A Little About Humble Abode
We stepped out into the unknown by the leading of the Lord and my moved couple hours away to the southern tip of our state. My husband became a Pastor and our life has changed drastically. Through it all we have been blessed. We now live in a very small town that is very rural. Things go really slow and laid back here. We lived in the city area of St. Louis where the pace was anything but slow.
Our home was a blessing because we looked for months for a house to call our home. We were actually preparing to move into the church (they have a small VERY small hotel room apartment) and that was not the ideal thing with 3 kids, two dogs, and two adults. The weekend before our house closed and we were preparing to move inside the church this home opened up to us by some farmers. It is a nice quaint home that was clean and affordable on 6 acres.
Abode--is a small dwelling. Our home is not the smallest but it is small and we are very thankful for it.
A home is more than just what you live in...it is how you live in it. It is the memories you make and the joy and trials shared. It a refuge and a place to rest.
