this morning, my husband decided that if we didn't get this house, that he wasn't going to look anymore--it was too emotionally exhausting to see homes we liked and not be able to get our offers accepted. Not 15 minutes went by that our friend, Karen, the realtor helping us find a house, called to say that we had gotten the house. I was stunned. I was shocked! I thought it was a joke! I even asked her that. She said, No, it wasn't a joke--that the house was ours. My daughter was jumping up and down and hootin' and a hollerin', she was so excited. My husband just sat at the table, not doing or saying anything. I think he thought it was all a joke.
I kept telling myself to have faith. Faith moves mountains. I had to trust in God that this place would be ours if he willed it so. I am telling you----Faith is a wonderful thing. GOD is listening! I thank God for giving us this house and starting us on a new journey.
Now, I need to start packing. We're not sure of the closing date, but it should be within a couple of weeks.
Here are some photos of the house:
I thank all of you who prayed for me and my family. I really appreciate it.
