I just want to start out by thanking everyone for all the prayers on our behalf. They were felt and greatly appreciated. As most of you know Jason has been looking for a more permanent job for many months now. We both graduated in May and were ready to move on to see what the future held for us. After many phone interviews and a few in person interviews and a few rejections....we finally got the call we were hoping to hear from. We went to Arlington, Virginia for what we thought was a job offer for the Arlington County Human Resources Compensation Analyst position, but it ended up being a more in depth in person interview. They told Jason that they would let him know their final decision in a week.
We were both a little distraught but we went apartment hunting just in case it worked out. We found many we liked and decided we wanted to live more in the suburbs. The cities down there are a little faster paced than we are used to. On August 29th Jason got a phone call saying they wanted to offer him the job. He called me and I was in shock, and I said that we should say YES!!!! So, we did and feeling very blessed by our Heavenly Father. He really does listen to our prayers and loves each one of his children. Many times answers do not come right away but they will come in God's timing.
Unfortunately the apartment we really liked had bad reviews. So we found another one and Jason's mom went to check it out and said it was nice. So, we put in an application and they are saving it for us. We will be moving out of our apartment here in Murfreesboro, TN on Sept 17th. We started packing and I am having mixed emotions. I am excited to see what the future holds but Murfreesboro has been a good place for us and it will be hard to leave but with faith I am moving forward. We are packing up a U-haul and taking it to a depot in Nashville where we will be packing a pod that the company will ship for us. Jason and I will drive separately but following each other in our cars to Virginia and do the same thing there.
This should be a fun adventure. It will be an experience but I am so grateful that we have a full time job and will be closer to family. Thanks again for all your prayers and kind words.
