We just moved from the western side of Akron to the wonderful house we purchased in Cuyahoga Falls, OH. We had been renting from missionary friends for several years. The past 2 – 3 weeks has been a real adventure, because on top of our move a week ago, on this past Friday, our son Jamie and his family moved to Lexington, KY where he has a new job.
The house is a bit smaller than we would have liked but it is a wonderful gift from the Lord. We had been praying for and seeking the right house to buy and as we considered this one, God changed our hearts to look at it for what is has – not what it’s missing! It is bright and airy and on a half-acre, in a wonderful location. We are on the upper edge of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Better still we are ideally located close to the homes of 2 of our sons and their families here!
Our son Michael has done a marvelous job in the house. We were able to hire him to do the painting, carpet removal, sanding and staining all the hardwood floors, and painting the trim. He does such quality work! Donna has chosen such special colors for everything. What a joy it is to see her so thrilled with how the house looks. It’s also so wonderful to be able to hang once again the many wonderful paintings, prints and pictures we’ve had in storage.
Now it is simply the adventure of getting everything unpacked and sorted – and determining what to do with the stuff we’ve accumulated. What an adventure!
