1 month and counting...

We are in Raleigh this weekend looking for jobs and a home. I can't believe it's been 7 months since we came down to see SouthEastern (SEBTS) and decide if this was where we felt God's call. Well, having made the choice, we are facing even more decisions in the next month.

We left on Thursday night for a long 4 day weekend. Friday, I had an interview for an accounting placement firm and on Monday I have another. Hopefully, one of the two will be able to help me find a permanent position close to Wake Forest.

On Saturday, we met with a husband and wife realtor team from FM Realty. Adam randomly called the office and a woman, Kaye, answered the phone. We set up an appointment to see some rentals and sales. We looked from 10:00AM to 4:00PM and were exhausted by the time it was all said and done. Over the course of the day we discovered they too were Christians. They blessed our meal at lunch, invited us to their church, and even told us they'd be praying for our decision. They weren't pushy by any means, but went above and beyond by showing us properties that weren't even on our list. When I was showing homes, I didn't like to show more than 5 or 6 at a time. We probably looked at 10 to 12 homes. It was overwhelming, but we were limited on our time. We did find a few homes that we LOVED. Two were brand new and the other was built in the late 80's.

This was the one I LOVED.

This is the same size as the one I loved and right next door, but isn't as pretty and doesn't have the covered back patio with ceiling fan.

This is the older one that Adam LOVED. It had old appliances in the kitchen, but huge built in bookshelves in the spare bedroom.

We don't know whether or not we'll rent or buy, but on the way back from looking I got this overwhelming feeling that we should just BE STILL and WAIT ON THE LORD. We can't do anything without jobs anyhow, and we surely wouldn't close until after we plan to move. We have no choice but to wait.

On Sunday we went to church with our realtors to Crossroads Fellowship Church. It was large and the message was good and Biblical, but we still want to check out some other churches before we make a decision.

We'll be headed home tomorrow. Please pray for us over the next few weeks as we make decisions and find jobs.

Hi Kids!

Sounds like you have had a very busy weekend! I'm continuing to pray for the Lord's will as you "wait on Him" for answers and direction.

Waiting with you!

Love you so much!
