On the road again...and quickly!

so it looks like we're moving again! this time to a town in kansas called liberal. it's about 15,000 and fairly isolated (closest city is wichita...about 2.5hrs away!). jonathan was offered a circulation manager position there and has accepted. i'm really excited for him and for us! i really am!! and so very proud of my hubbs! now we just need a place to live...and quickly! they are wanting jonathan to start work on the 16th....so i have a week or less to say goodbye to my friends and family here....oh so hard! i struggle most with the fact that libbs is so attached to everyone now. already when she asks for someone i start crying knowing that very soon i won't be able to tell her "maybe we'll go visit poppo (or whoever she is asking for) tomorrow." oh how it breaks my heart. please pray with me for peace and comfort. and pray with us about a place to live!

thank you so so much!

Wow, looks like things are happening fast for you. I'll be praying as you guys work on such a quick, big move.
Living away from family and long-time friends is hard, but it's also very good in some respects. Our marriage and family has grown closer in so many ways. We've struggled with the distance and been very blessed with great local "family" friends at the same time, and I'm sure God has this in store for you too. :-)

Hurray for a job! And I will be praying for the packing and moving...that's hard. And the transition living away from family and friends. We are still in the middle of that transition ourselves.

oh wow...so quickly! isn't God fantastic though...His faithfulness in bringing a job to jonathan after all of your prayers about this very thing. definitely praying for you with the packing and finding a home and all of that...by the way...not sure if you know my friend wendi from blog-land...(www.miraculouschaos.blogspot.com)...but if you get a chance, you might go visit her. perhaps you might have some words of love and hope to share with her as she deals with a trial. i read her post and immediately thought of you...
