Brad finally got to announce Wednesday night that we were leaving. That was actually a huge relief because we have been holding this in for a while. We have already sold our house, I know a major shocker! There was a girl a school looking and I secrectly told her the situation and told her she was more that welcome to look. She did and they made us an offer Sunday night. They have sold there home, but are moving in with her parents this weekend and we have set the closing date for Dec. 18. Now here's the prayer request!!! We #1 need a job. We have 1 tryout set for Nov. 1, but that is all for right now. The tryout is in Crestview, FL, 20 minutes north of Destin. That I know will also cause a dilemma. That is our dream spot to live, but at the same time, we were kinda wanting in the Nashville area so we could be closer to family and we could live close to my new niece who will be arriving in Nov. We do have lots of options in that area, but none have called yet. Crestview is only 5-6 hours from home, which is defifnitly closer than 15. Granted Crestview may not even offer a job, so I may be stressing over nothing and then really be stressing that we get nothing and become homeless on Dec. 18. Please pray that all works out. I know God will take care of us, he always has, but the OCDness in me wants it now. So if nothing else pray for me to be patient and wait for God to lead me down the right path!
Sorry it as been so long, but once school is back in session my life becomes consumed. School for the kiddos has been good so far. They are at different schools this year because the schools are split PK-1, 2-3, 4-6, Jr high , and high school. I was a little concerned how that was going to work, but so far so good. School for me has been a little different. JR high kids are definitely a new bred. Also I have so much more responsibility this year, but I have made it 2 weeks LOL! As for everything else in my life it is CRAZY as usual. We are struggling with the church and not really sure what to do next. They have all of a sudden decided that they believe in marriage, devorce, and remarriage and really don't want Brad to "hurt anybody's feelings" when he preaches. Well my opinion of that is if your feelings get hurt, your guilty! We also have a youth minister that is as liberal as they come and we have expressed our concern to the elders, but they do not seem to care. I know Brad won't make it here much longer, so just pray everything works out. We would like to be closer to family and friends, which when you're 15 hours away pretty much anything is closer. We will just have see what happens. I really don't want to move in the middle of the year, but I am not under a contract with the school so if we HAD to it wouldn't be too bad from that aspect. We also need somewhere we have a support system. We feel a little lonely here in the Lone Star State(now I know where that name came from LOL)! On to other news. The carseat law here was 6 years old or 36". Carley has been 36" since she was 5, so we took her out of her booster at about 5 1/2 and got rid of the booster seat. Well the law now states 8 years old or 4'9", so today we have to shop for 2 booster seats. One for my car and one for Brad's. I take Carley in the mornings and Brad picks her up in the afternoons, so we need 2. It is a good thing Jacob is 8, because he is only 45", so he is still too short but luckily meets the age requirerment. Sister was not a happy camper, but I talked it up and told her she could pick out a "cool looking carseat" and so far that has worked, but we will see when we get to the store today!
I am the wife of a gospel preacher and the mother to Jacob and Carley. I enjoy getting to be a stay at home mom, even though I stay busy all the time. I love to craft. Scrapbooking, card making, decorating, sewing, you name it, I'll try it. I strive to live everyday that God gives me, being the best wife and mother I know to be.
