He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. - Psalm 107:29
Wake me up when September ends? Um... it's ending! Wake up! Y'all, September was a blurry roller coaster of a ride for us. I still can't really talk about it yet, though the rumors are out, and that is what it is. We made a major decision, and everything else strategically, and with diligent work, fell into place. We are finally coming up for air, and looking back at the humongous wave we just rode. There is another coming, but we have a few weeks before that tidal wave hits, and we will be ready. Not only will we be ready... we will be willing!
We aren't the type of couple to do things meagerly, and that's not an ego thing, it's just how we roll. We are risk takers, brave and true. It may scare the coo coo bears out of me, but I am always up for the adventure. The future looks bright for us and we are so very happy! Alas, there is still a lot of work to be done and time to pass before we get to where we are going. It's hard to be patient sometimes, but God's timing is perfect and I trust Him.
In the middle of the month - in the middle of all this decision making and planning and craziness - I did something life-changing. I was baptized! It was a long journey to get to this point, and an emotional one. Harvey's Point Christian Church has become a wonderful place for me to be. I love being around the wholesome, calm and loving people. God's word, the church and all my new friends at the church have helped make this month a little easier to handle. I thank all of them for their kind words and for welcoming me with open arms. I am experiencing a new life in so many ways. I am rejoicing this beautiful change!
So, the next few months are going to be very transitional. The farm is dying down, and with no pumpkins or fall garden, the moments caught on film are becoming few and far between, however they are there and when I see them I try to catch them! I am grateful for these moments that stop me in my tracks. These moments remind me that there is always calm, grace and beauty in the eye of the storm or in the hollow of a wave. I long for the calm. We will be back to normal soon enough. ;)
