The obvious.

Right now I wish that God would just give Leif and I a sign. A very clear one to be exact.

We recently decided that we are ready to move from our current apartment to something closer to Leif's work. We knew we wanted to do this when we first moved here to Monrovia. Leif's work is in Pasadena, about a 20 minute drive from where we live currently. And since its LA there's usually traffic in the mornings and the evenings, so really its more than 20 minutes.

We've found a few places by his work, but so far they've either been taken, too small, too expensive, or just crappy. Yet, there is one that is perfect. Its a little out of our price range but that's okay. Right? Well we want it to be alright, but we're not sure. We made a pro's and con's list and while the pro's outweighed the con's that wasn't enough to base a decision off of. I thought it would be though... Then we went over our budget, still that wasn't enough to make the decision. We prayed of course. But we still have no idea what to do! I thought it would be obvious what we were to do but its not! Do we move to this house? Or do we wait for another one? This is where I would like a sign to appear, or some guidance. Patience is not one of my virtues, I really want an answer now. When it comes down to it though, I simply want to do what God wants us to do, and I want to do what will be best for our family.

So if I could just figure out what that would be...

Things are so much tougher to decide now that we have kids, aren't they? It sounds like it could be the perfect place. Just be sure that there are things that you are willing and able to sacrifice and cut from the budget to afford it. I hope you get your sign soon!!

You can always jump on the cloth diapering band wagon with me to save a few bucks!

I will be praying, today, that the Holy Spirit make your heart and mind sensitive to the voice/leading of the Lord.

Sometimes the sign is to just wait. I wish I had learned that early on in life. I'm learning it so much now.

Just wait. God will make it so very apparent what you are supposed to do. But then again, you already know that :)

Hang in there, and I'm praying for you and Leif.

I will definitely be praying for you three! This will be an exciting step for your family! I also sometimes find myself asking God for a big sign or to make something really obvious. Sometimes though God has us wait for a time period before giving any clear direction. And sometimes a lack of any definitive answer is your answer. I pray that when He does direct you all to move, that all the doors will open and things will fall into place. I love you guys!
