The hardest part of this transition is the not knowing what is coming around the corner.
Truth is that retirement alone is not enough to live on, so my husband has been actively looking for another job, putting in applications, going for interviews etc.
I could tell you that I'm freaking out, but I really am not, and the reason being that I know we are doing our part and God will provide. He provides for the birds, why would he not provide for us?
Doesn't make it easier when you are having to learn a new way of life, a new budget, going from two payments a month to one etc. It's all a big adjustment we are going through, but thankfully we have a lot of faith in the Lord and in each other.
My husband went for a few interviews this week and he has a few more coming up next week.
It's all in the Lord's hands.
Even though this is a huge change for us, I have learned so much and continue to every day. I could look at it as a terrifying experience, but I choose to look at it as an exciting time, a way to start over and do things differently.
I'm sure there will be days where I may feel a little overwhelmed, and that's ok, as long as I keep reminding myself that "God will provide".
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. - Philippians 4:19
