Crazy! I know. I should let it go. It didn't happen. We didn't move. Now there is no job on the horizon. No reason to move. Nothing.
But guess what?!! We are moving. I know we are. The Lord has told me so. He hasn't told me when, but at this point, I believe that a year from now we will be thinking about it. Wouldn't that be crazy?? Write a post a year early? Nuts.
But now I believe what He has told me. I know He can do all things. I know if He wants us to have a specific job, we will have that job. If He wants us to live in a specific ward, we will live there. If He wants us to have more children and I am an old woman? We will have them. (I can write that because this blog may never see the light of day!) I love the freedom that comes with privacy! But musing, wise, I may as well write down my predictions for future posterity.
Well, let's see. I know I have dark days ahead. Hard days. Days that will take my breath away and perhaps my desire to continue going to church and to ignore my prayers and the Lord. They are on the horizon. I just don't know what they look like.
I know I have a nasty pregnancy on the horizon, and I turn 45 this week (the week I am writing). It will be ugly and difficult and hard. It may or may not be connected with my dark days. I kind of think they are two separate difficult things. But we will see.
I know moving south is on the horizon. When? I am not sure. At this point, I think in one year. Where? I do know that. I kind of know what it will look like. I think I know which ward and what school for the high school kiddos. Maybe the little guys too. (I actually put them on a waiting list for a school I think is the right one and the waiting list was like two years long. It may be that long before we actually make the move. Nuts, right? Yep, I know. But you just don't leave those kind of things undone when you feel the inspiration. I mean what is the worst that will happen? We won't go, they will call and I will tell them, never mind.) And, believe it or not, Drew will get that job. Because the Lord said so. So now we wait.
I was told that it wouldn't look like I thought it would, but the sea would part and then we would go and it would be fast. Which is why I was told so early, so I could work on things slowly because when the time for moving came, we wouldn't have time to deal with stupid things, like junk.
That is my report seven months after the initial thoughts of moving began and the interviewing process and all of it. I believe Him now. It will happen. I just don't know what the plan looks like.
And that is my report.
