After 2 1/2 months of waiting...

God has answered our prayers, and it is really the perfect timing for many reasons. We are going back to the camp that we worked at before we moved to San Marcos. We have learned and grown so much over the past 1 1/2 years... so we don't regret any minute of being in San Marcos. I have a completely different perspective that I'm bringing to the camp this time (much more kingdom minded), and I'm very excited about God being glorified. There are so many details that I'm excited about that don't really matter in the big scheme of things... but God is amazing and orchestrated this so perfectly. Not only are we going to be living in an amazing house, we get insurance again, and Robert gets retirement. Plus, he gets vacation (which will come in handy when this baby is born!) and holidays again. Everything that we took for granted, God is allowing us to have those back. We will appreciate them so much more now than ever before. Also, some good friends of ours will be there (Clay and Jackie!)! There will be a female that is close to my age this time :). That is a huge deal! Robert will be doing what he's passionate about- Outdoor Ed and Recreation! I will be able to stay home until August at least... we'll see what's going to happen past that. I will probably look for a teaching job in the area. One day at a time, though! I'm learning to just enjoy today!
Robert and I have decided that we are going to stay (Lord willing) for a long time. We want to be settled... doing something that we (I) know now God has called us to do. It won't be easy, but I've learned that life just isn't easy, so I can handle the hard times a little better. Praise God for everything... nothing is through our power, but through His.
