I am requesting prayer from anyone who has a spare moment regarding the exodus of myself and my wife from this state (CA) to another. A number of things have to fall in place for us to get out in a timely fashion and there are many decisions to be made.
At the moment I am split between the Texas coast, Florida or North Carolina. I think TX or FL are better constitutional strongholds but we know nobody in those states we would be living near. As a result it would end up being just myself and my wife, wherever we go. We have friends in North Carolina, and my son hopes to get stationed there as soon as he gets back off of deployment. This would be a big plus with regard to my wife, as she would have someone to talk to and having our son being able to come visit is something she would really enjoy, but over the course of the last year I have seen the government in NC pulling some very CA type stunts, and I don’t really want to move from California to California-Lite. We only get one shot at this, and if we ever had to move again it would likely be an emergency evacuation from a state in distress, if you know what I mean.
Then there is the subject of my wife. I’m certain she would accompany me to NC if I decided to go there, but she would be resistant or outright refuse to go to TX or FL, and I am at the point in my life that if her decision were to not go with me then I would just go without her. I do not feel I would be under any obligation to stay for her sake, as it would be her refusal to follow me and not my refusal to take her. I would say that I don’t think this is a possibility, but I feel it very much is.
So, I ask for your prayers. I will try to keep this blog updated with information on what is happening with regard to our move, but I think the WordPress blog is not long for staying, and I may end up destroying it sooner than later. As I have said in some of my previous posts, even if you don’t use Minds.Com, if you have any desire to continue reading anything I have to say I recommend at least going to and bookmarking my Minds page (http://www.minds.com/snappertrx). I am already in the process of copying and saving many of my important posts here so that they can be recreated there.
