Biggest News of all!

Wow! I can hardly believe that I am writing this post. I feel like every time I get on here I have a huge announcement! However, other than getting married and the birth of my children, this is the biggest news of all! For any blog friends who don't know, I am Canadian and grew up in Canada. Well, the Lord has put it on our hearts to move to the area I am from and just very recently have felt called to go now. It is a huge leap of faith for us but we have such peace about it because we know that it is what we are supposed to be doing right now. In the last week we have seen so many miraculous things fall into place. In all of life's uncertainties, there is is something so amazing about trusting in God who loves you and then watching His plan unfold.

We are moving to Canada!!!!!! I still can hardly believe it! With my husband being American, there is much paper work to sort out. Last week, I went to Canada, got a job, started on the paper work and now I am back packing up my house! We are moving on Saturday and would really appreciate your prayers that the transition would go smoothly. Also, please pray for our Church. I know that God is going to bring them an amazing Pastor who will take this church and community to an amazing new level. Still, the heart ache is nearly unbearable with having to say good-bye. Good thing I know that I know that I know that in a blinking of an eye we will be together again in eternity! My time playing on the worship band with John and Lucy and the rest of the team has been like a lil' slice of heaven and it's so hard for me, so so hard for me to see that come to an end. So far, I am looking at it is more of a pause. *tissue please*. I love what we were reminded of on Sunday. There will be times in this life of having a broken heart but Jesus came for the broken hearted. I know that He will help us all through the times of sadness and I also know that He has exciting things in store for each of us!

In a nut shell, there is a lot going on right now and I am writing this from my iPad! Sorry I don't have anything crafty to share but I will be back at it in the last week. I will say that I've been getting some happy emails from magazines requesting stuff this week so that has been fun! And, last week Paper Crafts Magazine features one of my cards on their blog. You can see it here. It has been published in their new recent issue called Practical Solutions for Paper Crafters.

Thank you so much for sticking with me through this journey and massive amount of posts with announcements. I didn't even see this one coming but the Lord knew and He is control. I give all that I do and all that I am over to Him.

I know that you will be happy and that everything is going to be just fine. I am sad that you are moving even further away - silly I know! and I am sooo grateful for wonderful phone service and skype. Those are are my needs taken care of right there and then :) Enough of me though - you have a wonderful family and I wish you all nothing but the best on this exciting adventure. Here's to wishing you safe and happy travels and to us visiting Canada in the very near future!
