And our inspector gadget friend has become our go-to man for advice on our home as we make changes, repairs and mistakes.
Now I can't wait. Let me in. Give me the keys. I am ready.

But we have been thinking about how to use our carpet allowance. We have a certain amount of money the seller has agreed to pay in order to redo the floors. This is because they had a cat whose litter box was in a hall closet. Yucko man. Who would put urine and feces in a small, unventilated area meant for coats?
So what do we do? Carpet? Part carpet part laminate floors? Laminate floors instead of the tile in the kitchen? Can we install laminate on our own? Is it worth paying someone else to sweat and swear their way through it? Who knows. If you have any thoughts please feel free to share.
the inspection is scheduled for monday. You may join us in praying God would protect us financially!

And I start fresh, with new, young, sweet girls who need to be shown the love of Christ and the freedom that comes from trusting in Him for salvation. I get four years with them, Lord willing, to stuggle our way through growing pains, asking God to make Himself known. This is a bitterSWEET calling. Some days its too much to handle, and others its too wonderful to imagine anything else.

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep, loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."

Thanks for praying with us. We trust God, not our decision-making skills, not our realtor, and not the bank. The Creator of the Universe is sufficient for us.

So here goes, two non-commital, easy-going, slow decision-makers are about to take the Jacksonville housing market by storm.
