Forward to the Future!

Today is a landmark more ways than one. As I drove to work this morning, I heard on the radio station that today is "Back to the Future Day", commemorating Marty McFly's journey forward in time to the year 2015 in the second movie of the trilogy.

Sure, that is a fun bit of movie trivia, but Wednesday, October 21, 2015 is far more significant for Rachel and me. In fact, the exact time on the DeLorean's flux capacitor was 4:29 PM. What was I doing today at 4:29 PM? I was signing papers to close on our new home!

It has been quite a journey, and so many people have worked so very hard to make it happen. Each one of you is more special than you will ever know.

After the closing, I went to our new home.. Mom got this picture of me letting myself in with the key for the first time.

We carried in a few cans of paint. Some people from my church will go over tomorrow to paint a few of the rooms a color other than white. On Saturday, a few others will help move some of the bigger pieces of furniture. Boxes of books and things like that will take awhile to move over, but it will eventually get done. And finally, we will be in our own home.

We may not be going "Back to the Future", but we are stepping forward into a new stage of the future that our Heavenly Father has in store for us. He is truly so good.
