So, we have a contract on the house.
To close in four and half weeks.

We have no where to go.

There are a lot of things that need to fall in place quickly.
Hopefully, I don't fall over.

I have to move forward assuming everything will happen according to plan whilst knowing it may all fall apart at anytime before then.

I like being spontaneous and going with the flow.

For about a day.

For a place to live and how to do it all with the boys and the baby, not so much.

I am grateful for the contract, especially in a market like this. I am.
I just wish I knew what to do from here.

I still need your prayers.

I'm feeling rather alone right now.
Yes, it is the middle of the night and so I am alone, but it is more than that.

I must confess to not relishing the idea of moving away. I know that this is a necessary step to our dreams, but this interim move and life will not be easy. At a time when I want to nest, be surrounded by friends and family, we are pulling up all our roots. And it hurts.

Oh you poor dear! Wish I could help you pack up, or take the boys for the day so you two could house hunt.

I know the alone feeling, though my family is close by, I still never see them, and friends? No where even close by. You'll get it done, and the Lord won't leave you homeless. It certainly seems His will for you to move, when you look at how quickly you were able to put your house on the market, and now how quickly its selling.
And while we may not see a clear path, we know God has our steps already ordered, all we have to do is follow, even though that can be easier said than done. Cling tightly to Him, He will sustain you!
Love and hugs and prayers,

HUGS. We are in the process of looking for a place as well. And with my being 25 weeks pg, the clock is ticking and there's nothing in sight.

I'm praying for you.

He will direct your path...we were in a similar situation four years ago. However, it was all for good. I was pregnant--one minute thrilled the house was sold--the next sad and crying to have to move. Said a prayer for you this morning :)

Praying for you, Kimberly and your precious family and that it ALL works out smoothly...



Katie said...

Praying for you and your dear family Kimberly. God will provide just the right nest, new friends, and all that you need. I know it is hard to pull up roots. Thanking God with you that He provided a buyer for your lovely home.

I can imagine the turmoil. Hope you'll find soon a place to call home and grow new roots.

Hi Kimberly,

I am putting you and your family in my prayers. I know the good Lord will offer you the perfect wisdom, energy, enthusiasm, strength and peace to deal beautifully with this transition. We grew up in a military family so moves were a way of life for us (until my mom became too sick with MS to continue). My parents made the moves an adventure. Because we had each other it never felt awkward and my parents were very disciplined and organized when packing and unpacking so, unless the movers were late, we had all of our cozy beds and familiar family things out and up right away. I know you aren't in the mood for this now, and I don't blame you one bit, but I know you are going to be blessed by this move. I have a hunch that in hind site you will look back and realize that it was a blessing. Change is always a little uncomfortable and even scary. That said, I've discovered that to grow some discomfort is necessary (i.e., growing pains ;). Please know you are also in our prayers for finding the perfect home at the perfect price for you and your blessed family.
Love and hugs,

P.S. Also, I was thinking, that to sell you house in this economy is truly a blessing and a sign that the good Lord is definitely behind this decision.

P.S.S. While I am super sentimental (overly!) I never have too hard of a time moving because a house is just a thing, home is where my family is, and I know you will make a loving and lovely home no matter where you are. x0x
