Imagine my delight when I showed up at my house today and beheld this fantastic view (and let me put in a plug for my fantastic realtor - she is amazing and I was introduced to her at a chance meeting through a friend at my MOPS table - totally God!) :
It still takes my breath away. We have accepted an offer on our house! After only being on the market for two short weeks, and the day before the Open House was scheduled to take place, we got the offer. We countered, and they accepted, and the Open House was cancelled! Brilliant. If all goes well, we will be closing by no later than May 15th - just two days before Josh & George turn 4! We'll have to have a birthday party before we move.
It's been difficult, having our family separated these past few months. But God has blessed us so immensely, and I am once again reminded how much I need to trust Him in all things.
Now I am tasked with packing everything up (and purging as much as possible), while Chris is focusing on getting a new house lined up for us. We think he may have found just the right place (again, by God's grace and perfect timing) for our family, and we are going to be putting an offer on it tomorrow. Hopefully it will all work out as well. God's timing is always the best, and it never ceases to amaze me when he displays his power and control so directly in my life. It is humbling and overwhelming, to be sure.
So I'm still here, but still busy. I look forward to when I am able to do more regular posting - there are many interesting things going on with the kids and I've already lost SO much by not documenting it all. But I will strive to do better. And soon I will have all kinds of new stuff to post about (and I will HAVE to post more because we'll be away from all of our family then).
