sorry i took a longer break from the older child series than i expected. i will be back hopefully tomorrow with a new post in that series. but the reason for my break is because WE MOVED!!!! by a God sized miracle we were able to purchase a house without our tax refund. God didn't move the mountain, he just cut a big ole path right through the middle. that is how awesome the God is that we serve. i am still in awe of what God is doing for us. it all happened extremely fast and i have been neck deep in either packing or unpacking for the past month. we just moved in last weekend.
our house is more than we could have ever asked for. it is over 3400 sq ft, 5 bedrooms, 4 1/2 baths, plus a large area for the kids to play. we are currently turning one of the bedrooms into a playroom for the boys. the master suite is the biggest suite i've ever seen. our closet is bigger than our boys bedroom in our last house. i have my first separate bathtub EVER! that alone is going change everything. God has not only blessed us with space for the 6 of us but for our family to grow. He is so good! we are in an incredible community that has already embraced us. neighbors have been introducing themselves every time we step outside. and another God miracle, all of our neighbors have boys the same age as our boys. only God! our kids go outside and play in the cul-de-sac most of the day. oh, and we live across the street from the community pool. guess we will be spending most of our time?
as you can see there is more than enough space in our house for visitors. we are just waiting to entertain you and enjoy your company. please come stay with us when you come through town. we have prayed for God to use us and our house to be a blessing to others and to bring glory to His name. some people have asked if this is our dream house. well we weren't even looking for a dream house. we were looking for a house big enough for us in a community were we can serve. we wanted to be good stewards with our finances while still providing a safe place where our boys could grow. we know we will be here for at least the next 10 years. thank you for your many prayers for us throughout this entire house process. God heard and answered with awesomeness. we are forever grateful. praise and glory to God!
