I didn't do this enough

I was thinking the other day that I have lived in our house for 6 years and I didn't pick the beautiful roses that were right in my front yard alot to put in the house. They have been so beautiful and I need to put them in the house more.

A week ago Matt and I put our house on the market. We decided whether Matt gets a job here in Southern California or not we should sell it and rent something to be more flexible. The Lord has definately been turing our hearts in a different direction, however, we just want to be where the Lord wants us. We have looked at places to rent and we have not found anything nice in our price range. It is so expensive here! I am learning to be content wherever we go. I have LOVED this house and have thanked the Lord for it so many times. I loved living here. Some people probably didn't like the area or thought it wasn't very nice but it was ours. I remember when our friends moved us in and everyone had left. Matt and I just looked at each other and cried. We cried and thanked God for our home. We were/are so thankful.

To say that Matt and I are in limbo is an understatement. He has applied for so many jobs and has not heard back from one. I don't know what I would do if I did not believe in the sovereignty of God. I know that we will be where God wants us and Matt will have the job that God intends. I am so proud of Matt for how hard he has been trying to get a job.

The situation has weighed on us pretty heavy lately. We had to apologize to each other yesterday for both reaching a breaking point on Saturday. It's not always roses but we are trying hard to stay faithful. We'll keep you posted!
