"The Dwelling Heart Waltz"

"Home is Where the Heart Is".......or so the saying goes.  I say: "Home is where your stuff is and it's the structure you pay your mortgage on."  It's currently the place that I am sick of not being sold.  How's that for an update?  It's been over a month since I posted so I thought I'd jot down a quick update.

We had an offer on our home.  We booked the packers and movers and a flight for Nick to be there for all the final stuff.  Then, they walked.

It is an amazing thing to trust God in the midst of everything!
I know He is conducting the symphony of our transition.  I trust His rhythm.  Although I wouldn't choose an hour and a half of my wailing-snot-sobbing to take up a few measures, He did.  Being on the market for over 100 days and putting a family of five in a basement of a home with a family of six is trying....BUT... there is always a "but"...

But, as trying as it is, God has given me His Peace. We haven't slid off His radar.  In fact, He is pursuing me each day.  I am eager to hear the debut of the final song.  This Composer is using instruments of pain, longing, stillness, patience, hope, desire, trust and peace.

I believe I'll hear the final arrangement when my home and heart are in the same place in His perfect timing!
