thank you lord! 2 years in Midland!

Dear Lord,

Thank you so much for the reminder of your faithfulness to us today. Hard to believe it’s been 2 years since we moved to Midland. I can remember the way I felt exactly two years ago today, pulling up to my new home with just Stephen & our cat – knowing we were in for an adventure. I also remember the days and months leading up to that when we had conversations about wanting to stay in Austin for 2 or 3 more years then got the call the next week that we were moving out West. I bawled. I was so upset – I did not want to move! The timing on it was not perfect {or so I thought, because it was not my timing} and we didn’t know hardly anyone there! After a few days, you helped me warm up to the idea and have a good attitude about it. We might be moving far away, but at least I was with Stephen. I remember jamming out to my “OTM” {on the way to Midland} CD’s Scarlett made me and just bawling crying once we left the Austin city limits. Once we got to Midland, we entered an empty house and a city full of strangers. But, it didn’t take long for us to meet new friends and find a church home. It’s amazing to think how far you’ve brought us since May 19, 2008. You knew we were supposed to be in Midland & you had to find a reason to get us here {Stephen’s job} and even though that is not the reason we are still here – we are in fact still here. We know it has ALL been your plan & the timing of it has been perfect. Who knows what sort of opportunity we would have missed out on if we would have moved at any other time. You orchestrated it perfectly & introduced me to the friends that you did that summer that would later get me involved in most of the things I’m still involved in today. We have had awesome opportunities to be friends with people you’ve put in our lives, serve those you’ve put around us, work with those you’ve destined us to work with and have loved it all! We have no idea what the future holds for us, but that is the exciting part! To be able to look back and see your faithfulness & your hand in it all. We wouldn’t trade the past 2 years for anything – even though it hasn’t all been peaches and roses. THank you Lord that YOUR time is perfect & help me to remember that going forward – that no matter how I plan, your plan prevails. Your plan & timing are perfect! Thank you Jesus!
In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.

    Oh my sweet Wynne!! And I can’t imagine life without you in it!! What an incredibly blessing God sent me 2 years ago; someone that I just adore! someone that is constantly challenging me and nudging me closer to the Cross, someone that has sleep-overs and road trips, and fun dinners, and weekly lunches, and bible studies and Aggie Wives talks. I am SOOOOOOO excited God crossed our paths and I love doing life with you! Love you!!!!

    I’m so glad you are so happy! I feel like that was my story moving from Austin to Houston when we first got married. Hated it at first, but ended up loving it and finding the best friends ever!!! I’m just hoping for part II to play itself out here in Dallas! šŸ™‚ It’s getting better, but still doesn’t feel like home. Can’t wait to see what the next few years bring to all our lives.
