More Change

My husband and I like to believe that we are a bit adventurous and a "roll with it" kind of couple. We love new starts and new journeys and it looks like we are going to be served up another one. We learned today that it looks very likely that we will be moving again in the very near future. Yep, you read that right! Yep, we did just move and still have 3 garages and a closet still full of unpacked boxes (I may just leave them boxed up for the next move). The details are all very fuzzy at this point. We may be moving in the very near future, but it is expected to happen for sure within this coming year. We've REALLY enjoyed Southern CA and have created some fantastic memories as a family.

I do feel badly for our children. We are asking a lot of them to have their lives turned upside down so often but hopefully it will result in raising "roll with it, adventurous" children as well.

I'm still letting the news sink in a bit. It's a mixture of surprise with just a bit of excitement (and sadness about saying goodbye to friends again). I'm trying to keep in mind the verse I heard on the radio just this morning:

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

The last time God brought us to a place like this He had some really wonderful surprises in store for us. So we will not fear this change but begin thanking God right now, even before we have all the details, for what He plans to do with us. Won't it be exciting to learn where we will be next?

More details to follow when this news has sunk in a little more!

Really? I feel as if I am losing a great friend even though we have only been able to get together one time.

That verse has been rolling over and over in my mind as well. I will pray that you find a place of peace and that everything falls into place if the move is what God shows you.

Love ya,
