Let us not become weary in doing the right thing because at the appointed time we will reap a harvest if we don’t give up. Galatians 6.9 (SMS translation)
It’s no secret that we just sold our mountain/country home of 30 years – a home and acreage, which provided shelter and a safe place for our family and others. To say it was a monumental move would be an understatement.
We are settling nicely in our downtown flat in a historic, circa 1893 house (converted to six rental units) and it feels more like home each day. Hubs hasn’t missed his woodshop yet and has a work table adjacent to my at-home office, just six feet away – at times I feel as though he is spying on me and, IF I go on Amazon Prime I hear, “What are you ordering now?” LOL!!!
If you are a regular reader you know the back story of my OneWord2018 – you can read about that here. I thought for sure I knew my word would be such and such and then the Lord said, “No it is to be REAP.”
He is always right. Always on time. Of that I have no doubt.
The day after our closing we received a scathing text message from the buyer stating that we had lied about some of the items being conveyed with the sale of the property. It was a moment of deep breath and a sudden feeling of being sick. We were in Lowe’s Home Center feeling as free as two old birds, Sam in the shopping cart, and buying a few items for the flat. We looked at one another and said, “WHAT IS HE TALKING ABOUT?”
Now, to explain…we did not lie. He thought he had seen an item when in fact we never had one. And, one of the items was given to a family member – however, because it was a total misunderstanding – we will bring said item to the buyer and be done. Once and for all.
It’s never wrong to do right! Amen?
We’ve ordered our Casita travel trailer, purchased a nice used Nissan truck, we pick up the camper in early November, in Rice, Texas. We hope to make our first trip immediately after that. One of the places we plan to go is to meet in person, my dear blogging friend, Andrew, who writes over at Blessed are the Pure of Heart. We’ve been talking about a real life meeting for more than a year and I’m anxious to make it happen!
Reaping is pleasurable and we are enjoying the blessing. But the sowing will continue – there are a few eternal reaping’s I am counting on and I’ll never, ever give up on those!
Hope lives! Because He lives. Amen?
