I have lived in the Northwest most all of my life. Different states, but still, the western part of America.
For the first time in my life, that is going to change.
I am moving from Idaho to Texas.
It still feels a little surreal to say. Texas.
I will have a whole new world opened up to me. Some exciting, some fascinating, some hard and maybe even scary.
I do not embrace the fact that I will live in the land of scorpions, snakes, and tarantulas.
But I do embrace the fact that I will live in the land of warm sunshine. And I’m so excited.
It feels as if a whole new world has opened up to me. Who knows what is around the corner? What friends I will meet. What opportunities will present themselves to me?
My girls are even excited and that is so important to me.
I’ve been praying for a very long time and I’ve already seen God in the details, in the moments along the way in this journey. His timing is evident – His hand being unveiled with flourish.
I can’t wait to see what He has up His sleeve for us.
I learned a long time ago that God lives in your heart never just in a certain place. You can find Him in every state and every country inside of His people.
I am so excited to meet His people in Texas. To love and be loved by new friends. To wonder how I ever lived life without knowing someone.
I’m excited to discover new things about myself and to discover new things with my children.
I’ve lived my life in Oregon. Nevada. Oregon again. Idaho. And now Texas.
I may have a lot to learn about living in a new land, but I will be doing it alongside of my family. Together on an adventure.
