So, when I wrote a few days ago, I told you that we have officially settled into this “family of 4 thing”. While that is 100% true, there may be a bit more to the story.
I’d say we’re about 50/50 as to how many people actually know the “more” part. So let’s just make this social media official:
Our family moved to Georgia!
The gabby girl, talk forever and ever, want to share every little detail, side of me is struggling to figure out how to share what is more than likely TMI (too much information) for one blog post. To settle this side of me and help me rest better at night knowing that now we know that you know…(see I’m telling you it can get out of control quick) I’ve decided a bulleted list is the best plan of attack.
*In our wedding vows we said, “Yes Lord, we are willing to go wherever and whenever you call…”
*ONE year later that meant a plane ride to begin life in Haiti!
*THREE years later we were back on U.S. soil serving with Crossings, a ministry we love.
*ONE and a half years after working with Crossings Trey was offered a position to serve alongside the North American Mission Board (NAMB).
Please recall THE WHEREVER & WHENEVER COMMITMENT…
*TEN Days ago we left our home in Western Ky and moved in with Yaya & Pops (Salter grandparents who live in GA!) while we house hunt and seek out our new community!
*EIGHT Days ago Trey had his first day at NAMB!
*Yes, your math is correct, that is 4 moves in 6 years of marriage.
*No, it is not in our “plans” to keep this pattern over the next 6 years, BUT we are keeping all our plans in pencil.
*Yes, I will always consider myself a KY girl but a little GA peach thrown in cannot hurt.
*Yes, packing, goodbyes, church searching, house hunting, building a new community…has its challenges. I don’t recommend doing it “just for fun.”
*Yes, we have gracious family to open their doors to us as we seek to settle, even if that means a lot of extra noise and even some throw-up our first night…
Shew, I feel better already! Thank you blog therapy.
And, thank you sweet friends for caring enough to read this post. It’s in these times of transition we are reminded how blessed we are.
Blessed by the Lord’s provision. Blessed to see the Lord’s faithfulness in fulfilling the desires He places in our hearts. Blessed to abide in Him and find that life is never dull…or predictable. And finally, blessed that our family of 4 can rest well at night knowing He cares for us.
Over & out from the peachy state of GEORGIA!
