What to do, what to do...


What do you do when you are innocently going for a walk on a Sunday, totally minding your own business, and stop in at an open house (because who doesn't love seeing the inside of other people's houses without having to explain yourself??), and fall in love with the house? When you weren't planning on moving yet, when it's a ton of money, but it's where you want to raise babies and live there for a long, long time, and you can envision big Christmas celebrations with the whole family, and quiet Christmas mornings with your small family, and summer BBQs, and kids playing the piano while you make dinner.

What do you do if someone else, someone WRONG, is buying your perfect house this very moment since you have not yet decided what to do?

Ugh.

(Ok, I know that if this is the house God wants for us, then of course, it will work out. I'm just still working on sitting still and waiting, and it is a HARD thing to learn...)

Ahh...contentment, not coveting. Such a difficult thing to master when it comes to housing!! You definitely don't want to make a move too soon or get in over your head with a house payment. Patience...God provides the perfect place in His timing (we waited 8 years!! eak!)

That IS such a thing to learn isn't it? We are in a house now, which I love, but we need to decide if we are remodeling, not remodeling, or moving. It's decision time. However, before that decision was made, we stumbled upon this house. And it's weird... I feel like it found us. I can picture us (and our future kids?) in it.

Prayering for wisdom and patience... (and the ability to sit still!)

This nearly happened to us! I'll have to share the story. The Lord "gave" us a house before we even knew I was pregnant.
Hmmmmmm???
