It all happened so fast. One day in April we decided the SabinDome was not to be. So, we listed it with AI Domes and had a potential buyer within the week. We are hoping to close the deal in July if all goes well.
Then, after pondering our life without a dome, we began dreaming of a life with only one income. That dream was a lot bigger. It required more faith. And a smaller mortgage. So... we set about finding a less expensive place to live and tenants for the house we had been in for almost 5 years.
And this is where the fast part came. We found a new place and moved last week. I've lived in our new town in central FL for only 5 days. Instead of having an acre to take care of, we now have 1300+ sf of town home to call our own. No more lawn work! I've spent my last 3 weekends packing up some of our belongings and dreaming about our fresh start. It is amazing how much stuff one can accumulate in 5 years time.
Honestly, I am grateful for an opportunity to start over again and try to live the life I know God wants for me. We purposefully chose to move to a town home community so that Charlotte and I would have neighbors. I want to meet these neighbors and invite them over for simple meals. I've given up my fancy china and hope that a warm smile and a meal prepared with joy will be enough to help them see God's love.
I have a gazillion thoughts swirling around my head right now about the changes in our life. I hardly know how to share it all coherently. I'll try to get it out in bits and pieces over the next few weeks.
Bear with me... I have a lot on my plate right now and I need time to sort it all out. Praise God that I get to spend more time with my baby!
