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.
