Roots


We have just put an offer in on a house...yikes! My insides are jumping right now, I'm so nervous_ excited_ hopeful...
I wasn't even going to write about it yet because I thought maybe I should wait and see_ sellers may  decline our offer_ something may go wrong with the financing_ yadayada.. we all know the scenarios. Until you close there is that possibility that all may be wasted. But I came to the conclusion.. it doesn't matter really... either way. As excited as I am and hopeful that we will be homeowners_ it's OK. if it doesn't work out. Our God is faithful and more than capable to work all things for my good_ He knows our future_ and that makes it all OK. If it doesn't work out then I know God's got a plan and there's something else out there that I just don't know yet.. and how could I ever be in disagreement or unhappy with that??
So I wait.. expectantly b/c it's been 4 years since we last owned a home. We've moved a lot_ we've lived in a lot of different houses_ and it's now that time for us to settle. We have so desired to have roots, for our kids to make those relationships that are going to carry them through HS, to own grass_ no kidding.. one of the first things I want to do is lay in the grass...b/c it will be mine. There's something that comes when you're an owner and not just a member.
This is my God thing.. He has blessed my husband with a great job and we have found a great area to settle and continue raising our kids... but if we don't get this house_ it's still a God thing and we still thank Him & are excited for what's to come. So we wait....

I'm linking up with an awesome little lady and friend_ Katie, for it's a "God thing"


Go check out her "God thing" and other awesome ladies, too. :)

  2. I swear you are writing our story! We sold our home, rented for 3 years,and moved a lot. Then we bought a home 2 years ago. We were feeling the need to put down roots just like you describe. I love your faith in this situation.You are in such a good place...where you won't be disappointed if it does not work out just as long as you know you are following God's direction. Thanks so much for linking up, girl!!!
