We are still on a journey of SIMPLIFYING our house and items. Today we are prepping our King Bedroom set to be listed on Craig's List. This is the last of our furniture that really does have any significant re-sale value.
This week, we thought we'd found a rental house for sure. It was in the right area, price was really good, and I was the first to call the landlord and to have a scheduled appointment to see it. She promised me that I was the first. I even told her on the phone that we wanted it. I had my 30 day notice in hand to deliver to our current landlords. Then, when I showed up (with application in hand), she had JUST SIGNED up someone else who showed up 30 min. before me unscheduled! Hello? Is there sense of what is ethical here? Is there any value to giving someone your word? Apparently not to her!
But, I believe NOTHING happens by coincidence and so I really believe we just weren't meant to live there. We love the house we're in right now anyway! Maybe.... maybe.... we somehow won't have to move or maybe... just maybe... somehow we'll be able to BUY a home in the near future! I don't know how or if and I don't know what the Lord has in store for us, but my husband keeps telling me that he's felt a prompting for us to be "patient". Maybe not getting that other rental house is just another answer for us to be patient. It's hard to be patient when you feel enormous pressure and stress; yet the Lord has ALWAYS come through for us, how can I not continue in faith even when I cannot see the road in front of me? I know my Savior is holding us in His Hands! I know He is holding YOU in His Hands... None of us are forgotten or insignificant to Him. We are carved in His palms!
And it's with that note that also think of today, Sept. 11th, in honor of the many souls who lost their lives and who gave their lives to try and save others. No greater love! I pray for the families of those who lost loved ones. We will never forget!
