"I hold on to You for dear life, and you hold me steady as a post..." Psalm 63

{SOLD}

Dear Blog...
I have missed you.  I don't know why I have been away so long.  I think it has something to do with being distracted by getting my house ready to sell, maintaining the clean, keeping up with my kids schedules, looking for a job and moving Alex back home from a great year of college...all the while just living life.  Not great excuses, but they're all I have. I plan to get back on schedule now though...
because after 19 days with a For Sale sign in my front yard, tonight I signed THIS...
I'll share more about the new owners of my house later...all I can say is I'm SO excited that the new inhabitants of this house will pick up loving it right where we left off.  They will grow and nurture their family here and find joy here just as we have.

Two and a half weeks ago it was Emma's job to push the sign in the ground...


So, tonight Nick got the honor of pulling the sign OUT of the ground. 


So long, you're outta here!

There are still things to finalize and MUCH painting left to do at the new house...but step1 is done.  It was my hope, of course, from the beginning that the house would sell quickly, but in this market there are just no guarantees.  There are houses For Sale in this town that have been on the market for months and months.  But, I am completely surprised and humbled at the Lord's gracious timing for us.  As I told my kids tonight...never forget that He cares even about the little things in our life.  With so much else still unknown in my life, tonight was a reminder to me that we are not forgotten.  Not only the sale of our home, but also the details of my job search are known thoroughly by Him and each step has gone through Him first.  I need that reminder often...and He faithfully reminds me just when it is needed. 

"For the Lord is good.
His unfailing love continues forever,
and his faithfulness continues to each generation."
Psalm 100:5

Thanks, Janelle...great seeing you, too! I could have chatted longer...but don't think the voting ladies would have appreciated it! One of them wanted to know where you lived and was so excited to find out where...she loves watching the progression of your back yard! Be prepared that next time they will know you by name and your home location! Love small town living!
