Working 40+ hours a week, spending the spare time I have with my husband and trying to keep myself healthy and happy… This has been me for the last couple weeks.
We have made our BIG move to a little island in the middle of the pacific ocean, Maui. It is beautiful here and I am enjoying every minute of it, even working my new job. We knew when we moved here we wanted to enjoy the islands beauties and all of the wonderful things magazines and vacationers had told us. We also knew we needed to get to business, we aren’t just taking a ten day trip, we are staying. So, neither of us ever being away from our families nor living anywhere besides Oregon, we knew we would have a lot of stress and change to adapt to. Here is just a tid-bit nutshell version of what’s happened since we’ve arrived in paradise 🙂
First and foremost, the Lord has blessed us with EVERYTHING we needed. A wonderful couple we had never met before (friends of friends) picked us up from the airport and took us to Jenny’s house (their friend) who gave us a place to stay for a few days while settling in to the island life. She was the sweetest lady and was a great host with a beautiful house and welcoming children. We explored the south side of Maui (Kihei), went to a couple beautiful beaches and basked in the warm tropical sun. Right away we needed to get a car, because we only had the rental for a few days. Sure enough the Lord brought us a wonderful car for an amazingly low price. A week into our stay we heard the house we would be moving to had become available, so off we went from Jenny’s beautiful house to upcountry Maui. (This is the house we are in now and will continue to stay.) It’s beautiful upcountry. A little more rainy and windy, but the views are spectacular!! Beyond breathtaking!! In the midst of this I had applied to a job and once we got to our new house, I got a call for the interview and landed the job..Score! Praise the Lord again! So I am working at a hectic, little, holistic health clinic about twenty minutes from our house in a cute little cowboy town.
As you can see, everything has come together and everything is working beautifully. All I can say is the Lord is good. He provides even when we think what’s needed is to much.
We also have joined a great church called Calvary Chapel South Maui, we are learning so much from pastor Charles and have enjoyed every service.
The wonderful couple we live with can also attest to the great blessings of the Lord. We are blessed to have them in our lives and to be able to experience this journey with them.
I really hope to be able to share more of our journey, because we are learning so much and being blessed beyond measure… Why wouldn’t I want to share what the Lord is doing in our lives?
