Well, I've been a little absent from bloggy land lately. I know, you were TOTALLY missing me right?
But the truth is in all our craziness I have TOO much to post!
So I'm going to sneak one more entry in here before things go beserk...or more beserk.
I tell ya, we're you're walking with God, things become a sprint REALLY quickly!
About 6 months ago I saw a billboard on the side of the road. It was very minimalistic. Mostly white with an orange square off centered....and the word SPACES in a bold font.
It was an ad for a new housing development and I was intrigued.....no smiling psuedo family, no blah house, just an orange square. So I looked it up online and found this development being planned.
I REALLY like what they were selling, but had NO designs on buying a new house. So that was the extent of my quest. Pretty billboard, nice concept.
Then 3 weeks ago I ran right into the subdivion while taking the boys to their art class.
A class we had been attending for 4 weeks. But for some reason I noticed the sign again. This time I went and took a look. I fell in LOVE with the unique vision for this small development. The houses are designed with a European flavor. They are very open and sleek, think Ikea done well.
Next thing I know Jarrod and I are gathering our info to get pre-approved, just to 'see.'
This was just fun.
Well wouldn't you know, we could afford the house, but as we looked into it further, we didn't like the lots they were offering. Door #1 shut.
Enter our dear friend with her mad Realtor skills. She offers to start looking up houses for us.
We oblige for the fun of it, knowing full well that we have NO down and NO nest egg to speak of, since we had put everything we had into medical bills over the past few months.
That's when I thought I'd drop an acquaintance a note on FB. She and her family were having to move quickly from their townhouse a couple of cities away. It was a long shot, but I had a peace about asking.
So I put out minimal details in my note, just to let her know we'd be renting out our home within the next month. Wouldn't you know she replied almost immediately and we spent the remainder of the evening exchanging information and details about her wishlist and our home.
Fine, this is what it ACTUALLY looked like....the green effect just made it seem like the monster it is!
I'm glad that the new tenants will enjoy a brand spanking new shower....but why did WE wait 8 years to fix it?!??!
He's just lucky I think he's cute with a white mohawk! That'll get him far....
So that is what we are up to....I have 3 weeks to turn over our home to a new family. It hasn't sunk in yet, the drama of it all. But watching God provide every step along the way is amazing!
I wanted to cry when our new renters were leaving. They are believers as well, and they have their OWN story about where God is taking them.....whodathunk it was to OUR house!!
