one year ago today

... we closed on our house.
Two days ago
it went back on the market.

One year ago we were so excited to have our first house. It's a great house. It has exceeded our expectations in so many ways. We couldn't have imagined in the quick glimpse we had before deciding on this house how perfectly it suited us. We found in the months following our move how our belongings just seemed to "fit" in this home. Pieces of furniture that fit just perfectly into certain nooks or corners of this space. Closets or cupboards that fit some of our storage needs just right. I remember thanking God often for providing this home for us and having hand-picked just the right one, a better choice than we even knew "we" were making at the time.
We have more space here than we know what to do with... plenty of room to spread out, but still feeling comfortable and not separated. And the yard. Our beautiful, easy-care yard where the kids have room to run (and run and run) and play to their hearts' content.
I will certainly be sad to leave this home. If we could take our house and yard and move it with us, we would.

But now we're leaving it. Please pray that the right buyer comes along for us. As much as we've been blessed by living here for the past year, I would hope we could get just a little more blessing out of it, if you know what I mean!

And pray we find that our new home is just as (or more) right for us as a family and as where we will be in the coming years.

I would think that you WOULD have mixed feelings about this move. This house is a great house,with your very own backyard"park" and you made it your home.( I am going to miss it!!!)But a new adventure awaits you!!
