the homefront

{because i can't post without a picture. me and these sweet things. mothers day 2013}

the past few weeks have been quite a whirlwind. matthew finished up his seminary class, we took a little vacation, continued to show our house non-stop, sold our house, bought a new one, went camping, and carried on everyday life. 


we are so so so grateful that our house sold in 22 days. with 45 showings at that point, i didn't know how much longer i could keep it up. we are on the hunt now for a rental while our new home is being built. it's quite the challenge that i didn't anticipate. 

i always love looking back over time and seeing things so clearly. matthew and i sat down the other night to process all that has been happening. and as we were recalling ALL of the events of the past six months, it was incredible to see the way God, in his sovereignty, is orchestrating all of these seemingly small (to us) details to weave and work in His big design. we've had prayers with clear answers and job changes and very distinct vision for our family. and as i look ahead and start to feel anxious about what is to come, i turn around and look back again and remember all of His faithfulness to us. i then start marching forward once again in confidence and truth that He has it all under control. 

our new home is just across the river and we could not be more excited about this next chapter in our lives. though i am extremely emotional, EXTREMELY, i am thrilled for what the Lord has in store for us in our next home. 

we have learned so so so much in the five years we have lived in this house. we brought two of our boys home here. we moved in when grey was just a year old. we really grew as a family here. it is so very sentimental to me. i am here with these boys day in and day out. their first memories are here inside these walls. it's our home. we have made it ours and welcomed others in. the Lord has used it and we are so thankful to have lived here. 

and i know when we move into our new home those memories are just waiting to be made, but i'm not there yet. i'm not ready to leave all of this here. 

we have a couple more weeks here and we are planning on enjoying our home to the fullest!
