celebrating the plunge

Yesterday, I shared this picture.



To celebrate.

The occasion?

Our last day on of depending us (i.e. Dave's last day on a payroll). For two months we chugged up the hill, knowing this day was looming. Yesterday we reached the top.

Today, we plunge down, falling on God's grace. It's a free fall that I know begins and ends cupped in God's hands. I'm not screaming nor is my heart is not in my throat (yet ;) and maybe this hill we've plunged over will be a short one. Regardless, the ride is bound to be one of twists and turns.

And the only way I can explain this absence of panic, this crazy peace, are the Words of the Father which quell the worries that try to niggle their way into my thoughts. The words whispered are trust and wait and do. not. fear.

Today we celebrate the plunge.

Celebrate with us?

You've been on my mind all morning, partly because I'm wearing one of your headbands. Then I got back to my computer and before I could head over here I was greeted with your comment over on my blog. Thank you :) I love how cyberspace builds these real, true, friendships. You and your family are in my prayers as the plunge begins! Hugs.
