We were eating Dove chocolates at leadership last night and reading all the 'cute' little sayings on the inside of the wrapper. The first one I ate said "Patience is a virtue." Very clique. Very over used. Very true.
We put in another offer on Sunday night. This is our 2nd official one, and our 4th 'unofficial'. I am so over the waiting process. I'm tired of putting in what should be a strong offer, only to be out done by someone else. I need to realize that we did our best. Now it's up to the bank to agree.
I'm done with drawing up floor plans to see where to put our stuff. I'm done with picking out colors for different rooms. I'm done with imagining what changes we need to make. I'm done with looking up "how to's" for the wide array of problems we've seen.
I am now waiting on the Lord. He has the perfect place for us. Something that won't stretch us on monthly payments. Something that won't drain every last dime from us. Some place that is just the right size and the right place with the right neighbors to build relationships with.
Make me know Your ways, O LORD;
Teach me Your paths.
Lead me in Your truth and teach me,
For You are the God of my salvation;
For You I wait all the day.
