was not the point of this post at all but I LOVE the drawing you made them! Would you consider doing custom work?

  4. What a blessing to be a part of such a wonderful group!!!

  5. such a special weekend. lovely!

  6. It's such a special time, getting to share life. Living in a house with 3 other couples at the moment and sharing life is pretty incredible!

  7. I wish someone would have photographed our moving day....but more importantly PLEASE make me a drawing like that!!! You have the pic of our house :D I will pay you love!!

    XO Samantha

I love that I'm getting to know more people near us and building relationships with those wonderful people. Now you and Kevin just need to move into our neighborhood and we will be all set ;)
