Change

Wednesday, September 28, 2011

Grahm and I just made the biggest transition of our young lives. We're married now, forever attached to the other's hip. Is it weird that even after a month I still get really giddy at the idea that I'm Mrs. Roach??

Every day so far has been full of learning, growing, loving, and forgiveness. Transitioning from a Carper to a Roach has been the most rewarding and most challenging change, and we're loving every minute.

Soon we will have even more changes to embrace.

Next week Grahm has two interviews in San Antonio. I won't pretend that I understand the intricacies of these jobs enough to attempt explaining to y'all what he'll actually be doing. All I know is, it's a job that he would love (from what we know so far).

It will be a hard change for me, living in Texas, away from my friends and even farther from my family.
A huge comfort to us is that Grahm's parents live there, so we wouldn't be entering the longhorn state without knowing a few faces. We also heard of an excellent church to attend while we're living there.
It will be difficult, but I think we're both excited and nervous about the possibilities.

Please pray that the Lord would open the doors that need to be opened.

No matter what happens, no matter where we go...I know that my best friend will always be right by my side. And that is comfort enough to embrace just about any change that may come our way.

Moving away from home right after the wedding is scary, but it can also be so great! Also, I really like San Antonio. :)

By reading your posts, I feel like I am reliving my first year of marriage! My husband is a pastor, and therefore I knew we would have to move a lot, but I wasn't exactly prepared to trust in the Lord and his plans.

In the last year, I have moved five times, and this was terrifying for someone who lived in her hometown for 18 years. I didn't know a single soul, and as a pastor's wife, people don't really want to get close to you.

We made the move to Alice, Texas, near Corpus Christi, in May, and it was a bonding experience for us that I cherish. This was our first real move together, and we have absolutely no family down here.

It's still pretty lonely at times, but that is wonderful that you have family in San Antonio and a great church. Those things are important to adjusting. Even if the Lord calls you elsewhere, it's great to prepare yourselves to become a little family.

If your husband does get the job, feel free to give us a ring! We are only an hour and a half from San Antonio and would love to meet up with you!

Best of luck!

I can't think of anything more fun than being a newlywed.

I also can't think of anyone who doesn't like San Antonio.

Wishing you the best.

San Antonio is great! You would absolutely love it there if you move :)

We'll be praying for Grahm this week!
Change is always better when you don't have to do it alone. :-)

Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the web
the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while
people think about worries that they just
don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

Howdy this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code
with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I'd figured I'd ask.
Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?

My website goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours
and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
If you might be interested feel free to
send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you!
Fantastic blog by the way!

I do not comment, but I browsed a lot of responses here "Change".
I do have 2 questions for you if it's allright. Is it just me or do a few of the remarks look like they are written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing at other places, I'd like to
keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Could you list
of all of your shared sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page
or linkedin profile?
