Time to Pack

We listed our house and sold it in two weeks!! It was an amazing blessing! We had it on the market last year for 6 months and not a single offer. We sure showed it plenty of times though. I turn into this witchy mom who forbids her kids from getting out lots of stuff and making messes because we MIGHT have to show the house. Heavenly Father must have known I couldn't have handled it again for so long. All the prayers didn't hurt either. Now it's garage sale time on Saturday and we have to be out by the end of the month.
We found a rental yesterday and signed a 6 month lease. We can start slowly moving in on Saturday, the 20th. That gives us 10 days to take our time. Is that good or bad?It is about 5 blocks from the kids school so we will be walking and riding bikes more often. Fun! It's a cute 4 bedroom, not very big, no pantry, which I will miss, but we'll manage for a short term stay. We are still in the ward, so we are very happy.
Willie is looking for work now because Keystone Homes is closing shop. He has applied for jobs here in Arizona and also in other states. I know the Lord will bless us and we will soon find a great job . I am constantly amazed at the blessings our family receives each day. Family, friends, and ward members are praying for our family and I feel so blessed and comforted and humbled by their simple acts of love for us.
I am so very grateful to have the gospel in my life to give me guidance and direction. I know Heavenly Father has a plan for us and I am so grateful for our Savior, Jesus Christ. I know he loves me and loves each one of us. I know that if we trust in the Lord, we will be blessed.

You sold your house??? Is that good or bad? I'm excited to hear that your staying in Sierra Vista for a while--because we love that place/ward. Good luck with the job hunt.
