We do not know the reasons, but we trust in a great and mighty God. We don't see the future but He does. We don't see dangers ahead, but He is able to take us through those times and keep us safe.
Our loan was not approved. Because of the uneasiness of these financial times, it may be totally for the best. We were hoping to get a lower interest rate, but what we have now it not outrageous and will be reviewed in another year anyway. We have some decisions to make now, but I think it includes a little more elbow grease and a little more grit than we had anticipated. I'm OK with that. I haven't been sleeping well the past couple weeks anyway and it probably has something to do with this whole loan process. Of course the same thing happened to me when I took my first car loan. It's scary being in financial debt to someone else. I know there are some who do not think we should take loans out at all. We didn't have many choices when faced with moving in a fairly short period of time and having to find room for all of Mom and Dad's stuff.
It's just another adventure for us. Doug and I are just trusting that the Lord knows what He's doing to and for us. We are His children.
Keep praying please. We really need to get stuff out of storage and it would be nice to have a home with 2-way traffic. :)
