We've been in our house for ten days now. To be home is so sweet, and getting to wake up in this house every day is a dream. There's a ginormous pile of broken-down boxes on the back porch and half of the rooms are clobbered with piles of stuff, but you won't find me complaining. Home cooked meals trump eating out every day, and getting to make a new house into a home for us is so much fun for me. (Except I can't decide on a living room rug-- white flokati or a colorful flat weave? Why are these silly decisions so difficult?)
We've found a church that we love and we're already hosting home group! I've learned with each move to just jump right in, and we've definitely done that this time. Something I've felt really strongly about lately is letting God use this house however He wants. He's blessed us with more than we need and I'm excited to see how He's going to use it for His glory. Chris' parents are especially great at this, and I love seeing the flow of people that God brings into their lives through their hospitality and generosity. They've been a great example for me of keeping our doors open.
I'll be sharing more house pictures as we get settled, and I am really hoping to open the shop back up this month. Life is busy and crazy, but oh-so-good right now.
