Bethany and I are knee deep in house hunting. While we separated our records and dvds with our roommate Sarah last night, we discussed our future plans. T minus three weeks and we’ll be without our pretty little Rosemont home. The air’s definitely beginning to get a bit thicker as we try and figure out a quick plan of action while still trying to maintain composure (and sanity!). It’s funny how things work in life, huh? Everything is stable, life is great, you’re in your routine and then ‘BOOM!’, God throws you a curve ball. Something completely out of the blue knocks you in your head and leaves you on your knees.
We definitely know that He is demolishing this home for us to move onto bigger and better things, but we honestly have no clue where He wants us right now. I kind of think that’s the beauty in all of this. Yes, we’re scared and confused and upset at the thought of having to move out of our beautiful house with our great roommate Sarah, but at the same time, there’s a new adventure out there waiting for us.
I can’t wait to see where we end up in less than a month.
One of the things that Bethany and I discovered when we became steadfast friends was that we both had a love for adventure. It’s true, when we first started talking about future dreams with one another, we envisioned hopping in an airstream and traveling the U.S. selling vintage goods and having out-of-this-world experiences along the way. We never actually thought about the adventures that might present themselves in the meantime! One thing we know for sure is that God has an amazing way of making our plans form into bigger and better visions that He has for us. Just yesterday, we got a phone call from our landlord that in less than one month our house is going to be demolished! Instead of stressing about where we will be living, we’ve decided to have a good chuckle and let God take the reigns of our future. It’s an exciting time and not knowing what the future (especially the next month, goodness!) holds is something that has quite possibly turned into a very unexpected adventure that is yet to fully reveal itself.
We both hope that you’ll join us on these exciting days ahead, and this moving adventure will be quite a crazy ride! Stay tuned for stories, pictures, videos, and other nonsense that will be happening in the next 30 days.
