I can’t believe we are moving in three weeks! It is so surreal. I’m leaving friends. I am leaving where Josh and I started a life together. I’m leaving where our children were born. It’s crazy to think that we will be starting all over. I am really sad, but also really excited! We have made some amazing friends while living in Austin. I am proud of the life that we had built. We started from scratch together. It’s time to move on. It’s time to move to different things and to live out our dreams.
I laid in bed last night, shocked that everything is falling into place. Shocked? I should have expected that. I should have expected that if this is what God wants me to do that he would make it work. I never thought that Josh wouldn’t have a job for two months before we moved. Guess what! We prayed for that. We prayed for down time before we hit the ground running planting a church and learning the culture of a new city. God answered. Not the way I would have planned it, but we are getting two months as a family. This is a sweet time. We have been doing so much together and I will miss it.
Also, we got an apartment! We were having such a hard time finding something without a job, but our friend had a friend who was praying for someone to rent their apartment and we didn’t know. What?! We are answers to each others prayers. They needed someone to rent their apartment next month and we needed a place to live next month. Timing is perfect. God has big plans for Tampa and I am so excited to be a part of it!
Isn’t Tampa beautiful?
