I haven’t done an update on our blog for a while now. Between work, family, and trying to make the most of summer it’s been busy.
We are trying to stay positive with the search for a renter for our home. Just when we think you have found the perfect person to rent our home, something has fallen short. Either the timing is off, or the person just doesn’t have the budget to rent a whole house. The hardest part is that we’ve met some amazing people via email through our blog post that I shared on Facebook. Each of these individuals I would have been thrilled for them to rent our home, but it just didn’t work out financial for them and I understand that. Thank you for those who shared the post, it’s really helped but we have to keep searching.
I guess in the back of my mind when I think of the person that will rent our home I really want them to feel blessed.
Blessed that they can live in such a bright, and amazing space. I want our home to make them feel so darn happy and lucky to live in our space for a while that they feel like they’ve won the jackpot. I guess that’s how I feel when I come home, so naturally I guess I’m hoping they will too. You never know? God Knows perfectly how they will feel, and who they are. He knows all their needs, desires just like mine. He marvels in them!
I’m remaining as patient as I can be, and it’s a good thing that I’m married to a very patient man. My style is to push through, and wait less. I’m learning to grow in God’s timing not my own. It seems like Darryl and I go through faith changes. One month I take the lead on challenging us, and the next he makes me a better waiter, a way to grow with God, not before God.
A good, friend told me in an email this week….
Waiting is the hardest part. God doesn’t take you this far and then leave..
Thanks for reading,
Darryl and Jodi.
