In case you've been wondering where the heck I have been lately, let me give you a little update. A couple weeks back I posted a very cryptic message asking for thoughts and prayers but wasn't ready to talk about what was going on. Well, here we are almost three weeks later and I would love to fill you all in--- a few Friday's back Jonathan found out that his company was closing several clinics nationwide and his was one of the ones getting cut. We were shocked and devastated and mostly confused. This was the job that we prayed and prayed about, and if any of you keep up with me regularly here you will know that I wrote a lot about it, and so many of YOU prayed he would find the perfect position. So when he did, we knew it was a major blessing, straight from God. When we found out it was going away, a mere 6 months after taking it--- and after purchasing a home (hello mortgage payment) and being three months away from having a baby (hi, insurance) we were dumbfounded.
Fast forward to today: Jonathan's job ends Friday. Thankfully, he has found temporary PT employment. So basically, he is "traveling" like we did when we moved around, except the job is in our current town so we can stay put and the insurance will cover me immediately so we don't have to worry about having the baby. It's a huge answer to pray because during that first week we (okay, mostly me) were a little panicked over the situation. This still isn't a permanent solution and we are continuing to pray and seek and listen to where the Lord wants Jonathan and our family. For now though, we are rejoicing over the fact that while so many people in this country get layed off and sit without work for weeks and years, Jonathan managed to secure a position and will not have an lapse of employment. That is pretty amazing and we trust that the Lord has a bigger plan for us in all of this.
Besides dealing with that stress over the past weeks, I have been growing my what feels like the hour with this baby. Yesterday he weighed just under three pounds and at 28weeks I am officially into my third trimester. We are working hard on finishing the updates to the house before he gets here and that has been taking much of my free time. I love this blog of mine, but its such a busy season of life and I feel like enjoying my days (and naps!) has taken precedent over this space.
ALSO, I have been shooting some amazing things lately. Above is a little taste of a styled bridal shoot and everything about it was perfection. I have handfuls of sessions to share and hope to get caught up within the next week here! Tomorrow I will be blogging some photos of our home renovations so far and some randoms so you will really get a glimpse as to what our lives have been like lately!
I hope everyone is having a fantastic Wednesday!
