God's Timing

I have loads to tell you blog world. LOADS. In fact, I'll probably spend the weekend telling you and commenting on your blogs I've been reading all week.

These are just some of the blog topics I want to discuss:
  • Sarah Palin: I KNOW!! My first real political commentary on the RTH Times. I figure it's about time that I do it. After all, the word hippie is in my blog title.
  • Thanking the Academy: I leave your mind to wonder on that one.
  • TWLOHA: Google this.
  • A good road story because we haven't had one in awhile. This one involves my dad.
So get excited all!

And now onto today's post.

It's about law school. I know we've had about all we can take about this topic around here, or at least I have but this is good and exciting news.

We know where we're moving. But before I tell you I first am going to tell you a story.

There's always a story.

As you may or may not know, I've been sick.

Sick with worry about the whole process.
Sick with worry about the unknown.
Sick with worry about leaving behind my every day life.
Sick with worry about the future.

And when I say sick, I'm talking literally sick.

But you know what, I didn't do what I should have.

I should have prayed about it. Because y'all, God answers prayer.

I never stopped believing it but apparently I needed a reminder.

Wednesday night, I stayed home with Brandon from our bible study. We both talked about how stressed we were. I left Brandon to lay on the couch while I watched Gilmore Girls. He came to bed and I turned off Gilmore Girls.

We talked for a few minutes and then Brandon prayed for us and he prayed that I would give my cares to God and that I would no longer make myself sick with worry. Said a few more prayers about our families and then closed the prayer.

I rolled over and went to sleep.

And I woke up the next morning and felt completely okay.

The nausea was gone and I felt wonderful.

I could function!!

I wound up feeling okay for the remainder of the day in fact.

And I had a peace about where God was sending us and about his timing.

I wasn't surprised when I saw I had an email from the last school.

I wasn't surprised when I found I didn't get into the school at Charlotte.

Because at my breaking point is when God became strong in the situation.

It was in his timing that I would find out we are going to Michigan.

And just to further prove that this is the direction he has for us, when I checked the mail I found I'd received a brochure for open house from the school in Michigan.

So we're headed to Michigan y'all.

This Southern girl is goin' North.

I'm sure they'll get a kick out of me because of my accent. But then again they sound like Sarah Palin, so I'll get a kick out of them too.

Not to mention, we'll be living in Big Ten country. You know they have mascots like the Hawkeyes and Nittany Lions. I'm sure they'll be very intrigued with my love for all things Sooner.

Happy Friday.

P.S. I just realized that in the time I was sick, I never prayed about it. I just whined about it. Glad to be reminded of the difference.

I'm so proud of you all!! Jessi and I have talked and just know I'm praying for you both! I love you and God will and can get you through this hard transition :) I know that God will use you and Brandon in so many wonderful ways! Even if it is way up 'North'
