We haven't officially obtained a place to rent. We've called everyone listed and only one place will allow us to rent for only three months. Most rental places hung up after they heard "fifty pound boxer." It's sad that so many people have abused the rental system so that property owners naturally distrust them. As Nana says, "renters are C-grade people." But we're not. We're clean, quiet, and we usually go to bed at a decent hour. So it's too bad that we can't convince these people that they would be much happier with us for three months than the people they will probably get for six. Oh well. At least there was one place willing to take us! I feel a little like Joseph and Mary. But, as I just remembered, God provided in their case as He will in ours.
