Big House Decisions

We are thinking about moving houses. Yes, I know that we live in a beautiful home in the country....I have thought about this decision for many months now. We have gone back and forth at least a half dozen times and each time we decide to ponder it a little longer. Maybe THIS will be another one of those times...I don't know really.

As the boys are getting older and beginning to stay busy with their own jobs that are away from the house we realize that the workload of all this land and animals is a lot to do, especially for me. Since I still have little ones to care for I find that I don't have the time, nor do I care to invest the time that it takes, daily, to care for them all. We have thought about the positives of living in town where all things are much more accessible again, and I really love that idea. Den is ready to just make me happy. He realizes that my utmost goal in our marriage, besides serving the Lord, is to be submissive to him and to his dreams, and I have tried to live out each one of his dreams. However, NOW, he is ready to make my life easier. I am not sure what I really want to do. I see the pros and cons to both situations. So we are going to pray about it. We are going to start setting things in motion while earnestly seeking the Lord and see how the Lord works things out. Does God care where I live? Ohhhhh probably not, but I know that when we take all things to God, all things will matter. So here it is God, have a look-see, and let us know which way will bring about contentment in our lives.....

I can understand your desire to move more in. I hope that you are pleased with whatever comes.

Hi Trina
I believe that God does take interest in where we live ..... he has a plan of us at every stage of our life.... even when we don't see it. That is wonderful of Den to be thoughtful towards you .... and well done for being submissive to him. Sounds like you both have a wonderful relationship.

He gives you the desires of your heart.

I will be prayer for Den and your clarity on this situation.

It would be a hard decision to make. I love your home in the country, but I can see how it would be a lot of work. I would love it if you would move back to this part of town!

Sounds like the perfect solution to me...give it all to Him. He will lead you in the direction He wants to take you.
I do love that land and farm you live on...it is my dream place...but I couldn't keep up with it either. :-(

Well, it sounds like you've been busy lately! Your young men are thinking of moving themselves, huh? Wow, it just doesn't seem like they could be. They aren't much older than me! I wish you best in your endeavor. I wonder where you were on Thursday?

We just prayfully mad a 'big' house decision too. It's a bit scary but I know it's what the Lord wants us to do.
We moved from a 3,300sq.ft. house to a 700sq.ft. apartment. It was hard giving up all the extra bathrooms, what a luxury. I also have to do my laundry outside, which I'm thankful for. At first we were going to have to go to a laundry place.
Will pray that you all find the right house.
Blessings,
