I haven't put this on my other blog, but my little family of three is moving to PA. I have mixed feelings about this move. I can get excited, but mostly I am nervous and scared. Mainly we are moving because PA is beautiful and second because hopefully Shawn can get steady work. Also, my family is there. Got to love my family. I just don't want to leave here. There were so many firsts here and I worked so hard to get friends. Now we have to start all over again. I hate change. It scares me.
Also, when Shawn and I have an argument or he is driving me crazy I can just pick up the phone and call my friends or talk to them in person, but it will be different even if I can still pick up the phone and call them. They just won't be down the road or a few cities away. Or when Shawn isn't consistant at least I can count on them to understand because they know him. People in PA won't know him. Not even my family. Or when I am struggling with my insecurity they will be there, but people in PA really won't. I don't even think my family will.
The bright side will be that we won't have to celebrate holidays alone. That has been the hardest part about living in CA.

In other news Elizabeth is going to be 13 weeks on Tuesday. On her last doctors appt. She was 12 lbs 4 oz and 23 1/4 in long. She did great with her first set of shots. She is a total blessing from God and I am glad that she is my daughter.

Hi Natalie!

There have been two times in our marriage when I have been where you are...once when we moved here to Yucca Valley and then about 10 years ago. I can see why you would be nervous about the upcoming move.

But this I know...that during those two "seasons" of feeling alone, scared and nervous about the future...God was so faithful. He became my best friend when I didn't have any friends. He became my peace when I wasn't sure if Rande was making a good decision. My part was to just rest in Him. I'm not saying it was easy by any means, but looking back I can see that those seasons were times of tremendous growth in my relationship with the Lord.

Praying for you dear one...
