unless the LORD builds

My Love spoke to our landlord on Saturday.  We had been praying about how God would direct that conversation.  God blessed his words and Mr. W. responded positively to our notice to move out in a couple months.  So the packing begins.  If all goes well, the house will be ready by mid October and we can move ourselves slowly.  My Love will take packed boxes down with him to work each day and then once most things are relocated we will rent a moving truck to haul the big stuff.

Officially we will be out of this house and into the next chapter by 31 October.  It will be here before we know it.  Until then, I am pondering this Word given to me by the Lord last night. 

"Unless the LORD builds a house, the work of the builders is useless.  Unless the LORD protects a city, guarding it with sentries will do no good.  It is useless for you to work so hard from early morning until late at night, anxiously working for food to eat; for God gives rest to his loved ones." -Psalm 127:1-2
