A Levesque #61 - Last Rope

 I can't even begin to describe the feelings that I have built up inside of me lately.  This is going to be personal mainly because God gifted me with the ability to not care about your opinion, and this blog isn't for people who know me per se.  It's mainly for my children so they can look and see everything will work out.   NO MATTER WHAT THERE WILL ALWAYS BE HOPE. I've been struggling. Never have I seen such selfishness. Never have I seen so much greed. Never have I seen so much betrayal.  Never have I seen families ripped apart because of ego and pride.   My house and my family will not be torn apart in the process.  We serve the Lord, and no weapon formed against us will prosper.  We are formed on a rock, not sand to blow away when trials come our way.   Somedays will be hard. Shit, somedays are hard. Somedays it will rain. Then, Somedays the sun will shine so bright you'll forget that it was ever raining.  Never give up on those you love.   Pray for them from

A Levesque #49 - Finally over it


Good morning you beautiful people. 

This post on my memories made me realize four things.

#1 Anything is possible with faith and work.

#2 You can make it through anything in the oath of the Lord.

#3 Things can change dramatically if you just believe in yourself and do the work necessary to accomplish it all.

#4 Satan didn't cripple me and you can prevent him from crippling you.

Imagine finding your dream home.  4 bedrooms, 2 baths, completely remodeled from top to bottom on 3.5 acres.  Working hard for years to build the credit to buy such a beautiful home.  Only to find that everyone you hired throughout your home purchase, the inspector, the bank, the VA appraiser, and even my own realtor did not hold any standard of ethics and we're just pushing another house through no matter what.  No matter if there was no septic.  No matter if the certificate of occupancy is dated months after closing (only issued when my loud ass showed up at the county inspection office).  No matter if they used jumper wires throughout the house to hide the tube and knob electric.  No matter that the seller signed the documents with different names in my paperwork and many other homes in the area as well.  No matter that their realtor had a reputation of ripping people off, which since we were outsiders we did not know.  All problems were purposely hid in order to close this house.  Addendums were unsigned and here we were in a big giant shit hole, literally.

When the discoveries were finally made, we were devastated.

Lost our minds.

Didn't feel safe in that beautiful home we found. 

Making the children sleep in the living room, because God forbid the house catch on fire. Barely using the water because the sewage was just going in the ground on one side, while the short water well pulls from the other side.  Making sure you don't touch the stove and the hood fan at the same time as not to be electrocuted.


With integrity, one issue at a time, we fixed it all.  The septic, the electric, installed a water filtration that nothing could get through.  

So that the next person to buy this house would never feel the frustration, disappointment, and absolute anger I felt since we were honest open and forthcoming with every issue and showed permits and receipts for all we did. 

God never left my side.

God started putting people like my buddy, Pat in play in order to get my problems fixed.  

God provided us with money we weren't expecting several times to finish the house the way it needed to be done. 

God sent me many people, my Aunt Jo to help me navigate through my paperwork.  God sent me all kinds of help.

I would like to say he didn't give me what I wanted.  I wanted the people to pay for what they had done, and I believe he has or will when it is time. 

Sometimes we end up in the worst of places only to humble ourselves to our knees to him so that he can help.

The post I shared in the photos, was the last thing that we had to get done.

I just could not believe it has only been three years 

When we were done and put it on the market.  God sent Jack.  Great realtor and honest.  Him and his team did an excellent job.

When we went to find a new house back at home, God sent Angie.  Another hard working honest realtor.  When the bank started to give me problems, because of course they know be by name.  God sent me Brad, best VA home closer I have ever met.  

Throughout our time in that hell, God sent me my Aunt to weather the storm with.  God sent teachers to help me look after the children as we were dying in grief and anger.  God sent me friends like Jack and Jess and so many others who were there to comfort me.  

My point today, don't lose hope. 

No matter how grimm things are looking.

Lean on the Almighty Lord and he will fix all the problems that you have.


Anything is possible if you believe.

3 years later, we live in a new wonderful home that is safe and in my neck of the woods instead of hours away from anyone I know.  With God's honest workers, we are in such a better place.  Without this situation I would not have found God.  I wouldn't be as strong as I am now.  

Keep fighting your battles.

Never give up on yourself.

You are worth every bit. 

Remember don't be an asshole, a liar, a corner cutter, a go with the flow kind of person there are people involved which is more important than money.

Love your faces.
