Here comes Desiree!
Hi everyone! My name is Desiree' but I go by Desi. If I am not nannying, I'm usually spending time with my family and husband. I just got married in October and I am moving in July to a place I don't know yet! My husband is in the Air force. I am learning to trust God this year!
I’m not going to lie, when Lenae first asked me to do a guest blog post, I didn’t know what to write about. Here I am two days late with my post. That’s life. At least my life. My life is full of running around like a chicken with their head cut off. So here’s my post. I’m just gonna go with the flow.
I cannot believe that we are only 2 TWO days away from a New Year. I don’t know about you guys, but I just love a new year. It feels like a clean slate, and I get to do whatever I want with this fresh start. Each year, I like to think of what I would like to accomplish over the year, but that does not usually go as planned. Just the beginning of this year I thought I was going to become a police officer and I finished that degree, but now I am going back to Nursing. I am the kind of person who wants to have their life planned out. Well God really showed me this year that I can not plan my life or expect all of the great things He is going to do for me. Just this year, I went through major depression/ anxiety, I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, I had a blood problem and had to go to a special blood doctor, my husband (boyfriend at the time) told me he wanted to join the Air Force, me and my boyfriend got engaged, my fiance joined the Air Force, we got married, and I don’t have hyperthyroidism anymore. It’s so amazing to look back at everything and see how faithful God is. Never in a million years could I plan what happened this year. But you know what? God had every.single.thing. planned out that happened this year, before I was even born.
Starting in 2016, my husband leaves for basic training for the Air Force January 5th. This will be the first time we are apart from each other longer than 9 days. But GUESS WHAT? God already has it planned and has everything worked out for our good because He loves us. My husband will be in basic training for 8 weeks, then he leaves straight from there to go to tech school for 4 months, and then finally we will get stationed somewhere in the world. To be honest, I am nervous. Nothing is picture perfect like it may seem on my social media, or in my life. I am nervous to be apart for 6 months, I am nervous about where we will be stationed, I am nervous that I will not be able to start Nursing school this year, I am nervous there will not be any people we can click with where we get stationed, I am nervous about being so far away from our families, etc. But, this is just something else I can not plan. This just makes me lean on God even more; trusting Him. I would love to start looking at houses, churches, places to go, where we will be stationed BUT I can’t. I will not know where we will be living until about a month before we move. I’m trusting God has everything planned and everything will be great; because just like this past year, things I would never ever be able to plan exceeded my hopes and dreams, and I am believing the same exact thing will happen this upcoming year.
So here is to the New Year, here is to leaning on more of God’s Grace, here is to trusting God more, and enjoying the ride.
Are any of your spouses or family members in the Air Force? If so, I’d love to talk!
