Packing and Moving. But not unpacking right away, I'm in a transition if you will.
We move into the in-laws this Saturday and are still waiting to hear back from the bank on the house we put in an offer on.
It is beautiful (or will be when we get done with it) and Chris and I dream about all the projects and ideas almost everyday.
Here are thing I love about our new house: I love the neighborhood, the street, the full brick (no exterior maintenance-woot woot) the open living/dining room, the extra family room with wood burning fire place, the large kitchen, the laundry room (inside the house) the 2 1/2 baths, the 2 car garage, the enclosed sun room, the huge amounts of built in storage, the deck in the back and of course the feeling you get when you can really see yourself living in a house!
I've been standing on some scripture to build my faith up:
"Happy are those who seek refuge and put their trust in Him" Psalm 2:12
"The Lord is my Rock, my Fortress and my firm strength in whom I will trust and take refuge, my shield, and the Horn of my Salvation, my High Tower" Psalm 18:2
"My trust and assured reliance and confident hope will be fixed in Him" Hebrews 2:13
"When I am afraid, I will have confidence in and put my trust and reliance in You" Psalm 56:3
Just looking at my situation can get me discouraged, I don't know the details, the time line and I can't plan anything! But I know that that is when I need to stand and let God work. I've noticed in the scriptures I'm standing on these words: trust in, rely on, hope in and put confidence in: The Lord and His Word! The Lord will show himself faithful in this situation.
But until then... I'm waiting and kind of in limbo.
p.s. The photo is of the house we are believing for! We call it our "Sandusky House"

It's been a whirl wind couple of weeks getting our house ready to sell, hiring a realtor, looking for houses and cleaning for showings. Luckily we only had to have 4 showings until we got an offer (at asking price) and signed the offer! We moved in almost 7 years ago after our honeymoon to Maui and have loved every minute of it. We spent this last weekend finishing projects up and running out of the house before prospective buyers were coming. We will really miss this little house and I plan on taking lots more photos and some video before we move on April 19th!!! Hopefully inspections will go smoothly and we will have an easy transition. I've posted some before and after photos for the official farewell.
