Happenings Here

     Just a little of what has been happening at our house. Not that I have mentioned it before, but we still have a townhouse for sale in Augusta, GA. Our son was in school there, and we purchased it when he went to school. Purchasing seemed like a good idea, and was actually cheaper than rent. The problem was is that we purchased in the height of the housing market, and well, we all know what it is like now. So needless to say, a year later we still have it for sale. We have had many lookers just no buyers. This is and old picture, but thought I would share with you. I would love it if you would be willing to pray for it to sell. We know God has a reason even if we don't know what that is.
     Last night started the Beth Moore study on James: "Mercy Triumphs".This is very different from the previous studies, and challenges us to move beyond just the normal Bible study. There are 5 different levels that you can choose to participate at and level 5 being to memorize the entire book of James! We will have a project to participate in each week, so we can be not just "hearers of the word", but "doers" also. This weeks project is to "Feed the Poor". When we left we each were asked to take a paper grocery bag, and given a list of staple items to fill it with. There are probably at least 100 or more women combined in all of the sessions, so that will be a lot of bags of groceries. I hope to get a picture next week . What a great idea to incorporate w/ each study. We will not know what the next project will be, until the next week. Looking forward to sharing with you.

     I am feeling a little under the weather, so that's all I have today. I am trying to be more consistent at posting, one of my goals this year. What's been happening at your house the beginning of this new year?

Blessing to you all.

We had our house on the market for about 4 months, but took it off in Oct. So, I know exactly how you feel. Planning to relist in March...they say the spring is the best time to sell.I guess we will see! We, too, are trusting in God's timing.

Sorry you are feeling under the weather...hope you feel better soon.
Like you I want to post more consistently and unfortunately at the busiest time of my day job!
I also want to build my Etsy shop more consistently.

Like you, we also have a house on the market that has not sold. It is my parents' home in PA. We needed to move them nearer to one of my siblings and I know that is weighing on their minds. So, like you, I trust God to show us more of Himself in the sale of the house.

Good luck with selling your townhouse. It is such a hard time for real estate. I lived in Augusta many moons ago and loved that area.
