More mega snowfall today.
More feeling oh-so-ready to move away.
And guess what?
Now I'm thinking Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Ha! See, I warned you not to take me seriously when I tell you where we're considering moving.
And yes, I read about the Tornado Alley thing. And the humidity thing (but at least they get less snow). But I also realize that God knows us better than we know ourselves so if Tulsa is His idea--all will be well. At least, eventually. I truly believe that and it's certainly what happened when we moved to Buffalo 20 years ago from Nevada.
Anyway. Tom's been invited to do an interview for a plant in Tulsa and at least--finally--this is one state not on my I Have Absolutely No Peace About Moving To These Few States list.
Whew. I would move to 40+ different states(!), but for probably 18 years Tom's hinted about moving to the bad-bad-no-way other states.(ThisIsOnlyATest...ThisIsOnlyATest.) Perhaps he's finally getting it. Or maybe I am. heh.
Besides, in Tulsa we'd be 100 miles closer to Naomi. :)
I know... Some of you think I'm bonkers to glibly consider moving to one state one day, another the next. But actually? I long to be oh-so-careful to follow where God is leading--not to where I think is best. So I must stay open, and with as few 'must haves' as possible. Besides, God knows our true must-haves, so basically, the 'just staying open thing' applies and illustrates my real level of trust.
It's one thing to say, "I'll follow God wherever He leads," but soooo another thing to actually live that way.
We're due for 7 - 10 inches of snow today. I choose 7. No, 3. heh.
Did you see the previews for the new movie, Identity Thief? Gah, it could have been such a brilliantly funny movie. I've loved Melissa McCarthy since Gilmore Girls and Jason Bateman since, well, forever. But noooo.... The writers had to 'crass it up'. Sigh. (Read a Christian review here--if you dare.)
Anyway... just for fun, I spent part of this morning rewriting that movie inside my head. Man, it would've been hilarious--and clean--had I made it. But oddly, no one asked me. :)
"Teach me to do your will,
for you are my God;
may your good Spirit
lead me on level ground." ... Psalm 143:10
