letting go and letting God

for quite a while i've had something laid on my heart.  i've talked about it on the bloggie here and here.  it's something joe and i have discussed in the past but there were circumstances that just didn't make it possible at that time, insurance being a big one. 

over the years i've continued to pray about it and i've asked others to pray about it as well.  i've so listened closely to what the Lord was speaking to my heart.  i didn't want it to be a rash decision, i wanted to make sure it was the decision He wanted me to make.  whatever He asks of me, i want my answer to always be yes!  i want to become the woman God wants me to be.   

i knew this was going to be a hard decision that not everyone would agree with.  i also knew that some family members, even close ones, would not agree with this decision at all.  and i am truly sorry for that.  my decision is not meant as anything less than me following Gods path for my life. 

so, with all that said now on to the big reveal...joe and i have decided together through lots of late night talks and prayer that i will work for one more year, establish gypsy tree a little more and then i will retire and focus all my energy on my photography business and being a stay-at-home mama and wife.  i am so super excited about this new journey we are taking.  i can't say that i have every single detail worked out but i am trusting God.  i know that God is faithful. 

so if you could, please keep us in your prayers.  pray for His guidance, our faithfulness and clarity for the decisions.  thanks ya'all!!

out for now
