In just 2 short weeks we are leaving. I'm emotionally overwhelmed this morning just thinking about God's goodness (and how undeserving I am of all this). It's huge! Of course we know that God has been at work in us and in these plans for months now. Every obstacle has been removed and a vast pathway has been revealed even better than what we could ever imagine or expect. We are experiencing a healthy dose of excitement and fear. We trust God for all things and we know it is his plan for us and not ours alone. We walk by faith and even though the future is uncertain, God is good and we are his people... so we continue to follow him and trust where he leads us.

This summer has been so amazing on so many levels. We prayed that God would remove all the obstacles holding us here, and he has. We never imagined our home would sell so fast, that our children would head out on their own, that our medical issues would be resolved, that we would be debt free, and every unspoken prayer would be answered. This gives us the peace that passes all understanding. We are experiencing really good days, ya know those days you just want to bottle and save. Anyone who knows us, knows that such moments in time are usually rare for us. We've struggled, really struggled with career changes, parenting, debt, and just daily living has been hard some days. We have stayed the course, trusted God and lived by our decisions. Today is finally the culmination of working God's Plan which we always refer to as Plan A. 

Where are we going? What has happened? Where are you moving? Well, we have not made a final decision as of today. Steve has given his notice at work. His last day will be Aug 31. He is finalizing a contract for a travel nursing position in an ER in Texas right now, and looks like AZ or NM in the fall/winter. We are leaving Deer Park on Sept 1. We are going on vacation til Sept 15, visiting my parents and just resting (at Disneyland).  We know this life is temporary and heaven is forever so we keep our eyes focused on the cross and we stay the course...
