After years of longing to move to a new home, God has finally answered my prayers. We are moving across town in a few short weeks.
This is the front of our new home. Isn't it lovely? I am in love with this house and am very eager to start our new lives there, though I will admit that it is bittersweet to think of leaving this, our home of 13 years...our first home and the only place each of our four children have ever lived.
I believe this new home will be a lovely place to raise our children. It is sufficiently large enough to entertain in and to house our rambunctious little ones, but not cavernous in any way. It even has the whirlpool tub I've longed for (I love to take baths, even in our tiny standard tub here, so I'm excited!). Since I am prone to guilt, I am glad the Lord has really made this easy and smooth, repeatedly answering my prayers to make it obvious whether this house was for us. I am comfortable moving ahead with this.
And in other great news: pending the results of inspections, we have a buyer for our current home. We got the offer within 6 days, an encouraging fact. So we'll see what happens next!
