Our small, little, cute and cozy house.
A "starter home" as they call it. A home where newlyweds start their lives together. A first place to call our own.
The two couples before us lived in this home for the first three-four years of their marriage, but once they had a child, they moved to a bigger home.
We assumed we would do the same.
We loved the house...and we still do...10 years later and 2 kids later!
Our plans didn't pan out. The times we have tried to sell have been a no go. We laugh sometimes about how long we have been here, and we cry sometimes too. We pray and wonder what God has in store. We joke about living here forever...and we just may...only the Lord knows.
But after 10 years, everything is breaking. Just in the last three months we have replaced the roof, the ac unit, and last week we had to get a new washer. And while it was being delivered we discovered our doorbell is not working!
Everything is breaking! And in return I have days that I feel like I am breaking too! With everything that seems to be going wrong, there are times I don't want to begin the day for fear of what will happen next.
There are so many stories of feeling broken in the Bible, and David is a great example. He could be at his lowest, but yet still praising God.
