We have been running circles around Texas seeing friends, family, and taking care of many miscellaneous errands. We are back in Belton and in the midst of enjoying our second full day in this house since arriving in Texas. I define a full day as waking up and going to sleep in the same place. It's the little joys.
Today, we were finally able to stop long enough to unpack our suitcases. Unpacking is tricky when you are not at a final destination. Rearranging is a more accurate description. Winter clothes we had with us in Israel were sorted into separate bags from clothes that are more useful in the Texas heat. Of course, I have to keep out a couple long-sleeves to keep from freezing in this crazy air-conditioned state. Brrrr!
Though we remain unsure of what our long-term plans will be, several opportunities have presented themselves over the past few days. A few of these would allow Geoff and I to work together, which suits us just fine. Having been together working side-by-side for so long we really hate the idea of going separate ways each day in pursuit of different goals, works, etc. Sometimes this is nice, but we have learned to work well together and our unique skill sets so complement one another that I can't imagine not working side-by-side with Geoff anymore.
With all the running from town to town, house to house, family to family, and evaluating the smorgasbord of possibilities before us - we are exhausted. But so thankful. Opportunities are wonderful to have. Seeking GOD's direction on where we go next can be a stressful process but we are doing our best to relax and remember that He's got this. Taking each day one step at a time.
Spinning circles isn't all bad. For some symbolic relaxation we took my parents new "toys" out for a literal spin around the lake tonight. What a way to be.
