When I started this blog it was to keep in contact with friends and family, letting them know about our move from LA to LV. Well, now it seems that the reverse is happening. Just after Christmas, Tony came to me and asked how I felt about moving back to PV. My first reaction was "Why would we do that? God wants us to move forward, not backwards." So he dropped the subject, but it was too late...the seed had been planted. Over the next couple of months God began working on my heart. Before I knew it, I was longing to be back in PV too. Tony and I began talking about the possibilities, weighing out the pros and cons, and really praying/seeking what God's will was for our family. Two years ago we were absolutely sure He was leading us here to Las Vegas. (And we know that He did bring us here for a purpose). However, to everything there is a season. And the more we prayed, the more we felt our season here was coming to a close.
So we decided to sneak away for the weekend, just the 2 of us. We went back to PV for a couple of days. We wanted God to use this time to confirm if He wanted us to move back or if we were just homesick. We didn't tell our friends the real reason we were coming over. We wanted to make sure our decision would be God-centered, not based out of emotions.
From the minute we got off the plane, it was as if God was welcoming us home. The entire weekend was filled with multiple signs saying "This is where I want you." We both felt it; so we began to share the news of our possible return with our friends, asking above all else for their prayers. As the news spread, our friends seemed to be as excited about the possibilities as we were. We returned to Las Vegas literally on a cloud!
We are still in the early stages of this new adventure. So we don't know any details yet. What we do know is that we have a peace about this and that we are seeing God open doors, preparing the way, one day at a time. And although we are anxious to get back, we remain content to wait on His perfect timing.
