House: officially closed this afternoon. We move out the 24th.
8 months of being on the market, showings, hassles.

6 years of living, loving, playing, raising babies:

Four years of running around in our little Passat:
As of today:
no house, no car, no job.
Emotions: all over the board.
"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and He shall direct thy paths."

Thank you. Now I can stop checking your blog.

Hold on dear sister! This too shall pass and then you might just get bored with life. :o)

We are praying for you!

As others miss you, I will welcome will plenty here! But why sell the are you going to get here.....! BUT, while I have never "left" home, I do understand there will be tears, memories, all that stuff going on and I hope we all sympathize. I do know you will have a lovely place to live...I wouldn't mind having that house myself! Lovely view with water, moutains, and oh yes, wind!!! Welcome to Idaho, Tadd, Brooke, Ezra, and Caroline Avy. Love, Auntie Avy

Uggh, I know all about the mixed feelings. So glad we have the Lord to put ALL of our trust in :) Praying for you guys!

So,you are moving to Idaho? Aberdeen? Wow, what a change! I hope the packing and the transition to a new house goes smoothly. Do you have a house already in ID? Take lots of pictures and maybe some home video to remind your kids of their first home, as memories fade so quickly! Praying for you all!

Brooke said...

Thank you all for your kind comments and words of encouragement! I know that many of you have already walked this same path of change and hold the same Hand we are clinging too.

Your house was sold by a Stacey (spelled the "right" way)? I thought Stacey was a name for fine and upstanding citizens. But if this Stacey sold your house, thus facilitating your move to Idaho, I'll have to rethink my position. :)

(Praying for you!!!)

Wow, Brooke!
What a lot to deal with all at once, I can imagine the roller coaster feeling, I know it!
I remember when we listed out house in Alberta. We were unsure if it was the right move and had been praying about what to do and where to live for three years. Finally with two kids and loads of debt we decided to go for it.
The morning that the house was to be listed we had an offer above asking with no conditions during the agent tour.
It was like the Lord was kicking us out the door.
We moved jobless and completely living on faith.
I felt like I could throw up at any moment for days, it was scary and exciting all at once.

I hope and pray everything goes well for you guys, you have your faith in the right place and that is all that matters.
He will carry you.
Not only that but if you really are moving to ID I am sure you will have such fun. Of course since a few, or three guys from there have snatched up cousins of mine from here I know you will have good company;-)
