picture taken in early summer
We first saw this house on Thursday, April 22 of 2010. It was one of three. You can read the post I wrote about it. We went into contract on the house Friday, April 30th of 2010. The following 9 months have given us many highs, lows and uncertainties. I know personally I was excited, disappointed and a bunch of things in between.
This whole process has taught me a lot. More recently, I have learned how much I lack in faith. Over and over God has just reminded me to trust that He is in control; He has shown me to just keep believing in Him. It’s hard and I wish I could victoriously rejoice that I never had a doubt but that would be a lie. Thankfully, God still loves this poorly human. I don’t know what I would do if He wasn’t constantly here reminding me to put my faith in Him.
And now, after 9 months of labor, on Thursday, February 3rd of 2011, we closed on this house and walked away with the keys to our very first home. So I introduce you to our second child: house.
It may all be coincidence, however I find it interesting that this whole process took about 9 months (give or take a week).
That would be the mother in me!
