A few days ago I was blissfully living in Mrs. Have-My-Life-Planned-Out-Ville. I could see what our life was like in just a few short months and this had gone from hues and colors to now sharpening edges. I could see faces and activities. I even had planned to start some traditions for us so we wouldn't forget what we've left behind.
I'm just so sure that the entire time I made plans or wrote a future date down that God was just laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaughing at me.
Without going into detail, we've been thrown a major curve ball from the Big Guy upstairs.
Now that image is blurry. Nothing is set in stone. We're in the very early stages of this possibility. And I'm a resident of The-Great-Unknown-Scares-the-Crap-Outta-Me Town. And even if I get to go back to my white-picket fence image, I still can't let myself think it as a possibility for now because if it turns out that it isn't a possibility, I don't think I'll be able to handle it.
We've been here before. We dealt with many unknowns before we moved to Michigan. And now we're here again. Of course, it's completely out of left field and the details are falling into place so easily that it has to be God.
And if it happens, it'll be great. We will be great. It is a total adventure that I never even considered when I wrote out my resolutions earlier this year.
BUT. (This might be the biggest one of my life.)
There is also a part of this that will be really hard. This hard part is what I was most clear on in that image. And it's what I'd have to give up if this adventure comes to fruition.
And yes, I'll put on my big girl panties and deal...eventually.
My family has been doing nothing but telling me to put on my big girl panties.
And the hard part might not even be that hard if some things work out a certain way.
But for days, the thought of the hard part has me in tears in less than two hot seconds.
So for now, please pray for guidance for Brandon and I. I can't say anything more than that, but I do promise to update you as soon as I have a clear and crystal image.
