We have a notary appointment on October 30th to sell the house in Leimen! I’m so happy it will be legally sold. We will still need to pay the mortgage until the banks figure it all out. But it will all be settled soon! What a gift! I’m so grateful for a good buyer. It took 3 years but this chapter can finally be closed. And maybe Juergen can go to Cyprus for a week? That would be the first week of November. Roy Godwin will be the speaker for Nicole’s last week of her internship. He wrote the book “The Grace Outpouring”. We were hoping Juergen could rent a room on the beach, soak up some good sun and hear Roy Godwin teach. Then fly home with Nicole. That would only be possible if we didn’t have to worry about the notary appointment. But now that week is free…so maybe it could work out. I hope so.

chicken coop idea

Why not start with an IBC and cut a hole for the door? You could build closed laying boxes into it, and something for the chickens to roost on. Put some straw or saw dust on the floor. You could add vents to the side for air. If it sat inside a chicken run that you can walk into, the chickens could be safe, dry and happy. I have an extra IBC. Maybe this could be my chicken house? I bet I could even plant the outside of it with mud and grass for extra insulation and good looks.

I love the idea

I think I've loved old stuff my whole life. I love 2nd hand stores so much more then new stores. And a container house is really just taking what is old and using it in a new way. It's cheaper to build with and good for the earth.

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.

Juergen worked all day at the old house. This is after working every night there after work. My poor sweetheart is so tired! And he showed the house to 3 different families. It was too big for all of them. 2 families had no children, and one had a baby. It has 5 bedrooms, why do they look at all? And Sarah had a 2 hour cry over cleaning her bedroom. I think the cry had more to do with Juergen being gone all the time. We are feeling a little beaten up. I'm sure it will be OK, but it's hard not to feel discouraged. Part of this is just being too tired. "Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life. " Proverbs 13:12 We are feeling the pain of a sick heart, but still hoping for the tree of life. I hope it all get’s resolved soon. And for tonight, that we can rest. Everything looks dark when you are too tired!
