A Year Later

We made it!

We faced the seemingly impossible and we survived! ha ha.

It's actually been a week past a year now. We've moved twice, been through a financial overhaul, been through the loss of two relatives (a grandmother, and uncle).  We thought we had a plan last summer, and a good one at that.  But thankfully, God has better plans than us, and we ended up in the right direction after all.  We are now, again, in a stage of waiting.  But, "it isn't a wait without the longing"...this longing and waiting period will make the MOVING part that much more awesome and amazing when it comes.  When we can see what was happening behind the scenes, and when that perfect timing comes, every single day will be worth it! And we can be full of faith that the LORD is just as excited to show us the answers...but He can't until it's TIME!

Isaiah 30:18

Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!

In the meantime, Corey has managed to work a full-time job (second shift), complete another year of his schooling (with a straight A record!), and be so impressive at work that he has been given an opportunity to move up, something that many he is working with haven't done in working there for much longer than he has!

I am so SO proud of him.  He has nothing but our best in mind!  I predicted it going into the entire "thing" last year, but after having lived through it for a year, I can say with certainty that I would do it all again over facing the loss of a pregnancy and repeat miscarriage again.  That broke my heart.  This broke up our routine, but our faith and family remains strong!

2 Corinthians 4:8-9

 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.

God is good, and we love being part of His plan.  Always!
