You probably can't make it out but the bottom shares the latest news in our life.
We're moving to Des Moines, Iowa in July!
Jason will be starting med school there in August. I'm ridiculously proud of him! It has been so much work to get to this point, and we've really been blessed in the process. It makes me happy to see how anxious he is for this next stage. Most people are intimidated by the years and years that lie ahead, but Jason is as ready as ever.
There's so many thoughts swirling around in my head about the move. Where does one even begin when making such huge changes? I'm excited for the new opportunities, but an ache is building in my heart about moving and leaving the life we've built here. It's always scary to leave what we know to go to something we don't know.
I can't say it's been the easiest process and God has been teaching me a lot through this journey. I have felt a little helpless as so much depended on Jason and which schools accepted him. I like to feel like I have control of my life and the future in front of me. I say feel, because it's rather foolish of me to think I'm the one in control. God has used this as a reminder that I have to surrender my own will and desires so that he can work in my life. If I could have chosen, Des Moines would probably not have been it, but it's clear that God has plans for us there. It sounds so simple and clear, but it's so much harder to live it out.
I'm still grappling with all of this, but God is in control.
Iowa, like it or not, here we come!
