A Change in Thought

If any of you read my Thanks, Texas! post, you will know that for a while we were hoping to take out a loan and head to Miami for the National Championship game - Texas vs Alabama. However, thanks to Oklahoma, Texas Tech and Florida those dreams are dashed!! Therefore, we decided to instead take out a loan for a house instead. So, today we closed on a new house - new to us - and we are so excited!!!! For those of you who do not know, due to various circumstances (the housing market in Henderson being a main one!) we have been living with my parents for almost 5 years now. It has been good for all of us - you make the most of your situations. However, we are now the very proud owners of a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 2 living room, kitchen, dining area, office (SCRAPBOOK/CRAFT room!!), and a HUGE fenced in backyard!! (Katie, this is your old house) We are right down the corner from my parents and from my Grandfather Whittle. So, now we are in the process of painting and tearing up carpet. I am sure I will be posting before and after pictures coming soon!!
We have been waiting and praying for this for a long time and we pray that we will use this house to further God's kingdom and for His glory.

Thank God for the scrapbooking room! LOL! :)

I'm a scrapbooker, myself! :) But it's more in a techie kinda way! :) Like, I make online scrapbooks and all. :) I would LOVE to have my very own scrapbooking room, though! I can just imagine it right now...I would paint it red and yellow...and there would be pretty drawings hanging on the wall...sigh...

I am so very happy for you and your family. That house holds many fond memories for me. Larry and I moved in about a year before Amy was born and we moved out right after she started 7th grade. Have fun making delightful memories!

Congratulations on the new house. I know you know this, but it might be nice to be reminded: the Lord knew about your husband's job when He led you to purchace this home. He is in control - and is going to show Himself in a mighty way through your family!

Love to you, Becky.

Congrats on your new home. I'm so jealous you have a scrapbooking room.

I scrapbook too! I sometimes even post the things I scrapbook. I'll have to look around and see if you do that too!

Hi. I'm visiting from SITS. Congratulations!! My hubby and I just bought a house as well after living with my in-laws for 2 years. God bless you for making it 5 years. I'm not sure that I could have made it that long. :)
