Well, life has some very big changes in store for us. Last fall things started to take a big downturn at my husband’s job and we felt that for our family and our future, it might be time to start looking elsewhere for employment. That meant needing to leave the area. We decided to start looking around and my husband planned to start applying for jobs. We left the rest to God and His plan for us. And God had plans! My husband applied for a job on a very late Sunday night and by the next morning had a call from a recruiter. We flew down for interviews and a visit one week later, and by the end of the following week, we had a signed job offer. Two and a half weeks. That was it. We were expecting the process to take several months. What a shock!
So, starting in in mid-February we will officially become Iowans. I don’t even know how to say that! :) Its going to be a good change, but a sad one. Our families live where we are now. And I have never lived farther than 45 minutes from my childhood home. But, Cedar Rapids is a beautiful area with wonderful housing and a focus on young families. We know how blessed we are to be presented with such an offer and oh, so grateful!
We could use your prayers for safe travels, for safe moves, for quick house sales, for making new friends, for finding a new church, for my husband to adjust quickly to his new job, for families that are sad that we are leaving, and for our sadness at leaving.
Be a little patient with me, for a little longer. I feel like I have been a giant, non-creative, stressed-out flake for so long. If I have not gotten back to you, not followed through on something, or have just been annoying, please forgive me!! I will post here as often as I can for the next month or so. I do have a few cards in my stash to share, as I love to share with you!
Thanks for letting me share the new journey that life is taking our family on!!
