"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;

I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly."

Well, we're moving.  My stellar husband is taking the next step up with his job.  He is a very gifted man with a strong work ethic.  This leads to us being pushed on, even if we don't necessarily want to be pushed.  My first reaction with this possible move was "No!"  As time went on and God worked on my heart, it changed.  We believe that God has great things for us, wherever that may be.  We believe the things that we want for our life are not necessarily the things that God wants for our life.  We believe that Christians should be in positions of influence in our world, doing the best they can for God's glory. 

So, we are going to ride this next part of the journey with excitement.  This was not an easy decision as we will dearly miss our church, homeschool community, and close family.  This will always be our home. 

Where are we going?  Lincoln, Nebraska.  It is not too far away, relatively speaking.  Mark officially started the beginning of October.  Our present close date for our new house is December 1, but that may be moved up.  Until then, we are here, there, and everywhere. 

Am I stressed?  Yes.  Am I excited?  Yes.  We are leaving Hawkeye territory to join Cornhusker land.  Lydia mistakenly calls them the Corndogs.  We are not correcting her.
