It's All Working Together for GOOD.

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God." (Phil. 4:6)

That verse kinda describes the past couple of years of our lives as we've sought God's plan for us. The past couple of years have been racked with anxiety, uncertainty, frustration, and often the lack of thanksgiving and even prayer. And because of that, God has included this verse in His Word to repremand us, teach us, grow us, change us.

"And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." (Phil. 4:7)

Peace is the result of leaving it all before the Lord. By the grace of God, we've been able to leave it all before Him and have been blessed with peace concerning this huge coming change in our lives...

Derek was officially offered a job in Elkhart, Indiana. We've decided to accept it. We will be saying goodbye to our first home, the only home we've known since we've been married. Where we've built our little family. We'll be *tearfully* leaving Scranton behind in July.

We'd appreciate all your prayers as we transition. Between now and July 16 we are going on vacation, packing the house, giving birth to our second child, finding a house in Elkhart, and moving 600 miles away. Lots to do!

I love being a mom!


Yesterday my father-in-law thanked me for being a part of the family and raising his grandkid(s). Honestly I couldn't help but think how ridiculous it seemed that he was thanking me! I am the one who is grateful to be a part of the Jacobs family and be able to raise my beautiful, wonderful, amazing gifts from God. I am so incredibly undeserving and blessed. Thank You, Father, for blessing me with the opportunity, responsibility, gift of being a wife and a mom!

Since I've already gone on and on about how much I love my child and how wonderful it is to be a parent in past posts, I'll just leave you with this Mother's Day picture...

PS - Stay tuned for some serious and important updates on our life...
