to buy or not to buy… with the current housing market we are not sure if buying is the right thing to do. We found a house in the area we would like, but are worried about the next few years.. what if we move and need to sell? What about all of the thousands of new homes they continue to build in the same area? What if …..
It all comes down to trust. I can’t see into the future. God transcends time and already knows. I suppose in a few weeks if we haven’t put an offer on the house we are looking at we won’t be moving and John will deploy. The kids and I will make do in our post house and perhaps put cheesecloth between us and the vents ( all of the sickness and death of babies I am starting to blame on this house!) God will provide for all that we need.
In today’s gospel we read from St Matthew:
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 6,19-23.
Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and decay destroy, and thieves break in and steal.
But store up treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor decay destroys, nor thieves break in and steal.
For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.
The lamp of the body is the eye. If your eye is sound, your whole body will be filled with light;
but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be in darkness. And if the light in you is darkness, how great will the darkness be.
We can be happy anywhere and without a beautiful home to call our own. So our kitchen cabinets in this house are at an angle ( all eggs will fall to the floor) The mice better find another home, and yes, we will get a storage unit if we don’t move to get the gym out of the dining room, and third princess bed out of my friend’s garage!)
Where our heart is, our treasure will be.
