Completing the move

I have been in and out of this blog of late looking over past writings and trying to justify why I had not written in a while.  I told myself it was due to several factors – that when I had something to write I wrote it on the Women’s Ministry Blog I ran, or that there was so little happening in my life that I had nothing to contribute.  But…none of that was especially true.  Life has been stressful and I let this go.  It is simple and easy to understand.  The stress of the last year has been overwhelming and many days I felt like I was barely holding it together.  My infrequent trips to this blog were brief and small.  But baby do I feel like getting back in it!

So what has been happening?

  • I traveled – to Texas and California to see my sister and best friend respectively.  It was a wonderful 10 days of relaxing and stressing and walking and driving and keeping up.   It felt like normal peoples lives.  I loved it.  A lot of great conversation and a lot of laughs…not to mention some time with the 2 munchkins I love.
  • I left my church – I wrote about it on the Women’s Blog and if you are interested in the why’s you can read about it here.  It was a big decision and it has been a lot harder emotionally than I imagined.  Technically I am still on the rolls…and I have one more Sunday to sing there.  And then officially I am gone.
  • I visited new churches – and have a few more to visit still.  I think I am headed in a path for now – but if I have learned anything in this process is never try to anticipate what God will call you to.  Where I am now, may not be where I end up.  I am trying to enjoy the process.
  • I realized how unhappy I am with certain parts of my life and am trying to make changes.  Little by little.
  • I have been working out with my trainer each week and now have decided to try my first 5K next month.  Part of me thinks I have lost my mind about this.
  • Work is in a “slower” period which does not mean slow…just SLOWER.  It will not be long before we are back to the rush.
The moving parts of my life right now are difficult and I want to resolve some of them.  I want them completed.  But – I think God is really trying to get me to enjoy the journey.  Enjoy the movement.  Rest only in the knowledge that He has got it all covered.
