We are Bound for God's Country!

This pic was taken the day we moved into our home in 2004

We are moving to Jonesboro!
Rand accepted a new job today in God's Country!

We are bittersweet about the transition, yet so excited about what God has planned for us as we prepare to start over in a new place. There are many things that will be hard to leave, but leaving my job is going to be the hardest part of the move. I love it but I am not the bread winner. I know God will give me a job that will allow me to use my talents and abilities. I just hope it is sooner than later. I will work here until they replace me or I find a new job, whichever comes first.

We are waiting on the relocation package to come in the mail and then we will move forward. We are so very excited about not having to pack a thing or lift a finger in the move. We are also thrilled that they buy our house if we can't sell it in 90 days and they pay the closing costs on our new one. Rand even heard they will put us in an apt if we have to turn the house over before we find a new one.

God has truly taken care of my sweet Rand and provided not only what he needed but the job he has wanted for two years. He will be going from cotton to soybeans. I think he is excited to have a fresh start after being in such an insane working environment the past few years. I think back on how God provided this very job for Randall and it makes me grin real big. I would tell you the full story but you don't really care, you may already know it or you wouldn't understand it all and I really don't want to type it all out!

Anyway, more to come as this bittersweet journey is just beginning!

Go A-State Indians....oops, I mean Red Wolves!

Seriously Abby, if you EVER say that last line again I will have to never speak to you again. ASWho? I can't believe you have strayed so far from your roots. I don't even know who you are anymore... no self respecting Hog Fan can root for the biggest high school in the state.
