If you've just stumbled upon this post and have no idea what I'm talking about or what the Lord has done for us or why it's a miracle, I invite you to read our amazing story of God's miraculous provision here:
And now for the conclusion:
Yesterday our dreams came true! There was no last minute crisis or drama (except for waking up to a sick child!)! We actually closed as scheduled on the house that the Lord has provided for us!!!
I had planned to get someone to take a picture of Alan and me with our amazing realtor, Marcia, but I forgot until the last minute. At that point, Alan was in a hurry to get to a meeting and it was SO COLD and the wicked wind was chilling our spoiled-by-south-Georgia-winter bodies, which meant I just quickly snapped this photo of Alan with Marcia. I'm glad it turned out!
Marcia has been Awesome! She really accepted a challenge when she agreed to try to find a house for us and she has become way more than our realtor, she is a dear friend to our family and a witness to all that God has done for us!! Thank you Marcia for really going the extra mile for us!! :)
Several of you have asked me for pictures, so here are a few! As you will see, the house is beautiful and we are beyond excited! :)
This is the dining room, looking from the kitchen and towards the front door.
This is the family room also looking from the kitchen. The hall on the back left leads to the master bedroom and bathroom. The rest of the bedrooms are upstairs.
I love how I can stand in the kitchen and see into both the family room and the dining room and even see who walks in the front door! :)
The kitchen is truly the heart of this home! It is both beautiful and functional. It also contains a double blessing, with 2 ovens and 2 dishwashers! :)
Speaking of a double blessing, now would be as good a time as any to break the news to you gently -- this house has not just one, but two laundry rooms!!! One upstairs and one downstairs! :)
If anyone is still reading here after I've admitted to that blessing, I'll be back soon with more pictures and a moving update, but for now, I better get back to Work! ;)
