Time to Break Away

In one week my life is going to change. The day I have actually been hoping would come much later is almost here. This bittersweet day I am referring to is the day I move to Texas and break away from a lot of things dear to me. 

So about 6 months ago God blessed my husband with an awesome opportunity. I was very excited for him but sad that it was all the way in Texas. I knew this would be a great move for his career and in the long run for our family. Texas is a beautiful state and the cost of living is so much better than Jersey. The only problem is that I was pregnant with our first child, my family is here and deep down I was afraid of change. I have lived in Jersey from the day I was born. Jersey is all I knew: my family, friends, and church family are in Jersey. I was not ready to leave everyone. So I decided to stay in Jersey and have our baby here while my husband left to start his new job. It was not easy in the beginning, the separation, but it got better because I have great family, friends and church family. I made up in my mind that I would stay till Thanksgiving. At first November seemed far away but after Faith was born the weeks went by quick.

I woke up this morning and all on my mind was that I am leaving in one week. It also didn’t help that my husband called and was like in one week we’ll be on the road. (We are driving by the way). I know change is good and my family will all be together in our beautiful new home, but I am going to miss everyone in Jersey. I still don’t understand why God moved our family out to Texas, but I know He always has a plan and purpose for everything and I just have to trust Him. I know He will reveal it to me soon enough.


~Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding~ Proverbs 3:5

  3. Hi Dorcas!
    Firstly, congrats on the blog! It's soooo cute!
    Secondly, congrats on the baby! Janet keeps posting pictures of her. She's soooo cute too!
    Thirdly, it's always hard to leave home. But change is good, and it is necessary! Just make your home in Texas, or wherever the Lord leads you. I promise you that in every new place you will find little bits of home and family there, if you are open to it!
