So we have been told that we can no longer stay in the house we've been renting for 2 years. This really stinks for us, the kids are adjusted (finally), we have made friends and we have come to love this area... We have been searching since we found out we had to move for a place near by... The kids are pretty sad they have to leave the ward and move further away. We finally found (or hoped we'd found) a condo in Lehi about 3 miles from where we currently live. However, they haven't been getting back to us about when we can move in, how much the deposit is or really even if we passed the application stage and can proceed forward. There are no houses that we've found that we can move into. We have a cat and all have either gone with a different family, or doesn't want an animal, especially a cat. We have put all of our hopes into this particular condo at this point, our only ray of light. As the move out date is approaching we are really getting worried about where we're gonna go and all that jazz. Well. Today in my depressed state... yes I've been a little... ok a lot depressed. I have been doing the Biggest Loser challenge with some friends and have lost 20 pounds so far... well this last week.. i've been so depressed... I've gained back 2 pounds!! AHG... anyways I digress... So today being depressed and praying for direction on how to get out of the depression and what we should do about a place to live... I had an impression to look back on KSL.com for other houses/condo's that may have been added to their list since I looked last, which was about a week ago. So, I looked on KSL.com. I saw a condo right behind our current house, comes with a pool, garage and other neat stuff... for the same rent as the previous condo. The owners are REALLY SUPER Nice! They like us, and are most likely moving to California. I filled out an application and sent it to them. They said if they can find housing in California, then we will be able to get the condo! :) We should know by Tuesday next week or before depending on what they find in California. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I feel like this is where the Lord wants us, that we have been lead to this condo. I pray that this is right, it feels right and I just hope and have faith that all will be well. :) I am so grateful for the power of prayer and answers received to those heartfelt, ernest prayers. I know without a shadow of a doubt that the Lord has a plan for us, that we are lead if we listen and follow his promptings that we will have what our hearts desire. We truly are blessed and our cup runneth over. We are hopeful once again, but not without trial. Blessings definitely do come out of tribulation, prayer and faith!
