I love it here. Life couldn't be better really. I don't take it for granted that we are blessed...beyond measure. Everything here is perfect...our home, church, family, schools, town, etc. So why would we even consider moving? Simply because we want to be open to His plans and purposes for our life and for the lives of our kids. We don't want to set anchor anywhere but in Christ alone. We don't want our plans and dreams to get in the way of His. So, we are praying about moving to the east coast. Aaron's company loves him and has offered him an amazing teaching position there that would suit him in so many ways. Could this be a part of God's plan for us? Does He want to use us somewhere else for His glory and for His good? What about the kids? How would they do that far away? Could we use this time to teach them about the sovereign plans of God and having a willing heart to serve Him no matter the cost?
Everyone around here is grumpy today...especially me. I take to the heart the words I read long ago..."wherever you are, be all there." That's really hard to put into practice when you feel like life is on the brink of being uprooted. "Peace I give to you..." "Come and follow Me.." "Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.." "Plans for peace and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope." Amen.
