Beyond Me

Friday, September 3, 2010


we are proceeding with renting our house out to our friends. so we are starting our house hunt. our friends would like to be in our house by november we have a little time. we have picked 12 houses out of 50 houses. (realtor sent us the mls listings for 50 that fit the criteria of what we are looking for...)  basically our criteria is 4 or more bedrooms in oconee in our certain price i narrowed it down to 12 by looking through pictures of the houses (that was a lonely day for jackson..while mommy stared at a computer screen all day..) and jack and i did a 3 hour drive by of some of the houses (jackson did incredibly well with being in his car seat that long, praise GOD!!)..

and some other things i found important were..
community pool

and jack likes...
close access to the loop
space in the yard
a great financial deal..( ie. lots of house for a little money..)

so the fun begins...the adventure of trying to make his stuff and my stuff fit together like a puzzle to find the house that is right for our family. (can be very agonizing..was much easier when i found and bought this house without anyone's opinions to hold me back..but i am sure that the Lord is molding jack and i..helping us to relate to one another in a more Christ-like way..)

you see, with the trade house..we had no choices.  which was nice in some ways.

for my praying readers..please pray that I won't make this house searching thing an idol. that when my heart beats it will be to the rhythm of matthew 6.  this has been a real challenge for me..we come home from house hunting and i lay in bed all night thinking about the various houses and the various is daunting. i would love to enjoy the freedom of knowing the Lord is in control and will do His Holy and Perfect Will.

Matthew 6:19-21 (New International Version)
Treasures in Heaven
19"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

So Tues and Thurs of next week we will tour houses with our Realtor (whom i LOVE if you ever need a good one!) 

to be continued...

also, loved reading my friend's Sunday blog today (hey, don't judge..i know it is already Friday :)  it was about living in the Real World.  <---click here..hope He uses it to speak to your heart like He spoke to mine.
