Marc and I are asking for prayers as we are about to make a very important decision that will definitely affect the future of our family. Marc will finish his residency in ophthalmology in June after 8 years of training... a VERY long road we have been on, but so excited to see what lies at the end! We have been waiting for this for a very long time and it's just one of those things that hasn't seemed real. I've guess we've just been so comfortable and "safe" while Marc has been training and preparing for his career that "reality" of life after residency has just seemed so far off. Marc has been searching for a job as an attending ophthalmologist for about a year now and the time is almost here for us to make a decision. He has had several discussions/interviews with practices in various locations and a few job offers. This has been weighing heavily on our minds for several months now and Marc has just felt this huge burden on his shoulders. He wants to make the best decision for his family. We have been praying faithfully that we will be able to see God's call loud and clear. Signs have been pointing very strongly lately to where it is we think God is leading us and we're so thankful for that! We are continuing to learn that sometimes God's plans are different from our own... just a continuation of our learning experience of bringing Mason into this world. :)
Once this decision is made we will feel so much better and that stress will be gone only to be replaced with new stresses, anxiety of what the future holds, and most of all, excitement! So, we are asking for prayers during these next few days and months as we begin our new adventure together. I am so proud of my amazing husband for how he works so hard at being the best doctor he can be, while never once putting that before God and his family. He juggles so much each and every day yet his love for Mason and me just grows stronger. I fall more and more in love with him as I watch him be the father he is to our sweet baby.
I covet your prayers, support, and encouragement! I will post our news as soon as we find out what it is we're going to do. I feel so much comfort in knowing that God has been leading us through this decision-making process and will not leave us now. He is forever faithful!
Mad for Plaid!
