New House


Just wanted to give everyone an update on the house hunt. A little less than three months ago, we placed an offer on a house that was in a short sale.

Today, we got the go ahead from the bank that owned the house! YEAH! Now let's pray that my current house sells soon. (It isn't contingent on our buying the new house.)

A long wait, but well worth it! The house was sold WAY under assessment. Praise God!

The new house is on 2.5 acres and has six bedrooms and 4 full baths. A three car garage, and a two story den which opens into the kitchen. GORGEOUS! The kitchen has a double oven and a walk-in pantry - a dream kitchen for this mom of six! The master bedroom is HUGE and the master bath has two separate vanities and a soaking tub separate from the large shower. It has a large closet in the Master bedroom and an even larger walk-in closet in the master bath. I am so excited. One of our favorite features is the large number of windows all throughout the back of the house. It is bright and cheery.

The neighborhood has several lakes that we can use and fish - my hubby and son are quite excited about that prospect.

Looks like we will close on Friday! Thanks to all of you who have been in prayer about this. God is in control and His timing is perfect.

Sonya,

Wow! God really blessed you with patience in the timing, but saving you loads of money as well. We will still keep you in prayers that a loving family finds your home and purchases it as well.

Congratulations again!

So very nice!! God is certainly taking very good care of you with this entire process. Your family will love the space, I'm sure.

I hope things go well at your closing and that the last chapter of this move comes to an end soon.
