Steps Towards Home

It's been really, really difficult not to "spill the beans" so to speak until all our family has been notified, but the news is out there now!  Mike and I have found ourselves at yet another crossroads in life.  Trying to discern whether our move to Canada was to be a permanent one, or was it a temporary solution to an emergency situation. Notice I didn't say "decide"... This is because for the first time in our married life we are letting the Spirit lead the way with regards to another move.  This may be hard to grasp without spiritual eyes and ears, but we feel the calling for us to put down roots for our family in a specific place. (drum roll please!!)

Within the next couple of months (before Christmas) The Burnett Bunch will be moving back to Abilene, Texas!  While we will definitely miss The Farm, Grandpa & Grandma, Uncle Blair and Auntie Danielle, and Auntie Jill we know that great things are waiting for us there.  Hopefully our plan will be executed in real life as effectively as it is in my mind, but I am hoping that every summer we can have an extended visit in Alberta (3-4 weeks) and every winter Grandma & Grandpa can come and visit Texas for as long as they like.  This way we are guaranteed to see each other twice a year and not feel too separated.

Our hearts yearn to be part of what God is doing in and through Champions Church, and the Mansion, as well as in the hearts of our church family there!  We are so excited to put down ROOTS and build a HOME and LEGACY for our family.  So look for more updates about our journey soon!  We are praying for a great rental property right now, that will be in close proximity to the church, in a safe neighborhood, affordable, and clean and somewhat updated.  We can't wait to see y'all soon!
