A New Home…

Prayerfully, within the next few weeks we will be in a new house! The doors are opening up for us to be closer to the churches that I am serving at, so that we can minister to the people and visit when needed.  Here’s the details:

  • 3 bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths
  • HUGE family room and living room; the family room will be split up into an office and dining area
  • Fully-equipped kitchen, including all appliances AND dishwasher
  • Washer/dryer included
  • Living room fireplace
  • Dual gas grills on the back patio
  • Attic space that can be converted into two or three more bedrooms; it already has a floor and would just need sheetrock hung and ductwork covered.
  • Large garage
  •  Underground storm shelter
  • Outdoor area to put our pool and trampoline
  • Place to hang a hammock   🙂
  • Corral to have horses (for Jeannie)

Now, the drawbacks:

  • 32 miles one-way to my workplace every day
  • 18 miles from Brookfield, the closest Wal-Mart

So, as you can tell, there are more positives than negatives. I know that one day, when I am in the ministry full-time, the drive won’t matter; and it is a beautiful house, with nice open-air country living, and a spectacular view of the surrounding area. I know that it will be a good place to just relax and slow down our hectic lifestyle. And, even though I know that we will be busy in the ministry a lot of time…that is being busy for the Lord, and it’s a lot different than being busy JUST to be busy.

Our target move date is the middle of this month. So pray for us.
