House Sitting This Week 8/13th-19th

We did it!! We moved out of our rental. I must say that there was plenty of drama to get our deposit back and it was many days of hard work plus going back and forth, but in the end it all got done and we got our deposit back which was no small sum.

I enjoyed the rental, but honestly, I am happy to be out of that place. It wasn't mine. I added my own touch where I could, but it didn't feel like a place I could really enjoy. We were blessed with the lake nearby and the beautiful town of Piestany, but it was a lonely place to Augustin and I. We had no friends there. It also required by husband to have long hours of committing to Bratislava, which left us with very little family time. 

We have permanently moved out, but our new flat is not finished nor has our mortgage gone through like the bank said it would by now. We are in a rough place in the fact that we, yet again, remain without a home. We have been here when we sold our house before we set off on our year long airstream trip across America. We have been here before and after moving to Slovakia and here we are again. 

We have a place to stay this week as we are house sitting for pastor's while they are away for a week. They have two dogs, fish and plants that need to be taken care of. After this week we have no clue what's next. Our new flat is a dead end at this moment. I am ever so grateful for a place to stay this week. It's been a place where we go for 2 mile walks with the dog, plus a few more with our own dog. It's been a place where the city center is a tram ride away and our new flat close enough to get things done like installing the kitchen and adding wallpaper. 

The truth is, I am not very good at this adventurous 'in-between' seasons. I'm not sure how others are, but its been rough. My friend just moved from Washington to California and she almost spent a whole month in a hotel as they waited for their new home. I'm sure that was tough! I'm now "feeling" in the same spot. Through all of this, through all my emotions and feelings about our move I know that I can rest in a God who loves me and wants to best for me. I am trusting that He is working out all the details that will benefit us in the end. I don't see the things He does. I am out of my comfort zone, but it doesn't say in the bible that He will keep us in our comfort zones. It actually says the opposite because we all know that's where the 'growing' happens.

A good example of God taking care of us is the week long opportunity to housesit. It's been a blessing  for sure!
