It’s Hard

My friends Justin and Trisha Davis asked if I would be willing to guest post on their blog. I happily obliged because I adore the Davises and there aren’t many things I wouldn’t do for them. But it has been a little difficult to find the discipline to get the post written. Why?  Well, because the topic they asked me to blog about is “transition” which I feel like is all I have been talking about, all I have been blogging about, and all I have been living. Candidly, “transition” has me a little exhausted.

It’s hard, you know?

Waking up in a new apartment, in a new city, in a new state, in a new culture, throwing on new clothes {the weather and the casual Orange County atmosphere necessitate}, heading into a new job with new co-workers and a new boss, and escaping in the evening to grab a quick dinner at a new restaurant before going to a new small group at a new church.

  • Miss Lindsey…I just came home from 13 months abroad and I have to say I have lived this post…so much. Coming home to new…everything and getting ready to move again! I love that you write about KNOWING the transition is all for God’s glory but that it’s still hard. Because it’s true. Just because it’s for God’s glory doesn’t make the minute to minute fears or flashes of homesickness go away, but my does it make it worth it :). I’m in the midst of learning that and wanted to let you know you had a sister-in-the-spirit who is living it with you :).
