I have been getting asked by so many people why we are moving SO far away. Far from our families, far from our friends, far from our church.....from everything. Why?
well, my hubby has ALWAYS wanted to move there.....like always. He has always loved the North, loved the cold and small town life. When I first proposed that we sell the house and pay off some rather large financial commitments, I had NO idea that it would be PG! We kind of jumped all over the map of where we were going to move. From the next city over to 2 cities over to where we are going now 9 hours north of here.
I felt up for the adventure and even asked J if he could go anywhere in the world and $ was not an object, where would it be? I am thinking to myself Ireland or New Zealand.....you know somewhere beautiful like that! I have been to Ireland before and knew I could live there, the country and the people were amazing there! so here I am thinking of these wonderful places and others and he says "Prince George"........W.H.A.T..........
I guess it was time. Time to let my hubby lead us to where he wants to be and to trust that God is leading my hubby! I am a bit of a control freak and well.......without going into writing a novel!......this has been a long time coming, of me trusting J in leading our family. If you had told me a year ago we would be moving there I would have NOT believed you AT ALL.......so this is amazing to me and to him and he is just so happy to be going there. It seems that we are really being blessed too. J is getting a job making more $ then ever before and the biggest house I could imagine us owning! acreage to have a hobby farm which is a dream come true. All blessings, all things that I would have been missing out on if I had tried to stay in the driver's seat of this marriage instead of letting J drive.
I have peace about this move, even with all the craziness that has been going on, I still know we are supposed to move there. We have been getting asked if we are sure we are supposed to move there after all the problems we seem to be having? I said YES. I started praying in Jan for CLEAR direction and well, you couldn't get more clear answers then NOT getting a house you are putting offers on!!! Sometimes it is hard to know what direction your feet are taking you...........so all you can do is keep stepping forward and trusting that God will open and close the right doors. Trusting in your husband and trusting that God is leading him and trusting that he hears God's voice is a step in the right direction! even if it means moving 900 kms away!
