There’s No Place Like Home

We have poured our guts into this, our first home.  When we first moved here in May of 2006, it had a mouse and spider infestation, wild paint colors, holes in the walls, lighting from the eighties, and so much more.  We have transformed it in so many ways and today, as we are touching up the paint, trimming the yard, and getting it ready to sell, we are sad and sentimental.  This was our first home, the first home we found out we were expecting and then later brought our newborn baby home to.  I will miss it…but God has big plans waiting for us.  We are going in faith and anticipating His direction.
