The sale of our house went through yesterday and now instead of house keys we have a cheque that needs to last us for the next two and half years or so. The reality of that is beginning to hit and I don't really know how I feel. After living in our own home for almost 10 years, it's kind of strange to be "borrowing" this house for our duration here at Seminary. Although I feel very thankful and excited that God provided the sale of our house in such a terrible market, a part of me feels a little bit sad to see it go. In a society where such an emphasis is placed on possessions it seems somewhat wrong to let go of such a big one. I know that we have to do this in order to fully follow where God is leading us, but I am realizing that sometimes being stretched and challenged doesn't feel all that great!
