Goodbye House

Friday Brian and I met with the realtors that helped us by our home 5 and 1/2 years ago. We have decided to put our house on the market after Memorial day weekend. It feels quite surreal. We LOVE this house. It's not going to be easy to see someone else have there way with it. In this house we have painted, repainted, refloored, and learned how replace ugly molding with pretty molding. In this house we have cried and ached and mourned the loss of two babies. In this house we entered our thirties. In this house we FINALLY bought brand new furniture and said goodbye to the hand-me-downs. In this house we have celebrated the ultimate gift of Elliana. In this house we have poured out our heart's desires to God. In this house we cautiously voiced those dreams to one another. In this house we've become strong enough to give those dreams to God and accept His giant plans. Now, part of those plans are saying goodbye to this house. We're very excited about moving closer in to SE and becoming a part of the community we are starting Hopecity in. If I could, however, I would just pick up this house and move it to Woodstock. BUT, since moving a house isn't exactly realistic, I get to be excited about finding a new home for our new season AND having a new place to decorate! mmm...my favorite! I can already feel the creative juices flowing! :) ****Will you pray with me that all of these transitions go smoothly? Will you pray that we get the most we can out of this house and that we find the perfect house for our next place? Will you pray that it's all done before the summer is over? I know you will and I'm so thankful for your support through prayer.****
