Life is like the weather! It’s so unpredictable…

Okay, I have missed blogging over the last week because we had some family matters to attend to and now I am back on it.

First, I want to say that I was able to meet Jonathan’s extended family and enjoyed every minute of it. I was able to get to know some really wonderful people and the upside is I am now related to them and am really excited about getting to know them hopefully even more. (I love you guys)

Well, I mentioned a couple posts earlier that we were hoping to move to New Mexico to get closer to family, but, (a big but), the winds of change have come and it looks like we are staying put in Golden. Hey, I am okay with that and actually relieved that our life is no longer up in the air. I am going to stay at my job and we are keeping our condo. We tried to rent it out last month but that didn’t happen so that was a real inclination that pointed to our stay. Another reason is my husband landed an awesome contracting job working with someone in California by telecommuting, which means that we could possibly move anywhere we want but for right now we have decided to stay. . .

So, we thought we knew what we were going to do, and how things were going to fall into place with our desire to move down to New Mexico, but Father had other plans and it turned out that moving was not in the forecast after all.

Hi Nicole,

I wandered on over here from Aida's new blog. :)

I like what you said in the comments of her first post, when you were talking about the titles of blogs. When I saw the title of this post of yours, it reminded me of John 3:8, "The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit."

Life is unpredictable indeed!

It also reminded me of Forrest Gump's words, "My momma always said, 'Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get.'" :)

Hi Joel,

Glad to see you over here. Nicki's got some great things to share and I think you'll enjoy her blog. She's the friend I mentioned that had inspired me with her new blog.

Hi Nicki,

I'm glad you're back blogging. I've missed you. Life is definitely unpredictable. I'm glad you're finally settled. I know you'll miss not being closer to your family but at least you won't have to leave the little girls you care for and Jon's new job sounds great.

I like that scripture Joel mentioned. Recently, I've been spending some time reading the story about Jesus' conversation with Nicodemus. I really feel that a certain amount of unpredictablity should be normal for us as believers. Life should definitely not be set in stone.

Nicki, when you get a chance, check out Joel's website. He's got a blog, some podcasts and some videos. I've really been strengtened in my journey since I found his website. I think you'll like what he has to share.

Love Aida

Hello Joel, Welcome and nice to meet you. Thank you for your input. That is a great scripture that you mentioned. I was thinking that what I was writing sounded like I heard it somewhere before... Good Stuff.

Hey Aida, thank you for your comments, I was blessed to see that you opened your own blog and I will visit frequently. You always have awesome things to say and I could always use your input and thoughts to get me through the day!

Love, Nicki!
