Finally, A Post!

Dear Friends and Followers,

I am so sorry to have put my blogging on hold, but with all the indecision about my future going on I really had nothing useful to say except how frustrated I was and all that. Not fun stuff to read. But I finally have news to share, and so here goes:

We are, after careful consideration and lots of prayer, moving back to the United States. We will fly into Phoenix, visit with my husband's family in Arizona for a few weeks, and then drive east to Chattanooga, Tennessee, where we will be putting down roots. 

For at least a year, maybe longer.

Let me backpedal a bit and say that my husband got accepted at his school, and my daughter got accepted at her school. But, with the economic situation being what it is, it seemed like a bad idea to move us to Germany with no job and little prospect of finding a job as nobody speaks German. We tried to find funding in the form of a scholarship, but things just didn't work out. Most of the scholarships for the coming year had already been awarded. So, we will return to the states and try to figure things out from there.

There are so many things to do, but God seems to be working a step ahead of us. I only have to think about the next problem I need to solve when the solution appears. But, because we are dismantling our lives, I am certain that I will really have to put my blogging on hold. This morning I put my etsy shop in vacation mode until August 1, and I think that is a wise time frame to put my blogging on hold for, too. We are leaving Singapore probably on July 2, so I think by the beginning of August, we should be settled in our new home - or at least I will have internet access at my sister's house - so I should have lots to tell you by then.

Thank you for being more faithful than me! Have a wonderful summer and I will talk to you all soon!

I wish you and your family all the best for the future, at least you will be near to your sister! :-)
I hope to hear from you again in August.
Take care!

WOW! Lots of changes ahead.

I know Mel is just thrilled, and you'll likely just take it all in stride.

Good luck, and don't forget to BREATHE!

What an uncertain time for your family. I always appreciated your thoughts and prayers on my blog, and I'll be sure to pray for your family's smooth transition.

Hi Brooke,

Good luck with your move - what a major change! It sounds like you're taking it all in stride. How nice that you'll be close to your sister.

I'm so happy the indecision period is over for you. God's plans are there if we listen. It sounds like a fun time catching up with both sides of the family too.
