We’re Home Owners

It’s official, we have our first house, and of course, our first mortgage. We’re excited although the dominant feeling right now is tiredness. It’s been a long road to get here, and we’re ready to get back to normal life.

A few things we’re thankful for…

  • The closing went off without a hitch.
  • Our stuff is here in Dallas and waiting to be delivered. (This was in doubt for a while.)
  • We have had so much help from family and friends through this whole process.

We’ll start moving in Friday night. We can’t wait to sleep in our own house.

We’re still shopping for a car since we sold our Jeep Liberty in Seattle. Jamie went to an auction in Dallas, and inspite of there being 10’s of thousands of cars there, we didn’t find the right one.

We’ll keep looking and we’re not in a huge hurry. God has so faithfully provided for us every step along the way that we know He’ll come through here.

Holly’s feeling much better. Thanks for your prayers.
