I have been a little MIA this week. I have known something was a brewin' for the last 9 days. Biggest secret of my life, so far.
You ready to know it too? .....

One of the stations in Oklahoma City, has been in contact with MY husband for a potential job oppurtunity there. We have been praying big prayers this summer that some kind of door would open for us. Everything going on with my brother has really been hard on me, and I just needed to be in Oklahoma. We first got contacted a week ago last Thursday,(moments after my last post I might add!) and I knew that this oppurtunity was different than the others. We decided to hold it in because we didn't want to have another potential job come to the table- get our hopes up(everyone's hopes up)-and get them crushed like they have before. But, I just knew this would be different. It was too clear that it was a God thing for me to doubt it for even for a second. The timing is perfect, the job is perfect, everything around it is perfect.

It is clear that this is the path that God has laid out for us, and you bet your bottom dollar we are not doubting it for a second. We are following with sprinting legs and huge open hearts. Jeremiah 29:11 says "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." About a month ago I put that specific bible verse on my side bar on my blog. This verse has been really weighing on my heart since I heard about my brother's cancer. Little did I know the true power in that verse and how relevant it would be in my life. It just makes me smile from ear to ear writing all of this. This day, August 2nd 2010, exactly one month from the day we learned my brother has cancer, we found out that we are moving back home! OMG! It's still not real!

I am SO thankful for this day and am so proud to announce that my husband is the newest member of the KFOR Sports Team at News Channel 4 in Oklahoma City! It's the number one rated station in the city, and the best sports team too. We could not be prouder or any more thankful! We could not be more excited! Not only does Dylan have a job, but I will get to work at my old job and we both will be happy as can be! We both will start our new jobs on August 18th. (Which just so happens to be my mom's birthday! Coincidence? I think not.) This is REAL! I can't even handle my excitement. We're really truly moving back to Oklahoma!! :)
