Staying Put

It is amazing to me how God works. Most, if not all, of you know that we have had our house on the market. We decided to do this back in the fall. There were many nights of discussions over traffic, dinner, and many other things that made us come to the conclusion that we wanted to sell our house and move closer to downtown. We made some preparations and talked through the price with Rusty and on the weekend of October 15 our house went on the market.

However, over the holidays Allison and I were talking about something totally unrelated and we both expressed that we had been having thoughts of taking the house off the market. We both decided we would pray about it, but we were going to leave it on the market and if it didn't sell, oh well. The other night we were flipping channels and randomly landed on Fox Business Channel. On that channel was the Dave Ramsey television show. As many of you also know, we are subscribers to the Dave Ramsey "cash envelope system." Through watching the show and an hour of discussion afterwards, we came to the conclusion that we were going to take the house off the market, pay down some of the other debt that we have (car note, student loans) and then consider moving. As I said earlier, isn't it funny how God works? We prayed about selling the house and thought that is what He wanted us to do, but it appears, at least to us, that He has things for us still here in Smyrna. Until next time...
