Last week Erik started his last semester of college! I think it's safe to say we are more than a little excited about this. By the end of April he will have his diploma and we will be able to begin a new chapter in our lives.
This season in our life is very exciting, but right now there is so much we don't know. The excitement over almost being done with school can quickly give way to fear.
We've both been struggling over the What ifs. What if we can't get a job right away? What if we can't sell our house and we need to move? If we move, how are the kids going to handle it? And for that matter, how are we going to handle it? Oh and there's also the small matter of expecting our fourth baby a month after graduation! I think anyone would be stressed.
In my heart, though, I know God will take care of us. Honestly I don't know if that means Erik will land the "perfect" job the day after graduation, or if that means we're going to have to wait awhile for any kind or employment. I know what I would prefer, but only the Lord knows what's best for us and what we can handle.
And at the end of the day, despite all our fears, the truth that God is in control of everything is where we put our trust.
