Population: almost 3 million in the Greater St. Louis area
St. Louis is our big news. We got an email this morning that told us our new home will be in St. Louis. I screamed when I found out - screamed with excitement. I'm excited about this move.
Life doesn't actually change for a while. We won't be moving for another 6-7 months, but it is nice to know where we will move. For the next 5-6 months, though, we will still be focused on our life here and the people here and what God has for us here and especially on our upcoming Israel trip!
But now that we do know, the planner in me will begin to research the area, the dog parks, the shopping, the jobs, the housing, and everything else. As excited as I am and as much as I do like visiting big cities, living in one is sort of intimidating.There will be so much to discover!
A new chapter of our life will begin. It seems so real today. Though the planning has taken months, it didn't seem real until today. Until we found out that we are moving to a place that neither of us knows anything about. A place that God has been preparing for us. A place where God will be using us in other's lives.
St. Louis, here we come!
As you know, I try to keep our blog semi-annonymous. If you would like more details about the move, call me, email me, or facebook me. I'd love to share!
