My life has made an unpredicted full circle. Many who follow my blog know I've moved around the country abit after my husband lost his job in 2007. All this moving wasn't my plan.
It's called survival.
We moved to Texas because neither of us could find a job in Florida that would support our basic needs. We both worked part time at jobs we hated and our savings was nearly gone. So we packed our belongings and made for Austin Texas--a place we'd never seen.
It was a long year. Bad job, bad hours, and overall a bad life. I was ready to go home, pick up where we left off in 2001. So in 2012, we packed our belongings, made the cross-country trip to PA and started over again.
So we thought. After starting to build a home with our remaining reserves, a long bitter winter struck. No work in the construction industry. When my husband got the chance to start over in Florida, he jumped. I didn't quite jump but hey, I like to eat. We packed a third of our belongings, and headed south in the middle of the winter to another unfamiliar town.
I wish I knew how long I'd be here. I wish I knew what will happen to my unfinished home in PA. I wish I knew why I ended up in Florida once again.
For now, I'm going with it. Trusting each day. Being open to new friends and opportunities. Writing. Reading. Saving to finish my house. Praying.
My blog might take a few detours and circles in the coming months. I'd like to continue to journal this road God has me on so please be patient with me while I do.
This much I know. It's no accident why I'm sitting in Florida. It was no accident that my husband lost his very good job. It was no accident why we started to build a home and had to leave PA. It's no accident that I'm back in Sunday School and attending a woman's Bible Study again.
God can turn anything around.
