Yes, We are Moving
The time has come for us to leave our rurally located, rustic, charming log home, and venture north one hour to the area in which my dad works. We will be living closer to two larger cities, both of which are beautiful, and have lovely stores, and there will me many more opportunities for my two brothers and I... I to sell my jewelry in the shops, and my brothers to maybe start a business of their own. Mama is also planning on starting a Music Studio and teaching voice lessons, and I will be brushing up my piano skills and teaching beginner piano lessons. :)
I am feeling lots of emotions about the move, the top ones being excitement, interest, a small regret that we must leave our gorgeous God-given house, expectancy, and a feeling of uncertainty. We don't have a house picked out yet... or at least 'officially' picked out yet... we have seen quite a few lovely homes in the area that would be best for my dad to drive to work from, and there is one in particular that has a creek in the yard with a quaint little bridge over it that my brothers and I are especially fond of... so we shall see what comes of that. :D
Once we move, I am sure Daddy will enjoy not having to commute 2 hours (1 there, 1 back) every day except Saturday... we also attend a sweet homechurch group that mostly meets up in Peachtree City, and when we move we will be able to get together with some of the families and do activities together on weekdays, not just when we're up there for church on Sunday.
We have been pondering this move for about a year, so I've had some time to get used to the idea, and I am very excited to see what chapter I'm about to journey through in this new season of life and what my Lord has in store for my family and I... I have a feeling he has something special and wonderful waiting for us.
So far, we have had two unofficial 'showings' of our house that had us working like busy beavers to make sure everything was in "apple-pie order"... and since we are planning on listing it on the market later this week, I am sure we will be kept on our toes working to keep everything nice and tidy in case somebody surprises us with a sudden request to see the house. :) We have a wonderful realtor though, and I am confident that she will do her best for us. She helped us buy this home four years ago and bent over backwards to do everything she could for us! I have absolute confidence that she will do just as good a job this time as she did then. :)
My family and I would appreciate your prayers for us in this time of change. Thank you! :)
