This morning @ 3:30 am Brandon set out on an adventure. He just landed in Orlando, Fl. He will be there for the next couple days at a work conference. He is staying at a beautiful resort. With a big pool and the sun. Actually I just got a picture text message from him. I guess he wanted to rub in the fact that he could see palm trees! Rude. :)
Brandon leaving was a lot harder than I thought it was going to be. We have only been married for a little over 4 months (136 days to be exact), but I have grown so close to him. He is my second half, and I love him more than I ever thought I could.
I have never been very good at goodbyes. It is something that my family has always struggled with, and this being the first time Brandon and I have been apart in 4 months... well, lets just say the goodbye this morning was not good. Packing the bag last night wasn't good. Talking about him leaving a week ago wasn't good. :) I might be a little dramatic! (Bran tells me this all of the time.) BUT it is only out of my love for him.
God is making us grow. He is forcing us out of our comfort zone in many ways. I have felt this way ever since I started this semester in school. In the past 4 months I have accomplished more in school than I ever thought I could. I have grown, and I do believe that God is showing us the path we need to take. We are waiting with patience(most days) as he slowly shows us the attitudes and the desires of our hearts that need to change. I know that we aren't ready to hear what God wants us to do. I think if he revealed our path to us now we would doubt and be afraid. The time is coming though. We will do big things.

This is completely new to me, but I want to use this blog to keep everyone posted on what is going on in Brandon and I's life and how God is moving in us everyday! Every week I see my husband grow more in love with Christ and it is such a blessing to know I have him as a support system. The week we went to a meeting on Monday night. We met with the May's and talked about the upcoming trip we are taking to Rome this December. God has clearly laid it on both of our hearts that Rome is a place in need and we both feel called to be there. The meeting excited us both, and we can't believe it is only 2 months away! The next couple weeks will be full of support letters being mailed, and many other fundraisers taking off! If you feel called to help us in anyway feel free to contact us @ firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to share the vision that God has put on our hearts!
