A Home Of Our Very Own

YAY! I can hardly believe we have a home of our own. We closed this past Monday on our beautiful place. God knew exactly what we needed and the features we wanted.  He also knew that there would be quite the mess in between. He overcame every obstacle in the way and we are now packing and waiting to move into our new home in the next month or so.

We will be out of the city. This was a HUGE issue as we were renting in a revitalized neighborhood but the crime has been horrifying.  Not somewhere we want to raise our child.

The home has a nice backyard with a fence, a finished basement, nice sized kitchen with fairly new appliances, 4 bedrooms and in a nice neighborhood.

It's 15 minutes away from church, same amount from Jackson's grave and is 25 minutes from my husbands work.

We are looking forward to this new season in our lives. I can just image raising our daughter in this home and enjoying every little milestone.  Who knows, maybe adding to our family again one day if it's Gods will. We'd like that very much!

In the meantime I'd love for you to see it.

Home Sweet Home!

We are waiting patiently to move in.  I can't tell you how many dreams have come true and all because God granted them to us. I have a husband who loves me, two silly dogs, a son in heaven, a beautiful daughter here on earth, parents who love us, friends who have been so good to us and even several friends here online who have been with me for years.  It amazes me how good God is that He knows our hearts desires and while not all of them come to fruition, a great many dreams come true because of his loving-kindness.

My hope is that He will continue to do a good work in me, prune this sinful heart of mine and replace it with the "fruit of the spirit".  I am undeserving of it all yet God loves me SO Much that through it all, He gave his one and only begotten son so that because I believe I will not parish but have eternal life. I pray others know this gift and accept it and that they're lives would be fruitful, blessed and pleasing to the Lord.

I can't wait to share our new journey with you!
