The Ristow girls with the new owners, Amy and their dog Zepplin.
It was one year ago today that we handed the keys to our beloved home over to its new owners. Tears burned my eyes as we strolled through the empty rooms and down memory lane one last time. A small sob escaped from my lips and echoed throughout the halls. It was time to go, time to close the chapter.
As we drove away from our home for the last time, Steve turned on the radio just as Colton Dixon’s song “More of You” began to play:
We’ve listened to that song many times since then, and each time I find myself wishing that the lyrics were as easy to live out as they are to sing.
Please God, let there be more of You and less of us, and may we continue to experience YOU as we seek to build Your kingdom instead of our own.
