To New Beginnings

We’ll be unpacking for quite some time, but Alicia and I have moved out of the apartment and into our house, a beautiful 1910s home at the opposite end of town from where we were. I wanted to move to Canada. Alicia wanted to move to Indianapolis or closer to it. Apparently the logical compromise was to stay right where we were. But, like I said, it’s a beautiful house–three bedrooms, 1.5 baths, two stories, and beautiful built in shelving and display cabinets, as well as a stained glass window.

Thanks to everyone who helped out!

We spent several hours Saturday with our parents, Alicia’s aunt and cousin, and my sister moving from the third floor of the apartment to our home. Things went much smoother than I had anticipated, even though we had several fewer people who were able to help move this time around. Notably absent were Shawn and Glen. Sure, they are thousands of miles away, but is that really an excuse? :)

Happy anniversary, Alicia. Thank you for a wonderful year!

Today is also Alicia’s and my one-year anniversary. It hardly seems like a year has passed. We don’t even have kids yet, and I’m already marvelling over how fast time is flying by. I don’t know if that’s a normal perception for someone my age, or if my outlook on time has been corrupted by the retail establishment that thinks winter holiday merchandise should be on the shelves in June or July. Anyway, the past year has been great. And I can only echo the sentiment of Proverbs 18:22, “Whoso hath found a wife hath found a good thing, and hath obtained favour from Jehovah” (Darby’s Translation).

I’ve also decided to take a different, simpler approach to the style of Timothy’s Burden. I may go back to the Sky style; I may not. I don’t really know yet. But I really like the parchment verse headers, as well as the overall clean feel of the site now. Let me know what you think works or doesn’t work about this style, if you want. :)
