It's been a LONG time... (Since my FIRST post....oh, no! :))
I think I'm better at reading other blogs than actually blogging! But I love the idea of having a little journal that Matt and I can have that we can look back on. And...it is a great way to stay connected with family and friends and keep them updated on our lives. So, all that to say, I will be better at updating from here on out! :)
Life has been really great lately. I have been feeling at peace with the Lord and refreshed by him more and more...and I know the reason for that is because I have been spending more time in his word. I feel so refreshed because for a while before this I felt so distant from God, and I know it was a result of my own heart in not spending time with him and being consumed by the world. It is amazing how the Holy Spirit just makes scripture come to life as if it is the first time ever reading it! I have been spending time in the Psalms lately and have really seen my focus be taken off of me and what I need and put towards Christ and praising him for WHO he is and WHAT he has done for me...We serve such an awesome God!
Matt and I also have been praying for God's will in a pretty huge area of our lives lately...MOVING from Tallahassee! We both really see that the Lord is doing a great work and it is exciting to see how it plays out. Matt put in for a transfer with Target and we could possibly be living in Charlotte, North Carolina in the near future! It could happen soon...or not for a while, and God could either shut or open the door but I am very excited about this possibility! As much as I am excited, I am also torn and sad because of what and who we could be leaving behind. The Lord has blessed us with an amazing church family who has come along side of us in a way I couldn't have even imagined. It makes me so sad to think that these people won't be there when we buy our first house or have our first sweet baby. But, I know that God will provide and I shouldn't worry about making friends or finding a church just yet. I know that He is in control and we just want to be following in his will.
Moving on from the subject of moving....I have actually come to find a sport that I really ENJOY....are ya'll ready? TENNIS! My very patient and sweet hubby and I have been going lately and it has really become a super fun and bonding experience! He is so sweet with me and doesn't get frustrated when I completely suck....but I really feel like since we've started I am making great progress which is awesome for me because I am not the most athletically inclined. The picture at the top is what I hope to look like soon! :)
Well....that is what is on my mind at the moment. I am excited about more blogging...soon, very soon, my friends! :) Happy Saturday!
