So here's the very latest: Our house is being lowered 5k every 2 weeks until it sells. (I'm kind of over that whole thing...I think I've made my peace with it. And thanks for listening on that one.)
As we were in Seattle, there was talk of Micah sharing a basement in some guy's house with Andy (the guy Micah will be working with for the next 2 years) a couple nights a week until we get a house up there! I just about barfed. That seems to me to be the last straw. I am ready to be apart from my friends, damage my credit and take a loss on my house, move to "who knows where" at "who knows when:30" and rent a house (so, probably no painting or knocking out walls), but to have my family separated for the majority of the week and weekends is not ok with me! I don't really know what else to say about it. Micah and I have often had arguments about ministry being "his job" vs. a "we're in this together" thing. This seems to me to drive home the "his job" side of it. It just seems so separate! It's hard to be "us" in that. (AND, I just really like to have that guy around! He is my best friend). But, all that gets me pretty nervous.
So, I guess there's some stuff going on, I just wish something was happening! There really doesn't seem to be a sign of a move on the horizon. And, I have to admit that I'm having a hard time keeping the faith that God will (not that he isn't capable) rise above the economy to make a way for us to get there. As a family, we've talked and come to the realization that aside from God stepping in and moving us, we cannot get there on our own! Stay tuned, though, I'm holding on to that mustard seed (by the way, we bought some mustard seeds and they are super small) of faith that God will step in and do something. I'm hoping to share it with you.
