mixed emotions...

I can tell you the news now, on Thursday, my Sean was named the interim head coach of the cross country and track at the university he is employed by. This is after the head coach resigned, and I have to admit while I should be happy, both of us are a little scared, a little anxious, a little nervous. And the floodgates of all the emotions I have towards the man who resigned will not be broken here, he is gone that is all I can and the relief has not kicked in yet. 
But I will say this, God has answered another prayer of change in our life, and while we were praying for change, it is hard to accept the change He has provided, ironic isn't it?
I'll leave you with these photos about a morning date we went on last Monday on Labor Day. It involves bikes, donuts and coffee at the place that is our favorite and is the spot of our very first day. :-)

love my cruiser bike


what a cutie!

breakfast of champions...

Our first date spot, we met at 7pm and closed the place down
Any one have words of advice or encouragement for a wife that is scared, confused so I can get to the place where I should be completely happy with this new opportunity God has provided my husband, so I can be the wife that he needs through this period of transition?

I am excited for your family as your husband takes on this new role. I will be praying so much for your family as you transition! I always think the first year is the hardest at any new job-- but once you have been through that you are able to handle anything! Many prayers for you both!!

Oh Meg, I hope your weekend takes a turn for the better. You both deserve it. I don't know a lot, but all I do know is that if you just stick together as a team and believe in the love that you both have for each other, God and the rest will take care of itself. I'm sure he needs you right now just as much, because it's scary for both of you. I'll keep thinking of you both! For now though, have a lovely weekend!

I promised my husband long ago that I'd always be optimistic about our future. Change is good and as long as you have each other, you'll make it work.

I understand how you feel. I only know you through the blogosphere, but I can tell that you are one smart woman. Take some calm breaths and know that this is God's plan, let him take the control and your worries. It's such a blessing to have such a merciful God who ADORES taking care of his children. This is a blessing from Him. You guys will be/do great with this change. I just know it. :)

Allison said...

I don't have any advice but to try and stay positive & find the positive in the situation. Try not to focus on the scary part. I will pray for you guys!!

What an exciting opportunity for your family! I can relate to your anxiety about this change. But don't worry, you are both going to be great! Congratulations!

Allison said...

First of all a bike ride to the donut shop is a fantastic idea and second...change is always hard even if it is what we want. Praying for an easy transition for you both!

Brandi said...

I am very excited for you and your husband but I understand this is a transition that you will have to get used to but I know that god will never give you anything you cant handle. Keep your head up and stay positive, the best has yet to come!

Laura Elizabeth said...

I don't have any wise words but you guys look pretty darn great. Breakfast of donuts?? You guys are going to be ok :)

I'm not a wife, but I will tell you a quote that gets me through a lot of tough times...

The will of God won't lead you where the grace of God can't keep you.

It's hard; but I think in worried and confused times, you just have to trust that you are living out God's plan. I suppose your job as a wife is to pray for your husband and your family and make sure that your family lives knowing that God has a plan for you. Congrats on great things in your future!!

Change can be such a scary thing, but I think you just have to embrace it. God will lead you the way you are supposed to go. Just lean on Him to provide you both strength emotionally and physically. You are such an inspiration to us all. I know you will be able to get through this time. I know I live on the other side of the US, but I am here for you if you need anything! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! I love your cruiser bike :)

Jess said...

Ok first, those donuts look super yummy! Those are one of the first things on my list to eat after our 30 Day Challenge!
Second, change is always scary, even if it is meant towards bigger and better things in life. Just remember everything happens for a reason, even if we don't always see the reason right away.

Have a happy and restful weekend!!!

ashley said...

i know change can be scary and stressful...so my only advice would be to take it easy on each other and on yourselves. Once you get through the transition period this will be your new normal :) by the way, you two are adorable!

God doesn't give you anything you cant handle. If he brings you to it, he will bring you through it.

Jenna said...

Wow- what an honor for your husband, Meg! Sorry I don't have any advice to give on the transition though. You're such a wise and introspective person; I'm sure you'll handle it well!

And I love the pictures from your morning date. Your bike is adorable and donuts were sprinkles are just lovely. Always.

I think the uncertainty of what new doors open can be scary but also exciting! It's providing a new path...new opportunity and that's what I would hang on to. It's all going to work out...maybe better than you imagined. Good luck with this next chapter! xo

Aimee said...

I read this quote today and I found it challenging as I am a "worrier"... "Worrying is meditating on thoughts that oppose Gods word."

Will be thinking of you both!

Mrs. Pancakes said...

Congrats! Change is always hard but God does not make mistakes! Enjoy this season HE has given you and the hubby!

Lauren said...

As creatures of habit, change is never necessarily fun...but I always remind myself that God has our best interest at heart and is going to do things that are better than we could ever even imagine! Good luck in this new season, I know it will be full of fun adventures!

Camylla Leonardi said...

How exciting!!! CONGRATS! and I love your morning date pictures! very sweet!

Amanda said...

Congratulations! I hope that you have embraced the change 100%! Love that picture of you on your bike and I'm thinking and praying for you during this time of change!

Laura said...

congrats, that is so exciting!!! and you look so cute on your cruiser!!!

Holly said...

Congrats to your hubby on the promotion! I can understand being scared and anxious about it, though. My advice would be to just go with the flow I guess. And maybe if you try to figure out exactly what you're scared and anxious about it will help you move past it--I know that helps me a lot because otherwise I'm just scared all the time about stuff!

Love your bike btw, and coffee and donuts...mmmmm :)

Christina said...

First of all...that's my kind of date. Bikes, coffee and donuts! yay!

It's very hard to watch from the sidelines when something changes that affects you that you have no control over. Just keep communication open and remind him that however things work out, that you always are behind him, cheering for him! I'm sure you'll be able to take good experiences from this change!

birdie to be said...

Sounds like an amazing opportunity! Congrats to you both! I know change is hard. Try to embrace it when you can! Roll with the punches and things will work out. xo

Huge donuts!! Life is so crazy sometimes! Keep trusting in God, he will direct you to the right paths! It's hard sometimes to be happy, content, supportive and down-right not scared sometimes when scarey things happen! I say be open about your fears as well as your excitement. You don't want to be feeling this way alone.
