Back to Reality

We are back from Denver.  It is taking a bit of readjusting getting back into the routine of everyday life and having Jonathan be back at work, but we are slowly getting there.

I am trying to be content with where I am right now and trust God knows that we are here in Chicago for a reason, but sometimes I wonder where we will ultimately end up.  I fell in love with Colorado, the mountains, the love for nature and the beautiful weather.  I do love it here, I love the lake, the zoo, my Church family and the fall but sometimes I get set on having my children grow up where they can play in nature and not just at a park.  I am trusting God's plan for my life and know that He has us here for a reason and for this season in our life.

On a side note, the apartment is almost 100% done!  Just Jonathan and I's room is left but it may be a few days before I get to that because it is a bit overwhelming to go in there!  Once it is all set up I will get pics up of everything.

Meditating on this scripture this week. Jeremiah 29:11  For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Some more pictures from our vacation:


  1. Love your pics, Thiele. I'm so glad you got to go to Colorado ... it is definitely a great place. We're spending a week in the Colorado mountains in July ... wanna come visit? And ... we missed you.

  2. I may just have to sneak in your suitcase and come with you!! We missed you guys too and I am looking forward to catching up!
