This year began with a bang! We had so much fun, but we also had lots of hard work. At the end of January, we decided to begin a new build in Greenfield. Part of our loan agreement stated we’d have our house on the market within seven days. We did it, including working around painters in our house for six of those days who repainted everything along with our kitchen cabinets. That was followed by 23 showings, and a good offer two weeks later. Whew! Now it’s looking for a temporary home for the next few months until our new home is finished.
Because we’ve always wanted to be transparent and not just pretty pictures, there was also heartbreak as one of our daughters ran away in the middle of the night this month. Five hours of searching, detectives, search dogs, and countless neighbors conducting their own search party, she was found. Our family is filled with joy, and there’s still much spiritual attack. God has worked in this daughter’s heart in numerous ways since that morning, and we’re grateful, but happy pictures and memories are never the full picture. We must always pray for all the Lord’s people!
