Daniel and I have thrown around the idea of buying a bigger house for the last few months. We've gone back and forth and thought we'd landed on just staying where we are, in our (tiny but lovely) 2-bedroom home. The thing is, we're really content here with our 900 square feet and it's so cheap that our monthly budget is a breeze. However, in light of the knowledge that we're about to have TWO little boys running around, we decided to put our house up for sale and see what happens. This took a lot of thought for us; ever since we moved back from Africa, we always think of the fact that most people in the world have a lot more children in a lot less space than we have. We try to be purposely careful with keeping our life and our possessions as simple as possible. We have a peace about trying to move though, and we're excited to see how God leads us and where we land.
Would you do me a favor? Would you say a prayer specifically about us selling our house? We only have a couple months and then we'll have to take it off the market for a while when Caleb is born and we're in the hospital for a couple months. Our hope is that God would provide quickly and we could move before the baby comes. With the market the way it is, this would be a miracle in itself! I appreciate, more than I could tell you, the prayers and encouragement people are pouring out to us. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. You're shaping the way God is moving in our lives.
