Normal Schedule? What is that?!
So....Nate and I have been married now for a 1 year and 10 months (today actually!), we have lived in the same city for 2 years and 4 months, and we have been together for 5 years and 2 months.... yet we have NEVER had a normal schedule....
Nate has always worked "nights" (meaning start time of 1am-3am) and I have always had a job that required evening work hours...basically "two ships passing in the night" until the weekend...when we would enjoy 1 day of "normal" and then Sundays would be spent preparing for an early bedtime for Nate so that the midnight alarm clock could signal the start of another work week.
Nate has been with UPS for 5 1/2 years, and has always wanted to stay with them....but we have both been praying lately that if God really wanted us as a family to be somewhere else he would shut the door...Nate put his full time letter in for promotion as soon as he graduated, right before we were married...and we have been waiting ever since..
UNTIL NOW! He goes to driving school starting tomorrow...which means at least one week of "normal" (whatever that means) 8-6ish... and then who knows...
but Nate is one step closer to exactly where he wants to be...I am only hoping that it is everything he wants!
We are so very thankful for the Lord's provision in the past two years...He has a plan that is bigger and better than anything we can plan for, and I know that he will always take care of us...and HIS timing is best! :)
What can BROWN do for YOU? Does this mean I have a man in uniform?? ha! :)
