There and back again

I can't believe it's been so long since I posted. Two major-ish things have happened.

1) I got a promotion at work: Associate Editor. That's a loooong way from a temporary part-time copy editor covering someone's maternity leave. So along with the new title comes new responsibilities. I'm loving every second of it. I get to write and edit, stretching my creative muscles to make things read better.

2) My wife and I left our church. We'd been there for nearly 6 years, but we've recently felt God telling us it was time to move on. So we're searching, and trusting, and full of hope. We visited the local Wesleyan church, and liked it immmediately. And apparently the Squirt made quite an impression on the nursery staff. We'll visit again next week, and delve deeper into who and what this church is. It would almost seem too easy to find a church home so easily. Especially after it took us nearly a year to find the one we just left. It's hard to even write those words.

So both of these big changes have been a lesson in trust and patience for me. I say I trust God. Then I get to prove it by taking steps of faith. And if he's guiding our steps, we'll be in just the right place. And safe.
