Living the "Adventure"

Faith Barista asked us to write about "adventure" for her Faith Jam. Her word for the week is "Adventure" and it pretty much sums up my life right now. I refuse to miss the blessings from it!

This year in my families life has been quite an adventure. My husband took a position with work FAR far far from family and "home".  It's been exciting, fun, and lonely at times.  I miss my family terribly more than I admit.  This blog was formed out of a need to share and connect since that has been lost in the move. 

God forces me out of my comfort zone, pushes me to be "ok" with who he made me to be in order to feel comfortable putting myself out there again.  I don't like it and I push back before I relent. In the relent is peace, I know I will be ok here or anywhere else we may go to next. I can say I trust Him fully now.

God has gone above and beyond answering prayers regarding this move for my kids, our new home, rental of our old home, a new church, and a few new friends that I am thankful to have met on our little adventure.

Click on over to Faith Barista 's site. There is a great post over there today on having a dream and NOT going back on it when things get scary! She spoke straight to me!

  1. Hello! I found your blog via Bonnie's site. I am your newest follower. It must be hard to be in a new place, far away from family. But it sounds like God has been with you every step of the way. Looking forward to getting to know you more!

  3. Alecia, I started my blog out of a desire to share and connect too! :) I didn't move to a new location, but I was a new mom who just gave birth to my second son. And even though I lived in the same place, my friends, my "work", my lifestyle, body -- everything had changed. I needed faith friends to go through the journey together. I celebrate your new adventure with faith and blogging! Keep the words flowing!
