What a process!  I have to admit I am fairly apprehensive about the whole thing.  We have had two garage sales and have made more money than either one of us anticipated, but it's still a trying process.

Matt leaves on Monday for the Seattle area.  He will be gone for a week and I will miss him terribly.  My parents are coming and they were supposed to come tomorrow but a death in the family is pushing that back a bit.  I will miss my mom's cousin, she was a wonderful woman who showed God's light to all who encountered her.  She was a perfect, what I call 50's housewife.   She was a good cook, always had a clean and neat home, and she was very encouraging to those she encountered.  I'm thankful that she knew Jesus and claimed Him as her Savior.  I know that I will meet her again, I know that she is with my grandparents and that she gets to meet my son.  I look forward to the day when I too get to see my grandparents again and get to meet my son. 

Thank you for the legacy you left behind, thank you for allowing me to care for you while you were in the hospital 8 years ago, and thank you for being the amazing woman that you were!

As I am feeling apphrehensive about moving I am claiming this promise from God:

'Fear no, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.  When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.  For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.'
Isaiah 43:1-3

What a promise!  Once you are held in the palm of God's hand, you cannot be taken away!  God knew me before I was even created, He knew the path my life would take, He knew the pain I would feel in the loss of our son, He knew that I would stop talking to Him during that time, and He knew the exact right time to bring us another baby to love.  I pray that I get to meet this baby and raise this baby in 7 short months!

Here is what's happening in my life right now

We're moving!  This is how God's hand was involved the entire time:

Last fall Matt applied for a position out in the Washington area but they filled the position right away so we just kept on keeping on.  About 3 weeks ago the manager out there called Matt and asked if he would like to interview for the position out there.  The interview lasted 2 hours!

Matt of course kept his manager up to speed on what was happening and she kindly wrote Matt a letter of recommendation!  Matt's regional manager could have put a stop the whole thing saying that he wouldn't give up Matt up...but he also wrote Matt a letter of recommendation!  A week after the first interview Matt had a second interview and was given the thumbs up. 

When we first heard about this position we asked God to guide us and open doors if He wanted us to be there and to close doors if we weren't meant to be there.  We truly believe this is where God is leading us and where He wants us.

I'm both excited and scared for this new chapter in our lives but I know without a doubt that God will always provide for us and He will never lead us somewhere that He doesn't want us!
