We prayed for the Lord’s direction. Over and over and over again I prayed: “This needs to be your decision. We want to be where YOU want us to be.” I felt like I was prepared for either answer. But when the answer finally came, my first reaction was:
“Are you surrrrre about this one, Lord?!”
We are two born and bred Missourians. We proudly hail from the 816. However, we are also two people who LOVE a good adventure.
So when Scott was offered a job promotion this week, we were intrigued. And now it’s official. As of September 15, we will be two Midwesterners living in northern California. Yep…California!
Sacramento area, to be exact. Roseville, California to be even more exact.
Do we know what the precise plan is? We don’t. This is an extreme practice in patience…and both of us are failing at various times throughout the day. It all happened within the span of a week and a half. Then we were given three weeks to move. If you know me at all, you know I’m now up all night planning and making lists. The scratchpad next to our bed is scribbled all over with dark-of-the-night notes. We are a million emotions all at once.
So that’s the big adventure we are about to go on and we’d love to have you go along with us. We welcome any advice you have and we’ll take you along as we discover new places and people on the west coast. (Do we have to start saying ‘left coast’??) We’ll be a couple of hours from a lot of cool places: Lake Tahoe, the Redwood Forest, San Francisco, Reno – lots of things for you to do when you come for a visit! (wink*wink)
Meanwhile, let’s figure this thing out together, ok?! Let’s go!
Having lived all over this country I have found most place are filled with good people. Some of their “traditions” are strange and some you will find adopted for the rest of your life. You will find in life all place are “heaven” some just more than others- it is all up to you. Looking forward to sharing in your adventures. And remember God has a since of humor and you should too.
Your neighbor in life,
