And Then She Mourned...

Not a person, but a place. The house we thought we'd call home was given to another family by a sleazy businessman. As promised, the man was the owner of Catonsville Contracting in Catonsville, MD. It's not that the man does shoddy work, at least not at first glance, but his ethics leave little to be desired. At the end of it all, there were no mistakes, just lying, manipulation, and down right deceitfulness.

Though I am sad, because I loved the house, I have to believe that God has something else for us...something that is a better fit for us as a family. Please join us in prayer for we are under 30 days from settlement on our house here in Laurel, and the pickings are slim for houses in the area we want to live. Pray that God would lead us to right house for our family and in a timely manner so that we don't have to move into temporary housing.

I'd write more, but Katy and Wes will be here soon, dinner is in the oven, and the kids are breaking down. Thank you for your support and prayer. I can honestly say I need it.
