I have to say, that other than a deep feeling of peace about the move, I haven't come across anything that screams, "Go To Texas!" And that works for me too. Peace about a decision is a very big thing. Perhaps the biggest.
Now that the seriousness of the post is out of the way, I thought I'd share with you, some of the more precious and humorous "signs" that have occurred lately.
** The Calm One came home from work the other day with a quarter in his pocket that he didn't remember putting there (we NEVER carry any kind of cash - just sayin'). He pulled it out and turned it over. It was a state quarter - of Texas. No joke.
** We are waiting on our income tax refund to fix up the house a bit and so The Calm One can get a plane ticket to Texas and do some interviewing. The refund is a month overdue. Just as the two of us were bemoaning over the fact that things seemed stalled because of needing the money, we passed a church sign that read, ". . . though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come . . ." I am so not kidding.
** This one takes a little setting up, so hold on a bit. When we first told the chickadees about the possibility of moving we were in the truck and The Calm One told the kids, "I sure wish God put on a billboard, 'Move to Texas' or 'Stay in Ohio!' But God rarely works that way. But it'd be cool, wouldn't it?" Whirling Dervish asked what a billboard is and The Calm One told him, "It's a big sign on the side of the road that they use to tell people things."
I mentioned that the kids might want to pray about how they were feeling about a move. After a few moments of silence, Whirling Dervish piped up, "Daddy, I prayed and got put a sign in my heart that we should move to Texas!" Since then every day he has asked me, "Has God put a sign in your heart yet?" Sigh . . .
Counting it all signage as joy,
