In Place

It was quick weekend, but we got a lot accomplished. I can now say that we have renters for our house and we now have a new home to move into in Smalltown! Our renters came and signed a lease with us. Then bright and early Saturday morning we drove to Smalltown and finalized the details of the new place we will call home.

Phew! I am so glad that neither of those are still up in the air. Here are a few pictures of the place we will call home for the next few years:



This is the view...of the place we stayed last night. Not our new home...but what a view, huh?

Our new front door...


and living room (don't mind my purse)


the little breakfast nook (don't mind my arm)....



the nook again...


the new teensy kitchen--but notice the big pantry....


the half bath....



the master bedroom...


from the other side....

and the Peanut will have an area to play outside (fully supervised of course).

So that is it in a nutshell. A new place to call home. Just about the time it is actually starting to feel like home, will probably be when we will be leaving. But I hope it doesn't take that long. To feel like home. Or to come home. :)

Just two months ago we thought this was only a remote possibility. Then it became a reality and I was so overwhelmed of all that had to be accomplished. Finding renters, packing our belongings, finding a new home...I am in complete awe of how it is all falling in place. There is simply only One explanation. God simply has perfect timing. And I would really like Him to work on Jackie-Time, but let's all be thankful He doesn't work that way. His way is much better. And I know that. But I need His reminders. A lot. Thank goodness He is so patient.

And there is still much more to be done--like actually moving and saying goodbye. I still have some apprehension, but I am learning to trust. And it's a good lesson.
