It's as if the Lord decided I needed change in my life.
Notice I didn't say A change because that would imply that one thing in my life is changing. No, friends, nearly every thing in my life is changing.
I recently got a job in a new district teaching Kindergarten (a new grade). That obviously means a whole lot of new. New friends, new students, new school, new classroom and furniture, new procedures and routines, new, new, new. I know one person going into this year... and that is a bit frightening.
But apparently i'm about to get over that real quick ha :)
If you are friends with me on facebook you are very aware, probably more than you'd like to be, that my younger sister is getting married in four short days. And about two weeks ago I finally realized that we are facing the first big "season change"...
I seriously bawled my stinkin' eyes out when I wrote my Maid Of Honor Novel, I mean speech, because it finally hit me - We are no longer in our "childhood". We are officially grown up and will never live together again. My sister is moving out, never to occupy the room next to me ever again. We will never share a bathroom and cry and laugh and vent while the other uses the restroom or bathes. When I stay out late at Mark's I won't come home to the lamp on so that I can see walking up the stairs.
so. much. change.
I think I cried all of my tears this past weekend so that hopefully I won't ruin the wedding with the ugly cry.
Please do not misunderstand me! I am so very happy for my sister and know that this is the right time and completely God's will. It's just going to be a big change... a part of life that we have just reached. And i'm clinging to Jesus every step of the way. I've always heard about getting older and embracing the joys in the different seasons of life. It's a completely different thing to actually be standing at the door to said season.
And so I anxiously wait to see all that God does in these short weeks and all the many changes.
Our week is busy and full.... we would love your prayers as we squeeze in every moment of our time together :)
Love you all!
