A Plea or Post, You Decide.

Not sure if this is more of a plea than a post.

So as many of you know, we’ve had our house up for sale since early spring. I really don’t remember exactly… its just been long. I know for some, that’s not super long in this market that we’re seeing these days, but to us… with three boys… sleeping in one room… its been long. We used the third bedroom as our school room this year and it worked out great. But Noah is getting huge and every night before Brian and I go to bed, we have to check in on them because they have a pyramid bed… Ethan on top and then Sam and Noah on the full on the bottom. The dude is all over and Sam is falling out most of the time. The last time we checked Sam was lying normal on his back and Noah’s head was on Sam’s belly… Noah is 2 1/2 times heavier than Sam, if that tells you anything. Sooo, even though we love our little home, we are so ready for a larger one to house these fun and crazy guys. And hopefully one that will see them through friend’s sleepovers, girlfriends, graduations and so on… we don’t intend on doing this again anytime soon, needless to say.

So here’s the plea part… we have a second showing on Tuesday night. Its a younger woman interested who is taking her parents through to get their approval. But the clencher is her dad builds houses… yikes! So we would really like his approval since the daughter is in love with our house already. Please pray it passes the parent’s “fine-tooth comb” test and we can get some things rolling. I would love to start school in our new home. I know God has everything planned out best for us, but this way would be great.

If it doesn’t happen this way, I am fine with that too. I know God is molding us to be flexible and to test our kids patience as well. We have our dream home picked out and its just sitting there waiting for us. Even though that’s how we see it, God could have other things in store for us. So who knows what will happen. It reminds me of the verse about being content in all things. Here’s the message version of Hebrews 13:5…

“Be relaxed with what you have. Since God assured us, “I’ll never let you down, never walk off and leave you,” we can boldly quote,

God is there, ready to help;
I’m fearless no matter what.
Who or what can get to me?”
