House Hunting

Ok, so seriously I think I would rather be out hunting buffalo or something. I would have put deer, but I actually do want to be out hunting deer. We have started our journey of looking at houses and have now seen 6, had my heart broke on one and are now looking at a new possibility. We are seeking God's direction on this journey so much and boy do we need it! We thought originally it would be Huntington which isn't too far away so we can still see friends and depending on which side of town, still go to our church. Now we aren't ruling out the surrounding area to where we are now. This is where some of my confusion of which direction to go, comes in. I want to be able to provide the ability for my husband not to have to drive so far to work everyday while on the other hand not take my kids from their school or our family from our church. What a HUGE decision! Rodney has decided that staying in our church is more valuable to him than being closer to work. The last house we looked at is in LaFontaine and had a family with four kids in it. It's a nice lot, nice yard, good size and just needs some love and personal touches. It has great potential for so many ideas that we have (mainly me) in store for the future (bring on the covered porch baby!).
Needless to say but I'm gonna, we still need so many prayers. Buying a home seems sooo big, but God is bigger and I continue to tell myself that every day and every house.
Heavenly Father, I come to you and ask that you direct my family and I to that perfect house You have picked just for us! I pray it is a size that our family fits in comfortably. I pray it has 3 to 4 bedrooms, 2 to 2.5 bathrooms, a nice size yard with room for fruit trees, kids, a dog and a garden. I pray it is in a country setting even if it is in a neighborhood. I pray that if our kids have to change school that you would give them the strength and courage to do so. I pray you will have wonderful new friends waiting on them, to embrace them and love them as much as the friends they have now. Ultimately I pray we are able to stay in our area of school and church. Lord none of this is bigger than You and we acknowledge that Your plan is what we want over ours no matter what that may involve. We just pray that You would make it ever so clear to us that we are on the right path. Open doors You would have us go through and close the ones You don't want us to even stick a foot in. You are Almighty! I pray for peace, comfort and patients through out the whole process. I thank you in advance for the house You have waiting just for us and for the journey we have been put on for the process. I praise You and love You! In Jesus' Name I pray, Amen!
