in the mood

I'm in the mood to make some decisions! Brian, as you know, often chooses one statement that summarizes our current state of being on a particular topic. The phrase he keeps quoting right now is a snippit from when I called him the other day to say, "I need to know where my baby is going to live."

This is God's honest truth, friends. I'm in the mood to make some decisions.

I'm in the mood to sign a lease. To buy clothes to wear to work. To WORK in a field that is important to me. To be where I'm going to be. I'm in the mood for stability. To eat on my plates and cook in my kitchen and plan for our future and walk in a neighborhood and go to our church. I'm in the mood to get on with it.

Enough process, enough talk ... I'm in the mood to move!

Has anyone else noticed, for our little group, that we always seem to be in roughly the same place at roughly the same time? We wait together and we move together and we complain together and we grieve together and we're bored together and we travel together ... it's odd, really. The little circle gets wider, but it keeps moving round and round.

You couldn't be more right about our little circle. I too am ready for YOU to have those things. I know you and Brian both have been struggling and waiting, and more so I know God is faithful and you will be right where you need to be right when you need to be...you always are. Hang in there!

I can totally understand that mood. And it is funny - no matter how our circles grows and moves, we flow. It is a beautiful testament to friendships.

I know you are so ready to have a home of your own. God knows exactly where he wants you to be and what he wants you to be doing.
He will lead you, just be still.
Love you!

The waiting is the hardest. I had this feeling back last summer (consequently when you guys did and you made decisions to leave bham) and it has been HARD to way 12 months to be able to act on those choices and it was like 8 months before I even knew any details about where we might be going. It is H.A.R.D.
But, what I've really learned recently is when you go through that waiting and through the doubt and faith, you feel SO bonded to others when they feel it too.

I think God has put all of us in our little circle for a reason even though now it is really spreading out wide! I can't wait until we have the Baby Gates in it.

Stephanie, I just wanted to say hi, I miss you, and I miss our girls nights. I hope you and Brian are settled and happy really soon.
