We found a HOUSE!!

We finally found a house and we made an offer! After many counter offers and long waiting periods(haha not really but it sure feels like it!), we came to an accepted offer!!! YAY!!! It is a cute little house in the country with some great potential to grow, but is in great move in condition and will meet our needs!! I can't wait! As long as everything goes according to plan ( house inspection, financing, etc) we will close November 20th, just in time for Christmas and Emma!! haha...and thanks for all of your prayers for us during this process! We have definitely needed it and really appreciate it!! You all are wonderful!!

Just A Little Bump In The Road.........

Well as I had previously posted, we have been looking for a new house, and we had found one! We finally went through with all of the financial end of it and put an offer on it! Unfortunately someone out bid us and we lost it!!! :( I honestly have to say that I have been pretty depressed about it, but I know there has to be something out there for us. I also know God closes doors and opens them. So I am taking this as a closed door ( like I have a choice...hahahaha) and in search of an open one!! So my husband and I are going shopping ONCE AGAIN for a house on Sunday! Pray for us!! hahaha.....

Big Changes

Well my husband and I have been looking for a house! We are tired of renting and needless to say our current home is not really that functional for 2 kids soon to be 3. So we have been looking and looking and praying and praying! And we found one that is so charming and inviting!! It feels like our home already! hahaha....I am very excited and can't wait to get packing!

I just want to give God all the glory for all of the blessings He has showered our family with! His Word is true and absolute! Its kinda funny how we think we know God's Word but then you really have a revelation of how simple it really is! haha I mean He tells us in Luke 11:9 "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find." and we(well at least me haha) seem to think why would God do that for ME??

Prayer and a more intimate life with Christ seems to be the theme around our church right now, and I think God is just teaching each and everyone of us that we can't just assume God knows what we are feeling and want but we have to TELL HIM! (although we all know He already knows! haha) I am just enjoying the intimate season I am in with my Father! I hope you all have a personal REAL relationship with your Creator! He is worthy of it!

Hope all of your days are full of love and life! Blessings and Love!!
