Home Sweet Dublin

The weirdest thing just happened. After dinner tonight, Lauren told me that her hours at work are being cut to where she will only be part-time, 3 days a week, until September.  Also, she is pregnant (I found this out a couple of weeks ago), so by the time she would go back to full-time she would be out on maternity leave, because the baby is due in October. Basically that means they don’t need an au pair anymore, because Daniel will go to pre-school 3 days a week here in Virginia.

For the past 2 weeks, I have had this strange longing for Dublin, to actually live there and not just keep visiting. I didn’t expect to like Dublin, much less love it. Every time I go back I love it more. So for the past 2 weeks I have been praying that if God wants me to go back, he will make a way. I wasn’t going to quit this job, even though I wanted to at times. Honestly, I didn’t expect God to answer my prayer, because I wasn’t sure my desire to be in Dublin was only my desire. I am going to miss Daniel very much, and miss the quietness and security of this house and my own room, but my heart feels so light and free right now. Lauren felt so bad when she talked to me, but her job situation is totally out of her control. They definitely aren’t kicking me out either. I can work next week if I want but I’m not sure what I will do yet.

Once again, I have no idea what kind of job I will get or where I will live, but if God provided once, He can provide again.

    YOU are amazing!
    I see God working in our lives SO similarly, growing us in the same ways on different continents. He is so good! And if I learned anything from these last few months, its that He does provide, just slowly, haha.
    You’re on my mind, lady. Miss & love you!
    XO, Rach
