A year ago yesterday, we started our lives in northern VA.
3 weeks later, my father passed away, and 2 weeks after that, we moved into a rented townhouse.
We still don’t have complete clarity as to why God brought us here, nor do we have steady employment. Despite that, I am still 100% convinced God is up to something amazing.

How can I be so convinced?
Because I am pregnant. Not in the typical sense, though.
I am pregnant with a dream.
God has stirred something up in me, and I’m even more excited to see what our 2nd year here holds.
Above all else, I deeply trust Him.
I asked my 6 year-old son what he learned about in church today. He learned about the Israelites crossing the Jordan River into the Promise Land. I asked him if they talked about the Jordan River being at flood stage, and what that meant for the Israelites – how scary that would be.
I blogged two and a half years ago about stepping into your Jordan. A year ago, we stepped into ours, trusting that the Promised Land was on the other side. We are still in the throes of labor, the flood stage, birthing this dream God has given us.
We are still waiting, still trusting. It’s been quite painful at times, but full of anticipation.
Thank You, Lord, for this adventure that is life with You!
What Jordan do you need to step into today? What frightening step do you need to take?
