Life has been anything but quiet these last 2 weeks. Don’t get me wrong, it’s been wonderful and amazing and God has abundantly more than provided for us. But it has been crazy.
Let me explain…
Just about 2 weeks ago we met with friends of ours to go to a play for Christmas. Just a few days before Steve and I found an interesting house that we wanted to take a look at. We’ve been on and off looking “online” at houses for quite some time now and a few in person, but we were in no hurry, nor did we think we would find what we wanted in our budget. Basically, we just want a little more land. These friends that we are going to the play with just happen to be realtors and own a successful property management company. So we asked if they could show us this place. Well, we went, saw potential in it, slowly started to love it, and decided after a week to put in an offer. With that meant we had to put up our house for sale contingent upon us buying. So the mad frenzy began.
Now, I keep a clean house. And I’m super organized. But when your realtor comes not even 24 hours to take photos after you decide to list your house, which wasn’t even on our radar to list a house, you begin the mad frenzy of cleaning and chucking junk you haven’t needed in years. (don’t worry we donated and didn’t throw) The very next day after listing we had three people come, then more the next. Basically the kids and I didn’t live at the house for those 48 hours. (I’m maximizing a little.) Then just 3 days after listing we accepted an offer and our offer was accepted.
It’s been a whirlwind. My brain can’t keep up.
Like I stated right away though, God has abundantly provided for us. We dreamed this would happen but never really thought it would be a reality. Our soon-to-be house has lots of cosmetic work but it’s a solid house on a 1.25 acre lot just outside where we live now. And this process has been amazing. Yes, busy but He has certainly provided us with amazing people we can trust to help us along the way.
So three things. First, happy update on my life! Glad I could catch you up ;) Second, don’t forget to dream those dreams. I’ve been constantly reminded that as I remain in Him, He will remain in me and when he remains in me, I’ll be more confident in knowing whether this is a selfish desire or a desire God is leading us to.
Third, we will be moving. So I need to ease all this moving which means we need a MAJOR SALE on all Six Notes items!!!
What’s awesome and amazing for my family is super duper amazing for you too ;)
So basically until I start packing away which I have no idea when that will be, we will be having a SITE WIDE 40% OFF SALE. Just use code: MOVINGSALE We’d love your help in promoting this. So share this blog, our facebook page, instagram, newsletter, whatever you wish and help us get the word out. We’d greatly appreciate your help in this.
And be sure to be praying for my family. We are excited but it will be hard to leave our neighbors. We’ve been greatly blessed over the last nine years in this home. We love it here and it will be hard on us emotionally to leave the first house we purchased just 6 months into our marriage and brought 3 babies home to.
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. - Ephesians 3:20-21
