Complicated!

Where do I even begin. Let's start with Jacob having the flu-regular,not swine-and Brad with a sinus infection-sick man...no fun!!! Then lets move onto Suzanne, my brothers wife to be who is pregnant and due Nov 18. She has been admitted to the hospital with high blood pressure-last I heard 209 over 109! They did an ultrasound and said the baby(Haylie) is weighing in at about 6 1/2 pounds and is in the 91st percentile, so if she has to be delivered early she should be o.k. They are trying to wait until Wed. when Suzanne will be 35 weeks and see what happens. We have another scheduled tryout for next weekend. It is in Fairview, TN not too far from Nashville, close to Franklin. The church is flying us there on Friday and we are coming home Monday. This is where the complicated part comes in. As I said in a previous post, I knew it would come down to living closer to family or being in our dream location-BEACH! We will not make a decision until after our tryout at Crestview(close to Destin,FL) on Nov. 1. Please pray that everything works out, and we make the right decision. I could really use some feedback on this subject. I am feeling a little leftout and am even wondering if any one out there is even reading this. Let me know!

We've been thinking aboutcha! I know how hard it is to be so far from home. I know that things are going to work out for you - sometimes it's just really hard to see past the here and now. ((((Hugs))))

You've been on my mind! Sorry I haven't sent you message lately. Both tryouts seem wonderful! My only concern is that you choose a congregation that believes and teaches the truth. I would love if ya'll were closer, like Nashville close. Destin sounds terrific :) I know that's your ideal place to live. Keep us posted about your tryouts and decision.

of course i read. and of course my vote will always be what brings yall closer to ME, not necessarily what might be best for yall! but at least i'm honest. i need to call you and tell you how lost i got in memphis this weekend. how on earth did yall live there? it's insane! i'm glad you at least have a choice of places to think about. better than one tryout that may or maynot fit!

Thanks guys!!! This is so aggravating. You never know how a congregation will be until you actually get there and the true colors come out. Brad told this congregation everything he believed and they were fine with it and then one day I guess decided to change their minds...who knows. At least maybe experience will play a part this time. We are really excited about going to Nashville this weekend and hope it all works out...that is if we can all get better(note it's church time and Brad is the only one there). And yes Becky Memphis is a nightmare, I tried to warn ya LOL! Love you guys and it would be GREAT to actually live within a days drive of friends!

My suggestion, pray, pray, pray. We've had situations where we really didn't know what to do so we constantly prayed and it all worked out for the best in the end. We will pray for you guys too! Good luck!
