It's Alright

In every dream there are obstacles to face. Though sometimes in life, plans seem to fall in to place without a glitch, it is uncommon.

What I’m trying to say is that we have endured our first set back/disapointment. We did not succeed in our first introduction to the cut throat application system that is the New York real estate market…we did not secure the beautiful, perfectly located apartment pictured two posts back. It went to someone else.

These are waters which, in our naivity, we did not expect to tread. We thought we had it, that this apartment would come as easy as all the other pieces of this moving puzzle so far. We’d be moving in 3 weeks and to a dreamy new residence.

Well, we’re still moving in 3 weeks but the question now is where? Somehow, we must find another apartment. Our consolation, our hope in all this, is that we’ve given our plans to God and He knows what He’s doing. He cares about every facet of this move down to where we live and obviously, what seemed like the perfect apartment in the scope of our limited human understanding, was not. Plain and simple.

So, the hunt must go on…

    Can’t wait to see pictures of the new place…when you find it. God DOES know. If He is not sovereign in the domain even of housing, than He is really not God. Right?

    Hi Susanna,How sad to hear that it did not work out for this flat.But I am sure you sill find one that will suit you. I have been through this same situation a couple of times too. You see a place, it looks like it’s THE place for you and then you do not get it. It is such a disappointment because you put all your hopes on it. You imagine what it would be like when you live there, how you would decorate it and all. And then… someone else gets it. The funny thing is a few months later you generally completely forget about that place because you will have found what suits me and what feels like home. It all seems like a disaster and failure at first but believe me, you will get over this and all will fall into place soon. You are making the necessary efforts to find a place. So there is not reason for it not to work out.Wish you the best of luck!Take care,Maud
