Sad and Happy!
So...Dallas, Selena, my precious Bella and sweet Dylan are moving approximately 986 miles away. I realize now that I was fortunate to have all of my children and grandchildren within an hour from me and having Dallas and his precious family in town was an absolute blessing. I am saddened but excited to see them go. I was the one that moved away from my family to experience life for myself and our family. So I understand Dallas' yearning to explore. He and I understand each other and love to travel and see and experience different places. He has always loved fishing, camping and shooting guns. He is so looking forward to doing a little bit more of the outdoor activities. And once more God shows us he is in control....Dallas got a call today that he has a job and starts next Monday. Dallas had been applying for jobs here in southern California for the last 6 months to see what was out there and never got one call or followup. In one day, he got 2 calls to follow up on applications he had placed in Colorado online. So I am sad and happy for my son and his family and will miss them terribly. Some good news...I get to travel to Colorado, a place I've not been in a long time. So I'm excited to make plans to visit Bella and Dylan in the near future (and of course, their mom and dad!).
The business closing will be a blessing too and a big relief. Another not easy to go through experience but I feel such a relief not to have to continue something so stressful at this time in our lives. I want to thank Lisa at Sharing Life with Lisa for her blog that encourages me always as does Lisa with her kind comments left on my blog. God is using her mightily! Check out her blog here and join me in knowing that Jesus is enough! I don't know how I would make it through the trials in my life without Jesus. Today I am looking UP even though my emotions are all over the place!! AMen! JeSus Is EnoUgH!!
