home, moving on, etc.


Have you ever had a time in your life when absolutely everything was up-in-the-air? Right now is one of those times for me--but I'm not complaining.

My husband just graduated from Physician Assistant school, and I'm so very proud of him. Now we're in the job search process. We had certain areas in which we were focusing our search, but the PA job market, as we're learning, is slim right now. We've had to broaden our search just a bit. Okay, maybe more than just a bit. We've gone from looking on the West Coast to ummm, everywhere. This means that by the end of this year, I could be living...anywhere.

It's kind of exciting, but the truth is, I'm a little sad to leave behind our little house. It's the sweetest little 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom house with a terrific fenced-in back yard, complete with big trees, a strawberry patch and garden. I love our hardwood floors and the colors of our walls (which were painted by the previous owner). I love our city, too! And the longer I live here, the more I love it. And then there are the wonderful friends we've made here. I don't even want to think about leaving them behind. :(

But here's the exciting part. I was apprehensive when we moved away from home four years ago in order for my husband to go to school, but God worked out every.last.detail--like our walls being painted colors I would have chosen myself. I'm confident that wherever our family lands, God will do amazing things yet again. He's good to us, and He's good. This is exciting to me.

Everything is up-in-the-air right now and I'm just not sure if I should begin packing up our life here.

I know that it will all work out for the best. He has a way of doing that if we listen and it sounds like you know that. ;D

If you end up in Austin by chance I would be happy to show you around!

I know the feeling of up in the air, too. It was hard to know if and when to start packing. It's always like the Lord does and will work in the eleventh hour. (great encouragement, eh?)

If you end up in Southeastern, PA. I would love to meet you and show you around here as well. ;)

Blessings you and yours and I pray that the wait won't be too long and that your hubby will be blessed with a job!

Hi Jenny, what an exciting time, congratulations to your husband and you! I am sure God is holding you in his big hands and has something special in mind for you. Can't wait to see what that will be!

I always start with paring down and de-cluttering. That way when it comes time to pack there is much less to put into boxes. Great time for paring down the stuffed animal cache and organizing papers etc. You know where my vote would bring you!

I know that God has good plans for your family, and that He will bring you sweet friends wherever you end up. But I will certainly miss seeing you at MOPS, and the sweet encouragement that you share. I'm so glad we met! And we'll just have to follow each other on our blogs if you leave!
