We are now officially "houseless". To be honest, it is so weird to know someone else is living in my house. I was wondering yesterday if the neighbor kids went and said hello. I am going to miss them so much. I am going to miss so much about that house. This is the house Jarred proposed to me in. This is the house we lived in after we got married. This is the house I lived when I finally finished school. This is the house we lost one baby. This is the house we had one baby. This is the house that I was in day and night on bedrest to have that baby. This is the house that I loved for so many years. I thank God for the many lessons and memories and blessings in that house. I pray that God blesses the new home owner just as he did Jarred and I.

The new homeowner is single and only moving in 10 boxes, I think we moved out 187 boxes...yikes.
It was funny to us that he is in Jarred's exact situation when he moved in. I wonder if by the time he moves out he will have meet the girl of his dreams and started a family like we did. I pray so.

This is what I am really going to miss. This is the tree that I saw through the doors of my living room while laying on the couch. I remember laying on the couch and praying. I prayed when I lost the baby, this was one of the hardest things I had to go through in that house. I remember looking out at that tree and being so upset that all I could do was cry out to God. I think this was the turning point in my relationship with God and I am so thankful for that. I remember after being put on bedrest laying on the couch again and crying out to God to protect this new baby. This was one of the scrarest things I had to go through in that house. I am going to miss that tree. I took several pictures of it and I plan on framing it in my new house.

Pray that we found the right house for us. I want it to be right where we need to be.

  3. Your new house will hold wonderful memories also. I'm sure that you will love it just as much, if not more! It will be the house where you raise your little girl, and nothing is more important than that! Don't be sad my friend, God will lead you through this as He has everything else :)
