About the move

I mentioned in my last post that we might be moving.  On a whim, we have decided to list our home.  This came from no where.  The market is good right now, esp. in our price range.  We want to move to a small condo where that we can just enjoy and not work constantly to maintain.  So we are in full speed ahead.  A lot needs to be done before we list.  We aren't going to make the same mistake that we made a few years back when we listed our house.  We waited til July in a market that tanked.  So here we go.  Oh my, I am already exhausted.  This decision was made about one week ago.  We hope to be on the market by the 15th.  We have looked at one condo already and will be looking at the other two that are available tonight.  We have painters coming tomorrow to pain the bedroom and all of our upstairs ceilings.  We will get the big things out of the way and work on the little things after it's listed.  So there's the story.   
 
 
 
I was going to tease you about this being the house we were moving to.....yeah, right.  Actually our grandson was invited to a school party here.  I was appointed to pick him up.  As beautiful as this house is.......it's not for me. 
We are going to need some prayers.  I like to save prayers for serious things but this is important  esp. important for health reasons.  So I thought I would show you our new church.  We are officially joining this church on Sunday.  It's called "The Church in the Mall."   And it's in the mall.  It is such a beautiful space.  They wanted to be where they could reach the most people.  It has a small congregation that is there to serve and to provide hope to all walks of life.  I took these pictures quickly as they were turning off the lights.  The walls are a orangy color.  Notice the trees on the walls.  Love the table that serves as an alter.  The little chair in the middle is where the pastor sits.  The rest of us sit at small tables and chairs.  It's like a cafĂ© with coffee, water and juice available.  So comfy.
So theat is what's going on.  I will be so busy for the next few days.  If I don't comment please still be my friend.  I will read posts when I am too exhausted to stand.
Wish us luck.....and say a little prayer for us.

Debby, Praying for you...to be at peace while moving and selling. Your church is fine..does God care what a church looks like, or just that someone there needs Him and wants Him. Blessings dear Debby...you can't lose true friends. xoxo,Susie

I think you've made a wonderful decision...well, a more than one! We like living in a smaller space with our lawn taken care of. Makes things so much easier when you get older. And the church looks nice. Lots of good changes for this year and I will definitely keep you in my prayers. Wishing you the very best my friend! Sweet hugs, Diane

Wishing you the very best in your upcoming changes. I'm sure it will all work out. Prayer is good and I'll make sure and say some for you and your hubby.

Sweet hugs friend

I hope that everything goes according to your plans on that move and buying a condo.

Don't worry about the church. Jesus teached outdoors on the mountain and by the water. The church is just fine. I think churches are overrated.
Hugs,

Good Luck with your move. Such an undertaking. I guess your staying in the same town?

Sounds like a good plan. You know that's what I just did, but I'm renting whereas I'm sure you'll be buying. Nevertheless, less maintenance as we age is a good thing!

I'm right there with you, Debby. We decided very quickly at Easter to put our house on the market. I worked very hard clearing out the clutter to "stage" our house. It has now been on the market for 4 weeks, I think. Still no offers, but two clients are close. Good luck and don't wear yourself out getting your place ready!

Gina said...

Oh my goodness Debby, you certainly have your hands full! Good luck with everything and hopefully you'll have a speedy sale.

What a wonderful church! Sure wish I could find one like it around here. I'll be praying that all goes well with your move!

A move to a condo sounds like a year round vacation..
I will be praying for you
everything will fall into place.
God is good.

First off- I am glad you found a church home...I know that is important to you.

Wish I lived closer- I would come and help you and stage your house for sale. You will be so happy to sell and move to a condo. I know that you will not miss all the work there.

I will keep you in my prayers, Debby. I will be your friend whether you visit or not-lol...just keep us posted when you can! xo Diaa

God bless you my friend, in selling your home, in finding a new condo and in your new Faith home too. Many changes, please take care of yourself. I know wherever you go, you'll find happiness. Love, Penny

Exciting news Debby to be moving. Big step and lots of work to keep you busy this summer. I think about the day when I won't be able to take care of my little house and will have to move. Hope that day is far away, but I try to think realistically about it especially since I broke my foot. Take care and don't work too hard. Good luck with the condo hunt. Hope you find something that will be perfect for you and meet all your needs.
