This is me . . .

Tuckered out. My body and my mind are flattened out. Whipped out. Wrung out.

This has been a crazy week of house hunting. I have lost count of the houses we have driven by and man the miles we put on our car.

We have a unique situation in our house search:

  • We are in ministry. Our ministry doesn't show as a 'job' to most people. So they are concerned about our financial stability.
  • We hoped for a property that we could take our horse and 2 donkeys
  • We hoped for a property that would accomodate us and my mother if she chose to come and live with us.

We found a wonderful house yesterday afternoon that we LOVE yes I said LOVE.

Did I mention we LOVE it?

I won't go into all the reasons why this house is perfect for us. One is it is nice, really nice. The kitchen isn't updated. The bathrooms aren't updated. But that is o.k. with me. It has 2 living areas. An eating area in kitchen and a formal dining room. A pool and a hot tub.

Yes we LOVE this house!

And, it is minutes from our church so I could do ladies Bible study again. We could arrange our schedule to go on Wednesdays again and we could change our chapel service time a little and make it to at least part of Sunday School.

But with all good things sometimes there's a downside.

We cannot take our horse and the two mini donkeys. This is a huge sadness for me. And, has been a burden to me to even consider it. We have had the horse since he was 3. He is 22 now. We are looking for a Good home for him. We are willing to give him away to the right family.

Dear sweet Company Girl friends would ya'll pray for us. And please pray that God brings the right family to us for 'Pal'. We want him to be happy and to be well cared for.

I know this post didn't mention any simple things done this week. Mostly because I really didn't do any. Although I have read all of Rachel Anne's posts.

My kitchen sink was already done because I took everything out when the grandbaby started walking. So, I didn't log those points so girlfriends some of you are ahead of me.

I do plan to do something today for me. And I am considering it to be baking some bread. I have been doing some baking the last couple of weeks. I love baking bread!

I hope you all have a wonderful day treating yourselves.

Thanks for coming by and thanks for your prayers!

Praise God for providing a house, although I hear you about not wanting to leave the horse behind. I have a 27 year old quarter horse I love love love and would be devasted to leave. Will be praying for good new home for yours!

I hope you will be able to find a good home for our horse and donkeys. It is hard to part after all those years.

Sounds like an amazing house! I hope you find a good home for your pets...I know it's a hard thing to do. If you are in KS, by chance, I have a friend there who just might be interested.

Praying with you about all of it - the house, your animal friends, your ministry and God's guidance and peace.

I just prayed for you and for your situation! I hope you can find a lovely place for the horse and peace with your decision. Interestingly, we have the opposite problem. We have plenty of space but my husband won a dog last night that we have no idea what to do with !!!!
