Kisses for everyone!

Yes, we have a new home! I can't even begin to tell you how perfect it is for us; how every little detail that I prayed for, knowing full well that He might have something else in mind for our family, is present in our beautiful home.

Our closing date is in March, so that the owner may complete some paperwork with the city, and that works out perfectly for us- our lease is up in March!

Until then, this apartment is still our home; we have small group in our *small* living room on Sunday evenings, company coming in February, and lots of learning still to do here! How much sweeter it is knowing what we look towards, Lord willing.

Thank you for all of your kind words and congratulations- and for your prayers these months past. We felt them!


My soul yearns, even faints,
for the courts of the LORD;
my heart and my flesh cry out
for the living God.

Even the sparrow has found a home,
and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may have her young—
a place near your altar,
O LORD Almighty, my King and my God.

Blessed are those who dwell in your house;
they are ever praising you.
Selah (Psalm 84:2-4)

A million congratulations!!! A big hug and kiss coming to you, leaping inside for you! There is something about a woman and her home, I know your heart my friend. I can just picture your decorations, loving placed on that mantel, cozy chair beside, books all over the floor. "In the land that is plentiful, blessed be Your Name!"
Love, Sarah
The carpet, white baseboard, and paint look beautiful!

You know that Donut Man song of praise? "Jumping up and Down, jumping up and down, jumping up and down, shout HOSANNA!"

That is me! I am grinning and tickled giddy with happiness for the Hoopers... shouting hosanna to Jesus! Jesus is ALIVE! He's heard, answered, provided. With this home, the one to come... and our forever Home up ahead.

Giving thanks with you all...

Christine said...

Hooray!!!!! How you must be praising, and anticipating, and doing a little happy dance in your *small* place as you wait for your permanent place!

Meredith said...


Can't wait to see photos.
