When I married Graham, I always knew life with him would be exciting...but little did I know there would be so much adventure. So much change. So much moving. So much laughter. So many tears. So many good times..Just so much.
In March, we moved from our little single wide, to a lovely, spacious basement suite. I always said I never wanted to live in a basement.. but when we walked into this one, I knew right away I would change my mind, and it would be a nice upgrade from what we were living in. We settled in here, and thought the year we had (till they were going to put the house on the market) would go by way too fast. BUT, you might as well settle in and enjoy it. Which is exactly what we did!
In May, an interesting thing happened. One morning, my husband and I were sitting down for our devotions, and we read "Man's goings are of the Lord; how can a man then understand his own way?"-Proverbs 20:24
We were talking after we were done reading, about the above verse..Graham wondering what it really means. I replied, "well, if we would be called back to Ontario, we really wouldn't understand the whole reasoning why He brought us out here, and then back there again. And, probably most people wouldn't understand. But, if we allow God to direct our paths, we won't always understand, and they won't always make sense to our way of thinking." End of discussion.
Later that morning, something came up, that totally "forced" us to think about moving back. Graham was not excited. At all. And pretty much right then, I knew he thought we would be staying... He absolutely loves it out here in BC. But, I just had this feeling that we were going to be moving. I tried not to bring it up too much, or in my excitement, put pressure on him. It was just a waiting/praying/trusting game. We had a trip planned for 3 weeks later. While we were there, we looked at this big old farmhouse that is for rent...but needs lots of interior renovations. Still no answer...still waiting to see what the Lord would do.
There was a deadline of sorts for our decision to be made...but we came home, undecided...more unsure than ever. However, it didn't take a whole lot longer till we felt clear direction from the Lord. We would go. The morning after we decided, we found out the house we are in now, was getting put on the market sooner than expected...confirmation? Yes. A big one.
I needn't say I'm excited. A big old farmhouse, is something I have dreamed about fixing up ever since I was a little girl. And, even though we won't be doing extensive remodel...it's still the same idea...changing it from old and drab, to beautiful, and clean and fresh. And just Farmhouse. Not to mention there are over a dozen huge old Maple trees in the gorgeous yard.
We are excited, but it is still a lot of change going on, and we are still trusting and waiting to see what His path may bring us to.
Our New Home
We are planning to move early Fall. Can't wait to get there and get to work, fixing it up, and making it our own!
So there is a little update of what's been going on over here...
Maybe it will happen a little more often, since it's a little bit dusted off...but no promises. Life as a mommy...you never know. :)
Have a blessed week!
