UPDATED!!! This was to have been sent out a couple of weeks ago....and just realized it hadn't been sent out. So, read it as though you are reading it two weeks ago.... :-)
I am so excited that you are following along on this journey with us. I wish I had thought of it earlier! But, it is what it is, right?
It's basically a way for me to journal this adventure. I wish I had did it the other two times we put a fleece out before the Lord, but I didn't.
Yesterday, we had a showing of our home and today, we have another showing later this morning.
So far, since we put the house on the market on February 22nd, (actually the sign didn't go up for two days) we'll have had 8 showings in 2 weeks. That's not tons and tons...but consistent.
I am having you join me on this journey because, I need to talk about it and journal it and what better way. :-)
There have been questions, naturally, of what we'll do IF the house sells and what we'll do if it doesn't.
Well, this is our plan...but you know, God could change it.
First, IF the house sells in the time frame that has been set and for the agreed upon amount, (between us and the Lord) then we'll know that this is God's Will and we'll proceed with the rest of our plans of buying a 5th wheel and a truck. If it doesn't, then we'll know that God wants us to stay put and HE will provide the necessary finances in order for us to continue on. What will that be? Maybe a job, maybe something else, I guess we'll know in time. That's the hard part of waiting on the Lord....but we are confident that HE alone knows what is the ultimate best for us.
Our plans, as some of you know already, is to buy a 5th wheel and a truck and to just go on the road working when we can with the Volunteer Christian Builders on different projects, and volunteering for other types of jobs, visiting friends and family and living here in Central Oregon during the summer months. We want to be available to help out whenever we can, whereever we can.
I have had some ask me, what will be the outcome IF you do not sell your house? Well, that too is in God's hands and we'll have our answer that this constant thinking of going full time is NOT from Him...but one of our own. I do know that I will continue teaching card classes in my home and will just amp it up quite a bit and hubby will look for a part time job.
But, we just need to take it one day at a time and that can be so hard to not try and look ahead but at the same time, you have to plan ahead in the event it all comes together. :-)
And, I may be talking to an empty room, here, and THAT'S ok too....I am 'journaling' basically because I can look back at a later time and see God's handiwork in how this all came about.
So, for today, I wanted to add a little touch of stamping to the blog for those that may not really care about our journey :-)
I received a card from a friend in PA and I just had to case it using my own ideas and stamps.
Hope you are having a fantastic week!!!
