Waiting on Pins and Needles :)

What a horrible post for me to end on and not blog for two whole weeks....for those of you waiting on pins and needles (hahaha.....just kidding!) I'll give you the lowdown.

Basically, the company that my husband works for--the lovely store Tarjay, had given us an opportunity that we were sure was exactly what the Lord had for us. Matt was a highly recommended candidate for a position at a store in Charlotte, NC....right where we have been wanting to relocate. After a wonderful interview and beginning to look for houses (very bad idea on my part-I'm glad I didn't start packing like I wanted to), we got the news a week later (after waiting what seemed like years :)) that he was not selected for the job. This came as pretty hard news for us to hear. After some time talking with Matt and through prayer, we know that this obviously was not what God has for us at this time. All along we prayed for God's will for our lives, and clearly he answered that prayer. So, I will trust in his sovereign plan and know that it is far greater than my own. Even though it is hard sometime to understand why things happen the way they do, I'm so glad I can trust in him through everything.

So, that's an update for now. I have many more posts circulating in my head that will come later....I hope you all have a great Friday and weekend! :)
