How things change in a year. On March 1, 2009 Chris and I moved to Nashville. It was just the two of us. There was no little dude in my belly, we didn't have a home, and we only knew 4 people. Today there are 3 of us. We have a beautiful home and are making friends that we know will be part of lives forever.
We knew God wanted us here. We waited for what we believed was God's timing. We knew it was going to be tough and that we would miss our family and friends, but knowing that God wanted this for us made it easier. We have come a long way in putting all our trust in Him. It was hard at first, trying to differentiate what we thought God wanted for us and what He really wanted for us. Make sense?
Josiah is such an incredible blessing to us. We are so honored that God has given him to us to love unconditionally and teach him the Truth. We realize how lucky we are to have him. So many of our friends have been trying for months, some years, to get pregnant. We pray for them and that God gives them what they desire. Children truly are a blessing and a miracle. Just 2 weeks into this and we know our lives have changed forever, in the best way possible.
We are praying that this year Chris gets a publishing deal and that he can write from home so he can spend more time with Josiah (and me). I know he misses him terribly when he leaves every morning to go earn a living for our family of 3. I am so thankful Chris does that for us. So that I can stay home and be with Josiah all the time. I am so blessed.
