Pink Happy Thoughts First Steps towards the Big Move

It has been a month ago since my last post. Somehow my days are not long enough to cram everything in.

Since April this year, I have been in a tug of war mentally and emotionally ... of course labelling it spiritually ... about moving to Sydney to join my son and his lovely new wife. I guess I was hoping God to somehow give me a thunderbolt message with the proverbial 'Monty Python' pointing hand and finger, and the sky ablaze with the words, "GO YE!" .... hey, I made enough mistakes for everyone who happens to read this and smiles, I just want to have nothing but God's will in my life.

Certainly, I do not advise others to go through all these contortions of wishing, dreaming and hoping and yet in the same breath pushing it all out of my mind, just in case it's not God's will. What I would say is, rest in Him and He will guide you for sure ... listen to the still small voice, or even His 'voice' coming though a package least expected. Just relax and let God be God. His will be done.

Now would I take my own advice?????

Anyway, I am taking a big bold step: I am embracing the first conceptual 'toes-into-the-water' towards moving from London, UK to Sydney.

Well, I thought, why not add a pink 'Opera House' for this exciting new direction, and post it in Beverly’s Pink Saturday which she hosts at "How Sweet The Sound" . Please do make sure that you read all the other wonderful contributions!



This is clearly not a picture I have taken. Here's the original.








So, here you have it. There appear an unbelievable and insurmountable amount of obstacles, especially concerning the immigration into Australia. But God will provide a way, where there seemingly is no way.

Wishing you a wonderful and happy Pink Saturday!

L♥ve your pink goodies this week. Just when I think I have enough pink in my life I participate in Pink Saturday and see even more sweet things I’d enjoy having in my home or flowers for my gardens or just to look at☺ What could be better than the color pink dancing in your head all morning?

DO GO! Life is much too short to miss an opportunity and then look back wondering why you didn't do it!

Thanks so much for sharing. Hoping your weekend is filled with sunshine and the comfort of those you love and who love you.

I like the opera house in pink :)

Making a big move is not easy but I believe when you make the decision, if it's the right one you will have a peace in your heart about it.

ciao for now,
Elena
PS - if you do come over to Aus - pop down to Melbourne for a visit :)

It would be so much easier if God just wrote the answers to our prayers in the sky...in big bold letters. He does speak to us in various ways; scripture, situations and circumstances, other people, etc. Listen and then take the next logical step. God usually puts up road blocks if we're going the wrong way. He also gives us a deep-settled peace inside when we are on the right road.

A move to Australia sounds entirely fun to me! May we go? We are particularly tired of the Vermont weather.

Still visiting around for PS.

Wow! What does your daughter think? What an exciting adventure Geli!

Gloria said...

From the sound of it I venture to say all will be good but life isn't like that is it? I so want to know what happens with you that I guess I'd better sign up to follow you and read some of your earlier posts!

Loving the pink by the way!

Have a blessed rest of week and give your head a break. As Bunny said, One step at a time . . go with it, enjoy the adventure.

We will be praying for you and your new move! God is faithful and he will direct your steps. It is the best move when God is directing and you can be with your children.
Love and blessings
