It's Official!

We are moving! We finalized our plans this week and we are headed to Harlingen at the end of June... just a year late! Some of our plans have changed a little- Travis is not going to be farming right away because unfortunately the farm is having another hard year. Also, there are a lot of decisions that have to be made before they are going to be ready for Travis. So in the meantime Travis has been offered a job as an Office Manager at a Family Practice Clinic in Harlingen. We feel blessed that the Lord has provided this job for Travis which will allow me to continue to stay home with the boys. The opportunity arose at a perfect time as things have been slowing down for Travis around here and the farm is struggling. We are so glad that things seem to finally be coming together for our family. It has been a hard 7-8 months since Travis was laid off and us living job to job, and day by day, but God has provided every step of the way. We have been stretched and our faith has been tested, but we are stronger for it. There is a song that is playing on the radio lately and I LOVE it because it just reinforces what we have been through and that we are still waiting on the Lord to finish what He has asked of us- for Travis to farm. Travis and I both feel that the Lord has something up His sleeve for us, but we are just waiting, trying to be patient and trust in His timing. Here are the lyrics and go here to listen to the song.


While I'm Waiting by John Waller

I'm waiting
I'm waiting on You, Lord
And I am hopeful
I'm waiting on You, Lord
Though it is painful
But patiently, I will wait

I will move ahead, bold and confident
Taking every step in obedience

While I'm waiting
I will serve You
While I'm waiting
I will worship
While I'm waiting
I will not faint
I'll be running the race
Even while I wait

I'm waiting
I'm waiting on You, Lord
And I am peaceful
I'm waiting on You, Lord
Though it's not easy
But faithfully, I will wait
Yes, I will wait

I will serve You while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting
I will serve You while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting
I will serve You while I'm waiting
I will worship while I'm waiting on You, Lord

I know what that feels like too, Sarah, and it feels so good knowing that He DOES have something amazing planned for you guys. I trust that with my whole heart. We continue to keep you guys in prayer and offer up praise for the good things coming your way.
On another subject, Sam really misses Tyler. The next time you guys get to Virginia, please call us. It's only a 2-3 hour drive from us, and we'd love try to get together for a while.
