I wish I could say we’re closer to finding a new home than we were when I wrote this post a few months ago. But unfortunately, that’s not true. Since then, two more houses have entered and then left the picture. This last one carried with it a too-good-to-be-true feeling that turned out to be right, in spite of all the dreams and plans we had for it.
At this point, we’re looking for direction. Huge wide-swinging open doors would be best. This process has left us questioning even things we thought we were sure about. Obviously, there’s a reason these houses haven’t worked out. A reason it’s taken us so long to find something when others can search and buy a house in the span of a few months. And we’re trying to be content while we wait and see what God is doing in all this. Needless to say, some days are more successful than others.
In the meantime, we’re very grateful for a roof over our heads and a God whose plans we can trust even when they don’t make sense to us.
