On August 16th my husband and I set out on a venture to our new home in AZ. Rather then go straight to AZ we thought it to be a much better idea to use this as an opportunity to travel some of the states on our way (or out of our way) there. The idea of this traveling adventure was yes, to see some of our own country but more so just to see some people that we both love.
The hardest thing about this trip was knowing that YES we were about to see a lot of people we care about but in doing so we were about to leave some people that we love very much and have been sharing our life with. It would be an understatement to say that it was very difficult to say goodbye. But we did it....we shared a few more days together and we did it. We said good bye or what I like to say "see ya later" and away we went.
You see, we moved to Lynchburg VA. after we got married because some of my very best friends live in that town and I wanted to share my life with them for a few more years before leaving the states again. Greg was going to go to a culinary school that was starting in the fall and it was the "perfect" plan. Well, if you too are living this great life in hopes to honor and glorify God with your life and to be obedient no matter the cost....(which I fail at time and again) you also know that many if not most of the time your plans seem to change. Well, that's exactly what happened. God told Greg to go to AZ and with a hesitant wife he was patient in the planning. But finally this stubborn girl let go of her fears and said yes.(that's a whole different blog)
So here we are. We are now in AZ. We have been here for about 3 weeks and I am more out of my comfort zone than possibly when I spent time in the Middle East. With that said I have a lot of free time on my hands. Time that I honestly don't know what to do with half of the time. So in the spirit of deciding its time to do all(or some) of the things that God had been telling me to do for A VERY LONG TIME. I decided it was time to start "that" Blog. A little late yes, but started none the less.
So for the next few blogs I will catch you up on some travels that we took as well as some lessons along the way. Be patient dear reader for I have a lot to say and well a lot of time to say it all. ;)
Love and Blessings
