Proverbs 16:9

I am sitting in my house typing out this email and contemplating where to put all of my decorative items, that are currently in storage, back out in our house. When staging our house to move, I packed up my favorite decorative odds and ends and put them in storage. But, I will GLADLY say that I get to take them out and use them!! That is because we are staying put. We get to stay in our house in Oklahoma City!!!

Josh has accepted a position as the Education Minister at Memorial Road Church of Christ. I am looking forward to attending MRCC again! I attended with my family from the time I was 4 until I was 11. I went back in high school to be in the youth group. I have very fond memories of classes, worship and the people there! We are excited to get back in to ministry! We are also very excited to stay close to our family and friends!

Over this past month we have realized that you can plan all you want, but God really is in control and he really does determine your steps! God has changed our hearts and helped us realize after lots of prayer and guidance that this really is our course.

Thank you for those of you who have asked about my job opportunities in Texas and your concern about us selling our home (which is off the market, by the way!). Thank you for putting up with my very vague answers as we have been in the process of getting everything squared away! Thank you to my sister-in-law, Mandy, for doing an amazing job on marketing our home!! Thank you also to everyone who has prayed for us over the past few months regarding our move, etc.!!

I am happy to say that Texas license plates will not be decorating my car any time soon!!! I'm ready to break out my iron skillet and stink up the house again! Pan-seared steaks anyone?!?

Yay! My sis in law told me yesterday after they announced it at church. I'm so happy for you guys. We'll have to visit Memorial sometime now.

And you know what this means...you have to read the book for book club.

I think we should celebrate Josh's new job with a girl's trip to Starbucks. Glad you're staying!!

Chiming in late to say "SO EXCITED"!!

I was really getting depressed thinking you all were leaving.

I echo Emily's point about book club. No excuses now...you're in for good!
