September Life Update

Hi friends, it’s been a while, hasn’t it! I’m still doing this blogging thing no worries I haven’t quit, but things just seemed to have gotten away from me. One week I forgot to get a blog post written and now suddenly I haven’t posted in four months. It’s crazy how time flies like that.

I’ve missed this. I’ve missed writing and processing through my thoughts. So I’m coming back, hopefully soon. I would love to say a date, but I don’t know if I’m ready to do that quite yet. But soon.

Since we’re all here though and I’m still typing I thought it might be kind of nice to do a quick little life update. First off, since my last post God has been really doing a number on our lives.

In early June we decided that it would be a good idea to talk to a loan officer to see the timeline of when we would be able to buy a house, thinking that next summer would be the time that we would buy. Our plans were to meet, see how much more we needed to save, and then go into hard core saving mode.

But we met with two loan officers and they said a very different thing than we were thinking… Essentially what they both said was, ‘you can afford it so why not buy the house now?’ Which first we didn’t think we could afford it and second, that was no where in my plan for this year! But long miraculous story short, here I am writing this from my bed in our home while Karl is doing drywall work in the basement.

And I truly can’t believe we’re in our home right now. A home wasn’t even in our radar and yet God had one that he practically laid in our laps. Do you ever have those things that the Lord gives to you that you know he picked out specifically for you? There are just those times in our lives when we can see the love and kindness of God so clearly. And of course just like anyone’s life there have been trials over these past months. Some more difficult than others, but looking back something has always shown through. God’s love working in my life. His love and sovereign plan have been putting me exactly where I need to be. The piercing pain of rejection has brought the love of Karl’s family into focus. And I’m so grateful for that. So as we go into this fall season take a minute to look around you and appreciate those who love you.

Thanks for everything ♡
