    The Austins in Austin

    By caustin | November 21, 2007

    Today, in our homeschool lesson, we were talking about the Pilgrims and their journey to a new world. We found we could really relate to journeying to a new world since we have found ourselves in Austin. This “New World” is BIG and it has brought us many new challenges and adventures in our first week. Jonathan loves his new job. The commute has ended up not being so bad since they have flex time at this new company. He works 7am-4pm–missing the rush hour traffic. We’ve enjoyed visiting the church that my brother and his wife have been attending (check it out at www.gatewaychurch.com). We’ve enjoyed lots of family time, which is why we moved out here to begin with. Jonathan and I are not working all hours of the day to make ends meet! Saturday, we enjoyed a day at this great park–Zilker Park–and then Sunday night, Jonathan and Noah were able to get tickets to a University of Texas basketball game–they had some connections 🙂 My brother and his wife have been so gracious in sharing their home with us until we are able to find a place of our own. Keep us in your prayers about finding a place and also about our house in Pensacola selling. We trust that God’s timing is perfect for all of those details. We continue to take one day at a time, though it is a struggle at times to not try to figure it all out. God has been showing me the way to a new, transformed heart of thankfulness as we approach the Thanksgiving holiday. It is a heart that is thankful in ALL things, a heart that looks beyond out-of-control circumstances to find peace. God has shaken things up for us quite a bit lately. He’s pushed us out of our comfort zone and challenged us to dream His dreams for our family. God thank you for not giving up on my doubtful and at many times ungrateful, heart.smaustinsforweb1.jpg
