Mixed Emotions

 Please excuse the smudges -- I was shooting out of a bug smattered window!

We are visiting our new duty station.  We have spent the entire day looking at homes to rent.  Some are great, and some are not so great.  None (yet) seem to be perfect for us.

Both CraftyGirl and I have been experiencing mixed emotions today.  Excited that we've got a new adventure ahead of us, but sad that moving forth with this adventure means leaving a home and people we love.

MotorMan and I have been praying for guidance to find the perfect house for our family, for a peace with this upcoming move, and the grace and understanding to be compassionate towards our children whom are confused, excited, scared, sad, and apprehensive.  

"Do not be afraid, your prayer has been heard."  Luke 1:13

And so, our search for a home and for peace in our new surroundings continues.  

The good news?

Our God is here.  He has gone before us.  He has a plan.  

"I have been with you wherever you have gone..."  1 Chronicles 17:8a

And so we're resting in that.

  1. Amen. Mixed feelings here as well. Excited for you guys but sad for you to be leaving us. Praying that when you walk into the right house you will "know." Love you guys.
