Home Sweet Home

I have joyful news to report! The Calm One and I have closed on our very first house.

Honestly, the long and arduous process sucked the joy right out of me there for awhile. I became so preoccupied with the many, many frustrations that it was difficult to remember that my joy should come from the Lord and not the circumstances in which I find myself.

With all that behind us the adventure of being homeowners has begun. And I am excited. And joyful.

And completely anxiety ridden over all the work this new house needs before we can even move into it.

But, nevertheless, joyful.
