This past week has been a little stressful. The local volunteer fire department asked to buy our land, and the representative made it sound like if we didn’t take tax value they are going to force us to move through emanate domain laws for even less. My husband spoke to an attorney about it and we found out we can at least fight for a fair price, but what is fair when you are losing your home?! We looked around at all we had done to make this land and house into a place where we could relax and live a good, fulfilling life. A place where we could raise our children in peace. And then it is all threatened, supposedly in the “best interest of the community”. Are we not part of that community?
Now, we are not opposed to moving. We would like to get another place of comparable value and resources without having to incur debt just because someone wants the home we are content in, though. We still don’t know whats going to happen, but we feel in limbo here. I have so many things I want to do, but anything I do may be for naught and I hate to expend the time and energy into doing major undertakings if I’m going to lose it all in a few months. It’s not a comfortable place to be in. Plus our children feel like they don’t know whats happening, and it is very difficult for them. They asked me last week if they will have a house to go to if we have to leave this one, and where it would be. It’s not pleasant to have to explain these things to your children.
Right now we are resting in our faith that God will provide. We don’t know His plans for us, to stay or go, but we do know that it will work out despite being uncomfortable right now. I am not doing much posting because of all the things going on, but I hope to do more soon, maybe of the growing garden and expanding beds 🙂 I hope you are all having a good entry into spring, and will talk with ya later!
