When you think you have it all figured out, you find the life you want. God throws a curve ball at you and you head out on a new journey.
Now when we moved we hadn't sold our home. We tried for the 2 years that we lived in the great state of IL, but got no where. It was a long road and couldn't understand it. We tried our best to ignore the fact that we had a mortgage, and rent to pay every month; we just did it. We were loving IL, the parks, the events, the people THE CHURCH, our Church family! It was perfect. After two years of living this life and growing in our faith God decided it was time to bring us back home. So my husband got a Job offer close to where our house was that we just couldn't pass up. So we got baptized by Pastor Dave said our goodbyes and a week later we were heading back to our house. A house that was ours for 4 years before we left that never really felt like home. I was devastated to be back, but new that God has had a plan all along. So here we are back in our house.
Fast forward 2 years later and we are in present day. We are still in that same house, it is now our HOME. We know we want to move but I am finally happy here. We have two AMAZING kids that light up my life, and break me down. Moms get that! The most important thing here is that we are still strong family of faith. We still have not found our home church but we are determined to find the right place for us. But we have amazing friends, and we are closer to family now. God is Great and he always has a plan. We may not see that plan until we are far removed from the situation. It all makes sense to me know.
