I've got to say...

God is good.

I'm just feeling so in awe of Him these past few days. The more I know about Him - the better I find He is. To alot of people, that may sound trite & silly, but to me it is so refreshing. I mean, I just can't get over Him. He took me - the worst person I know, all my sin & shame and decided that I was not only worth saving - dying for, but also worth using for His glory.

The next few months are going to be scary - but so so so so exciting. In general, I feel like the next few weeks are going to be some of the best of my life. So much time with family - Nick & Elias, and extended family. Mosaic's Womens Retreat at the end of this month, selling our first home... meeting with people to talk about New Beginnings, Elias' first Christmas... a week's vacation in Charleston with my favorite people (minus Nick who will be driving cross country) before we move. We really could not ask for more.

And then there's New Beginnings - a few months ago, I was truly at my wit's end. I knew I loved being a mother, but I hated doing it the way I was... stressed out, missing my husband, feeling paralyzed in ministry & my walk with the Lord. I just felt like giving up and so, in my heart, I did. I told the Lord that I couldn't figure out how to live - how to serve Him, how to be a good mom while loving on women and supporting my husband all at once. And now - this.

I've been focusing so much on the actual move & raising support that I keep forgetting & re-remembering what we're going to be doing. Then... I'm in awe. I can't believe what I'm about to be apart of, what my JOB is going to be. So - thanks God. I just can't believe how great You are. I don't think I'll ever get it.
