The only thing I can say about the past week is WOW.
Throughout Husby and my entire relationship, the Lord has blessed us in such unique ways. I'm not talking easy, run of the mill type blessings (though He has given us those, as well), I'm talking opening up the Heavens and dropping burning bushes in front of us! He has proven Himself in such astounding ways throughout our marriage that when we experience a new answer to prayer or obvious nudge from Him, we just look at each other and laugh.
He absolutely floors us.
I think He delights in doing the impossible for Husby and I. Just the other day, Husby said that He can just see God up there saying, "go ahead, guys ... do this, do that ... but you'll see ... I'm going to do something that will blow your mind." And boy, has He!
If I go into the full story of the past several months (and the past week) of our lives, you would be reading for hours. So, I will make it short and sweet. We have experienced so much confusion and stress over what Husby was supposed to do/choose concerning Residency. I've spoken about it a few times on here, but behind the scenes, in our real lives, we were in such turmoil ... not knowing what to do or where to choose. Husby was torn between three different programs and we had absolutely no idea where to go, what to choose and how to make his rank list. The problem was that EVERY program wanted him. He was woo'd and schmoozed like you can not imagine and that made things even more confusing.
Each program had it's own pros and cons. We did not know which pros outweighed the others and which cons were of the biggest concern. We went back and forth ... back and forth ... BACK AND FORTH between these three programs. We had absolutely no idea where God wanted us. We burned holes in our carpet from being on our knees. We simply wanted to be where the Lord wanted us. That's all there was to it.
Yesterday, the Lord did the impossible and so clearly in our living room laid out His perfect plan for us. The story is long and confusing unless you are familiar with the matches and Residency regulations, so I won't try to explain it here, but guys, He blew us out of the water. We just sat back and laughed as we praised Him. The way He works with us never fails to be nothing short of astounding. I wish I could express His goodness adequately, but I simply can't.
But, I will spend my life trying!
In short, Husby received an awesome Residency spot - from one of his top choices and the opportunity is just fantastic! Also, the spot will not require a move. Praise!! He will also be in a program with a ton of his friends that he has gone through Medical School with ... such a blessing to work with such a support system! I am so excited for this experience to start for him. I know he is going to rock this next three years of Residency - just like he has Medical School. I beam with pride for my man!! He is the most humble, amazing man I know. A solid rock.
We can finally breathe again, finally start on plans we have been putting off until we knew where we were going to be, and finally say that the Lord has done it again and praise Him for it! :)
Thank you to those who have prayed for us during this process. Your support and encouragement are invaluable. Praise Him with us today!
