We are so very excited that Melissa and Jason are going to be moving back to the midwest. They have both been accepted into the Master's program at Indiana University. Melissa's daddy is excited that they will be back in the area, but is not too excited about having IU students in the family. I think he will be OK with it until they become IU basketball or football fans. The Purdue fan in him cannot quite handle that idea. His often used expression about his Illini loving son is "I thought I raised you better than that..." apparently not!

It is a real blessing to have them be within a 4 hour drive instead of 14. They have secured a townhouse they like, rented from a Lincoln Christian College alum who knows Jason's Uncle Tim and Melissa's Aunt Margie. This was the first place they looked at--it was definately a God timed connection.

We had been praying and praying for God to reveal clearly which school He wanted them to attend and He did exactly that. We are thrilled for the kids and can't wait until summer when they get to come CLOSER TO HOME!

Grandpa and Grandma are very happy also. God has heard our prayers and has answered them!

Thanks for your comment on my blog post today at Ethos.

I would be honored if you would include me in your blogs worth reading. I have added your blog on my blogroll.

Thanks so much. We all must certainly get out and exercise our rights to vote. I am discouraged by how many people have told me they are not voting.
