as most of you know, we are moving to little rock! after months of thinking and talking about it, we’re finally DOING it. the bottom line is that we really need more income…and getting that in this town is close to impossible. also, doug still really wants to be a missionary in india someday soon–to reach that “goal,” we have several bills that need to be paid first.
i’m starting to get PRETTY nervous since it’s, oh JUNE NINTH, and we don’t have a place to live yet. (we’re moving there the weekend of the 27th, by the way, for me to start my new job as medical transcriptionist at Youth Home on the 30th.)
not to mention? we’re still waiting for a job for doug, too…
not to mention? we don’t know what we’ll do about childcare–at least, temporarily. (my parents, unbelievably, are almost positive they’re moving to LR, too!! and want to continue to take care of Elisabeth. AH-MAY-ZING.)
the past few months have been really tough–trying to sort out everything, fighting with the Lord on whether or not I can trust Him (WHAT is my deal?!)…i’m so grateful for this time, though, because this test of faith/trust has caused me to seek Him more than i have in a long time.
we find out on wednesday if Elisabeth will have a baby brother or sister. i’m very excited! we have a name for a boy (Charles Spencer–go by Spencer, my maiden name)…but if she’s a girl, we’ve got some thinking to do! i really hope to find a name that means faith or trust. perhaps a middle name of Faith, but i’m not sure.
we’re going to get to look at three more houses for rent on wednesday, so perhaps at least ONE of those will work!!…
i’ll update later this week with all our happy news! :)
