You may remember about a year ago I was putting my house on the market. Well, it showed like crazy (averaging 7-10 times a week for the whole year) but I never did receive an offer. As it came time for me to renew my contract, I started reconsidering why it was on the market in the first place.
Initially I was convicted about the amount of money that was going into the three bedroom home. While I don't believe it was wrong for me to live in the house, I felt that as a single woman I could be just as comfortable in a small studio apartment for much less money thus allowing me to be more charitable with the resources God had given me to steward.
I still feel the same way however, no longer am I a single woman living alone in the house... as of this weekend I am a woman engaged to be married and will likely be starting a family sometime in the years to come. Suddenly, the house seems appropriate to keep.
So much to the relief & excitement of many friends & loved ones, the house is off the market and so am I. And that my friends, is quite an update if you ask me. :-)
