We have had some interesting changes to our journey as of late...
It's always so interesting to me when we make our plans, but God directs the steps that we take.
As you know, we are moving to Colorado soon... our hope was that our kids would get to finish up the school year, and we would make the jump May 31st.
WE have been working to buy more time in our home, so as to stay. It is due to foreclose on April 19th.
Just 5 weeks before our initial move date.
That is a whole 'nother story...we have been in our home for 3 going on 4 years morgage free because we filed bankruptcy after my husband lost his job way back.
His drop in pay was so significant, that we could keep up with the bills any longer.
We had been looking to see if we could stay with friends or family after the house foreclosed, for that 5 weeks inbetween time, so the kids could finish school. There just hasn't been anybody.
A friend suggested talking with a realtor and seeing if we could short-sale our home, stopping the foreclosure process, so in turn we could stay in our home until our move date.
So we did. We started the whole short-sale process, got a offer on the house, and are now waiting to see if the bank will put the brakes on the foreclosure.
But that isn't the interesting part.
The interesting part is this.
Last week, my hub's boss approached him and told him regretfully they were going to have to cut my hubby's job.
There were some changes that went into affect, and his boss was holding off as long as he could, so that he could keep my hub on until we moved.. but his boss said that he couldn't hold off any longer, and had to let my hubby go.
So he gave him 3 more weeks of work.
And get this... his last day of work is the same week our home is foreclosing... April 19th.
There is a scripture that comes to mind... " I will make my plans, but You direct my steps."
I have never in all my days seen such a blatant direction change from God then this one.
Just a continued re-direction of when we needed to leave.
We tried all the doors.
knocked on this one.
knocked on that one.
jiggled this knob.
jiggled that one.
So, that is a bit of what is going on.... excited and scared and unsure and holding on for dear life is the range of emotions going on.
Kmarie and I talked last week, as I shared what was going on before we knew Bobby (my hub) was going to lose his job. I told her, it feels like the same emotions I felt when I was getting married.
Getting ready for take off....yeeks and smiles all wrapped up into one :)
