A New Journey

The McMahon's have a little family secret that hasn't gone out public yet. I'm not sure why I haven't shared it yet. I guess in the back of my head, I wasn't 100% sure it was going to happen. We've talked about making this move several times, but we're just now jumping out. This Friday will be Micah's last day working for SpawGlass. He's quitting his job to try his hand at starting his own business. It's something he's always wanted to do. We've talked and prayed about it ever since we've been married. The past few months, we've really felt a peace like we've got a release from God that this is what we're suppose to be doing. We do not think it's going to be an easy road, but we are confident it's the one we're suppose to be walking down. We're choosing this path for several reasons. First, Micah wants to be around family more. His job now has him working 10-12 hour days...often. Second, we want to be able to devote more time to our youth ministry. It, in and of itself, is a full time job. Finally, we feel like  this is something Micah has dreamed about his whole life. We don't want to look back 20-30 years from now with regrets. So, we're going to try it. If we, and I do mean we cause this is a family decision, least we'll know we tried. 

So, starting next week, Micah will begin his new career of landscaping. He's hoping to start there, and grow into something bigger. He'll also be doing side jobs of remodeling, handy man, etc. So, I'm sure I'll be using this little blog to showcase some of his work, share a few struggles, and keep everyone up to date on how we're doing. In the mean time, if you know anyone in the Rosenberg, Richmond, Katy, Sugar Land, etc. area that needs lawn care or maintenance work done, I know someone who can help you out. 

I don't think it's any coincidence that this past week at camp, this was the theme verse. It kinda sums up our life right now. We're totally putting our life in God's hands, and trusting he's going to take care of us!

Proverbs 3: 5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.[
