We get our house!!!

Remember that? We were trying to buy a house..... I know, I had practically forgotten too.

We had to switch banks, but it ended up being a huge blessing because everything is less expensive for us. Closing costs, insurance, our monthly payments.

Our closing date is Wednesday, October 1. Oh, how exciting.

I did have one minute when I freaked out- thinking about the economy. I wondered if we were absolutely crazy for going down to one income and purchasing a house. But, the thought was gone because we have prayed about both situations and we feel that this is where God wants us now.

Now we have to pick out paint colors......

Congratulations! What a huge step, but definitely a good one. Will we get to see pictures of the house?

Your experience seems to be similar to what we went through buying our current house. I recommend starting some finger exercises so you hands don't cramp up signing all of the papers.

Congrats, sweetie! I know how excited you are!

Woo hoo! I remember panicking too after Josh and I bought our house. We were laying in bed, I think it was the first week we were there and I told him I didn't think we could make the payments. Silly me.

So awesome that you are at peace about it.

And painting is the best part of owning your own home!

Congratulations! The nice thing about doing things according to God's timing is that you don't have to worry too much about what is happening in *man's* time (ie: the economy). I'm sure everything will be great! Good luck with the move!
