I'm so tired of only posting about sad things. I'm actually so tired of being sad.
I realized today that Max and I have good things happening that I haven't shared. I've mentioned that Max is a pastor in the Methodist church. The Methodist church works under an appointment system. Basically, it's an itinerant system where you are called and sent where you are needed. This can be a stressful process for a pastor's wife with a career of her own.
He has been serving a small church about 35 minutes from my work for 4 years. It's been a great church with wonderful people. But he is ready for something new and I am beyond ready to live in the same town that I work.
So, we are moving! You never really know what will happen when you put yourself out there for a move. Sometimes, they have no regard for the partner's job or the family's needs. We are lucky though. Max will be appointed to the Wesley Foundation, the Methodist campus ministry at the campus I work. He will do worship and outreach there and will actually supervise student interns and train them in serving 4 small churches in the area.
This is such a great combination for his skills and gifts and I am so excited for him. There will definitely be stressful points as we adjust. We will be moving in mid-June and that is a crazy time for me. I work with freshman orientation so my work days are approximately 20 hours long during the summer. But, I've done pretty well to think past the stress and focus on the end result.
So, just wanted to share some good news. We're excited!
