Whirlwind

It’s been a crazy month, with a lot of ups and downs. We have been thinking about moving to a suburb nearby, which is closer to hubby’s work and our church. We adore our little displaced farmhouse, and the thought of leaving it is so sad…but we spend so many hours in the car that moving makes sense. So when a house came on the market that looked like it would work we decided to try for it! We’ve spent the month packing, fixing things up, looking at the house, praying, debating, and swinging back and forth. It has been an emotional roller coaster, one moment hoping that we’d get the house and move right away, the next moment wondering if we really ought to move at all.

Where are we now?

Still praying. There are a million little points that need to be worked out that don’t seem to be working out in order for us to move, and we are not feeling peace about it at this point. So we’re slowing down, taking a breath, and trusting God to provide for whatever His will is in this.

I’m learning a lot of lessons this month. I’ve learned that I am content where I am and I’ve learned to trust God that our family can be content in a new place, too. I’ve learned that the real estate market is tricky. I’ve been reminded that we are very blessed in our current home and I have been thankful over and over that we are looking to move out of choice, and not necessity.

I don’t know if we’ll be moving or not, but I am glad that we’ve had this crazy month to teach us. And as an added bonus, I’ve gotten rid of a lot of clutter, toys, books and clothes that were complicating life. A lot of little things are getting fixed around the house that needed to be fixed anyway, and at the very least we’ll come out of this with a cleaner and more comfortable home then we had when we started!

I will hopefully be posting more now that things seem to be settling down. I’m trying to find new direction in my writing as well, but for now I am just trying to sit down and write something consistently again. I miss it. Thank you for your patience!

  1. I’m so glad to hear that everything is OK…you weren’t posting for several days and that was worrisome!I’ll be in prayer for God’s Will in this matter.

  2. And you have been missed here. Knowing God is faithful and will place you and your family exactly where you need to be at just the right moment…giving you peace in the midst of the journey. In Jesus,

  3. I don’t know what happened, but somehow I haven’t stopped here in a while. It’s been crazy-busy for me, too. But Rissaroo, it’s good to “see” you. Blessings, sister…

  4. Glad to see you on here again. You have a great outlook on the moving thing, so I know it will go well, whatever God has planned. Just so long as your settled somewhere in Sept, so that we can hopefully come! Hope to read more of your beautiful writing soon.
