Today's a pretty big day for me. First of all, we are closing on the sale of our house in Fort Smith. It's very bittersweet. Financially, I am SO grateful to have sold it so fast and without having to pay a hefty commission. But my heart is still sad. That was our longest-lasting address since getting married almost 15 years ago, so a lot of our hearts, souls, and memories are tied up with that house.
The other big news is that I'm guest posting over at Hip Homeschool Moms again. Hooray! (If you are stopping by from HHM, Welcome! I promise I'm not usually this melancholy. :) )
I think it's no accident that my guest post coincides with closing on our house. I wrote the post a few weeks ago without a posting date, but it's all about the sometimes-disappointing expectations surrounding things that are "new." God knew that I would need to be reminded of some truths today, and I hope that He will also use it somehow in someone else's life.
I would be honored if you clicked HERE to go over and read my post. Thanks for stopping by!
