Remember how I've said 80 times that Tom and I must get out of here? That winters are making us bonkers? That we've lived in New York for 20 years and now it's time to leave?
Well, forget that.
Tom's been hired for a dream job, something he's wanted for years, and it's local. It's not a forever job, but he doesn't need one of those right now. He's pretty excited.
So we're staying put.
And you know? I'm fine with that. When we discussed this, I felt terrific peace--perhaps mostly because of moving-avoidance, ok. But I'm bigtime into following peace, even if it leads me right back where I am.
Peace has, so far, never led me wrong, especially an 180 degree turnaround one like this, one so strange that it looks suspiciously like something God would do.
So now what? Now I need to receive more grace for dealing with winter, with staring out our windows and seeing only a frozen, dead natural world for one-third of the year. I need to stay on the Obedience To God Track where Life is never dull and far away from complaining, whose track always leads to wrecks.
Uncomfortable times require receiving more grace and spending more time with God. Amazing cures, those. I remember that, yearly, I'd get cabin fever by January 3rd(!), but now it doesn't hit until February's end. A grace change, for which I'm grateful.
So there you go. I warned you not to get all hyped-up about our possibly moving again, not to let certain control issues spill over. heh. I really did. God has the most amazing sense of humor and I just love it... and Him. :)
And lest this sound rather anti-climatic, I'll tell you tomorrow about the huge changes Tom's new job will bring for us both.
"Do everything without complaining or arguing..." ... Philippians 2:14
"Nor should we complain as some of them did, and were killed by the destroyer" ... 1 Corinthians 10:10.
