Decisions, Decisions

After living in Madisonville, KY for over 30 years, I made the move to Morehead, KY on January 1, 2010. My daughter, Katie lives here and I am only a 3 hour drive to my daughter, Alison's home. This was not an easy step for me to take but it was time for me to start a new beginning.

It took me well over a year to finally make the decision to move here. Katie was very encouraging and let me know that I was wanted here very much. That made me feel really good about the possibilities of moving. I knew deep inside that I was overdue for a fresh start but fear and hiding inside my comfort zone held me back from making a final choice.

I had prayed on and off about it. Sometimes not making the decision was my decision! The fall of 2009 started opening the doors to my move. God was answering prayers but I was hesitant to listen, to really believe. He was opening up doors of opportunities but there were time limits to it. I was scared. Was I doing the right thing?

I sat down late one evening and pulled out a notebook after a quick prayer. I drew a line down the middle to make 2 columns, pro and con. It didn't take much time to realize the pro side was spilling over while the con column appeared almost trivial. I read over it twice, made my decision and called Katie to let her know I would soon be living in Morehead. I was amazed on how simple, and easy it had become make this choice.

I am pleased with myself and the courage it took to make this move. God is good; I am blessed.
