As the leaves fall from the trees here in beautiful Northwest Arkansas, we have passed a major step in our season of change.
Our Phoenix house is sold. While it seemed like forever, in all it only took 10 weeks to get a buyer. And interestingly enough the day we accepted the offer our realtor got another call from someone who wanted to make an offer. Sometimes God provides in abundance.
So now we can turn our attention to house hunting. We love living in a small town but that does mean the inventory is somewhat limited. Especially for a family our size. While we don’t need a mansion by any means we do need space – and bathrooms. Living in a two bathroom house the last 6 months has provided some interesting challenges. That half bath makes a huge difference in the morning routine of getting 5 people out of the house.
So it may take us awhile.
God provided an amazing rental house for us and of course, we are truly grateful. Yet to be honest I am struggling with patience.
I don’t do that so well.
It was the hardest part of our adoption. Waiting. Giving control over to God. Of course it is also where I learned the most, and where I grew as a person.
I think maybe God thinks I need a refresher course.
So we wait. For the right house, the right neighborhood, the right price.
I know God will provide something amazing and perfect. It is fairly easy for me to have faith in that.
I just would like it sooner rather than later 🙂
