What God Has Done

Just over a year ago, my family moved clear across the country to a small town out west, very different from any place I'd ever lived.

Let's just say this Southern girl wasn't exactly thrilled...

Join me today at the Internet Cafe for an update on What God Has Done in my life.

Y'all have a great weekend!

Hi Melanie -- your blog post was exactly what I needed today. I posted this morning on my FB wall that panic was starting to set in ... all because, like you, we will soon be packing our bags and venturing into the great unknown. While I've tried to look at this move as a wonderful fun adventure (which I truly believe it will be) lately the doubts, panic, worry, and sadness about all I'm leaving behind is starting to sink in. Your words were encouraging to me and helped reinforce that God has a plan, is going to stretch me (and hopefully thin me out!)in ways I can't possibly imagine and that a year from now I'll probably be writing a similar blog post.

So thank you :)

Melanie, I posted a comment over at the cafe but this is lovely. Thank you so much for sharing and I'm going to come here for coffee again to see just how God intends to use this in your life!

Hugs from Canada

This is a wonderful post. I really needed this right now. You know that we left Florida for our move across the country to northern Kentucky. (15 miles from Cincy) I haven't been reading my favorite blogs for the last few weeks because of the move. (I have been catching up on your many post that I have missed.) I didn't go kicking and screaming to the north but I wasn't extremely happy about it. I am southern to the core and I am a Floridian that loves sunshine and warm weather. Which is something that isn't in the north. Anyway, I flew up here on Oct. 30 with our son and stayed the weekend (hubby left the Monday before) and got Caden settled in and we were on our way to the walk thru on our new home when we got rear-ended. I just thought that I could NOT handle one more thing. We called the only person we knew up here, our realtor, and she came and got me while my husband dealt with the police. She took me to the new house and we did the walk thru. We only had time to get me to the airport for me to fly home and meet the movers the next day. I flew on Tuesday after the wreck, meet the movers on Weds. and then went to the ER for 4 1/2 hours. It was there that I had a complete meltdown and cried for about 45 mins. I just couldn't keep it all in anymore. I cried over the move, cried over the lose of money on our home, cried over the wreck, cried because I was mad about waiting so long at the ER, really I just cried it all out. We moved in last Tuesday and it has been nonstop. I will be dealing with some of what you talked about in your post. I needed to be reminded that God is in control. Everything works in His time and His way. We just have to believe in him. And I found me some sweet tea at Chick fi La:) (it just opened and is always busy but it is good)
