Another Chapter

A title like this probably suited better for January 1st when you vow to make the coming year the best and most productive ever.  Good Lord willing, we are already expecting to start 2011 anew by moving to a new city.  Memphis to be exact.  On the 18th Ryan is going to be starting a new job as a weapons handler with Lockheed Martin, which is basically what Ryan did in the army as a combat engineer.  Ryan is so excited to have finally found a full time job! We are also only going to be a few hours away, which suits my family just fine, since previously we've lived 8-12 hours away.  Ryan will move down there ahead of us, and we will move after the new year once our lease is up.  The only thing is...Ryan needs a place to stay.  Of course we can't afford to pay rent on two different places, so we're hoping Ryan will be able to find just a room for rent for very little.  We've asked our church here to see if they have any connections with anyone in that area, and Ryan has even called FBC of Millington (which is where Lockheed Martin is actually located).  There are a few possibilities, but nothing solid as of yet.  We are doing our best to remain faithful the Lord will provide.  As far as we can tell, it is His will that Ryan has this job so I'm sure God will take care of temporary housing.

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.    - Matthew 6:25-34

I suppose housing is a small worry compared to the wonder of what the Lord has planned for us in this new chapter about to come about in our lives.

Good luck on the move! New places to discover, new things to see. =)

Thank you! I'm excited and nervous, but I'm mostly excited that my husband may have found his niche! :)
