Oh goodness, where to even begin?
So remember how we were having some issues with the house we wanted to purchase and I told you that we had to put our dream of being homeowners on the back burner for the time being?
From the beginning mine and my husband's dream was to own a country home, with at least an acre, and some sort of fireplace or stove. When we first started looking for homes we quickly realized that there was nothing like that available, so we thought "well, at least let's find a home with a huge back yard".
Hence where that first home came into play. It wasn't exactly what we wanted, but the back yard was huge and it had that amazing fireplace.
Then things went downhill, the VA threw wrench after wrench into our path culminating in actually denying a loan because my husband is retiring and obviously, does not have another job yet. That's fine.
It felt like I was fighting God, begging him to please give us that home because it's what we wanted.
No it wasn't, and God knew that so he worked to give us what we DID want.
Are you ready for this????
When it became obvious that we couldn't buy for the moment, I started looking for places to rent, and again, nothing was coming up that caught our eye, I searched and searched and nothing....and then a few days ago, I clicked on a link I hadn't before, just as a last ditch effort to find a place.
And there it was, a quick phone call, application in, quick reply, papers signed and we have a home, and even better, it was EVERYTHING we were looking for to begin with.
Oh God is wonderful isn't He?
When are we going to learn that when He doesn't give us something, it's not because He doesn't love us, but because it's NOT what is meant for us and it's NOT what we wanted. He knows our hearts, He knows what we desire.
So let me show you our new home, and best part, we get into town at the end of June and move in July 1st. PERFECT TIMING.....because that's what God is all about :)
Country home, corner lot, horse property, 1 acre, only 1 neighbor and the rest is BLM land.
Foyer and below is the stairs leading to the top floor with the living room on the left.

I think the Lord knows us pretty well, don't you???
