When I first started blogging about our move to California, I made a conscious decision not to divulge too much (or at all) about the struggles I would encounter while living here. After all, I created the blog to share my pictures, not my feelings (otherwise, I sure wouldn't have posted the site on Facebook!). And too, what validity would any of my complaints have? I had been taken out of a very full and busy life and brought to a beautiful place to live with my husband and my dog. What possible negative emotions could surface with such a gift? Well, there's another side of this adventure that does include my emotions and believe me (or ask Steve) they have been all over the place in the past three months.
I've gone from saying, "I can't believe I get to do this!" to "I'm not sure I can do this!" to "I know that God wants me here"- which is a good place to be. My longings for community, fellowship, and serving others are all valid and I'm hopeful that the church we've been attending will enable us to experience all three. I'll keep you posted.
P. S. Quite a different post from the PicMonkey post, huh? (I hope you weren't worried about me!)
