The question for which I still have no answer

The question that everyone asks — LOML and I included — is how long will we be living in Germany.  The short answer is that we still don’t know.

When we were in Arizona this winter we thought we would know in March.  We thought we would have some resolution to this open-ended question by now.  We told our family and friends we should know by the end of March/beginning of April.  The end of March has come and gone.  The end of April has come and gone.  We are rapidly approaching the middle of May and we still don’t know.  Right now LOML’s current project ends this fall.  His company is waiting to hear if they have another project in this region.  They are waiting for a response.  We are waiting for a response.  Our family and friends are waiting for a response.

What are we doing in the mean time?  We live life.  We wait.  But we don’t let the unknowns rule us.  We keep living our regular lives.  We keep trying to do God’s Kingdom work here and now.  We don’t hole up in our house making plans and sub plans and alternate plans.  It took a while, but we have gotten to the point where we are mostly content to not know.  Would it be nicer to know where we’ll be at the end of this year?  You better believe it!  Is that going to be something that I let drive my life?  Prevent me from fully living, experiencing, loving right now?  Absolutely not!

Now you know as much as we know, which isn’t much.

EDIT 06.05.2013: We got an update today!  But it doesn’t help anything, so no real news to share.
