our new home to be

I wish I had more time to share all we’ve been up to.  I will post some more pics of Santa’s workshop soon.  But for now, we have exciting news that our house offer did go through, and we should be closing in a few weeks!  Praise. The. Lord!  This has been a beautiful process of seeing His hand in what started a year ago when we were feeling led to put a For Sale by Owner sign in our yard.  Not planning on relocating, but open to where He would guide.  And knowing that as long as we were in our new house (small, but new), the mortgage would always be the bulk of our income.  Our house sold in July, and it’s been a lot of seeking, knocking, waiting, repeat.  When this house came up a week ago, I shared a bit in the last post.  I immediately fell in love.  So much so that I never went inside the house (Andy did), and we put an offer on it anyway.  I would drive by the house and have to look the other way because I was trying so hard not to get my hopes up.  Well, after we turned in our earnest money this morning, I got to take a peak inside.  It’s rough, and needs a lot of love.  But that’s good, because I’m already smitten.  Mostly because I walk through the hallways and door frames and see what it could be.  

It's a beautiful thing to know: 
He leadeth me, He leadeth me,
by His own hand, He leadeth me;
His faithful follower I would be,
for by His hand He leadeth me.
