We’ve completed week one in New England and continue to be awe-struck. I hope it doesn’t end any time soon, because it is such fun to find so many cool things waiting around each corner. I do love the honeymoon phase of new things, don’t you??
This entire adventure started last summer as a strong sense of God wanting us to be here. “Our” plan was maybe 2+ years down the road to explore moving or snow-birding (a term familiar to Floridians where folks in the north follow the best weather—-winter in Florida and summer in the North—FANTASTIC concept if you can pull it off, and a lot of people DO!). Anyway, this pull to New England was incredibly strong and just seemed so insanely out-of-the-blue that Hubby and I discussed it, prayed about it and basically explored the idea that if we are meant to do it, God will work out the details. Welp. He sure did. That gorgeous hike in August snowballed into a series of events that had me quit my job and traveling as a CT tech by January 1. I can’t even list every single thing that “magically” fell into place during this time. In spite of all my doubts, second-guessings, and fears—-there is NO doubt in my mind that God is orchestrating every move. I don’t know why, but I am currently enjoying every second. Perhaps one day we will know why He wants us here, but for now, we’re going with the flow.
A few things I have prayed for and He has blessed us with abundantly.:
Just for funsies, we are treated with extra surprises almost daily…..
Now, life is still life. Don’t get me wrong. We still have our daily ups and downs and worries about our kids, helping them through this transition and coaching them through life as well as our own concerns, family health concerns, friends with major life stuff, etc. Life doesn’t stop, but our perspective has changed and to continually see God work in our own lives, I have every faith that He has it ALL under control. I might not understand some if it, now or ever in this lifetime, but I do know without the shadow of a doubt, He IS in control and His plan is far better than anything I can ever hope for. Thanks be to God.
Until next time! Peace.
