At nine o'clock tonight, I received (( THE )) call from my agent telling me that there were TWO other offers on "our" house. My heart was in my throat, but we trusted the Lord with this, and He answered!
The owners chose OUR offer! I am so ECSTATIC! Yipee!
And all of this time ( 2-3 months, I think ), God had been closing door after door.
We left no stone unturned as we searched for the right house.
THIS house is such a special place just on the edge of the city...yet still far enough in the country ( my cup of tea ) - built in 1995, an off-white brick home sitting on .36 acres with a huge in ground pool in the back yard, lovely patio, spacious deck, and beautiful wood and tile floors throughout the home.
Also has a nice private fence circling the property too. And the kitchen has granite counters with backslpash - Lol! I just bet I sound like a real estate advertisement! Lol!
We are thrilled and will celebrate tomorrow as a family!
The road we live on is called "Our Rd." . . .isn't that fun?!
I have grown to a new level of trust in my relationship with God. What an experience this has been! My children too! I have learned that with God, there really is NO limit. He wants us to ask Him for it ALL!
Thank you for your prayers! I will blog later when we move in, and I have fun "moved in" pics of our house.

I could really use some sage advice from my SP Friends right now - especially those that run. . .
Which is it - Stone Bruise, Plantar Fasciitis, or none of the above?
...::::I think that the tissue on the bottom of my left foot may be inflamed. The point of inflammation is on the bottom of my heel ( just a small portion of the heel ) and a small portion of my arch. I don't feel any pain, just some tension, strain ....like a bruise, perhaps.
In the past 5 weeks, it never hurt to run, but it usually feels tight an hour afterwards. However, I stopped running 2 weeks ago just in case I DO have a real injury. I decided to rest until I can find out just what the problem is.
I may make an appointment next week to be diagnosed by my physician. What a time for this to happen - right in the middle of our relocating to a new home.
It is also time to purchase new athletic shoes, and here poses another request for YOUR advice, dear SP Friends! Lol. BTW - although I have never been professionally fitted for running shoes, my friends tell me that I am a neutral pronator.
Am I the only one who LOVES to wear running shoes 90% of the time? After I told a friend how much I wear the same pair of running shoes constantly, she shared with me ( being a nurse) that she does too. It might be a problem ...wearing the same pair ...and would be helpful to rotate different shoes out.
I have no idea though. . . I need HELP!
Perhaps I have caused my own heel inflammation due to my wearing the same shoes constantly. If I did purchase another shoe - what would it be. I admit I DO wear flip flops around the house sometimes. hee-hee. . .
Please tell me what YOU do, what works for you, what hasn't, and please feel free to include anything you have learned from your past experiences...:::I am a sponge - ready to soak it all up.
Thank YOU past the moon & back again! . . .it's the minions scattered around this blog that helps me retain my sense of humor ...through it all. Lol!
. . .and once again, I remind you, that it IS indeed FRIDAY!

. . . : : :We are so excited to have our OFFICIAL loan approval! and SO Fast:::......too!
I just have to share our Praise Report with you....
From the beginning of the house process til now, it took JUST 8 days for the loan officer to review, process, and only 9 more days to approve us for a home loan! Now, I have to say that's a 'God thing' for sure....I know from the experiences of others that it takes a minimum of 30 days. . . .and then problems can arise.
BUT - God had His hand on us from the get-go. The loan director took a personal interest in us, and handled the application by hand. Usually papers are reviewed by other officers, and then passed to her, but SHE made us her priority.
I am so humbled and grateful. God's GRACE is always sufficient. He can out-give anyone, and WOW! . . .does He think BIG! Lol!
With only 25 days til our MOVE-OUT date, you'd think I'd be stressed to the 9's.
But, I'm not. It's a strange thing - Faith. You're not quite sure it's there until it's tested. I know He has increased my Faith here in 2014. The clock is ticking, but God's timing is different. Lol.
I am house shopping tomorrow & I have no doubt that the Lord will direct us to where He wants us. After all - He's brought us this far.....it is guaranteed that He will see us to the end. My hope is in Him who has led us this far & will lead us HOME. He does provide the wind, and my sails are UP! Lol.
Thank YOU so much for your prayers!!
Prayer is power. How blessed I am to have praying friends.
