T-minus 3 weeks

Well, our move to the "BIG D" is just around the corner and Jordan and I were talking the other night about things we will miss in Atlanta and things we are looking forward to in Dallas. Here are a few of those things:

1. Jalisco - The best Mexican restaurant of all time and the location of every important conversation Jordan and I have ever had.
2. Bank of North Georgia - The Best Place to Work in Atlanta. If you don't believe me, google it.
3. Small Group - 1 for 2 is not that bad! Give GroupLink a try people!
4. Georgia Tech - Even though we are the worst alumni ever, it was nice knowing we were less than 5 miles from the Rusty C.
5. Our Babies - Because we are living in married housing, we can't take our precious doggies Reese & Ellie. Thanks to amazing parental units they have new homes in Augusta & Valdosta.

1. Pei Wei - This will be the new spot of every future important conversation. YUM!
2. The Village Church - "Bringing glory to God through lives changed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ"...gotta love that!
3. Cooking - We will officially be on a "budget" which means time for me to learn how to cook! Jordan, I apologize in advance for my "attempts"! Just eat it with a smile please!
4. Married Housing - How fun to have your best new friends down the hall? I think? Hmm?
5. Friday Evenings - When the clock strikes 5:00 on Friday, I won't be getting in the car to go out of town. People come to me!!

A time for everything....

Ecclesiastes 3 says.....

There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven—
A time to give birth and a time to die;
A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.
A time to kill and a time to heal;
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
A time to weep and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn and a time to dance.
A time to throw stones and a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace and a time to shun embracing.
A time to search and a time to give up as lost;
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
A time to tear apart and a time to sew together;
A time to be silent and a time to speak.
A time to love and a time to hate;
A time for war and a time for peace.
What profit is there to the worker from that in which he toils?
I have seen the task which God has given the sons of men with which to occupy themselves.
He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart, yet so that man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end.

This is one of those seasons in life were everything seems to be changing. It is invigorating, and scary, and exciting all at the same time. I love that "He has made everything appropriate in its time". How great it is to rest in the knowledge that the Almighty has a plan, even when I don't?

Tomorrow marks one of those changes as I take my I.D. badge and enter Bank of North Georgia for the last time. I am so thankful for the 3 wonderful years that I have had with this amazing company and will miss all of my BNG family. However, I know there is a time for everything...a time to leave....a time to start again.

Dallas, Texas.....here we come!
