It's been quite a few months since I've mentioned much related to my personal life but I now have a delicious piece of news to share with you all!
First, a word from Jane Austen:
(because no post is quite the same without her!)
"Emma," said Mr. Knightley presently, "I have a piece of news for you. You like news -- and I heard an article in my way hither that I think will interest you."
"News! Oh! yes, I always like news. What is it? why do you smile so? where did you hear it? at Randalls?"
- Jane Austen's Emma, Chapter 21
"I have something to tell you, Emma; some news."
"Good or bad?" said she, quickly, looking up in his face.
"I do not know which it ought to be called."
"Oh! good I am sure. I see it in your countenance. You are trying not to smile."
- Jane Austen's Emma, Chapter 54
I love those quotes and they just popped into my head on this occasion. :)
And now back to my news! :)
|Yes Emma, it is exciting news!|
Back in February my dad followed the Lord's leading and applied for a computer job with Answers In Genesis ministries in Kentucky. After quite a lengthy interview process, and lots of prayer from us, my dad was offered the job! Although our family had been talking about the possibility of moving throughout the process we tried not to get too excited because we weren't at all sure dad would get the job. We were totally blow away when they told us and so excited! This is such a huge blessing from the Lord and the blessings have continue to pour in since dad officially accepted the job on Monday.
In the month ahead there will be a lot to do with packing here, finding a house there and moving. But we know God is faithful and will continue to help and guide us as we make this move. Right now we're planning to leave Maine the weekend of June 9th, travel to Kentucky and unload our moving truck during the following week.
So, what this means for me and Old-Fashioned Charm is that posts will be less frequent than usual as I help my family with all the busyness of a move. But never fear, I will by no means be disappearing from the blogging world, I'll still be around commenting on other people's blogs and posting here when I'm able to.
I'd really appreciate your prayers for me and my family over the next several weeks. Thanks for letting me ramble on a bit. I just had to share this delightful piece of news with all of you! :)
A very happy May everyone!
Very Truly Your's,
