ALL Eggs in One Basket

I have never believed in putting all my eggs in one basket when it comes to financial decisions but that is what we are doing. Regardless of others opinions and lack of support we continue to hold out for the house we have been trying to get for FOREVER (we first saw it in June of 2011!). It may not seem wise to anyone and frankly I don't care. We are doing what we feel is right for our family in the long run. I would love nothing more than to move right now but we are going to wait until we get that house I guess no matter how long it takes. I hope it is sooner than later. I've finally put it completely in the Lord's hands, allowing His mercy to take care of what I can't and His atonement to carry me through my emotional/mental/and physical hurdles. 

Prayers in our favor are welcomed and greatly appreciated. Someday that house will be ours--unless the journey and a crushing defeat is the lesson to be learned. I think the former is the case and we sure hope for it. We will make that house beautiful and we are so excited to be able to have room and ability to do so much good. I will have room to hold regular Crafting for Charity nights and we will have room to have others stay/live when emergencies arise. We will have room to store supplies when emergencies arise--enough for us AND others and I can't wait to shop all year long and have a store of items to give to those who need it.  We have done everything in our power to make this happen and we are now turning it over to Him who can move mountains and make more than our wildest dreams come true. Here is to more faith and hope and a lot less worrying.



  1. Don't let anyone shake your resolve or bring you down when you are doing what you know to be right. Only you and Richard know what is right for your family and everyone else can just stuff it. Sending prayers and good thoughts your way.
