"This life therefore, is not godliness but the process of becoming godly, not health but getting well, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise. We are not now what we shall be, but we are on the way. The process is not yet finished, but it is actively going on. This is not the goal, but it is the right road. At present, everything does not gleam and sparkle, but everything is being cleansed." --Martin Luther

Well, we started the process of giving notice to our renters to be out of the house. We are on schedule to have them move on September 15th, but it may be a week or two later depending on how things work.
That means we start our own process of moving back to our house since it has not sold.
It’s not like we didn’t know it would ever happen. We knew if it didn’t sell we would move back this fall because we didn’t want to move in the middle of winter if our renters had to leave for some reason. So in a sense it is better to decide and do it now and move before it snows and gets icky. The house we are living in has not sold yet either, so (at this point) we don’t have to be out by a certain date. We’ll do some cleaning in Kandi and a little remodeling work, then take a little time moving. But really, once you start moving, all you want to be is done!
There are just a lot of questions. We obviously can’t live here forever, so again we knew we’d be moving at some time. The owners of this house have been generous beyond what we could imagine. We were really hoping our house would sell though.
It’s just~there are some things we are thinking and looking at doing, and as I sat around the table the other day praying with our “community”, I thought-how can we ever do this in our house in Kandiyohi?
Brian’s work is steady, for now. But it’s seasonal at this point. Once the snow flies, we don’t know what he will do (good thing God does-looking for a hint any time now…). That fits in with a few things in a sense, but there is still the question of income.
We have two ministry opportunities-one around here, the other not. Both could be a fit, but which one? I question whether we are ready for either. I wonder how our location affects them. I wonder how Brian’s employment affects them. I wonder how other happenings fit into and affect them. I wonder how God can think I can handle all this wondering!!!
