Its been a WHIRLWIND of a year… and though I felt God detaching, tugging at my heart in preparation for a move back to Texas the beginning of 2015, my hubby wasn’t on board yet.
So… I prayed and waited and decluttered and packed and waited and prayed.
Then the unexpected happened, and suddenly we placed our house on the market, and ‘By Owner’!
God prompted the thought… whispered it into the recesses of my mind and said, “It only takes ONE, believe it! It only takes one person to love your home!” I believed and God did! Within a few days we had a contract and closed on our home of 23 years the end of July 💕
In the midst of all the craziness we packed a four bedroom – 2 attic and garage full of belongings and placed it all in not one but four storage units. And to add to the mix… I’d signed up to hike the Grand Tetons with The Freedom Challenge months before I knew we would be moving only to be gone the last five days. And my poor hubby…he too was recovering from shoulder surgery done in June. After saying our good-bye’s… off we went driving (not flying) to Texas only to arrive after midnight at my sister’s house with 2 dogs and a cat, adding to her 2 cats and a dog… and more craziness to say the least! We’d accumulated a lot in our 37 years of married life. And… we’re a bit crazy and like to live life out of our comfort zone! It’s an adventure for sure.
Three months have passed and we’ve found a new home to love ✝️… and all because of God’s GRACE and MERCY. Our contract was accepted on October 17, 2016. We close on November 15th. God’s timing is always PERFECT. Again, it only takes ONE, one home to capture your HEART 💕
This has been a long awaited dream of ours for decades. We’ve talked and talked about retiring by combining households with my sister. She never married and my boys have always been hers, so it just made sense to combine in our retiring years. Well, we’ve finally done it! Praise God!
Delight yourself in the Lord; And He will give you the desires of your heart. – Psalm 37:4 💕
