Transition Time

I have had so many different topics that I have thought about blogging on during the past month and a half but with so much change and happenings it has actually felt a little overwhelming to figure out what I actually want to express.  So...here we are, writing about Transition!  :)

Yesterday, I started a new job back at our church, Stonebridge Evangelical Free as the Children's Ministry Assistant.  It is part-time and I am very excited to be back working at a place that I love and using some of my gifts to further God's kingdom.  However, it was also very hard to leave my job for the past two years, a barista at Wit's End coffeehouse.  These two jobs are so completely different and yet I love both of them!  It is at times of transition that I always am reminded that I do not do change well.  I firmly believe that is why God made me a passionate person.  He helps me commit and dive-in full board right away with things I am excited about so that when I get into what I am doing and think, " I can't do this," or "What am I doing," I realize that I need to forge ahead and it will go just fine!  After all, God is the one in control and if he has given me the peace about a decision, I must be following His will!  Below are two pictures of my last days at Wit's End! Such a great place to work with wonderful co-workers and customers!   
Mondays were called "Red-headed Mondays"! :)
 August also means that Matt heads back into work at full steam.  Since he works in education, we are very blessed to have a chunk of time out of the summer that he is off.  We cherish that time and Caleb loves spending time with his "Da-da".  This summer we were able to go out to Colorado for a week to visit friends and family.  Below is a picture from our trip there.

Recently we have also found out about a few friends that will be moving away in the near future.  Many of my close friends over the past 10 years or so have all moved away.  I have come to see this also as a way that God pushes me out of my comfort zone.  If my friends that I get along so well with were where I lived and always stayed near me, I might never reach out to new people.  We only have so much time in our lives for relationships so this is one easy way to help me to reach out to new people! :) 

Last but not least, Caleb is transitioning as well.  He is no longer a baby but a toddler!  He has his own likes, dislikes and wants to be independent.  It is fun to see him develop but can also be frustrating at times.  Matt and I are in a new season of parenting and it requires a lot of patience, prayer and asking God for wisdom!  Many days we just look at each other and think...."We have no idea what to do!". :)
