Hello Everyone. I am sorry that I have not blogged in a while, I am really going to try and get better at this, I promise! Meanwhile, for those of you who just like the pictures, I am sorry that this post will disappoint. I am in the library right now (obviously not wanting to do school work) and so I will connect my camera at home and update some with some pictures next post. I was thinking about a few things on my drive in this morning and so thought I would share.

As exams approach and things start to get crazy, I am so thankful to have my husband. As a couple getting married young, we got a lot of comments during our engagement like, "Are you sure you want to get married now?" or "Wouldn't you rather wait until you are out of school" or (my favorite) "Sweetie, you are so young and have so many things left to do, wait to get married!" Well to all of these comments, Will and I just smiled and politely said that this is what we wanted. Will and I were so ready to start our lives together, and I am so glad that we got married when we did. For us, it has been such a blessing.

We have been able to be right there with each other as we each started this exciting step in life. I have loved getting to hear everyday about Will's first year in his job and see his excitement with all of his accomplishments. And, Will has made my first year and a half of law school so much easier by always being ready to cook dinner, or fix me a cup of hot tea, or even just staying up watching tv if I have to stay up too. Basically, I am just saying that he is pretty awesome!

I am enjoying every moment of our time together, but lately anxiety and worry about changes for next year have begun to creep into my thoughts. As a lot of you know, Will's job requires a mandatory move after two years, which will be this coming May. Right now, even though we live in Charleston, he works in St. Matthews, which is right on the other side of Orangeburg. For this move coming up, they could place him anywhere in South Carolina. So, a new location may put him even closer to Charleston, but on the other hand it could add time to our driving or even require me to spend Monday-Wednesday in Charleston without Will.

We are both happy for him to go anywhere, because a move would also mean a new opportunity for his career and a chance for him to learn new sides to South Carolina agriculture and forestry. That being said, we (I mean pretty much me) are starting to get a little anxious about where we will be moved, mainly because I will still have one year in school left. Also, I cannot begin looking for a job this summer until I know where we will be living. We find ourselves playing the "what if" game several times a week, playing out different locations and our options. But, at the end of the day, we know that we will make it work, and God will place us exactly where he wants us! So now, I am just constantly reminding myself to stop trying to take control and let God lead us.

“And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.”
Phil 4:19
