House for Sale


House for Sale, originally uploaded by A!ison.

It’s official. Our house is for sale.

I got a love/hate relationship with my house. I love the garden, hate the small closets. I love the hardwood floors, hate the absurd exterior color. I love the pool parties, hate the non-insulated cold winters. I love the traffic our floors have bared, hate the walls that saw our struggles with infertility.

On one hand I am so excited to see where life takes us. Plan A was a wash and I’m so relieved that God is carving out Plan B. Right at this very moment I am unequivocally at peace with where we are going. Selling the house is right, no doubt about it.

On the other hand it is… hmm, what’s the right word… disappointing. We dreamed a lot of life in this house. It’s disappointing that the market is so bad we have to sell it at half the price we bought it for. It’s disappointing that the end of this chapter is not what we thought it would be. And those hardwood floors really are purty.

So it begins. I wonder where we’ll end up?

Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths. PROVERBS 3:5-6

And a journey it will be! I hope I get to be a part of it -- God has brought us together for a reason and I don't think its suppose to be over. btw, can't wait to hike up cowles with you again ... lol!
