Woah, I just called my husband to tell him I'm coming home.I know, shocking, right? But I think back to a year ago (heck, less) when we had NO CLUE where we would be living, where Matt would have a job, if I would be in graduate school (for an example, click here). I just could not wait to be married. Now, we had an amazing wedding and are enjoying our first year as husband & wife. He has a great job that he loves, we live in Texas which was our number one choice, and I got into an amazing graduate program where I am also employed as a TA/RA. We are involved with an amazing church, have some family members up here, and are mostly happy with our apartment.
To be honest, it is more than I could have hoped for. Totally shows that God provides. Anyway, as I was having these thoughts, it also occurred to me that I really should not be anxious for anything. He is in control. He put us here for many reasons, He has a plan.
It also occurred to me that I should enjoy where I am in life. Yeah, life gets stressful and crazy at times. I spend more of our weekends together doing homework than I would prefer. I dream about having an actual home, where I can't hear my upstairs neighbor play fetch with his dogs right when we climb into bed. Regardless, life is still so good.
And that to me is a huge comfort when life seems to be more than I can handle. I look back a year ago and think about how much I wanted where I am now. It is very hard to be negative when that is my perspective!
What about you? Have you ever had such a revelation where things just clicked?
