Somethings things change rather quickly don't they? Sometimes life takes us down a road we weren't planning on taking. Sometimes our plans aren't what God has planned for us. Sometimes life just has a different idea.
This has happened to me so many times in my life, and once again it's happened again. I shouldn't be so surprised, after all if anything I should be very used to it! Last minute changes. Sudden changes. Surprising changes. Huge life altering changes. If I could use one word to describe my life life thus far....I'd say change.
If you've been reading my blog for any time at all I'm sure you know that my husband has been away, working in England. The contract signed was for 6 long months. But after struggling with dishonest employers who kept breaking the contract and adding new elements to the job that weren't discussed previously...not to mention not getting paid. (hey, I'm the angry pregnant wife here who is overprotective of my husband! you don't even want to to get me started!) My husband and the company mutually parted ways. Being the determined man he is (I really married a good one, I tell you...) within two 2 days he already had two new confirmed jobs in London ready to start. But after some thoughtful praying and discussion, my husband decided it was best to come home.
Such a sweet word! Keep in mind, all of this happened literally within a few days. It was all so rushed and actually rather stressful (!) but before I knew it I was on the way to the airport with my dad to go pick him up! You have no idea how nervous I was to see him again, isn't that funny? It must have taken me an hour to pick out what I was going to wear. :-) When I saw him come through the doorway with his baggage I couldn't hold back my huge smile, and I swear it's been on my face ever since. :-)
I have regrets that his job didn't work out. I am so sorry he had to experience such a bad employer. But plans change....life makes crazy fast turns that sometimes we don't understand. But that's ok. You have to have enough grace and humility to just go with the flow. Accept the change. Be willing to take another route. And you know what? God really does know what he is doing when it comes to our lives. Since my husband made the decision to come home, other opportunities and windows have been opened. It really all worked out for the best! Of course, I couldn't be happier. After all, I'm back in his arms. We're together. And to me... that is all that matters. :-)
If you actually read through this entire post, I applaud you. I know that I can be quite the rambler. :-) Thank you for being such sweet followers! I really appreciated all the support and amazing comments and emails that I received in the past few weeks. It really touched my heart and meant so much to me!
Wishing everybody a lovely Sunday... as happy as mine. :-)
