...God cracks up.
Or at least this is what I think happens. Life in general never quite seems to happen the way we think or plan. Things typically get turned upside down, swirled about, and spit back out into a completely different story line.0
This is what's been going on with the Burleson household. Remember this post, you know that one about us moving to the mountains? Well that's been put on hold-big time. Seems God is closing that door for now, for reasons I don't honestly understand. Coming to this conclusion was like watching a dream crumble apart in pieces. The hubs even got a small pay cut due to Obama's military cuts, which just added to the frustration of the whole situation.
I won't go into details, but somethings just didn't pan out the way they needed to to get us there. This of course, makes me extremely sad. Oh how I wanted a place to start over fresh! Meet new people! Actually find a church home! And as my grandpa always says, "have places to go, people to see, and things to do!"
This is just not what's gonna happen right now. Honestly, I'm still hoping its in the cards for the future, but right now-this little town in NC will be our home.
I NEVER wanted to call this place home, but I'm praying that the Lord will change that in me. I'm praying that He'll help me turn this house that I highly dislike into a real home, and that I won't despise this town so much. I want to enjoy life here on a regular basis, not long to get over the county line as much as possible. I'm REALLY trying to change my heart here, or more correctly, all HIM to change the heart in me.
There are some pretty cool things that may possibly be happening in the future. I may be starting a small biz with my mom (more details later!) which has me really excited!
Also, if you don't follow me through my Facebook, then you probably didn't see our announcement about the little BOY we're having! This came as a complete shock to the hubs and I (we just knew we were having another girl!) \, but we are seriously over-the-moon about the whole thing! His name is gonna be London Henley, and again-we're just stupid excited about this kid! Not moving at the moment will definitely keep the stress levels down since little bit will be appearing in less than four months from now!
In the meantime, since I no longer have to have a neutral home for showing-I'm getting back to trying to make this house a home. I'm purging the kitchen right now, in hopes that within the next month-we can take down our top kitchen cabinets and replace with shelves. So stay tuned for a ton of home decor/improvement posts and pictures!
So that's what's been keeping me away from you guys the past month-what have you all been up to? Ready for Spring to show up?
