Stuck Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Life has been pretty much the same...working, sleeping, hanging out with Jon on my days off.  Recently Jon and I have each been faced with a difficult decision.  To make a long story short, Jon is not totally happy with his job.  He is homesick often because he has not made any friends here in Fort Worth and his parents and all of his friends are back home.  It makes it harder on him when I am working and he doesn't have anyone to hang out with.  So Jon decided to apply for a job here in Fort Worth in hopes to be happier (shorter drive, hopefully nicer people at work, and maybe make some friends who live in Fort Worth).  He went for the interview, and  is still doubting staying here.  There are a lot of things that are causing him to want to move back home and a few things, mainly hopes, wanting him to stay here.  He is trying to weigh the pros and cons and come up with a decision this week because he will have to let the new job he applied for know if he will accept or not.  Then based upon his decision, I will have to decide what to do.  If he wants to stay, hooray, no decisions for me. If he decides that home is where he really wants to be, then I will have to decide if I will stay here alone or move back home.  I do get homesick and miss my family and friends often, but I do love my job and the hospital I work at here.  I don't feel that I will find a job back home like the one I have here.  I have also made friends here who I enjoy spending time with, so I am not as homesick as Jon.  I hope and pray that things will work out here in Fort Worth, but I want what is best for Jon and what will make him happy.  It worries me and makes me stressed out, but I have to put my faith in the Lord and believe that He will direct Jon's decision based on His plan.  

The Lord says, "I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you."   Psalm 32:8

Girl, I feel like I haven't talked to you in forever. Why is it that we've been working opposite lately? I hope things are better and I will definitely say a prayer for ya'll that everything will work out just the way it's supposed to. I would be SO sad if you moved, as you are a vital part of the team, but know that happiness is important for both of you. One thing I told Colby the same night that he proposed is that I would follow him no matter where he goes, so I know that Jon is equally important to you and it makes things difficult. Hang in there sweet friend, let me know if I can help out in any way! Hope his birthday celebration was fun!
