The Waiting Game

For those of you who know me, you know that I am not a patient all.  I blame this on my mother (sorry Lou Ann).  We are both very "lets do this now" type people.  That is one of the things that is so funny about the path God is leading Chris and me on.  It is the reason the title of this blog is "Be Still".  Minor League baseball is not a normal life.  Do not get me wrong, I am unbelievably thankful for this journey and I wouldn't want it any other way.  However, this lifestyle is not ideal for my lack of patience.  In other words, God led me on this path to teach me patience and total reliance.  I'm a work in progress.

God is teaching me to "Be Still" and be patient.  Spring Training breaks camp April 1st.  That means a week from tomorrow Chris will be flying to most likely either San Jose, California or Augusta, Georgia.  There are other options though.  When do we find out where? It could be a few days before, but probably the day before.  Guess when I wanted to know....a month ago.  Do we know where we are living next week? Its kind of hard to find an apartment when you do not know which city you will be in...  Again, I am learning to "Be Still".  It would be so easy for me to stress, freak out, and cry (okay, I won't lie there have been a few tears).  Thankfully, God is teaching me to rely on Him and "not worry about tomorrow because tomorrow will take care of itself".  Patience has always been a weak spot for me.  I am thankful that God chose this path to finally teach me that I have to have patience.  

I'll update yall as soon as we know where we will go next.  Augusta would be close to home, but San Jose would be a really cool place to live!  There are definitely pros and cons to both.  Thanks for reading!
