Pray Pray Pray

Well, it's April 30, and we official settle in less than a month and get a-movin'!

On the one hand, it's a very exciting time, and we have lots of things that we're looking forward to: the kiddos get to play in the back yard and not have their mom constantly hovering over them and telling them to stay near; MUCH more storage space; and a first floor laundry (YES!).

On the other hand...

Our current house still has not sold. We will still settle on May 29 regardless, and we trust in the Lord that He has it all planned out and has our backs...but it's still a little disheartening. If you know me, you'll know that I'm a "list girl". I love to-do lists, packing lists, chore brightens my day to see a list completely checked off and done. And this...well, this is STILL on the list, unchecked.

I haven't been at all nervous, but for some reason the thought, "What if our house doesn't sell...EVER?" hit me like a ton of bricks today. Yeah, I know...that stinkin' devil's playing with my mind, and my level of God Trust needs to increase just a smidge.

So, your prayers would be greatly appreciated. Please pray that things will go much smoother than we could have ever thought or planned...that I'll calm down a little...and that God brings the right people to this house.

"This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us - whatever we ask - we know that we have what we asked of him." (1 John 5:14-15).
