And away we go..............

On December 2nd we walked away from the only source of income we had. Jon and I knew without a doubt that the Lord was leading us this way, although we had not idea how we would pay the bills. It has now been almost four months and we are doing very well. God provided for us financially, we never even touched our savings account. I cannot believe what a blessing this time has been.

Two weeks ago Jon went for an interview with a company out of Chattanooga. It was very competitive, forty men competing for the job, and they picked Jon! We are very excited. We knew we wanted to be in the North Alabama - Tennessee area. Jon is actually drilling in Nashville, since he is still in the reserves. So, this job is perfect.

The military will move our stuff back to our home of record (alabama) and we are going to move it the rest of the way. They come pack us up on April 5th. Our stuff arrives in Alabama on April 11th, where will meet it and head up to TN that weekend. We leave next week to house hunt in TN.

In less than three weeks we will no longer be Floridians. We are sad, excited, and nervous all at the same time.

God is so good. The job is an excellent paying position with amazing benefits. They even have tuition assistance. It is ALOT like the military, but it is civilian and he will be coming home almost every night. We can move around, but only as much as we want to, we will not have to. It has everything we prayed for and more and we are very excited to see what God is going to do next.

I'm so thrilled for you guys, Julie! But sad to see you leave FL. :( I just don't know what's wrong with us that it has been 20 months since Greg lost his job and nothing. What in the world have we done to deserve this?
