House News

Well, our house is still on the market with no potential buyers in sight! However, Jeffry and I have not been completely satisfied with our realtor's efforts in advertising our house, so the realtor is enlisting the assistance of another realtor from the coast. I think this is a great idea! They are both coming by today to take photos of the house. I woke up early this morning and organized everything, trying to make the house look perfect! Potential buyers will see these pictures! Not to mention that they will be used in newspaper advertising and online.

I humbly ask that you join with us in prayer to find the right buyer for our house. Our hearts are already out at the farm...even the boys! Whenever we have to clean up, I tell them we are cleaning so someone might like our house and buy it; then we get to move to the farm! They really cannot wait to get out there. I know that God is faithful, and that He will bring the right person at the right time. My flesh feels like the time is NOW! patience is definitely being tested. I just keep thinking of all the things coming up:
Brayden is starting Kindergarten on August 8th, and I will have to drive him to and from school (about 20 minutes which is far for our small town) until we move to the farm because the bus won't come to our house now. (It's in a different school district)
The baby is due December 2nd! Which is only a week after Thanksgiving...which means who knows what my house will be like around the holidays. I would SOOO love to be settled into our new home by then...(God, are you listening!?)
Along this same vein, WHEN will I get Christmas shopping done?? People keep telling me to shop online, but really...I'm not that kind of person. I'm the person who LOVES stores at Christmas time; I can't WAIT until they start decorating for Christmas (never too early in my opinion!). And I can't help but being afraid I may miss this special part of my favorite time of the year because who knows when the baby will make his debut!?
Maintaining the farm is fun, but we have to drive out there everyday to feed the cows, dog, and cats. How great it will be to just walk out across the field to do all of this.

Obviously, I have a lot of things going through my brain right now! I am so thankful that God is still giving me words of faith and sustenance. I KNOW that He hears our prayers, and I firmly believe that He is working things out. How great it is to know that nothing is impossible for our God!!
