Sell it all?

I’m seriously considering selling everything we own.

You see, we’ve found our land. At least I think it is. If it isn’t, it’s an awfully good imitation. It’s 31 acres with a dilapidated house and several outbuildings, and the price certainly seems to be right. But is the time?

The funny thing is, I’m ready to do it. Sell everything, that is. All signs point to minimalism. I keep finding fantastic posts and pins about it. Mis-shelved books practically jump off the shelves at me. Bible verses about possessions and attachments leap off the page when I’m doing studies that have nothing to do with those topics. A dear friend is an expert at it and another dear friend hired me to help her with it. I think it’s time. The big question is…

How?

There are lots of other questions, of course, and I’m trying very hard not to focus on them, but still things like, “Kara, you’re raising money for a mission trip; is this okay to do with that going on?” “Should I just get a job? What will that do to the kids?” “Is this really the one? If it’s not, how long do I have to wait and how many more disappointments will I have to face?”

So, I pray. If you feel so inclined to do the same, I would appreciate it. Eventually this blog will be all about our homestead. I’m so excited to get there. I promise to take you along for the ride.
