Hubby got this in the mail today...
We have been awaiting for it's arrival since October.
While moving probably won't happen... this year... it's nice to have choices.
We've always talked about moving out of state but the thought of moving away from family is hard.
Right now things are fairly flexible with jobs and housing, it would be a fairly simple time to move.
Sometimes it feels like we're going nuts trying to make good decisions for our future. My sis mailed me this book,
It's funny and encouraging and right now is helping me feel at peace about our current situation, as well as future possibilities. This verse used in the book has stuck in my head and been my "theme" for awhile now:
Do Not Worry
25“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? 26Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
28“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
The verse always reminds me of the camp song "Seek Ye First", which was always one of my favorites. When I've felt overwhelmed by decisions it is helpful to repeat the verse to myself. When we put God first, "all these things will be given to you".
Whether Colorado or Kansas, it is nice to have choices, and I will be content with that.
