The Winds of Change...

If you know me at all, then you most definitely know how desperately we have been trying to get back to Texas and how unhappy with our current situation I have been. In fact, my depression had gotten so bad that I recently had to double my dosage of Prozac to cope. For three and a half years we have faithfully prayed every day that God would open a door for us to go back home to Texas. His answer has always been no.

In the meantime, He blessed me with four friends out here that I cherish and value so much. He gave us a church home, He provided a rental house that we liked and could feel comfortable in, even though it wasn't ours, He blessed us with the opportunity to see so many things and places we otherwise would not have seen. James and I both agree that while our living in San Francisco has not been ideal, we have made memories and friends here that we would never trade.

That being said, I am pleased to announce that James has been offered and accepted a branch management position in Sugar Land, TX, where we will be moving in 3-4 weeks!!!!! I know that God's timing is perfect, and while it has been extremely difficult to remember that over the past few years, especially the past six months, I am confident that He has a very specific reason for moving us to Sugar Land now.

To my dear friends Melissa, Laura, Rosalyn and Lisa: How can I ever thank you for the tremendous gift you have given me over the past few years. I can truly say that God has used you without your knowing it. He put you in my life during this season because He knew YOU had something to give that I needed. I am a better person for knowing all four of you. You have touched me in ways I will never be able to properly put into words. Your faithful friendship has definitely saved my sanity over the past few years, and in many ways, saved my life. There were many dark days when your friendship and the knowledge that you were here for me was the only thing that sustained me. I love all four of you and I hope that I have touched your lives in some way, as you have touched mine.

Thank you to
everyone who has prayed our family home! Thank you, Jesus!!!!!!
