I'm Moved | Good change-Sweet timing!

Well, Its been a while since I wrote so I thought I'd do another catch up for you all. Ashley and I have really been evaluating our finances going into a marriage. And after a couple weeks of looking for houses and rental properties we both thought it would be best not to have me move into a place thats crazy expensive for one person, plus this time is a great chance for me to get caught up on bills/debt. So I have just moved in with my aunt and uncle, JIm and Janet Davis. Its great, the setup is awesome, they have offered up their entire basement to me. Complete with space for a bedroom, office and living space. The living space has a small kitchen, entertainment area, dining area (perfect for cards- uno especially). The other side is the bedroom/office. Its great is all I have to say. They have been so good to me. So good to Ash and me. My first night here ashley and I were making headway in the wedding planner Barbara and Kasi made us, and Janet sat right in asking questions, really helping us with some fun decisions. Asking ashley about wedding dresses, the ceremony, who we are having in the wedding, lots of stuff. Then we got to have really good time together, just thinking about how all the things God has done to prove his love for us. Which brings me to my next point, independence. They are really making it comfortable for me to feel OK about not having to let them know everything I am doing, that I can just sit down here and write, read or work, without that lingering feeling of: I should be upstairs spending time with them since they are letting me stay here. None of that. Although, I do want a new relationship to being here. With Jim, Janet and their son, my cousin, Jimmy.

This marks the start of an amazing marriage. Yes, I had caution about this move, it was weird, and I told Jim that, but we both agreed pride gets strong sometimes and it doesn't need to stand in the way of all the good things God can do.

So, where do we go from here? Well, I have a few jobs I am pumped about, getting these done will allow me to save, pay off things and not have anxiety of money isues for a few months, to grow, to plan and to learn. I also have some things to get together for Christian Academy, things that would move me into a plce of full-time employment there. Luckily they are on Spring Break and allows time to collect and manage everything they need to see, the ball is in my court and they really want me there. And God does too!

There is a heep load of more things going on but I need to get some things done here, and get over to my apartment to finish loading some small things and clean it up for the next person. And moving on from here is something I have thought about but do not want to engage right now, just trying to be patient, let God work and be thankful!

Peace ya'll!
