A New Season 

21 Jan

A new season has started and I’ve been warring with myself on just what I would say (or write) about it. 

For a long while I’ve been in a season of waiting. I have felt a little lost and unsure about the future. Not knowing what I wanted to do or what my purpose was (is). I’ve spent many sleepless nights praying and feeling unsure about things. My anxiety has been the worst in my whole life and I just didn’t understand when God was going to bring me out of this season.  Or what the purpose of it was for that matter. It had even gotten to the point where I chose to visit my doctor and begin taking anxiety medicine. On a side note, I fully believe that God can (and does) help us through modern medicine. And I’ve learned that it’s nothing to be ashamed of if you do have to take it. I simply chose to keep it to myself and my immediate family. 

Through these uncertainties I’ve come to realize (and appreciate) the constants that I do have in my life.

•My Savior; He remains a constant in my life. I am reminded daily of His grace and His peace. Two things I couldn’t live without.

•My husband; he loves me when I don’t deserve it and accepts me as I am. 

•My family; I couldn’t live without them. 

So here I am on the verge of entering into a new season…and you know what I feel? Nervous. Many may already know this, but Thursday was my last day at my job. I’ve been there three years and I have learned so much. Not just about my position, but about myself, my goals, and my dreams. Leaving a job can be scary. You become comfortable and complacent making any type of change utterly terrifying. As I walked out of the building of my job I felt so many emotions. Excitement about the new opportunity, nervous about the unknown, and hope for the future. But the best emotion of all was a complete peace. That’s how I knew this was the right decision. That is how I knew this was the door God was opening. 

See I spent a long time searching, praying, and waiting for God to open the door. Now that He has, I still don’t know what the future holds, but you know what I do know? The One who holds my future.

So if you are waiting too, don’t give up. God has plans far greater than we could imagine. He wants to give us a beautiful life. He is such a good God. 



Don’t give up.

“Let’s Build Some Dreams”

20 Aug

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29:11‬ ‭NIV‬‬

I have held tight to this verse for several years now. From graduating high school, through college, career, marriage, etc. I’ve never doubted that the Lord has great plans for my life and my family. 

So let me give you a little background…

Houston & I have been looking to buy land for about a year now. We knew the area we wanted to live in, but haven’t had much luck in finding the right place. We looked at a 3 acre plot six or so months ago. We really consider purchasing it, but something didn’t feel right about it. 

Then about 3 months ago, something was mentioned to us about 9+ acres being for sale in the exact area we wanted. We went to look at it and fell in love. There were some questions and reservations at first. Several aspects must be considered when buying land. Would it be a good location? Is it the right school district for our kids someday? Will we be close to family? 

So we took the plunge. Houston called the gentleman who owned the land and told him we were interested in the 9 acres. We told him how much we were willing to pay and he agreed that it was a fair price. Then came time to start the process of buying it. 

We got it surveyed, checked out interest rates at the local banks and credit union, prayed about it and moved forward with the process. 

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”‭‭–Romans‬ ‭8:28‬

During all this we found out that right after Houston called the owner, someone else called and offered to buy everything. Meaning the 9+ acres we wanted as well as two houses and another 3 acres. But since we called first, he wasn’t going to go back on his word to us. 

If we had waited any longer to call it would be possible that we wouldn’t get this land. But God had it all planned out. 

So it is now August 16th. It was finally time to sign the papers. The land would be ours. 

We signed the papers, made the down payment, and shook the hand of the gentleman who sold it to us. This is such a big deal! This land is the very first thing we have ever purchased together as husband and wife. And the fact that we signed the papers on the 6 1/2 year anniversary of when we started dating? Made it even sweeter. 

Can you tell we’re excited?? 😄❤️

 
We are so very blessed, excited, and happy! We cannot wait to see all the beautiful plans God has in store for us. He is a good, good Father! 


The second picture is the plot where we hope to build a house someday. I promise the pictures don’t do it justice! It’s so pretty out there!! We will be 10 minutes from town, 5 minutes from his parents, and 15 minutes from my family. So blessed & happy! ❤️

“Hey pretty girl let’s build some dreams, and a house on a piece of land; we’ll plant some roots and some apple trees, hey pretty girl let’s build some dreams..” -Hey Pretty Girl; Kip Moore

I’ve had that same lyric stuck in my head through this whole process; I wonder why? 😏

Now we start the clean up! Can’t wait! 😄🏡❤️
