It's Saturday morning and I need to go clean the kitchen in Leimen. It sort of makes me sad/ mad/ discouraged that the house is not rented or sold. We continue to invest money into renovation and we continue to pay the mortgage on an empty house. I've looked around and I'm pretty sure it's the best house near Heidelberg for the price. We get calls from people who can not afford the place. This week I had to turn down a family with 8 kids, and an American family who would only be here one year and could not afford the rent. I feel sorry for these families but I can not go down on the price. We owe the bank money. Sometimes I do not know where I can find the courage to deal with this situation. I shut my eyes when the money leaks out of my bank account. There goes our savings. God please help us. I just want to go forward. But we do not walk by sight, or emotions. And God is good all the time, even when the housing market is slow! I love my garden, and I'm grateful for the space. I just want this situation to be resolved well. Today I'll clean the kitchen and pray blessings over the family that rents the house. It would be nice to wake up on Saturday and just enjoy the day with my husband and family. As always, I thank you for remembering us in your prayers.
