He's ALMOST a big kid now.

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us. -Ephesians 3:20

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." -Jeremiah 29:11

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. -Philippians 4:6-8

I had planned to write this long grandiose post about how hard Brandon worked during college and how this past year has been a major struggle and now we're seeing the fruition of that hard work and patience.

Second, I'd planned to talk about how while I've written about my journey to grad school, I hadn't written much about B. It wasn't on purpose, just happened that way. He's a pretty private person.

Third, I planned to discuss about how his momma told us that things would happen once we got back from our trip to Oklahoma and within weeks Brandon had a job. Within a month and a half or two of being at this job, he had calls for multiple interviews.

BUT...we don't have time for that.

Long story short, Brandon has three job offers.
Count 'em: 1, 2, 3.
And we are so excited!!

He went to an interview yesterday and within 30 minutes they submitted an offer to him.

And then...

His current job counter-offered.

They are really great offers.

We went to bed last night thinking we had our minds made up.

And then....

We woke up this morning and he had an email with an offer from a third company he interviewed with last week.

This offer is really great too.

And now we don't know what to do. 

So we need some serious prayers. This is what we need you to pray about right now because we're gonna make a decision in the next few hours.
  1. Please pray that God will reveal himself to us so that we know what to do.
  2. Also, to give us peace about our decision. 
God is so good!

Thank y'all a ton!

Happy Thursday!

EDITED TO ADD: He's officially a big kid now!! He has a job!!
