Years ago we found a piece of land and decided to list our house, buy the land and build a house. Our plan was easy, simple. The land was in our dream neighborhood. We listed the house and it sold just two days later. But, the owner of the land sold to another couple that they already knew. At the time I thought why didn't we list the house with a contingency? Why did we even try this? Woulda Coulda Shouldas...filled my days.
It threw us for a tailspin. Life upside down. What were we going to do? For months I was upset and stressed out trying to make something work. We moved to a house where the owner of the land wanted to split it. We pushed for it. It didn't go well and it was a struggle. Month later we realized, it wasn't going to work...we moved again.
Time went by and we weren't able to find anything where we were looking. It was all I could talk about and think about. One day I was with my sister and brother in law. He took me aside and said. "You need to find a house". I said..I know. He said "No, a house of God. Find a church."
The next day I called a friend who said she liked her church. And we went...we were home. After years of looking for the right fit in a church. We'd found it. We were home. It took another year for us the find our house in the country.
Our struggles brought us closer as a family. Often I forget that as the day to day stresses take over. Life has it's ups and downs, I've come to realize one thing. Everything does happen for a reason.
