Well, world… We have some news… We’re… MOVING!
Like, for real moving. Not just houses. Not just cities. We’re moving STATES. We’re moving TIME ZONES. Mike accepted a position in Illinois!! 🎉🥳😁💛
Before you get all concerned… We’re moving to rural Illinois. Very slow paced. Lots of corn and soy beans. 🌽 *Insert crazy look here* We’ve gotten PLENTY of those reactions.
Remember last summer we drove to Iowa? We ooohed and aaahed about our trip? About the things we saw? About the Midwest? About how it just felt like home?
Well, we weren’t kidding. We have felt the calling to go back since then. We knew the Lord was planning something for us, we just weren’t sure what. We weren’t sure when. We weren’t sure how. Well, this has been answered.
We couldn’t be more excited. I’m not even kidding. Before this whole process, we made a list of everything we desired for our family, for a new job, for a new location, for everything. Well, every single thing on our list is in Illinois. Every. Single. One. Even my secret “You’re Ridiculous Krista, Don’t Put That on the List” list was fulfilled. 😲
When God delivers, He DELIVERS. Seriously. We have been in this refinement season for 10 months. TEN months. TEN months of waiting. TEN months of self improvement. TEN months of building our faith. That’s really not as long as some, but for us.. It was hard. This season of ours is far from over. However, it just got a little more exciting. A little more complete. 💚
What that means for us… We’re moving, SOON. We’re moving at the end of the month/early October. We’re selling the house. We’re putting our faith into action. (thanks to my friend Krista for the term)
Will it be hard to leave? Yes. I’ve built such a wonderful community here. I’ve learned so much here. I accepted my first “big kid” teaching job. I had my babies here. Tri-Cities will always have a place that feels like home and familiar.
On the other hand, when God is behind you and leading you to the unknown, there is such a peace and calming to it all. I just know this is what we’re supposed to do. No question. 💚💛🧡
An oldie, but goodie post.
With honest intentions,
