More pictures. Less words. Just the fluff of life to help me keep track of it all.
Now that we’ve been in our new house a few weeks and finally have internet, it’s time to play catch up. Life is good in Portland (more on that in another post) but before getting here, we wrapped things up in Olympia. Here are some pics from our last month or so in Olympia:
After living at the Grace House, as its called, for 5 or so months, it ended just like that. The Grace House is a house owned by Grace Covenant Church next door, housing church staff or others. Because of the always transient nature of it’s inhabitants, the house is an open space.
People move in and out as the seasons of their life change, friends breeze through the door without knocking (for the most part…Sarah), many meals are shared, deep conversations are fostered and unique communities are formed over and over again as the make-up of it’s regulars change. I’m grateful for the ways we were taken in, for the friendships formed and the ways we could take part in this community life during a unique season in our lives. We were so graciously welcomed in by those living and frequenting there, becoming a small part of the long story of many who have lived there. Thanks to all who had a part in making us feel at home.
And now after 2 or so years of sharing spaces with others, we are back in our own space. Let’s make this house into a home! We’re working on it anyway.
