So do you guys remember that stuff that your mom had in a bowl that smelled like a perfume counter? Yep, that was potpourri. This title has nothing to do with that smelly stuff. It's just gonna be a bunch of stuff that isn't related at all...a little update of the "this and that's" of my life in a bowl.

Today was supposed to be my appointment at this clinic. Due to a family emergency, the doctor had to cancel. They couldn't reschedule until the middle of February, and that won't work for my schedule. God has definitely closed the door to that clinic and I'm not sure what He has around the corner. I believe that since I'm going to be moving, He has some plans for me that will be closer to Creston.

My next bit of potpourri is about Creston. I'm headed back there on Thursday with my parents to do some house hunting. This is both exciting and scary at the same time. I'm excited because I'll possibly be buying my first house. I'm scared because I'll possibly be buying my first house. I'm sure every one of you is familiar with these feelings. I'm very thankful my parents can go with me.

Thanks so much for your prayers and kind words. I know that God has great things in store for the future. Just as He put the perfect job along my path, I know He'll guide me to the perfect house in the right time. I'm so thankful for such a mighty and caring God.

Erin, be sure to ask a lot of questions about the neighborhoods. I think sometimes it's a good idea to rent for awhile so you can get the lay of the land. Of course your new co-workers may be able to offer a lot of advice. Our newer pharmacist here decided to buy a house right away w/o asking any of us & he ended up being the only young single guy in a neighborhood full of families & retirees. Suffice it to say, he doesn't like it much at all. Just a thought. I know sometimes renting seems like a waste of money, but it can be a great transition step. I'll be praying that the Lord very clearly leads - house hunting can be a very emotional process (fear, anxiety, excitement, anticipation, etc.) so I'll pray that you can lay all that aside & make a wise decision.
I'm so excited for you!

Woo Hoo! You're very own house. With your flair for decorating, I'm sure you'll have a ball. I look forward to seeing how everything turns out.
