can I get a sunset view?

I will never take sunsets for granted.  

When we lived in our house in Haslet I loved every evening.  I saw the sunset every single day for almost 7 years.  I remember the last year we lived there I hated summer.  It was so hot you couldn't open the patio door without an oven mit.  You think I'm kidding, but I'm not.  It was one of the hottest summers on record and I was dreming of trees and shade.

Driving out of HEB parking lot tonight made me think of our current status.

House shopping.

We have months before we will actually move, but we look and explore homes all the time.
The kids wake up excited every single Saturday asking when we are going to head out to house shop.  They are just as excited as we are about finding our new home.

I have such mixed feelings about our home to be.  I want to see the sunset every single night because I am obsessed with sunsets.  BUT I want trees.  Will the trees block my view of God's beauty?  In Haslet we had no trees.  In Ohio we lived down in a valley and so the mountains blocked the sunset.  In Georgia we were surrounded by so many trees we couldn't see the sunset.  In our 4 years of adventures in other states I realized I miss the sunsets!  I missed them so much.  I'm thankful to be back in Texas enjoying the sun.  

God has led our litte family on a wonderful journey and I know he has the perfect home in store for us.  I can't wait to trust and see where he plants us in our town!
