From Aberdeen to St. Andrews

In August our family will be moving south an hour and a half to the town of St Andrews for Tim to finish his PhD studies as his professor took a post there. There are SO many more details in this newsletter Tim wrote and it's much more eloquent than I could say it all ;)

But I will say, that it will be terribly hard to say good bye to our friends here. It's only been 2 years, but it seems like we have bonded like college kids away from home ;)  We have absolutely loved our church here and the fellowship of families through the university. God has been so good to our family.  But as hard as it will be to move on,  I am encouraged that God has been clear again in directing us and caring for us along each step of the way. 

We just told the girls and they were excited. We got to visit yesterday and looked at two prospective schools Maddy would go to for P1 (Kindergarten) and even got to view a flat that might work out nicely for us to rent. We're excited to see what God has for us in the days ahead. It should be a busy summer. The girls and I will be back home with family during the month of July and then we come back, pack up, and go! 

You know what is ironic, is that just prior to finding out about this big change, I was thinking how comfortable I was and how easy things had gotten. I like to be comfortable. Haha! But it's so good for us to be stretched sometimes so that we continue to rely on the Lord and not ourselves. 

He is always faithful! A friend shared this verse recently and it has been a great encouragement to me. It's not just about our financial needs, but also our spiritual and emotional needs. 

"And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches
 of his glory in Christ Jesus." Philipians 4:19

Menu Plan Monday {Last week of Low Carb Meals}

Well, last week of low carb meals ;) It's been good, but I think next week I'll make ITALIAN ;)

Cilantro Lime Chicken with Avocado  Salsa

Chicken Roulade, Spinach Salad

Onion Lemon Salmon
Tim's cousin gave me this idea of chopping onions, placing the salmon on top of the onions and then placing lemon slices over top, covering with foil and baking. I'm gonna try it! I think 350 degree for about 20-30 minutes until it flakes.
