Where will we be?

I feel like right now in our lives, we are in a transitional period. Both Jared and I just changed jobs recently (Jared more than me), and my bachelors is coming to a close (come faster April). We're at one of the many crossroads that are going to shape the rest of our lives. Is it time for children? Should we join the military? Should we move or stay in this apartment for a while longer? It is time for a drastic hair change? Wait, that last one doesn't qualify.

It's like choosing which college to go to all over again. Each big decision is going to have permanent effects on us in every dimension of our lives. Scary? Yes. Worried? Trying not to be. I know we'll be guided in our decisions, even if we don't necessarily ask or pray for that answer specifically. It's just now the waiting game. And if you know me at all, you know I loathe waiting. Once I make a decision to do something, I make it happen. And if it doesn't happen right away I lose interest. Bad habit? Yes. I'm working on it.

But as we play the waiting game, I can't help but wonder where we will be in our lives in just a short eight to nine months. Will our family grow? Will we join the military? Be in grad school? Will we even still be living in the state? It's so hard to mentally process what is next in store for us. All I've known for the past sixteen years is steady school. What will it be like to not have that obligation anymore?

I have a feeling it will be nice. Because we'll have more time to do this,


and this.

The Lord takes you where He needs you. I never imagined BJ and I would move out of state... but it's where a job took us. You will get it figured out. It is a big step, but an awesome one. :) Being all graduated and settled is a huge blessing.
