where in the world are the connollys?!?!

HERE. We're right here! 
And we're settled. Not quite in Boston, but not too far either. 

The short story is, about a month ago - we started asking each other and asking the Lord what it would be like to take a breather. To take a period of six months or more or less, or who knows how long, and keep fundraising towards planting a church in Boston- but live a normal life in the midst of it. What if we planted our family in a church body, in a community of friends, and kept walking towards the same goal - but not in the same nomadic way we had been. Would that work? We sort of gave ourselves a few days in a city we had on our hearts to see if it worked out, and the Lord just sort of blew us away. In a matter of days, He provided a great job for Nick and a great little house of us to live in - in Columbia, SC - the city where we went to college. 

So we're here! 
We don't have the interwebs at our house just yet, but this is probably a good thing since I'm spending much much time explaining to our children that this is OUR house, and we won't leave in two weeks. :) I'm also spending much time trying to fix it up and decorate it in an inexpensive, temporary sort of sense - so I'll keep you updated on that. And of course, there will be a great deal of writing in this little season of rest. I'm putting my big girl cleaning gloves on and rustling around the muck in my heart during this rest season. I want to get to Boston in fighting condition, rested and ready to stand with my husband. In the meantime, I will be blogging about the joys of Columbia and the sweet sense of breathing deeply and calmly for the first time in a while.

I have been wondering what's going on with you guys :) I think that taking some time to rest before the big move is a great idea. Best wishes!!

I NEED TO SEE YOU! Let's plan a park date when it isn't 50 degrees outside, go ahead and laugh your little Seattle heart out at the statement but the southern girl in me says it's too cold.

Excited about this season of rest for you and your family. How wonderful. I know it is much needed. Can't wait to see pictures of the house and such.
