WE GOT THE HOUSE!!! WE GOT THE HOUSE!!! WE GOT THE HOUSE!!!

...In case you missed that....ummmm we got the house....aaaand I'm really excited about it! Jason on the other displayed the enthusiasm of a rock, as I danced around the room while calling to tell him, and replied, "Yeah, I had pretty much figured that." But that's a whole different post about repressed emotions blah, blah, blah.

Our Fabulous, wondrous, magnificent realtor Gesine (who has worked so hard and more than earned her keep showing us house upon house upon house!) called yesterday afternoon to tell us the bank accepted our offer and wants to close Feb 13th! Mortgage broker says no problem. Home inspection tomorrow at 10am! Landlord already got back to us saying that leaving end of February will be fine (that's a praise!) I can hardly believe it's actually happening!!!


As with all of our moves, we have tried to bathe this in prayer, asking for guidance, direction and wisdom the whole way. Still, in there it's often hard to separate sometimes if it's God's voice saying "yes" or your own desires saying "go ahead!"


But we really do believe this is of God and from God for many reasons. We have seen his hand all throughout the process in ways to lengthy to detail right now.


There is no way that we could afford such a HUGE (6 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom, on almost 3 acres on a dead end road), beautiful (9 foot celings, wood and tile floor, woodstove hearth, master suite etc. etc.) house at true market value. We feel BEYOND humbled and blessed to be getting such a wonderful home for such a small price tag. We feel that He is providing us with this house so that He can have us use it for His glory in some way. We have thrown around ideas of what that might be, but continue to wait for His plan in that! We definitely keep pinching ourselves and I'm not sure I truly believe it's real until the papers are signed and keys are in hand!
