peace in the unknown

{look how big this babe is getting lately...:-/}

Early last week, we learned that the future we had planned for ourselves here in Milwaukee could potentially come to an end quicker than expected. That news was confirmed on Friday as Tim sat in a meeting and learned that Milwaukee was no longer continuing the position Tim needs to complete his three-year rotational program with CAT.

Our world...came crashing down.  I have loved living here. It has felt like home since the day the moving truck left our belongings strewn all over the house and lawn.

My initial reaction to the news was anger. That anger turned to confusion. That confusion to sorrow. And that sorrow finally converted to peace after much prayer, meditation and study. Although I desperately wanted to feel peace, it was also the last thing I wanted to feel because it was just so much easier to be angry at the whole situation.

Now I sit totally perplexed as to what to do for me and my family, and I am completely filled with peace about the whole dang thing. How is it possible to have peace in the unknown? It's the strangest feeling, but I'm grateful for it. I don't know what will happen next year, but I am certain that everything will be just as it should be.
