The Problem I Wanted

Well folks, the day we have been dreaming of for 11 months has finally come... someone wants our house!

As you may remember, selling didn't go our way, so we decided to go the slum lord land lord route (actually, we're using a property manager).  After 4 months, a price reduction, refinancing, another price reduction, and 8 showings, we have tenants!

Our patience has been tested and we have wondered why it seemed that God was directing us to Manheim (church, work, family, etc) but not providing a solution for our housing situation.  However, after the floods that wrecked the Manheim borough last week (and mostly in the areas we had considered living it), maybe that is part of our answer.  Also, we definitely having been learning lessons in budgeting, living more simply, and just trusting God for every area of our lives, especially finances.

But now the time has come to leave York and head to Lancaster (actually more bittersweet than I expected), and we are SO excited for this new endeavor!

The problem?

We must be OUT OF HERE by September 28 - - which is 13 days away, and we don't have a place to go !  I think we found a place that will work, but we're just waiting to see if that pans out.

But seriously, after longing to be closer to Herb's work and our lovely church for so long, this is the kind of excitement Herb and I thrive on (you know, like the time when we had 12 hours notice before becoming parents).  These are GOOD problems!

In the meantime, don't be surprised if you don't see much on this old bloggy space in the next two weeks.  And if you are interested in some panicked packing/purging/moving, shoot me a line!

Thank you, God, for answered prayers.

  1. I don't know how much help I'd be with packing seeing that I am always chasing around my busy little boy, but if you ever need to drop Levi off anywhere, I'd be more than happy to chase after him as well :)

    Excited for you guys! Praying and trusting that He has the perfect home for you guys. He doesn't plan day by day, He planned this all forever ago! :-)

  2. Wish I was closer so I could help you pack, but like Jenna mentioned above, I'd spend more time chasing my busy boy than actually helping! Hope everything goes smoothly. Can't wait to hear more details and see where God places you!!
