We have been in CO since July 1st....so really almost three months! It still feels new and strange to be here and yet we are finding times that we are really enjoying ourselves as well.
See this great picture? That is my new target to shop at.....the one closest to our home. It happens to be a super Target which makes for great one stop shopping.Restoring the Soul ministries, where Matt and I came last November and where God started this whole adventure.
When we first looked at CO as a place to live we were looking all over the state. God used people to guide us to the area we are in now and He already knew "my target" would be in this parking lot. He put up an alter for us so we would continue to remember the work He started and wants to continue. I am amazed at His attention to detail. God knows just what we need. So many times already I have been feeling discourage/why are we here, and I will drive into that parking lot, be reminded and renew.
So many updates and things to share.....how about all the things we are loving about CO:

I have been doing a Beth Moore study on Deuteronomy at the church we are attending and have been finding it speak to our situation. Especially Deut 6:23 "And He brought us out from there, that He might bring us in and give us the land He swore to give to our fathers." Looking forward to the process of being "brought in". :)
