Today I found myself looking for a new job and a new place to live. Hmmmm...Castle Rock Colorado. Average high - 86 degrees - average low - 53 degrees. Nice. 35,000 people, quaint downtown, beautiful mountains, seasons even! I find that I grow restless at the one-year mark of almost every occasion - every city, job, house. I don't really even know if this is normal or not. But then reality sets in and I realize - yes, I just bought a house, I am in an MBA program that my work is paying 80% tuition - I'm at least here for another 2 years. Am I being too logical? Wait, me - logical? That seems a bit of an oxymoron to some I would suppose. Maybe practical is a better way of looking at it. And I'm not unhappy - in fact the opposite. Just restless. As God has shown me numerous times in my life, immediate gratification does not yield the highest gain. Patience is definitely something in which I need more experience. Typically - I want something (job, school, house, etc) and it has come relatively quickly. There are reasons God has chosen to put me in the circumstances in which I currently find myself, so I pray for patience and contentment in these and all things.

'Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.'
Hebrews 11:1
