So after getting somewhat settled in the townhouse in College Station, we spent our days trying to get acclimated and also praying a lot for our house in Friendswood to sell! The following is the rest of the month of September and October, and actually into November, just so you can peak into our moving experience and our first few days back in Aggieland. 🙂 Again, marathon post so hang in there haha!
AND in the middle of ALL of this….
I’ll leave you with this verse below. I read this in my Bible App this week and it hit my face like a ton of bricks. If you would have asked me last year where we would be at this point in time, I would of said in Friendswood of course, because we had plans to stay there long term. It never felt exactly right though to me, and I could never place my finger on it or understand what the solution would be to our lack of family time and Jacob’s hour and 15-20 minute commute each way… but we prayed about it, because we knew things needed to be better for our family. Jacob looked for jobs in Houston for over a year, and we continued to just feel kind of stuck. Feeling like we needed a change but having no idea what to do or feeling like, could we really make a change and take a plunge. When this job in College Station popped up out of no where, it was almost too good to be true and really shook us up a little and we were unsure if it was stable and something we could count on. Someone told us, “You know, a lot of people pray for things in their lives, but then they are unsure or afraid to take advantage of the opportunities to have their prayers answered because they are scared of one thing or another.” And when I heard those words, I knew for sure this is what we were meant to do at this point in our lives. Who knows how long we will be here, hopefully for a little while at least because moving is exhausting haha… but as long as we are here, we will be so ever thankful for our time together and the opportunity to grow as a family and slow down and live our lives together rather than rushing past each other during the day. God has plans for His children, things that our eyes have never seen and our minds have never even considered.
