Within the last few weeks we have moved to Barnesville, Ohio in the Walton Retirement Home. The manner in which we made the connections to Walton certainly seem like true leadings. The time from preliminary inquiry to final decision was less than a month. We plan to make connections with Olney Friends School which is adjacent to Walton and to Stillwater Friends Meeting in Ohio Yearly Meeting Conservative.
There is still a major "cloud of darkness" which persists in my life, but it is with trust that we move forward with new surroundings. Walton is certainly simple by the standards of many Friends retirement places but we appreciate the simplicity and quietness which also provides an affordable place to live.
We have been spending a good deal of time in settling into our new location but I am feeling a renewed sense of involvement with Friends and my own Search. I hope to write a few posts from time to time.
