It's Been A While

I know. A lot of you are probably wondering what has happened to the Dail family. We have been trying to adjust to life in Indiana. It took a while to get things organized at our new place. When we moved back in March, there were a lot of family events coming up that kept us busy. Which we didn't mind. Then, J turned one so we had to prepare for that. Then he learned how to walk. :) It has been crazy ever since! He is a week shy of being 19 months old now! We have enjoyed our life with him. It has been fun to teach him. (But, that is for another post.)

It is winter now. I guess I forgot how cold Northern winters can be. We can't seem to shake being sick. I guess we're not used to putting on heavy coats. Sometimes we forget that we aren't living in sunny Florida anymore. (Go ahead. Laugh all you want.) We keep passing our sickness around to each other--or we just can't get enough rest to get better. I don't know. But we can't wait for Spring! If you don't hear from us until then--we went into hibernation mode.

It's a Crazy Life!

So much of this post will be copy and pasted from my other blog ( since I REALLY have no time to write two blog posts right now. I promise to write more blogs in the future for our dear family and friends to read.

So time has come and gone since I last was able to blog. Things have been insane around here. I read a quote a few weeks back that sums up the very thing that we have been trying to learn for about a month: Patience is more than endurance. A saint's life is in the hands of God like a bow and arrow in the hands of an archer. God is aiming at something the saint cannot see, and He stretches and strains, and every now and again the saint says--'I cannot stand anymore.' God does not heed, He goes on stretching till His purpose is in sight, then He lets fly. Trust yourself in God's hands. Maintain your relationship to Jesus Christ by the patience of faith. 'Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him,' -Oswald Chambers.

For a few years, we have been praying for Jeremy to find a new job. At first his search was just in the area and then, when he couldn't find a job, we broadened the search to Florida. After the birth of our son, we decided to search in North Carolina and Indiana where our families live.

Jeremy almost had a job in Raleigh, NC and we were so close to moving there but that didn't work out. When Raleigh didn't work out, we tried to find a larger apartment to rent in Clearwater. We found the perfect place. A quiet condo with 24 hour security. We would feel safe enough to have Jack there. We were so excited and made plans to move and sign paper work and everything. A couple of weeks before we were supposed to move, Jeremy found out that his job would be giving pay cuts. We were devastated. What was God trying to do??

Little did we know, God was working out every detail according to His plan--not ours. A few weeks went by and we were told about a job up in Indiana near where my family lives. We were sure that it would not work out. Jeremy went through many interviews with the company in a period of weeks. Each one seemed to be getting better and better. Finally, on Monday (March 5th), they told Jeremy that they wanted to hire him. Jeremy said that he would like to visit the company before officially saying he'd take the job. So, we were Indiana bound that following Wednesday. He had an on-site interview on that Thursday and agreed to take the position. So, we will be moving to Indiana in a week and a few days!

We are excited about this adventure that the Lord is taking us on and thrilled that we get to do it together! It will be wonderful to see our families more often. We will miss the friends that we have made in Florida and are very thankful that we have Facebook to keep in touch! We might even take vacations to Clearwater! We know our way around . . . why not?? :o)

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we scurry about these next few weeks. When we get settled, I promise to blog more often. Since we'll be in a bigger place, I will be doing more crafts that I find on Pinterest. I will share as often as I can. See you in Indiana!!
