We Found a House!

 We are moving!! Yippee!

God is so amazing and we are ever so grateful and blessed 
that we were able to find this place last week.

It's kind of a funny story actually....

Right now we live in an apartment.
We really love our place.
It's cozy, comfortable and the perfect size for just the two of us.

During the middle of this year we had discussed about
what we were going to do about our lease that needed 
to be re-signed in September. We were really debating whether we 
should re-sign our lease for another year or search for a house.   

We searched for houses with a possible rent to own option 
within our price range. Nothing.

After much searching, time was getting short and we would need to make a decision.

Just a week later, we still found nothing. 

We both agreed that we were happy just being together in our apartment
and we would re-sign for another year and search again when that time came.
We are just grateful for what God has already blessed us with and 
when our time to get into a house comes that He will make it happen. 

Well...I guess it was that time....little did we know.

God works in mysterious but miraculous ways!!  

A little over a week ago Josh's boss mentioned to him in passing
that his best friend (involved in real estate) 
had a house available just a few miles from our place where we are living now
and the price was a steal.
There was just one slight problem.....
We already signed our lease!
We went into the apartment office and told them the situation.
 They let us out of our lease no questions asked!! Can you believe that!
I don't know about you but any other apartment I have lived
in, once you signed the lease that's it and if you want to get out 
there is usually a cost or a penalty fee to go along with it.   
   
That same night we went to check out the house and fell in love. 
It has everything that we want and is the perfect "starter" home for us.
We placed a call to Josh's boss right after we left and said we want the house.
Josh's boss also knew that we would have to pay for the rest of the time in our 
apartment PLUS one months rent for the house.  He offered to pay the house rent
and we could just pay him back! 
 We are moving into our new place December 14th!
Just in time for Christmas!!
God is so amazing! 

Everything has happened so fast and
so many things fell perfectly into place!
I am feeling so overwhelmed 
with happiness and gratitude right now!


Here is our new place!!
