The Time Has Come To Leave The Farm

We found out that our landlord wants to retire and move here to the farm. He had originally told us that he "might" want to retire here "some day" so we had hoped for a few more years at least. We saw this coming- a premonition of sorts but we are still very sad and dreading the work and stress of another move. This farm was a miracle for us and I don't know why it has come to an end but God does and I rest in that. We know that the Lord has something else for us and I know it will be good once we SEE it!

We might have to move as early as August but then again, it could be another year. I can't quite wrap my head around it yet! I'm already looking for another place since places in the country that are affordable are not easy to find. I looked for this place for months before it came up but I'm hoping for an easier find this time around. I can hope- right?

Your love, prayers and friendship are appreciated so much! More than anything else in the world, I just want to settle down and play house and NEVER have to pack another box again. Will that dream ever some true for me? We'll see.

Sad to hear this. My husband and I are sort of in a "what's next" situation too. I'd LOVE to be out in the middle of some rural county with some land. Prayers to you! Good luck! :)

Years ago, I was going to buy a home...I had no idea where, when or what...But, I knew to start packing. My mom laughed at my silliness--that I was already packing for a place I had yet to find. Come to find out, I found a condo, within my price range(which was VERY little) in a beautiful lakeside community AND, I closed on it within 30 days. The previous owners where missionaries heading to Africa and needing to sell her home fast.

This too shall pass...I have moved so much in the past that I learned to see it as a new adventure. Something of a new place to put my sweet finds. You will find a forever home and a new place to put those darling finds. Smiles...Renee

As sad as it is, I am really excited about the new adventure you will be having. I really didn't want to move out of our home 7 years ago, but my husband insisted we needed a one story with less room, as we were down to one child at home. I would have stayed there forever, but I figured he was right. A piece of land popped up with an old run down home which we tore down and built ours. Now I see this is so perfect for us and I am so happy. I wouldn't trade it for the old place! Just imagine how wonderful the next place will be and how much fun you are going to have turning it into your Cutie Pie Cottage. I'm going to start praying for a beautiful little cottage in the country to appear for you!
Hugs,
Julie

We live in a rented country home and I have fears that we will have to move before we find a place to buy. My heart goes out to you. I do know this much, wherever you go, there will always be a Cutie Pie Cottage. :)

I know how very happy you have been in your home...it's so hard to pack up and leave. I just know that God will lead you to your next happy home...He loves us all so much and wants us to be joyful.

Julie said...

I sure hope you'll find a forever home soon. I know how hard moving is (I just did it 6 months ago), and how much you must be dreading it. I will keep you in my prayers.

Oh Holly, I am so sorry. I know how you feel, I spent most of my childhood moving at least every two years. I just always wanted a home to never have to leave again. I know that this is coming for you. And I believe that something better is even in store for you. I look forward to seeing God's plans for you and the next Cutie Pie Cottage! Sandie
